After research on my computer I determined it was the igniter. I pulled out the range unplugged the power but not the gas and removed the door, racks and bottom of the oven (2 screws). The part on your site looked and measured exactly like the igniter I had and needed to replace. I ordered it immediately. Spent a little time giving it a good cleaning since it was moved out from the wall. The part arrived the next morning! Still disconnected from the power I unscrewed the old igniter. After removing the warming drawer, I unplugged the igniter from the power source. I removed the old igniter and reversed the directions and placed the new one in. Very easy. I replaced the bottom of the oven, racks and doors. Plugged her in and she fired right up! Bonus...my oven heats up very fast now. Over the years I got used to it taking longer and longer. I am a housewife and this was a "piece of cake".

I used the video to do the part removal and install. The video was perfect for what I needed. The only thing that was an issue was the connectors. I had to use the connector off the old igniter.

I first tried diagnosing it myself and thinking that since the igniter was glowing red and the flame was coming on but very low and minimal and even at times almost going out I purchased the gas valve but it really did not fix the problem. A couple of weeks later I went back on partselect and used Instant Repairman and saw that the igniter fixed this problem most of the time. I ordered it and put it in, which was very easy, and it fixed my problem. The oven woks like new now.

I followed the installation video on you web site and in 15 minutes the oven came back to life. Putting the igniter in was quite literally plug and play! Also this part was 50% cheaper then the local repair shop was asking. And they would not let me return it if it was the wrong part. Thank you for your service. You saved me quite a bit of money.

I had to replace the igniter in my oven. After calling around to the local appliance shops I decided to compare prices on line. I purchased and brand new GE replacement part (not some knock-off) for HALF of what the local shops wanted to charge. Fast delivery, Easy no hassle check out. I am extremely please and will be shopping Parts Select FIRST from now on!

First ordered the wrong part(my fault)which was VERY EASILY replaced and credited promptly by PartSelect. Then I followed the professional instructions and also the You tube provided again by PartSelect,and boy! A blind person could fix it just like that! My wife was so astonished at my "sudden skills". Thanks PartSelect, you made me save $200 for such an easy repair. Wish I knew about you long time ago. You are my only source now for all my appliance repairs. Thanks again!

Very easy to remove grates, burner cover and remove old burner head. Very simple process, but surprised that there was no efficient way to clean carbon deposits from my old burner. Burner video instructions on line insured I installed the new burner head correctly (actually, pretty hard to get wrong), and burner worked correctly immediately. Will likely replace other burners in time as the new one is so "silvery" colored compared to my other burners.

The oven would not heat up. At first it would heat up a little then over a week's time it got to where the flame would not even ignite

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The thing that made my repair a bit difficult was that the new igniter electrical wires would not snap into the wire fitting on the stove. When I called Part Select service number they said that I needed to cut the wire fitting off the new igniter and the stove wires and use the 2 porcelain connectors to connect the wires. Good thing I had wire strippers and knew how to use them.

Oven liner melted....needed to replace bottom

Removed the old oven bottom by removing two nuts. Be careful...don't drop the nuts! Removed the heat shield that was attached with four nuts to the old bottom and transferred it to the new oven bottom. Then placed the new bottom in the oven and secured it with the two original nuts. Easy...but don't forget about transferring the heat shield and don't lose the nuts.
