1. First, I read other people's instructions on this site, and that helped quite a bit. My own model was attached somewhat differently, so I was unable to replace the igniter in the same fashion as others. 2. Turned off the power to the oven after having done the non-electrical work: removed cover plate from bottom of inside oven (two screws in the back) to expose the igniter, and the heat shield from underneath the oven once the oven drawer was removed. Old, old screws so that was a bit of rolling around on the floor. 3. After that it was fairly easy: turned off the breaker, snipped one igniter wire from a plastic harness assembly under the oven and the other from the electrical core underneath the oven which was attached with a clamp. 4. Removed two screws to release the igniter. Now I could work on it in the light. Stripped the old wire underneath the oven, attached the old clamp to the other new wire, and then clamped one wire on and joined the other to the plastic harness wire with the screw cap. It was a bit of effort merely to get at things, but not difficult. Breaker back on, and the oven now works perfectly.

Igniter was past-due for a change-out!

Just opened up the oven and went to work. Really easy repair. Removed floor of oven with two thumb screws. Removed flame diverter plate from burner with one screw. Removed igniter with two screws. Marked top wire, then untwisted old wire nuts to remove the old igniter. Replaced with new igniter and used enclosed new wire nuts. Reassembly was simply the reverse of above. Only issue - I needed longer arms to comfortably reach back into the oven!

1. Remove the old Trim by opening the door and unscrewing the two top screws holding the trim and glass to the door. 2. Lift the trim piece off of the glass, being careful as the glass will be a bit loose, and unscrew the handle from the trim piece, discard those two screws. 3. Place the new trim piece on the glass so that it fits snugly. 4. Place the screws back through the holes on the inside of the door, through the new trim piece and attach them to the handle. 5. Tighten down snugly and close door. You are done!

Foul ordor coming from stove

  • Customer: Joe De from Montgomery AL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The foul order was the cause of a "Mummified Rat" that I found on the bottom Left /outside wall of the oven. I first Unplugged the stove and turned off the gas. I removed the grates and the burners. Each burner is held down with two (2) 3/16" screws which makes it a total of eight (8) screws in all. After removing all eight screws, you can now pop up the burner lid with a putty knife or a large Screw Driver. I used a large screw driver, After removing the "Lid" you will then see the "Insulation Blanket" draped over the oven, to remove this blanket there are two (2) copper wires securing the blanket in place, you'll have to cut these in order to install your New Blanket. Removing the "Blanket " is a "No Brainer" just be cautious and don't snag any of the "Igniter Wires" The "Insulation Blanket" goes on one way, this can be identified by the pre-cuts on the blanket. I started out on the left side of the stove, and had the right side of the "Blanket rolled up. As I tucked the "Blanket" under the "igniter Wires" and slowly and gently feeding it with my left hand till it lines up with the pre-cut and drapes itself into place as you maneuver it down with your hands Now start with the right side by unrolling the "Blanket" and following the same procedure making sure the "Insulation Blanket" is fully extended on both sides of the oven.

The oven igniter had become weak and would not ignite the burner.

Removed the oven racks. Unscrewed the two screws that held the oven bottom in. Removed the burner shield (one nut to remove). Removed the two screws holding the igniter in place. Removed the wires from behind and attached to the igniter. Removed the cover from corner that shields the wire and plug. Removed the plug. Removed entire igniter assembly. Cut and stripped the wires and wired back to the ends by using the wire nuts provided with the new igniter. Then just reversed the steps to reinstall the igniter! Yaay! It works fine. And I am a 66 year old woman with no help! I was very happy with the service and instructions provided by PartsSelect! Thanks!

Oven was slow to light and heat up

  • Customer: Mike from Roswell GA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Replaced the oven igniter by removing the bottom oven tray (2 screws at back). Removed the 2 bolts that hold the igniter in place and cut the cables to it. Cut a little cable off the new igniter (cable supplied on the new igniter is long). Attached the new igniter with the 2 bolts and connected the cables together using the ceramic cable connectors supplied. Only thing to take care with is that you do not cut the cables too short and make sure to leave enough of a loop to join the cables together.
