electrical connection

Igniter unit connection would not connect to range connector properly. Had to cut and strip wires on new unit...cut off older connector and strip wires and use included ceramic wire nuts to make connection. This worked; however, it is not an advisable connection to make in the environment of a gas range. The connectors had the appearance of proper match up, but pins inside the connectors do not match. I would have liked to return unit for proper connection, but shipment took so long. Also, proper unit may not be available.

Oven didn't heat up.

Overall the repair wasn't all that difficult.....other than in my situation the new part comes with a "female" modular plug, and my range has a "female" reciever plug. These of course won't connect. I had to cut both mod plugs off, strip both ends of each wire, and wire wrap using the porcelain wire wrap caps that came with my part. This repair would have been MUCH MORE difficult had the porcelain wire wraps not been included. The "fine print" does tell you that you may have to do this "STEP" but I didn't read that the first time I tried to do the repair. Fortunately after re-reading the paperwork I read what had to be done in my situation. This simply lenghtened the time involved and added a couple steps. You need to be comfortable stripping wires in order to complete the repair in this manner. DO NOT USE PLASTIC NUT WIRE WRAPS.....this area, though protected can still heat up. Plastic and higher heat are not a good combination. The plastic wire wrap could melt. USE (if they are included) the porcelean wraps or go buy them if you need to.

The repair was very easy. It did require a very small torx driver (I can't remember the size off hand.) and a 1/4" nut driver.

Researched problem on internet and via PartsSelect. Ordered new electric gas ignitor as old one must have grown weak over time. Removed oven shelving and covers to expose ignitor. Unplgged old ignitor from wire connector and reinstalled new ignitor. Tricky part was holding the short oven wire in place before removing the old ignitor. Used a short piece of common wire to do so. Oven seems to light normally now. Job was relatively easy and simple. PartSelect step by step video has a big help.

called appliance repairman. He found problem and ordered new part. After 2 months waiting for part to get there, my husband got on internet and calld your number, and ordered what was needed. Now for the great thing. Within 4 working days we received what we thought we needed. but we had ordered the wrong part number. Got back on internet, went right to your web site, found the part that we did need, a flame spreader instead of the Deflector. called your service number, talked to a very nice person, again, told her what we did and ordered the correct part. Another great thing, we got that part the very next day. I returned the wrong part that same day. We then had our son install it and now we have a very nice working oven. Though out this very long ordeal, we talked to the applicance service people and got the same answer. The part has been ordered and it should be here next week. When we found your web site and called for the part, I called the appliance service and told them we had ordered the part ourselves and I would be happy to give her this information. THE VERY NEXT DAY she called us to tell us the part had fially arrived and they could come out the next day. Told them sorry but it as already taken care of. The very next time we need some part for any appliance we will call you first. Thank you for your very nice service people and the fast way that this all took place.

Replaced the burner and igniter after watching the repair video provided by Partselect. I was pleasantly surprised when the parts came the very next day. It was so easy and the igniter plug matched perfect. My wife wanted to hire a repair man but I did the repair and saved a bundle on the labor. I couldn't be happier about my purchase.

I followed the Parts Select video and the fix was easy! Without the video I probably would have spent a few hours figuring it out but with the video I was done in 20 minutes and it works beautifully.

(pay attention to how the igniter is fastened) 5. reach in where warming drawer was and unplug igniter, has plastic connector, all the way at back of oven. 6. use 1/4" nut driver to remove 2 screws in igniter bracket, BE CAREFUL TO NOT DROP the screws, if you do use a small magnet to retrieve, if it falls into an area you cant reach. 7. install new igniter.8. put all the pieces back in, Thought I was going to need a whole new stove, the thing works great now.

Very easy, removed two (2) hex headed sheet metal screws from oven bottom pan, slipped out, unplugged igniter & removed two (2) sheet metal screws. Removed broken (element) igniter. Reversed steps installing new element. Be careful do not touch element. The "new" style replacement element will have metal guard around the element for added protection& support.

Ignitor glowed but the gas valve would not allow gas to flow to the burner

  • Customer: John from Round Lake Heights IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Since the igniter was old, it was weak and was not drawing enough amperage. This resulted in the gas valve not to get energized. I only had to unscrew the igniter from the burner and remove the little plate in the back of the oven wall that covered the hole that the wires went through. Then I was able to pull the connector out of the hole to disconnect it. Then it was just a matter of reversing the process to attatch the new igniter.

replace the oven igniter. Remove screws, couple of panels, some of the screws were stripped. hade to retap one and go oversize. plug in new igniter and re fasten. Oven worked fine .... for a week and quit. Took cover off in back of oven notice sparking in the electrical plug. When I put the plug together the first time one of the pins came out and I didnt notice It. So It made contact for a while.. Stuck a awl in the socket to make the female pin larger and put them back together. Its been working fine since.
