Replace an old igniter

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!

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.

Oven would not light

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

Oven very slow to preheat

Based off the information I found online, I determined we had a bad igniter. 1- disconnect oven from any power sources. If you have a gas model, be sure to valve off gas at this time as well. 2- Remove the racks and bottom pan in the oven. There is 2 push/pull locking mechanisms at the back of the oven that hold the tray in. Once you have this out you should have access to the gas tube and igniter. 3- Using a 5/16 nut driver, remove the 2 bolts on the mounting plate and the igniter should be free at this time. 4- Remove the bottom drawer to the oven. This will give you access to the electrical connections. 5- Remove the 2-3 screws that hold on the access panel toward the back of the unit. 6- Following the wires down, find the plug for the igniter and unplug. After this is done pull the wiring up through the oven and it will be the same to put back together just in reverse order. Relatively simple project that should take anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on how handy you are. After reinstallation our preheat times went from 45 minutes to 10

Oven burner ignitor would glow but burner would not light.

Hardest part was disconnecting the gas line and moving the range out of the counter. Removed oven door for easier access to the igniter from the front. And the clean up. Installing the igniter was relatively easy from the rear of the range. I was not able to install the igniter through the front of the range because the wires were not long enough to pull the igniter forward through the front so it was necessary to pull the range out from the counter and install it from the rear. Then it was just a matter of removing a small dust cover at the rear by removing one screw. Then removing old insulation and disconnecting wires. Remove 2 mounting screws that held the igniter in place. These screws had to be removed from the front. Pushed the old igniter out through the rear of the range. Connected the new igniter wires. Pushed the new igniter through the rear of range and replace the new insulation. Mounted the new igniter with 2 screws. Reassembled everything and it worked ok.
