Oven took to long to preheat

I expected to see a thermocouple and a heating element next to the gas valve but after reviewing other PartSelect stories from people with a similar problem I realized that the heating element also serves as the switch. Apparently as the heating element is energized by the oven control it draws more amps. The gas valve is allowed to open at a specific level corresponding to a sufficiently glowing heating element. I ordered a new heating element. The part received was made up of two pieces. The heating element and the metal mounting bracket. The element was identical but assumingly due to the age of my stove the bracket was slightly different. Fortunatly I was able to slide the new element into the old bracket. The only other obsticle was that the new element came with a two conductor connector and the old was installed with ceramic wire nuts. The connector was cut off and the ceramic wire nuts were reused. Its working fine.

I removed the floor of the oven (one screw) and the heat dispersal shield (one wing nut). Then I detached the old igniter using a socket set. I had to remove the bottom drawer to unplug the ignitor and plug in the new one. Then I reassembled. Total piece of cake and I have no experience whatsoever.

Nothing to it - remove oven bottom, and burner cover, unscrew the 2 scews holding the igniter
(one of mine sheared off now only one is holding the new igniter in - it still works) unplug wire at the connector then reverse and the oven is as good as new. The best part is that I received my part in only 2 days.

Remove oven door, pan drawer, oven racks, bottom pan, flame spreader. Remove valve cover at back of pan drawer. Unplug old igniter. Remove two mounting screws holding igniter to gas tube assembly. Install new igniter, plug it in, and reassemble. Easy as pie! Oven works better than it has for a looooong time! Heats up to 400 in 5 minutes. Wife is happy! :)

First I removed the bottom plate in the oven. The ignitor was located at the rear of the burner and I removed to screws and it was loose except for the two wires. Next I removed the bottom tray from the stove. Two screws held the metal guard in place at the rear of the stove. After removing the plate, I determined which wires belonged to the ignitor, unplugged them at the coupling and pulled the wires out through the bottom of the oven. Replacing the ignitor was simply to reverse the proceedure. PartSelect got the part right out to me, installing the new part was a breeze, and my wife calls me her "hero." This site was a real help and saved me a service/repair bill. Thanks!

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.
