I opened the oven and cleared the racks;
removed the cover of the oven heating area;
took off the nut holding the blast shield on;
removed all the screws holding the drip tray on;
some were quite rusty and fell out in my hand;
removed the 2 screws holding the igniter in;
and the one scew that allows adjustment;
pulled out the igniter and noticed the old one was connected with wire nuts while the new one had a module plug;
cut off the module plug and stripped back the wires;
applied the wire nuts;
stuck the wires back in tjhe hole and screwed it all back together-done,
I must say the best part of the repair was googling the problem "amana oven ignition troubleshooting" and getting a helpful discussion of the problem and a solution and a link to the parts suply house, It couldn't have been simpler. I got the part 2 days after ordering it online.
