pulled out appl,removed door,racks,lifted oven bottom to remove,removed both oven and broiler ignitors---went to back of appl to remove gas control valve and replaced--used old oven ignitor in broiler(took chance it would work-it did!)installed new ignitor in oven--tested perfectly--point of info if you have an oversize or dancing flame in oven or broiler--remove flame tube and with 1/2 inch open wrench tighten orfice all the way until it stops--don't force or over tighten-- (the air shutter should open all the way)--flame should be about an 1 inch with white tips--adjust as needed-overall repair including adjustments took about an hour-hope this helps--and i'm not a professional repairman
