We replaced 3 of 4 igniters on the stove top according to the previously submitted recommendations. Easy to do butt after putting one of the modules back together, we found one igniter still didn't function. We discovered the solution was to run the connecting wire under the gas tubing. Apparently it was compressed when it was over the top of the tube and not under it.

My used stove had been dropped by the previous owner. While I could live with the minor scratches on one side the wooden shims holding up one corner were annoying. A new leveling leg was less than $2. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to straighten the mounting hole and screwed the new leg in. This used stove was originally $2000 but I bought it for $999. the new leg plus shipping was about $10. What a deal.

Watched the u-tube video of the repair linked to the PartSelect website and followed the instructor. The screw on the old igniter was a bit rusty and stuck on tight but it came off with a bit of coaxing. I can't the part arrived so quickly and that the repair was so simple. I am so happy we did not have to buy a new stove!

I read some of the other comments and my problem seemed the same so I order the flat style igniter kit as suggested watched the video that Parts Select had, just to see any hidden tricks or tips .The installation was done in about 10 minutes it took longer to put the door and grates back in place simple. Phillips screwdriver was all I needed, I had a flashlight to see better cause my eyes aren't what they used to be

The range in my classroom had the leveling legs broke off by the summer staff. I ordered two new leveling legs and the night custodian replaced them in about 45 minutes and them leveled the stove. Parts were just as stated and easy to order.

Removed oven door, pulled oven out to acess the rear of unit. Removed two screws inside the oven that connect the ignitor to the mounting bracket. Used flashlight to find plug that is connected to the ignitor located at the rear of the oven. I could see the plug in space provided in the oven rear cover plate. Did not have to remove anything to access the plug. Unplugged connector, tied string on connector and removed ignitor from inside the oven. Tied string line on new ignitor plug and pulled the new ignitor plug to the back of the oven by pulling on the string line. Connected plug and installed screws in the mounting bracket and turned on oven. It worked fine. The hardest thing to do was pull the oven from the wall and put it back. The wife had a good opportunity to clean the crap from the floor under the oven so it was good to move it out. Easy job and so far everything is ok. I am very satified with the part

Based on user comments it seemed like my problem was being caused by a faulty igniter. I didn't do any voltage or continuity checks like some of the other comments said, although that route was provide a definite yes or no regarding the cause. For instructions, just watch the video. They are dead on. The screws holding your igniter onto the burner assembly may be stripped so you might have to buy replacements or use spares. I replaced the factory sheet metal screws with 10-24 machine screws, nuts, and washers I had laying around the house. After reassmebly, I tested the oven and it lit right up and stayed burning until it reached temperature. My wife baked a test batch of cookies the next day and they were delicious.
