This repair is very easy. If you ever have to remove the range for any reason, for deep cleaning or otherwise, "PLEASE REMEMBER TO REMOVE THE 4 SCREWS located on the bottom of each burner! Don't do what I did! I tried to pop the range without removing the screws, & broke ALL ORIFICE TUBES! When doing this repair, shut the main gas off in the back of the oven. All you need to do is remove the 4 screws as I indicated earlier, using a Phillips screw driver, once this is done, twist off all 4 burners ("YES THEY TWIST OFF!")These twist off about 1/2 turn counter-clockwise, this will expose the electronic ignition wires connected to the ignitor electrodes, these wires are color coordinated, so remember to either write down how these wires came off, or if you are like me, just remember where they came off from, remove these "VERY CAREFULLY" as these are very delicate to remove, especially, if the ignitor electrodes are brittle or old, if they are in too bad a shape, REPLACE THEM! Once you have removed all wires connecting to the ignitor electrodes, set down the 4 burners, & the range is ready to be removed, using a flat, regular, screw driver or a small tire iron, insert the flat end into the bottom of the range, just above, where the top of the oven door is & the bottom of the range meets, the top of the oven door, the gap in-between is the spot, you want to pry, The range is held down with retainer clips, then, lift the range about half way up & remove the range. Taking a look inside, you will see the Orifice tubes & how they connect to the burner valves. Remove the two lines going to the burner valves with the use of a 1/2 wrench, or if you don't have one, a crescent wrench will do, once this is done, there is a wire restraint @ the top of the orifice assembly, please do not cut it, but turn the assembly upside down, & with your index finger & thumb, squeeze the restraint & it should pop off, then remove & replace the orifice tubes, when you are tightening the lines, only use hand-tight torque, do not over-tighten, as this will break the orifice tubes! The rest is putting the range on the oven, put the range back on the oven, reversing the procedure on taking it apart. When you put the range back on the retainer clips, you need to push down on the edge of where the clips latch in. This took me about 10-15 minutes to do. Good Luck!

Replaced spark module but same problem persisted. Realized that the insulation on the spark ignitors were all cracked, causing a short.

Lesson learned: check the condition of the spark ignitors first as these have a tendency to crack. Even the smallest crack will cause a short.

Ordered new spark ignitors and plan to complete repair.

After reading some of the repair stories, I was hesitant about doing this task. It was really very simple, I just removed the screws from the back of the stove, and removed the old element. I then replaced it with the new one and replaced the back cover. This whole task from start to finish took 10 minutes. The oven heats perfectly now just like a new oven.

Remove the oven racks. Slide the two catches, located at each rear corner of the oven bottom, toward the front of the oven.

Lift the rear edge of the oven bottom slightly, then slide it back until the front edge of the oven bottom clears the oven front frame. Remove oven bottom from oven.

Pulled storage drawer out to the first stop position. Lift up front of drawer and pull to the second stop position.
Grasp sides and lift up and out.

Under storage area, I removed two screws to remove a steel plate. In the oven, I removed two screws that held on the Oven Igniter. Unplugged the Igniter under the storage area.

Plugged in the new Oven Igniter, replace the two screws that held the Oven Igniter, replace the two screws for the steel plate. Put the storage drawer back, the bottom of the oven back and the racks.

It was easier than I though it would be.

Had to unplug unit, remove back of unit (6 screws), then unscrew oven sensor (2 screws), then unplugged old sensor, replaced it and put back of oven on...Moving the oven out and working in the tight space avaialble was the most difficult. Other than that, super easy job that probably saved me a lot of $$$...

The burners turn and lift. I replaced two. One turned very easily, the other was stuck so I used liquid wrench and plumbers pliers. I did get it off. Once off, the old wires slipped right off and onto the new burners. Those twisted on very easily. Good as new easy breezy.

I located the igniter element, and remove the two screws that hold it in place. I then went around to the back of the oven and located the wire, and disconnected it. Then I pulled it out through the oven and removed it. I then replaced it with the new element; pushed the wires through to back of the stove and plugged it in. With that done, I screwed the new igniter element into place. I then put my oven back together; pushed it back into place and turned the gas back on. And presto! my oven lights like new again. I saved myself the costly repairman visit, and the job was easy.

Oven wouldn't heat

First I removed the burner to which the igniter was attached to. Then I attempted to removed the two screws holding the igniter in place. However, these screws proved to be difficult. I called a local appliance repair shop and the person I spoke to explained how the screws were designed to go one way. Any attempt to remove these screws would result in the threading to be stripped and virtually impossible to remove. (I have never heard of these type of screws before) Anyway, he recommended a hack-saw. Well, the hack-saw worked. After that, the replacing of the part was very easy. Igniter works perfectly and now my wife is ready to conquer the bake sales.
This was my first time using partselect.com.
Yes, I will recommend them to other homeowners.
Thanks. A.T

set oven to self clean and the inner glass broke

I removed the door from the oven and set it on towel on the table, and started the repair of the door. I removed the screws one at a time, and one layer at a time. Becareful you need to take the whole door apart, and remember how it goes bact together. In the end it was worth it. The hardest part was getting the right part. I thought I could order the whole door, and found out after several calls they don't sell the whole door. Part Select both times I put in my order had the parts at my door within 2 to 3 days. I also had to return one of the parts and within 2 to 3 days the part was credited to my account
