I had to pull the strorage drawer under the stove out to get at the electric connection for the ignitor. Then I removed the plate that coveres the burner and ignitor, and used a nut driver to remove the ignitor screws. I had to cut off the quick wire connectors from the old ignitor because the new one is just bare wires. FYI this is how the ignitor comes from every place I looked at, not just part select.com. After using the provided wire nuts to connect the new ignitor wires to the old ignitor wires that still had the quick connectors attached I screwed the ignitor back on. Put the covers on and done. It probably took about 30 minutes and saved me a bunch of money instead of having to call someone to repair something this easy.
