Unplugged the power cord from the oven. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to remove the broiler drawer so I didn't have a lot of room to work. Basically I had to unscrew one Phillips screw to remove the metal housing that shields the wiring and connectors from direct flame of the oven. Once I removed the housing it was a matter of removing 2 wire caps where the wires from the igniter spliced into the power source. Once the wires were disconnected, I unscrewed the 2 Phillips screws that attached the igniter to the mounting bracket and removed the old igniter. I had to cut the wires on the new igniter to the correct length and stripped the insulation so about 1/4" of bare wire was exposed to splice to the wire from the power source. I then attached the igniter to the mounting bracket (2 screws), twisted the wires together to connect to the power and attached the wire connector caps. I reinstalled the protective housing (1 screw) making sure the wires were clear and not being pinched. Plugged the power cord back in, turned the oven on and everything worked fine.

Disconnect the power cord.
Lift the Oven door UP to remove it from the Hinges. Then unscrew the Nut/screw and remove the floor of the oven. Remove the broiler drawer. Remove the screws from the cover plate along the back wall of the oven where the wires go. Observe where the old wires go/went.
Cut the wire from the old igniter 3 : from the igniter .
Remove the old igniter from bracket with screwdriver.

Thread the new wire where the old wire went. Now Mount the new igniter to the bracket. Strip the old wire about 1" . Use Ceramic 'twist connectors' supplied. Plug in the stove and test the new igniter. When happy with the instillation, unplug the electric and allow the new igniter to cool. Finally, re-attach the cover plate on the back wall of oven, replace the broiler drawer and oven door. Congradulate yourself and have a beer.

First checked with my flash light to see what was not happening. Compared the part with your oven parts, figured it out from there! Removed the wire, then the igniter from the bracket and that was it,just replaced the part. The ceramic tips for the wires came in handy.Now I can cook my turkey.Not bad for a girl!

Removed the door. Then, removed the oven floor panel, removed the 2 screws holding the igniter. Cut the wire leads from the old igniter, stripped and connected the new wire leads to the old using ceramic wire nuts (included with part). Connected igniter to mounting bracket using original screws. Re-plugged in range and checked the new igniter for lighting. OK on first try, so replace oven floor and tighten holding screws. Then replace door. Tried out oven on a Red Baron Pepperoni pizza. Excellente!

First I turned the power off going to the oven, safety first. Then I removed the broiler drawer from the oven so I could remove the bottom plate, that gave me easy access to the wires and igniter. I took removed the two screws holding the igniter in place, then removed the wire nuts from the wires. I then reversed the procedure. This took care of my problem, the oven lights easily now.

The oven wouldn't light. It glowed but wouldn't light. I came on your site to order a different part but after reading posts by others with my same problem figured I would try this first. It worked!!

My husband did the repair so I really don't know, he unscrewed the old one and screwed the new one on. Probably a little more detail but it seemed that quick to me!

Of all times, my oven quit working the Friday before Thanksgiving. Since this has happened in the past, we knew it was the igniter. After placing our order with Part Select on-line, it was promptly shipped the same day and received on Monday!! Since my husband has replaced this before, he knew to unhook the electric wires from the igniter and remove the old one. Once we received the new part on Monday, it only took a few minutes to hook the igniter back up to the electric wires, push the wires to the back of the oven out of the way of the flame, and I was back in business ready to start cooking for the holidays!! Barbara and Derrick at Part Select on-line were so very helpful since I was not able to locate the part here locally, and they really came to the rescue for me!! Thanks so much!!

The oven igniter was not operational.

Fairly easy to accomplish. First unplugged the oven from the power outlet, then removed the oven racks and the bottom pan which required a screw driver to remove the two screws in the front of the pan. Then, using a socket wrench, removed the nut which holds the thin metal deflector/reflector on top of the gas burner tube. Moved the broiler drawer forward to provide room to work. Using a Phillips screw driver, removed the two screws holding the igniter in place and removed the igniter after pulling the wire connectors from the power and gas hookups. Cut the old wires about three (3) inches from the connectors (the ones farthest from the igniter). Stripped the wires and connected them to the new igniter using the ceramic wire nuts provided. Screwed the igniter back into the retaining bracket and connected the spliced wires into their oven connectors. Plugged the oven into the power supply and turn the oven control to 300 degrees, waited 10 - 15 seconds and watched the igniter glow. Shortly thereafter the gas kicked on and the oven tube ignited. Turned off the oven, reinstalled the deflector/reflector, and reinstalled the oven bottom. Put the oven racks in and plugged the oven back in.
