First I turned off the circuit breaker to the oven. Then, I removed the base of the oven (the oven floor) by easily removing two screws. I also removed the flame guard by removing a screw. That easily exposed the old oven igniter. I removed the two small screws that held that in place. The igniter is connected by two wires, which you'll have to snip. Snip those very close to the igniter (leave about an inch of wire on the igniter). Using a wire stripper, remove about 1/2 inch of the outer sheath of the existing wires. On the new igniter, snip the wires leaving about 2 inches still connected to the igniter. Using the wire stippers, remove about 1/2 inch of the outer sheath. Using the plastic wire caps that came with the new igniter, connect the wires from the oven to the corresponding wire on the new igniter. Screw the new igniter back in place. Replace the flame guard and oven floor. Turn on the circuit breaker and start cooking again!

Drip pan was beyond cleaning and I'm having a party....as if anyone is going to look at my drip pans, but you never know!

Well, gee...first I opened the box, then, with skill and dexterity, I opened the plastic bags that the drip pans came in. Carefully, cautiously, I removed the offending drip pans and heave-hoed them into the garbage can after first assessing their possible use and/or recycle-ability. Lastly, but not leastly, and most enthusiastically, I gently and joyfully placed the brand-spankin' new ones on the stovetop. It was bliss. Hope my party guests notice! "Hey! Are those new drip pans? How do you just keep them so shiney and bright?"

This hard to find GE part number was easy to find at PartSelect.com. The GE dealer said the part was permanently out of stock. Lift lid and remove a few screws and pull off two wires and replace switch plate and reconnect everything. Good to go.

Erratic burner ignition, re-light.

  • Customer: Bill from San Jose CA

Remove bottom plates and deflector from oven, remove old igniter. Remove bottom drawer and panel to expose wiring. Cut wires, used supplied wire nuts to splice. The time consuming part of this job was having to clean all the parts before reassembly, and having to extract screws that were rusted into place due to heat and spillage. One of the igniter screws was stripped, and was very difficult to remove. The first part in your "probably cause" list was the right one! Thanks for the good service, and a useful website!
