Husband actually did the repair, It went really well except he forgot to remove the heat shield from the old part to attach to the new bottom. (His mistake!)

Unpluged power. 1. Removed all internals from the broiler. 2. Removed (3) protective heat shields. 3. Pulled glowbar plug through the access hole behind the gas piping. 4. Unplugged the glowbar. 4. Removed two glowbar holding screws and remove the glowbar. 5. Waited two and one half days to recieve the new part. 6. Reversed the process. NOTE: It really was not difficult at all, and the new part was original equipment so except for the delay in identifying, ordering, and receiving the part the whole process was very quick.

It was easy I unplugged the stove but I left the gas alone. I used a flat head screw driver to take the oven sheet off. Then I unscrewed the oven lighter and the bracket holding it. Then I disconnected it and put the new one on. The hard part was letting the wd-40 dissolve for the rusty screws

10 minute job, remove racks, 2 screw to take out the lower oven deck, 2 bolts removed for the igniter, unplug the connector, install the new igniter, re-add the 2 bolts & your done. Re install the lower deck, put the racks back on, plug the oven back in, turned on bake, set to 400, within 45 secs, the igniter kicked in and my oven was back in action. Contacted GE and they wanted $99 for inspection, $75.00 for the part (2x the current cost) + labor for 1 hours $90, overall costs if i had GE or a contractor = 250-300.00, total costs for me 43.00+ plus 15 mins of labor. I truly saved using a few you tube videos and with parts select, i got a OEM part shipped fast! Thank you all.

The oven would not light. The igniter glowed red but the gas never turned on.

My first guess was that the igniter was good because it glowed red. After viewing your repair video and reading your text "hints" which told me that even if the igniter turned red it may still be the problem I decided to get the igniter. Installation was simple. First shut off the gas. I have a gas turn-off near the range. Then I removed the metal panel on my right side and had to remove the cover over the wire hole in the rear panel and squeeze the igniter connector through the that hole in order to free the igniter wires. I then removed the 2 screws holding the igniter onto the burner. I then installed the new igniter by running the wires, plugging the connector together and pushing it back through the wire hole so that the connector was behind the rear panel. Then put the wire cover back on, 1 screw, then attach the igniter to the burner, 2 screws, then remount the metal panel, 1 screw. Time to test: Turned on the gas and set the oven for 300 (just where I wanted to set it for the test).The new igniter glowed much brighter than the old had glowed and soon on came the gas lighting for an expression of success. Thank you all for the help...
