I was an easy fix on my unit due to my wiring access. All I needed to do was slide to all the internal racks and remove the cover at the bottom on the over. To access my wiring I removed the Broiler draw and then I was able to unplug the A/C 110 volt plug. Then I could see the two wire plug for the Igniter, so discounted that and removed the two screws holding the Igniter, remove it. Then placed the new one in place of the old one, installed the two screws and plugged in the Igniter plug. I then re-assembled the oven and plugged the A/C 110 volt plug and turned on the over to bake at 350 degrees and it worked perfectly.
