Oven would not ignite

  • Customer: William from Cottonwood AZ
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The only difficulty with following the supplied video, is that my ignitor did not come out as easily as a few turns of the screwdriver. The screws stripped as I tried to remove them, making them twirl in their holes. I had to apply back pressure for them to come off and free the ignitor for replacement. Other than that, the installation went smoothly, and the oven sprang to life within 10 seconds of turning it on.

Oven was taking too long to reach desired temperature as well as emitting gas fumes.

I simply followed the "general" instructions from the online video "Partselect" provides and perused the instructions included in the kit. The OEM igniter was much longer than the replacement but the new part was spec'd just fine. It was necessary for me to open up the back of the stove in order to retrofit the igniter leads to the original block connector and install the heat resistant padding included in the kit. The additional necessary hardware fit very nicely inside the oven. The stove's oven fired up without any problems and spared me the expense of purchasing a new oven. Thank you very much "Partselect".

The igniter on the oven would glow but the gas would not light

I removed and replaced the igniter. I described these symptoms on the web site and it detailed that90% of the time by installing a new igniter it will fix the described problem. So I ordered the part and installed the part and everything worked OK. The only tool I had to use was a screw driver to remove three screws. It took about half an hour. If I had to do it again it would take about 15 minutes.

Unplugged oven. Removed door,racks,and bottom shelf. Removed screws from ignitor and unplugged it from connection. Installed new ignitor with screws and plugged in to connection. Tucked wires behind insulation as they were before. Installed previously mentioned items and turned on to check. Worked great and am very pleased with PartSelect and the assistance they offer.

Ordered oven Igniter kit PS1573892 which cost $73.00. Received the kit with instructions easy to follow to install. I was surprised how easy it was to repair, with the help of my wife we did the job in about 2 hours, the oven now works great. I really saved a bundle of money doing this myself, a local repair service wanted $114.00 for the same part and $200.00 labor to install and this is the gospel truth. I am 96 years old.

Removed burner pan screws,igniters, gas tubes & burners. Changed 2 igniters, removed rust & repainted ends of 2 of the tubes (heatproof paint). New burners were made a hair smaller than original but locked in O.K...Now, the hard part...disconnected all four tubes from gas valve assembly. (Had to shut off gas to house in order to remove main gas line to stovetop.) Had to remove valve box in order to remove/replace frozen valve. Unit is 25 years old, works as and looks new...Rust was caused by boil-overs.

Unscrew the bottom cover, remove the old ignitor. Reverse the process to install. Hardest part was getting the bottom cover screws out because of rust. Otherwise, very simple.

Make sure power to the oven is disconnected. Remove all shelves. Partially open the bottom door and yank it out so it is out of your way. The igniter is next to the back and upper wall of the oven inside the lower (broiler) compartment. The igniter is held by two screws which I opened using a 5/16 or 8mm nut driver. After removing the two screws, remove the back plate using a regular phillips screwdriver. Next, pull out the two igniter wires until the connector comes out. Pressing the side tabs disconnect the igniter from the connector. Connect the new igniter. If nesessary, replenish some of the insulation with new insulation that arrived with the new igniter. Push excessive igniter wiring back, remount the backplate using the phillips screwdriver. Remount the new igniter using the nutdriver. Remount the bottom door. Put all shelves back. You are done.

There were NO directions in the box, only a schematic. I was unable to locate the old one as my husband had removed it. So I had to guess which color wire connected to which plug. Good thing I guessed right the 1st time! so you might want to include installation instructions going forward.
