1. First, I read other people's instructions on this site, and that helped quite a bit. My own model was attached somewhat differently, so I was unable to replace the igniter in the same fashion as others. 2. Turned off the power to the oven after having done the non-electrical work: removed cover plate from bottom of inside oven (two screws in the back) to expose the igniter, and the heat shield from underneath the oven once the oven drawer was removed. Old, old screws so that was a bit of rolling around on the floor. 3. After that it was fairly easy: turned off the breaker, snipped one igniter wire from a plastic harness assembly under the oven and the other from the electrical core underneath the oven which was attached with a clamp. 4. Removed two screws to release the igniter. Now I could work on it in the light. Stripped the old wire underneath the oven, attached the old clamp to the other new wire, and then clamped one wire on and joined the other to the plastic harness wire with the screw cap. It was a bit of effort merely to get at things, but not difficult. Breaker back on, and the oven now works perfectly.

Igniter was past-due for a change-out!

Just opened up the oven and went to work. Really easy repair. Removed floor of oven with two thumb screws. Removed flame diverter plate from burner with one screw. Removed igniter with two screws. Marked top wire, then untwisted old wire nuts to remove the old igniter. Replaced with new igniter and used enclosed new wire nuts. Reassembly was simply the reverse of above. Only issue - I needed longer arms to comfortably reach back into the oven!
