First removed screws that held the bottom cover inside the oven. The igniter was underneath. Than I had to figure out how it was mounted to the stove. You couldn't remove the igniter from the gas burner tube until you pulled the lower draw completely out from the stove. Then with a small socket tool I reached all the to the back wall and removed the mounting screws. Then I disconnected the 2 power wires which enabled me to take the burner tube out through the oven. then you will be able to unscrew the igniter from the tube. Reverse the procedure to mount it back. Except for one small step I didn't expect. You had to cut the connectors from the old igniter and splice together the wires on the new igniter. Be sure to leave yourself enough wire to reach under the stove 6to 8 inches is good.
