Tripped Circuit for the stove. Removed Oven Door and racks. Removed 2 screws at back of oven and removed oven bottom tray (floor). Removed the Broiler trays. Removed 2 screws from the pate at back of oven to get to the connections for the igniter. Disconnected wires for igniter. Removed 2 screws from the igniter and had to cut the 2 wires (to re-use connections). Using the wire nuts that came with the igniter, spliced the connections from the old ignter to the new one (making sure of the correct wire connections). Replaced the igniter in the reverse order. Total time 15 min. I did not have to disconnect the gas (or shut it off) or move the stove out to work on it.

Broiler worked but bake did not

I determined that the broil setting worked and it was just the bake function which was not working on my 8-year old Hotpoint range/oven. A quick search on the web brought me to PartSelect where I found excellent advice and instructions. My model oven has two igniters, one for broil and one for bake. I removed the bottom igniter which is for the bake function. I didn't even need to unhook the gas or get behind the range. I did remove the oven door for easier access. Because I have a multi-meter I did test the igniter just to be 100% certain it was shot, following an instructional video I found online. I ordered the replacement and the installation was fast and easy. My oven works perfectly again.

oven igniter

Not too hard. The hardest part was taking the old igniter out. There are two screws to take off, but getting at them was very hard. I could put a socket on it , but I couldn't put the ratchet on because the space you are working with is so tight. Luckily I had a very small wrench I was able to get on the small screw. After that the rest was pretty easy. I read what to do on this website and everything went pretty smooth. Except for when I was putting the new igniter on I put a socket on the screw to screw it in and it fell off in between the door and oven and dropped down there somewhere. I tried to find it with a flash light , But it's gone for good. I had another socket so I was able to screw it in with my spare. Luckily where it fell I don't think it affects the stove. My stove works great now and I'm very happy. It was nice to read how to fix it on line.

It took longer to watch the video on how to replace the hinges than it did to replace them. Simple and easy. Video knocked it out of the park for ease. And now the oven door works great! thanks!!!! Video suggested if you're replacing one side do both, couldn't agree more.

I removed the racks, bottom of the oven, and the access panel underneath. I removed the old igniter and wired in the new one. Remounted it and replaced the parts. It took me longer to take off/replace the screws for the oven bottom and access panel than it did to actually replace the part. Very easy job.

This repair was super easy. I removed the two screws holding the oven sensor in place, pulled the sensor from the oven wall to expose the two wires attached to the sensor cut and spliced in the new sensor as per instructions. The supplied wiring kit made this splice very easy. I then reinserted the wires and sensor from the oven wall, put the screws back in place tested the oven. Oven now works like new and I got bonus points from a happy wife!
