I found the ignitor was wired in series with the gas valve and wasn't letting enough voltage through to the gas valve to open it. I just unscrewed the ignitor and pulled it out.

The oven was not heating properly

After removing the oven shelves, the burner cover came right up. The ignitor was in plain sight, and after removing the screws I pulled it straight out so I could get to the wire nuts. After swapping out the old igniter and sliding the cover over the new ignitor, the new piece slipped back into place in the oven. The screws were put back in, and the burner cover and shelves put back, and the oven works wonderfully again.

repair wasn't the issue, finding the part was. I went to home depot - no matching bulb and for some reason I never found out, weren't able to order one, same thing at lowe's - then I went to a electric supply house - and they ordered one but it wasn't the right part. Found your web site and easliy found the bulb and ordered it, GREAT! took the standard 3 - 5 day thinking that it had been 2 months waiting on finding the bulb, surley I can wait 3 - 5 days... this was on a thursday afternoon - Fed Ex delivered the bulb the early on saturday morning! the charge had barley showed up on my card and the part was here! and was less expensive than the price at the electric supply house! Count on my business again, I saved you site in my favorites

hinge on oven door broke off

After I received the new hinge in the mail, my 13 year old son volunteered, for a fee of five dollars, to put the new hinge on the oven door. Seeing "easy to install" on the outer wrapper of the new part, I thought I was being generous. However, my son soon let me know that the screws given with the new hinge did not fit into the predrilled holes of the oven. He tried and tried for over an hour to get those screws to fit. I decided to go to the home improvement store to buy bigger screws. I took the hinge with me and had the store employee assess the type of screws I would need. He then informed me that the screws were fine, but I needed the holes in the hinge to be drilled bigger. I bribed him by offering to buy him a drink if he'd do it for me as long as he was single. He laughed and drilled away. (Sometimes, single women, like me, get desperate!) He handed me the hinge with larger holes and I noticed the wedding ring. Oops...no drink for him!! But I did give him a great big thank you. Happily, I brought the fixed piece home and handed it to my son to continue with the repair. He tried again and this time announced the holes were drilled too big!! If there was a bridge nearby I seriously would have jumped! The next day I drove to my Dad's house...a true jack of all trades...and with his drill and two new screws, he said this should do it. For the third time, I handed the hinge to my son and VOILA!! It actually worked! Thanks Dad!! So much for "easy to install". Seriously, the incorrect screws were sent with this hinge! Anyway, I happily celebrated that night with a drink in my hand...minus the home improvement employee!

First I turned off the gas supply to the oven and disconnected it. I then pull the oven out away from the wall. I then unplugged the power cord. I removed the oven door by lifting it off of it spring hinges. I then removed a lower plate that covers the burner element by pressing in a manner that it popped off. I then located the ignitor and removed 3 screws. All were easily removed. Carefully, I pulled the igniter out and removed the wires from the wires that supplied the current to the ignitor. Installation followed by working the steps above in reverse order.

Took the pan out of the bottom of the oven. Took the screws out of the assembly for the iron, disconnect the power wires under the stove and pull out the old iron. Reverse the proceedure but be careful with the new iron, it is very fragile. Connect the wires put the screws back and you are done. Make sure before you start the job that you unplug the appliance !!!!

The first igniter was received broken. A replacement was received within 5 days. It was very easy to install once the protective cover was placed over the igniter end. In my opinion, this part should be sold with the protective cover already in place.

Old burner bowls were pitted, rusted, and unattractive.

Replaced the igniter. Took out the 20 screws holding the bottom plate of the oven. Removed the igniter and gas tube mounting screws and bracket. Took off the wire nuts that attached igniter to stove wiring. Carefully installed new ignitor, using reverse of the steps above. Igniter tip is very fragile, so beware as you handle.
