I simply followed the "general" instructions from the online video "Partselect" provides and perused the instructions included in the kit. The OEM igniter was much longer than the replacement but the new part was spec'd just fine. It was necessary for me to open up the back of the stove in order to retrofit the igniter leads to the original block connector and install the heat resistant padding included in the kit. The additional necessary hardware fit very nicely inside the oven. The stove's oven fired up without any problems and spared me the expense of purchasing a new oven. Thank you very much "Partselect".

I removed and replaced the igniter. I described these symptoms on the web site and it detailed that90% of the time by installing a new igniter it will fix the described problem. So I ordered the part and installed the part and everything worked OK. The only tool I had to use was a screw driver to remove three screws. It took about half an hour. If I had to do it again it would take about 15 minutes.

Unplugged oven. Removed door,racks,and bottom shelf. Removed screws from ignitor and unplugged it from connection. Installed new ignitor with screws and plugged in to connection. Tucked wires behind insulation as they were before. Installed previously mentioned items and turned on to check. Worked great and am very pleased with PartSelect and the assistance they offer.

Ordered oven Igniter kit PS1573892 which cost $73.00. Received the kit with instructions easy to follow to install. I was surprised how easy it was to repair, with the help of my wife we did the job in about 2 hours, the oven now works great. I really saved a bundle of money doing this myself, a local repair service wanted $114.00 for the same part and $200.00 labor to install and this is the gospel truth. I am 96 years old.

Make sure power to the oven is disconnected. Remove all shelves. Partially open the bottom door and yank it out so it is out of your way. The igniter is next to the back and upper wall of the oven inside the lower (broiler) compartment. The igniter is held by two screws which I opened using a 5/16 or 8mm nut driver. After removing the two screws, remove the back plate using a regular phillips screwdriver. Next, pull out the two igniter wires until the connector comes out. Pressing the side tabs disconnect the igniter from the connector. Connect the new igniter. If nesessary, replenish some of the insulation with new insulation that arrived with the new igniter. Push excessive igniter wiring back, remount the backplate using the phillips screwdriver. Remount the new igniter using the nutdriver. Remount the bottom door. Put all shelves back. You are done.

Oven Failed to light

Once I noticed the oven failed to light, I checked the igniter and saw it was glowing. At that point I did some research and found that the igniter could still be bad even though it glowed. This was the most common cause of ovens not lighting. A bad igniter will not glow as bright as a new one. An igniter had to draw a minimum of 2.8 amps in order for the safety valve to open and supply gas to the burner. After checking the safety valve with an ohmmeter, I found it to be good, so I ordered a new igniter. Once I received the new part , it took about 20 minutes to install.

Two mounting screws were bonded from heat and stripped the threads.

Unplug power cord to oven.Remove lower panel from inside of oven to access flame rail cover.Remove wingnut from cover to access flamerail and igniter.Using phillips head screwdriver,remove 2 screws from lower access plate located at rear of oven to access igniter wiring.Disconnect both wires, then using a nutdriver,unscrew and remove igniter from flamerail.To install, simply reverse instructions.It was extremely simple and fun to do.But most rewarding of all was the sense of accomplishment from doing the repair myself not to mention of course the money i saved not having to call a technician. Thanks guys!

As with the majority, igniter would glow, oven would not light.

Because of the video provided by Parts Select I felt confident before even starting and that confidence stayed with me to the end..I removed bottom of oven , removed the philips screw in the front end of the burner and removed it.. Losened and removed the igniter replaced it and reassembled..The only caution I can give, if you find the screws holding the ignited on the burner hard to take off, apply a SMALL amount of WD40 to the threads and wait a couple minutes before removing..I was fortunat in the fact that my plug matched the replacement part with no cutting of wires..I normally don't get breaks like that.. Thanks Parts Select.

First turn gas off at pipe. Remove oven door, racks and bottom cover. Go to back of oven and unplug oven igniter. Back in front, unscrew 2 nut screws from igniter. To make things easier I tied a piece of string to the plug of the igniter, once I unscrewed the igniter I pulled it out with the string attached. When replacing I tied the string to the plug of the new igniter and pulled it from the back so the plug was able to come through, plug in the new igniter, screw it in place, replace the racks, covers, door and you're ready to enjoy some baking
