Model# GLGF366ASD range
Turned off breaker
Removed oven door (see gas range manual for procedure)
Removed storage drawer on bottom of range.
Removed oven racks.
Removed oven bottom panel (2 screws in back of panel)
Removed oven shield (screw on left and right front of panel & nut in middle of panel)
At this point igniter was exposed
Removed igniter by removing the 2 self tapping screws securing igniter.
Note: threads on both screws stripped during removal, requiring both
screws to be cut off for removal.The stripping of threads of these screws
is probably normal due to the heating and cooling of the oven during
operation, making the threads on the screws brittle.
Marked the top wire on the igniter with a black sharpie
Cut both wires as close to the old igniter as possible.
Cut wires on new igniter about 10" long.
Connected new igniter with wire nuts (provided) making sure to connect wire from top of igniter to wire marked with sharpie.
Installed new igniter using 2 new #8x1/2" self tapping screws.
Pulled excess wire & wire nut connections down into the back of the storage drawer area making sure wires were resting on flanged area of panel.
Reinstalled oven shield, panel, racks, storage drawer, and oven door.
Turned breaker back on.
Oven works great.
Note: self tapping screws should be provided
