First I went online and checked out the video to see if I could do it. It was really easier than the video showed because my oven was a little different than the one shown. I did it like the video showed me. I love your website and videos will be a return customer.

Just followed your video! All the steps were identical and it took me 15 to 20 minutes. Thank you, you saved me from contacting a repair man or having to purchase a new stove. My wife wasn't too happy she's been wanting a new range. The part was exact made to order no having to re-wire igniter using the old igniter plug. Hopefully not soon but I will be using you again in the future for any future parts. Thank you Part Select.

Made an educated guess that the problem was a bad oven igniter. Although the malfunctioning igniter still glowed red hot, it was not hot enough to open gas flow to the burner. USEFUL TIP: the new igniter's plug was not a smooth fit with the oven's plug - I somewhat forced them together and sure enough - no ignition. So, I cut the plug off the old igniter, spliced it on the new one (fortunately, ceramic wire nuts were included by PartSelect), and everything connected up and worked beautifully. After that it was just a matter of screwing the oven floor panels back in, and a few hundred $$ were saved for under an hour's work.

My Husband removed everything that needed the use of tools. I did the plug-in because of gentle touch needed on old parts. It went halfway on then Husband put muscle on it. We put all parrts back in place. I turned oven on and it came on quickly. Happy Wife! Happy Home!

At first I was ohms testing the wrong igniter ! I'm old school...so I assumed the drawer under the over was a broiler ( like my Moms was ) WRONG ! I was testing the parts on the roof of the oven instead of the ones under the pan on the bottom ! anyway, the lower igniter ohmed over 1 mega ohms. the spec I found was 60 to 1K ohms. Replaced the lower igniter and the oven works fine ! Thanks Part Select...great prices ! fast delivery ! That's why I bought the drip pans as well ! I will be a repeat customer ! ( FYI I'm a 44 year Auto Tech )

I removed two bolts at the rear of the oven bottom. I pulled the old oven bottom out, and put the new oven bottom in. I put the two bolts back in and voila it looks like a new oven. Done in less than 15 minutes.
