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.

Oven heated very slowly

Removed the drawer from under the stove then unscrewed the access panel in the back (two phillips head screws). Rather than take it off altogether I just swung it to one side.

The ignitor electrical connector required two hands to disconnect and it was a bit of a reach but came apart easily enough once I got hold of it.

Removed the racks and bottom from the oven. the bottom is held in by two pins in the back that you just slide toward the front then lift it out. I did not bother to remove the oven door, but some people might.

Then removed the two hex head screws holding the ignitor on and pulled the connector out of the hole leading to the bottom.

Installation is the reverse of removal The electrical connector was reluctant to back down the hole, but went with a little wiggling and pulling from underneath. Once you get it back down there the connector is keyed, so you can't get it wrong.

Piece of cake, really.

Total repair time: about 30 minutes, including the mandatory halfway beer break.

Removed oven door by opening slightly and lifting straight up. Pulled out racks and removed bottom of oven. Unscrewed wingnut and removed burner shield. Removed 2 screws that hold igniter and unplugged the connection. Reverse the procedure to put it all back together.
Be patient, it takes a few moments for it to begin heating when you first turn it on.
So easy a woman can do it ! I know,(I am one).

My wife dropped a cast iron dish on the door while it was open, bent the hinges, so it would not close properly.

It was really easy, just lift the door off from the range, I set it down on the box that the hinges came in, took the six screws out to release the front fascia of the door from the back, hinges are right there, un-screw and install the new hinges, put everything back together in reverse and lift the door back on to the range, less than 10 minutes!

Removed old assembly, attached wires to new and inserted into space for same. Of course you must turn off the range circuit breaker. The part that took the most time was removing the old assembly. Once that was done, the rest took only a few minutes.

I turned off the gas at the back of the oven & unpluged it. I then removed the 2 screws that secure the oven bottom plate to the oven. Once removed, that exposes the oven burner & igniter. There are 2 sscrews that secure the igniter to the burner; remove those screws, & pull the igniter wires out, to expose the connector. Unplug the connector, & the igniter is free. Just reverse the process with the new igniter.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires.
Plug in the element put the wires back in the hole and screws the element on and that was it. Worked great.

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.

I removed the screws and unplugged the connectors and i inserted the new igniter which was glowwing much brighter than the old one which gave me an indication that it has the amount of temperature to open the gas valve.Idid a good job.

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!

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! :)
