I was in charge of cooking for Thanksgiving, tried using oven the Friday before Thanksgiving and oven heated up but than shut down. I googled the problem and solution was on Partselect.

Much like the provided video, I followed all of the instructions. The only difference is that I needed to use the Ceramic wire nuts to join the new igniter wires to the old ones. There is no removable port to access the igniter plug behind the oven wall as is show in the video. You must strip the wires on the old igniter and the new one and then join them inside the oven with the provided ceramic wire nuts.

Wall oven: light flickered or did not work in a loose poreclain socket.

Shut off power at the panel to the electric oven. Removed 2 phillips screws holding bulb unit in place in the top of teh oven chamber. One wire was so frayed it came out of the push on connector. Stripped off insulation and reinstalled onto the connector, using pliers to snug the wires down. Installed the new porcelain socket from Parts Select, replaced the unit in the top of the oven unit. Installed a new bulb, then snapped the new glass housing into place with the existing retaining wire clip. Presto: works like it's brand new. Thanks to Parts Select for the right parts, and for such quick delivery. I will use them again!

Replace the Oven Igniter Component

The job was made very simple primarily due to the repair video that was available on your site when I ordered the part that I was looking for. The job can be done in less than 15 min, but it took me a little bit longer because of some rusted screws that didn’t want to come out so easily. I also decided to take of the front door (not mentioned in the video) just to make it a bit easier to reach the igniter component. The door comes off very easy by opening the door about 6 inches and pulling up and off of the door hinges. Again for a novice like me the video was a life saver.

I did an internet search on the make and model of my gas oven, and found a possible cause of the gas oven not heating. I found an Flat Style Oven Igniter maybe the reason. I did another search on you tube and found how to check the if Oven Igniter still worked. My testing confirmed the Oven Igniter failed the testing so I ordered the part. I also did a you tube search on the removal and installtion of the Flat Style Oven Igniter. I did another internet search and found an online company called PartSelect. I ordered Flat Style Oven Igniter Kit and repaired my oven.

1. Unplug oven. 2. Open oven and remove racks. 3. Remove two screws for bottom panel. 4. Lift panel towards you and remove. 5. Remove two screws on oven igniter and remove (it may stick a little to burner). 6. Install new igniter. 7. unplug old igniter from behind oven and plug in new one. 8. Replace bottom panel and racks, plug in oven and your done. Simple and will save you money. Parts Select had best price and standard shipping was quicker then I excepted. Highly recommend trying this if you have the same issue at worst your out $40.

electrical connection

Igniter unit connection would not connect to range connector properly. Had to cut and strip wires on new unit...cut off older connector and strip wires and use included ceramic wire nuts to make connection. This worked; however, it is not an advisable connection to make in the environment of a gas range. The connectors had the appearance of proper match up, but pins inside the connectors do not match. I would have liked to return unit for proper connection, but shipment took so long. Also, proper unit may not be available.
