Using a stubby phillips, remove the two screws from the bottom of the front panel. Remove panel by lifting out at the bottom, then up to unhook the two top tabs. Set to the side, be careful of the wiring to the door switch, no need to undo. Using a 1/4" nut driver or wrench, remove the screw attaching the igniter to the burner. Unplug the old igniter and plug in the new one. Be careful as the igniter is fragile and can break. Replace the retaining screw. Reattach the front panel, be careful to route the door wiring so it does not pinch. Replace the two bottom screws.
