The stove was older so the burner was hard to get out. The small screw heads broke off, so I had to carefully center punch and drill out the screw bodies. The igniter screw was also frozen in the pot metal burner. That screw requied drilling and tapping with the installation of a new 6-32 screw. Once the burner was refurbished, the igniter mounted easily. Afte attaching the gas line and igniter wire, the burner worked great.

Removed all of the grates, control knobs and gas diffusers. Unscrew the drip pans, two on each pan, which attach the pans to the gas supply. Raised the drip pans from the top and unplugged the ignitors from all pans. Remove the top and the rubber deflector over the ignitor switch. The ignitor switch snaps off and on. One of the seals under the drip pan was broken and needed replaced. I would recommend ordering these also. Turned out this was a good time to give everything a goo cleaning then replace as removed.

Burner set screws froze up, was able to break 2 of 3 free and broke 3rd off. Used new simular screws to re- thread and fasten burner back in place. Bit of work but everything working. Used oppertunity to clean and re-level while I was at it. Everything good to go.

put the knob on the stove. if you want to buy a knob for $30+ just know that that is only for ONE knob, not a set. And it doesn't specify that when you are ordering.

Knobs were too old.

The electrode was sparking to ground through the cracked ceramic rather than within the ignition zone. I used spray electronic contact cleaner to free rusted screws (different metals often contract at different rates and separate under the very cold spray). Replacing the electrode was a simple substitution. Also sprayed the spade terminal pair to remove any corrosion. Worked first time.
