Removed the oven door and bottom drawer. Removed the oven floor. The igniter bracket was angled in such a way that I had to remove a good deal of the metal thermal shielding underneath the burner element in order to access the bolts on the igniter bracket. Removed the igniter bracket and old igniter. Removed the old igniter from the bracket. Attached the new igniter to the igniter bracket. Snipped the wires attached to the old igniter leaving enough old wire intact to splice in the new igniter. Spliced the new igniter onto the old wiring. Attached the igniter and bracket back on the burner element. Replaced the thermal shielding. Tested igniter operation. Replaced oven floor. Replaced bottom drawer and oven door.
