My mom did the repair for me. We did not have the right tools for the job which made it harder to do. First I flipped the breaker. Then we took out the oven racks. We then took the bottom metal part off the oven. This exposed the shield part and we removed it. Then she cut the wires and connected the new igniter the same way the old one was connected. It took about thirty minutes. We could do it again in about fifteen with the right tools. We went and priced new stoves the cheapest was 350.00. I'm so excited that my stove is working properly again.
