Removed the broiler pan in order to access the igniter. Removed the 2 retaining screws from the igniter. The hot surface igniter was obviously burned because a metal deposit crossed the arms of the igniter. There was a corrosion deposit on the burner that had also come into contact with the igniter. Removed the corrosion, had to cut the old electrical connector off and put it onto the new igniter by using the 2 wire nuts that came with it. Plug in the new igniter from the back side of the oven and reinstalled it with the 2 screws. Works great!!
