After research on my computer I determined it was the igniter. I pulled out the range unplugged the power but not the gas and removed the door, racks and bottom of the oven (2 screws). The part on your site looked and measured exactly like the igniter I had and needed to replace. I ordered it immediately. Spent a little time giving it a good cleaning since it was moved out from the wall. The part arrived the next morning! Still disconnected from the power I unscrewed the old igniter. After removing the warming drawer, I unplugged the igniter from the power source. I removed the old igniter and reversed the directions and placed the new one in. Very easy. I replaced the bottom of the oven, racks and doors. Plugged her in and she fired right up! Bonus...my oven heats up very fast now. Over the years I got used to it taking longer and longer. I am a housewife and this was a "piece of cake".
