Read the experience of others on this website with the same problem. I knew exactly what to expect and it all went as the dozen previous oven repair experts had said. I can add my name to the list of experts. The two screws attaching the igniter to the bracket twisted off exactly like everyone else experienced. GE really should look at developing a better attachment. My only problem was because my drill was larger than the bottom of the oven. I had to drill the holes on an angle. One of the holes was wallowed out more than the other. I had to use two different size screws and they were more difficult to screw in. Bottom line; I saved money, the oven works, my wife is happy, so I'm happy.
