This was VERY easy and I've never worked on this type of appliance before.

First, take off the grate, thermal plate, etc that are resting on top of the stove (this is all the stuff you take off to clean the stovetop).

Then, carefully unscrew the two screws holding the burner to the gas pipe. Grab the screws and set them aside so they don't fall back into the stove, then pick the burner up off the stove.

once you have the burner a few inches above the stove surface, wiggle off the single wire by grabbing it on the metal part (not by the wire) and gently wiggling it off.

Grab new burner, push on wire and sit it on stove, use a finger in the gas pipe to align it and put the two screws in. you're done.

Ignitor couldn't be removed because the screws were ruined.

This is the second time I have had to call a repair person to GE the old screws off. It isn't the fault of the part. Better original screws would have helped. It was very frustrating an expensive. I would say check the screws before you order the part.

Switch Spark would not stop sparking.

I was able to remove the top cover by unscrewing 10 srews. Once the cover was off I removed the plastic shield above the damaged switch. Then unplugged the 2 wires off the switch. Pulled the faulty switch out. Replaced it with the new switch and plugged in the 2 wires. Reinserted the plastic cover put the top cover on and put the screws in place. Tested the new switch and worked fine.

Wow, ordered the part here and it arrived in 18 hours!! Job was fairly straight forward but the screw holding it in place was corroded and stuck. Several heating and cooling cycles with a torch and some spray lube and lots of patience and I finally rocked the screw lose.

Ignition electrode broke

Removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Disconnected the wire to the electrode. The screw holding the electrode to the burner plate would not unscrew so I had to drill out the screw in order to replace it with the new ignition electrode. A little more time involved but if the screw would have come out it would have been a 10 minute job.When I ordered the part from you it came very quickly and I will certainly use you again when I have any other issues.

The spark was no longer igniting the burner

The earlier reviews said very easy and 15 minutes for beginners. They were right on, except I could not get the old screw out no matter what I tried. I eventually had to drill it out and put in a self tapping new screw. This was a first for me. Then it took 15 minutes or less and works fine again. Hopefully next time someone will tell me how to get that old screw out faster.

cracked ignitors (2)

No problem removing the burners. Removing the old initors was a different story. The tiny screws that hold the ignitor in place were baked in and could not be removed with a screw driver. I drilled them and tried to use an easy out to no avail. The screws are very short so I had to use care not to drill thru the burner. Both screw heads did snap off. I resorted to a hi temp epoxy to secure the ignitor flanges to the burner and now the all burners ignite as designed.

It was really easy because I read information on your site. I only had to unscrew 3 screws, remove the old spark ignition electrode, replace the new one and then screw the 3 screws back. It was great

The right front burner quit lighting, the igniter was weak.

Took off the burner by unscrewing the two screws and lifting out the burner/igniter together being careful to not let the electrical connection come apart. If it does then you have to take all 4 burners off so you can lift the whole oven/burner top. Disconnect the old igniter by (more than likely) drilling out the old screw, if you are lucky maybe the old screw holding the igiter will actually unscrew. If not, you can put a new screw in to hold the new igniter, put it all back together and youre done.

left right burner would not ignite

I am sure I saved a bunch of money for an outside repair. It was so simple I was embarassed that I did not attempt the repair sooner. Removed two screws from old burner head lifted it up unplugged the electrode wire replaced with new burner head put the two screws back in place and I was finished.
