The broiler igniter and oven igniter are the same - WITH ONE MPORTANT DIFFERENCE- the plug! I tried to just switch them since we dont ever use the broiler but could not, due to the plug. I think that is part of planned obsolescence ! Anyway, I left the door and the power on - you guessed it, rebel! If you get a tingle from replacing this part you shouldnt be trying to fix it on your own! I removed the oven racks, took two small screws from rear of oven floor out, removed base plate. Two more small screws released the defective part. Pulled the plug wire through the back of oven and unclipped the connector. Plugged new part in, tucked the wires back into the insulation, replaced two screws on the igniter. Test fired oven- worked like a champ. Shut burner off, reinstalled base plate and screws and put the oven racks back in. Easy!
