I first removed the screws inside the oven,let the tube that the flames come out of hang down,removed the screws from the igniter. then I took the cover off the back of the stove and unplugged the old igniter and plugged in the new one. I put all screws back and put every thing back in place and the oven has been heating up every since. Thank you parts select. My husband is a OTR Trucker and won't be home until the 20th of this month.One less item on his "Honey do list".

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.

it was actually pretty easy, it took about 20 minutes to fix, i had to unscrew the bottom portion of the oven to get to the Igniter on the bottom, then unscrew the Igniter, take off the old pice, and snap the new one in, put it all back together, and that was about it, i had dinner done by the time my husband got home from work. thanks

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).

Replace the igniter. Removed 2 rear screws that secure bottom oven pan. Removed pan. Ignigter is located in center rear by 2 screws. Removed the screws and pulled ignigter out from rear. There us a prong connection that when pressed will release igniter. Don't touch new ignigter without gloves on. Will reduce life. Plugged in new ignigter and secured w 2 screws. Turned on oven to ensure problem was fixed. After 30 seconds, oven ignited. Replaced bottom oven pan. Tadaa!

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!

Replaced the Handle on the Range Door

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

After the repair I determined that the door did not need to be removed from the stove. The top 3 screws needed to be taken out, the front clase needed to be slid out by pushing it right to left or left to right. Then the bracket that held the inside screw assembly needed to be removed. The new handle needed to be installed and the bracets put back into place. The front glass needed to be reinstalled right to left or left to right. The hardest part of my install was putting door back on the range, the hinges kept popping out of place before setting into the range. The best way to replace the hangle would be to not remove the door from the range.

I searched on-line to find that PartSelect had the easiest site to navigate and find the correct replacement knob for our 6 year old appliance. I placed the order and 36 hours later the part was in my mailbox. It fit the range perfectly and matched the other knobs exactly! Although the shipping cost was high for such a small and lightweight part, I was glad to have found the piece I was looking for. Thank you for this service!

oven would not lite

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.

Right side of lower oven door broke off

I pulled the oven door off and set it on the counter. I unscrewed all the visible screws and carefully removed the glass. Found some more screws that needed removal. Removed the old handle, attached the new. Then re-assembled everything. I kept parts aside in the order I took them off, so I knew what order to re-assemble. My only problem was the weight of the door as I am a 74 year old female and, to me, the door was very heavy. Otherwise it was not a difficult task.

Oven section was not heating up.

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.
