the rear glides were missing on the back of the drawer so the drawer would pull out but when pulled back in, would tip down and not catch on anything. I ordered the parts then found an instructional youtube and watched it. Easy repair, cheap!

Just moved into this house and inherited the oven so I don't know how old it is but I had to put something down in order to submit this review. Popping the glides in place took seconds. I am amazed that I found the parts so easily online and that they arrived so quickly. Usually the simplest of things turns into a time consuming project for me. Thank you!

Model# GLGF366ASD range
Turned off breaker
Removed oven door (see gas range manual for procedure)
Removed storage drawer on bottom of range.
Removed oven racks.
Removed oven bottom panel (2 screws in back of panel)
Removed oven shield (screw on left and right front of panel & nut in middle of panel)
At this point igniter was exposed
Removed igniter by removing the 2 self tapping screws securing igniter.
Note: threads on both screws stripped during removal, requiring both
screws to be cut off for removal.The stripping of threads of these screws
is probably normal due to the heating and cooling of the oven during
operation, making the threads on the screws brittle.
Marked the top wire on the igniter with a black sharpie
Cut both wires as close to the old igniter as possible.
Cut wires on new igniter about 10" long.
Connected new igniter with wire nuts (provided) making sure to connect wire from top of igniter to wire marked with sharpie.
Installed new igniter using 2 new #8x1/2" self tapping screws.
Pulled excess wire & wire nut connections down into the back of the storage drawer area making sure wires were resting on flanged area of panel.
Reinstalled oven shield, panel, racks, storage drawer, and oven door.
Turned breaker back on.
Oven works great.
Note: self tapping screws should be provided

Gas oven would not light

I checked the igniter resistance with an ohm meter. It read about 350 ohms. Voltage across igniter leads with igniter removed was 120 volts when the oven temperature control was turned on, so I knew the gas control and thermostat were ok. The new igniter has a resistance of about 220 ohms, so the difference was apparently enough to keep the oven from turning on. This is the second igniter I've replaced in this 20 year old oven, the first bad igniter had open resistance, obviously since it was visibly cracked. The repair went very fast, directions were great.
