Very easy. I disconnected the original burner with one turn as well as the two wire connections for the electronic igniter. I then connected the wires to the same positions on the new burner and placed the new burner in place with one half turn to match the indented openings to secure the burner tightly in place.

The burner would not lite. There was an intermittent spark from that burner.

Your site was easy to navigate, which made determining the problem from other customers easy, and choosing the correct part to replace the malfunctioning burner.

The malfunctioning burner was easy to remove by twisting it a quarter turn counter clockwise, removing the two wires and replacing it with the new burner cap with electrode.

All the burner caps had badly rusted; tip-off was the smell of gas.

Our handyman took off the burner caps and checked after we reported smelling gas. We ordered the replacements here, and they arrived by only the 2nd business day, instead of 3-5 as expected. The only hard part was scouring off the rust, with SOS pads, from the stove top before putting on the new burner caps (a simple plug-in)!! This is very important to check on your stove; you could blow-up your house! The gas was escaping under the old burner cap, through the rusted-out portions.

Intermittent but rare spark when I went to start the rage: spark module definitely was toast or on its way out

The trickiest part was locating the elusive spark module. I am not certain I took the best route, but not considering all the wrong routes in trial and error, it was the most expedient. Certainly there must have been a single something to remove to get to this frequently faulted part..

Anyhow, thanks to the great part, the stove works really well again.

I have a Magic Chef gas stove, The top burner came off with ease, just a quarter turn then pull up to expose igniter. Only two wires to remove and two phillips head screws to remove to release igniter. I was done in 5 minutes.

We were at a loss for a long time without my boost burner and then while checking all the rest of the burners my husband discovered that all of them had a massive amount of rust on the underneathe side of the burners and that worried me. Well as usual my husband took care of my worries when he discovered Parts Select. We both were pleasantly surprised when we found out that you had what we needed. And the installation was less than 5 minutes, WOW, THAT WAS GREAT! Thanx a million!

Replacement of a Dead Spark Module

The spark module pulses a stepped up voltage to all four burner sparks at the same time regardless of which burner you want to ignite. I read that this part lasts about 10 years. I don't cook much and it lasted 13 years. On my Magic Chef the part is behind the right side wall panel. Lift the range top,remove all the screws that hold the right side panel in place. This replacement can done without opening any gas fittings.

Burner igniter was not lighting the pilot. Needed replacement.

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.

Old burner's flame was coming out below the burner.
