Gas range would not light

Replaced spark module but same problem persisted. Realized that the insulation on the spark ignitors were all cracked, causing a short.

Lesson learned: check the condition of the spark ignitors first as these have a tendency to crack. Even the smallest crack will cause a short.

Ordered new spark ignitors and plan to complete repair.

Had to take off burners and lift off top. Then I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires and removed old element. Then I did all steps in reverse to install new thermostat.

The burners turn and lift. I replaced two. One turned very easily, the other was stuck so I used liquid wrench and plumbers pliers. I did get it off. Once off, the old wires slipped right off and onto the new burners. Those twisted on very easily. Good as new easy breezy.

Could not turn the oven on or off.

Lifted the top up, only a few inches as the possibality of kinking the gas line was a issue. Took two screws out and replaced the unit, threaded the thermostat down through the oven. It was a breeze. I am 68 year old woman and did I myself.
Most importantly, the process of getting the part was amazing, ordered it in the AM and received it the next day (no extra charge)and by miday the range was good as new. Great service!

Even though the ceramic insulator looked new (white), it had become non-functional, replacement was simple, 2 phillips screws, reassemble and test. Now I will have to order the other 3.

I thought that the initial problem based on the users manual may had been the thermostat.
Removal of the old unit and installation of the new one was quite simple.
The only time lag was cleaning some of the surrounding areas of the oven as worked progressed.
As it turned out though, the problem wasn't the thermostat, but rather the igniter.
But, that was a fairly easy job as well!

Removed the old burners with a Plumbing Pipe Wrench by turning 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Disconnected (2) wires and replaced with new Sealed Burners. The simmer burner wires were slightly diffrent from the original but they do fit by opening the connector with screwdriver and then clamping once wire inserted.

first I removed the 6 screws that hold the oven in place in the oak cabinet. I slid a kitchen chair in place in front of the oven,then I slid the oven out of the cabinet cut out. Although the gas flex was still connected, I unpluged the electrical connection. I removed the old igniter, unpluged the igniter harness in the rear compartment. Then I installed the igniter in reverse.When the oven was pushed back in and secured with the 6 screws,I turned on and tested. Igniter glowed orange and the flame came on. Job was complete in 20 minutes.
