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.

Oven no longer came on

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. All went very well, and oven now works like a charm

Removed the oven doors for access; removed the burner onto which the ignitor is attached, disconnected the electrical wires (power off). Reversed the procedure to put it back together. We are now cooking with gas again. Thanks. Fletcher

First, my wife and I pulled out the oven from wall to disconnect electric plug and, also with a wrench; I shut off the gas connection on the wall. I then removed front door of the oven by pulling up on door to have easy access to lower part of oven, and then removed pan to get to Igniter. Removed the three screws on cage that supported the Igniter and, I also had to remove several screws to the manifold and bottom pan that supports the manifold so that I could disconnect Igniter. I then was able to pull out old Igniter and, reconnect the new one. After that, I reinstalled everything in reverse. Before pushing oven back into wall; we made sure the new igniter worked. It worked just great. My wife and I were so happy and proud that we done it our self, and not have to call someone to do it for us. It took me and, my wife about an hour and a half to complete the job. I believe the reason it took us as long as it did was because we really didn't know what to expect. Now that we know; I am sure that we could do it again in 30 to 45 minutes. Dave & Marsha; 8/23/2013
