Took off the top plate at the bottom of the oven, and the flame spreader, removed 2 screws on the igniter, pulled out the broiler tray and unplugged it. Took longer to get off the floor than it did to replace the part.

My wife said the oven would not heat up, I took a look at it and determined it was not igniting. I figured there was an electric spark like my BBQ. When I took the pan out of the bottom of the oven I saw that it did not look like anything I had seen before. I looked it up online and found out it had a glow ignitor that just heats up and then ignites the gas. Mine wasn't doing anything so I removed it, got a part number off of it an plugged that into this site. It came up with the part, i ordered it, put it in and started it up. probably took about 45 minutes total including taking it out and then replacing it. Really easy and the oven is now working fine. Figured it would have been a couple hundred dollars to have someone come to the house and fix it, I did it myself for less than 50. Thanks Partselect.

Bottom oven burner wouldn't light.

  • Customer: James from Lino Lakes MN
  • Difficulty: Easy

If your igniter glows but the burner doesn't light, your igniter is more than likely bad. It should have at least 3.2V to gas valve when the igniter is glowing in order to open the gas valve. The repair is very easy with only a 5/16" nut driver equired to remove and replace the igniter. It's pretty much a plug and play reair.

oven took too long to light, then lit with a whump sound

  • Customer: Steve from Sierra Madre CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I read all the reports on your site pertaining to oven igniters and decided to order one. I was amazed when it arrived the next day. I got a lot of tips reading others replys so I lifted off the oven door, took out the racks, removed the 2 screws holding the old igniter and tried to pull it out. There was hardly any slack in the wires, so I pulled the stove away from the wall, took off a breadpan size cover in back and found the wires were zip tied to a tube. I cut the tie and unplugged the wires, but the new plug didn't match so I cut the new plug off and rejoined the wires with butt to butt crimp connecters, which I prefer to wire nuts. I used the insulation and new cover from your kit as my old part had the long ceramic insulator and put it all back together. It works like new again and saved me a lot of money. I am very pleased with your product and service, thanks.

I removed the flame baffle , removed the two screws that held the ignitor. Then I pulled the wires thru the back wall and disconnected . I had to cut the the connector and install with wire nuts because connector was different. Works fine now .

Oven wouldn't light

Same as the other entries in this section.
The only thing I would add is a hint for removing the broiler igniter. As you can see from the oven igniter, the wires connect with a plug. For the top igniter, the broiler, the plug goes through the insulation and then through a hole in the rear panel of the oven. So, when you pull on it, you will think it is stuck or the wire is pulled taut. That is because the plug hangs up on the rear panel.
Stick your finger through the square hole that you can see inside the oven, and follow the wire through the insulation. You will feel the small round hole in the back. You have to wiggle the wire up and around a bit to get the plug to fit through the hole. Then you will have the slack you need to change the plugs.
That way, you don't have to pull the whole oven out and break all the caulking seals.

Oven would'nt heat

First I removed the two screws that held the old element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires.
I replaced the element with the new one and tucked the connector in the insulation. Additional insulation came with the kit. I replaced the two screws that held the element in placed. Oven worked perfectly

Oven wouldn't light. Smell of gas before lighting

First I went online to find out about the availability of the part. In my search, I found what others had experienced and how they repaired it.
Second, I ordered the part and followed others stories on their repair efforts.
Third, I unplugged the range and removed the racks.
Fourth, I removed the bottom of the oven which lifts out back first.
Fifth, I removed the wing nut securing the flame difusser making it easier to access the element.
Sixth, I had read that others had problems saving the original screws and/or threaded holes. I sprayed some WD-40 on both screws. They came out and back in without a hitch.
Seventh, I removed and replaced the element, snap out, snap in.
Eighth, I turned on the oven. It took about 15 seconds to glow but WOW, it lit 5 seconds after that. I am my wife's hero!

I removed the back of the range to disconnect the wires to the igniter. Then I removed the two screws holding the igniter, screwed the new one in and reconnected the wires in back.
I was really pleased how easy it was to find the part on the website and how quickly the part came. The whole job was a snap. Thanks!

igniter glowed, but oven would not light or stay lit

  • Customer: Daniel from Grafton WI
  • Difficulty: Really easy

The igniter was located in the bottom of the stove or broiler section. It was hard to get at, but with a little trial and error I figured out how to take the plate between the oven and broiler. Now the igniter was easily accessable. 2 screws on the igniter bracket, then simply unplug the electrical. The igniter supplied had the identical electrical plug (plug and play). The new igniter works like a charm-oven ignites in about 15 seconds. Piece of cake!!!!!

IGNITER WOULD GLOW BUT STOVE WOULDN'T LIGHT

I NOTICED THAT THE IGNITOR WOULD GLOW BUT THE STOVE WOULDN'T LIGHT - I GOT THE MODEL NUMBER OF THE STOVE AND GOOGLED THE MAYTAG MODEL NUMBER. CAME UPON YOUR WEBSITE AND REALIZED THAT 94% OF THE TIME THE PROBLEM WAS THE AMPS WERE NOT ENOUGH TO LIGHT THE STOVE. I LOOKED AT ALL OF THE STORIES ON HOW EASY IT WAS TO FIX. I ORDERED THE PART AND RECEIVED IT WITHIN 3 DAYS. I OPENED THE DOOR PART WAY AND LIFTED IT STRAIGHT UP TO REMOVE IT. I PULLED OUT THE BOTTOM BROILER PLATE BY GRABBING THE BACK ON PULLING UP. I UNDSCREWED THE WING NUT OF THE FLAME BAR AND HAD EASY ACCESS TO THE IGNITER. I REMOVED THE TWO NUTS FROM THE OLD IGNITER. UNPLUGGED THE IGNITER FROM THE EASY ACCESS DOOR FROM THE BACK AND PLUGGED IN THE NEW IGNITER. REPLACED THE ACCESS DOOR AND ATTACHED THE IGNITER WITH THE TWO NUTS. PUT THE FLAME BAR BACK ON, PUT THE BROILER PLATE BACK ON, PUT THE DOOR BACK ON, PLUGGED IN THE STOVE TURNED IT ON AND SUCCESS. IT WAS SO EASY. I KNOW IN OUR AREA I WOULD HAVE PAID NEAR $200 FOR A SERVICE TECHNICIAN TO COME OUT AND DO WHAT I DID IN APPROX. 20 MINUTES AND $50 FOR THE PART. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU WEBSITE TO HELP US NOT SO TALENTED APPLIANCE REPAIR HOMEOWNERS.
