Really easy.
1) Pulled up on oven door and removed it.
2) Removed lower drawer to access springs.
3) Pay attention to which hole the springs are attached under the oven.
4) Remove spring with Needle Nose Plier. If you remove by hand, the spring will likely cut your finger....like mine.
5) Unscrew 3 screws of old hinge assembly.
6) Reverse process when placing new assembly in place.

MOST TROUBLE I HAD WAS REMOVING THE SCREWS THAT WERE LOCATED UNDER THE BRACKET. I HAD TO SLIP THE OVEN DOOR OFF FIRST TO GIVE ME MORE ROOM. VERY HARD TO GET TO THESE SCREWS BECAUSE OF WHERE THEY WERE LOCATED UNDER THE BRACKET. I HAD TO TWIST AND TURN THE OLD IGNITER TO GET TO IT. WHEN FINALLY REMOVED, I REPLACED THE OLD IGNITER WITH THE NEW ONE USING MY OWN SCREWS. I TWISTED THE WIRES TOGETHER, AND REPLACED THE BAFFLES, THE OVEN FLOOR, AND THEN THE DOOR. THE OVEN FIRED UP WONDERFULLY! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROMPT SERVICE FOR GETTING ME THE PART QUICKLY AND CORRECTLY.

First i removed the inside bottom of the oven where i could get to the actual glow plug igniter and removed the two screw that held the igniter in place. I than pulled the entire oven out allowing me to access the two wires connecting the igniter to the stove. I disconnected the wires and had to splice the wires as to be able to reach the appropriate connections. I reinstalled the igniter and upon testing the igniter worked properly. The entire process took me one hour.

Followed suggestions of previous posts. Removed oven door, warming drawer, pan in bottom of oven. Removed element to replace igniter. One thing I would add is I put a small piece of electical tape on the heads of the two 1/4 in. screws for the rear element bracket. This kept them from falling out of nutdriver.

THE IGNITER WOULD NOT GLOW TO IGNITE THE GAS

REMOVE THE BROILER PAN TO GET AT THE 2 NUTS THAT HOLD THE GAS BURNER, REMOVE THEM AND THEN YOU CAN GET AT THE 2 NUTS ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE IGNITER.

Broken Hinge

  • Customer: Michael from Greer SC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Assumed this broken hinge was going to be an expensive service call. Decided to try and fix it myself. Ordered the part off partselect.com and got some repair tips off the website that made this a breeze. I am not handy at all but was able to complete the replacement in less than 30 minutes and spent only $30 on the part. Just needed to unscrew the old hinge and release the spring from under the stove (which I accessed by pulling out the drawer). It would have cost me over $100 to just get a service person to look at it.

Oven would not heat

  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires...

I really do not have the time to do this right now, however, I feel that it is important to tell everyone that dealing with PartSelect allowed me to repair the stove and please my wife in the easiest way possible. I will use PartSelect forever....

When turned on, oven wouldn't ignite and gas wouldn't flow

  • Customer: Tom from Neenah WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Diagnosed the problem as igniter failure and called local parts outlet. They gave me the part number, but said they were out and directed me to another vendor. When the part came, it was the wrong shape but I tried it anyway. Result - the igniter glowed which allowed the gas to flow, but igniter, being the WRONG PART, didn't ignite the gas, allowing a dangerous build-up of gas.

I then went to PartSelect, looked up the part, saw it was the correct one, ordered it (arrived within 3 days) and, because I already had the pans and covers off the oven, it was a matter of minutes to install. Works like a charm and, though I usually like to buy locally, I'll check out PartSelect first next time!

Oven would not heat

I removed the 2 screws that held the bottom oven plate in place. Then I removed the one screw holding the bottom burner in place in the front. I then reached into the rear area and unscrewed the last 2 screws securing the burner. I disconnected the igniter wires at their push-on connections and lifted the whole burner/igniter unit out. I relaced the igniter using the 2 attachment screws, and I cut the old igniter's wires with connectors and spliced them into the new igniter's wires, using the ceramic wire nuts that came with the new igniter. I reassembled the unit and it worked first time.

i followed the same directions others had posted - good tip to remove the oven door for easier access - i was nervous about stripping the wires to splice together, so i made my hubby strip the wires for me :) - did all the rest myself. no trouble at all - if a girl can do it, anyone can do it!

Oven will not heat

  • Customer: Peter from Danbury CT
  • Difficulty: Easy

Checked on this website for ideas. A 20+ year repairman posted that the problem is the control valve and I should replace the igniter while I'm there. The valve was priced at $189 and the igniter $60. I decided to try the igniter first and all is well. Valve not needed.
Steps; remove; door, lower tray, and oven floor pan. Disconnect two igniter wires. Use 6mm sock to loosen gas feed tube, then lift tube up a couple of inches to access igniter screws. Remove them, and reverse process with new part. I tried to R&R the igniter without loosening the gas feed tube but it's a real PITA. Good luck, easy fix.

broiler works/oven not so much!

Ignitor is easily reached by removing the bottom of the oven floor. Machine screws remove easily when appliance is relatively new, but from experience, they may give you some trouble when stove is 5+ years old! Our part came in a timely fashion, even when ordered over a holiday weekend . Replace ignitor just as the old one came out-one word to the wise...scrape off enough silver coating on the wires so that a good contact is insured before splicing with the wing-nut included. Having had many GE stoves, I notice that the factory-installed ignitors have a shorter and shorter life; I'll be keeping PartSelect's website handy!
