This part fixes the following symptoms:
I pulled the range from the wall and disconnected the power cord. I removed the grates, burner caps and the burners from the cooktop. Using a plastic putty knife, on either side of the range in the front I pushed the retaining clips to allow the cooktop to be raised. I used a short board to keep the cooktop open. I cut the wire leading to the broken igniter and removed the old igniter. I put the new ignitor in the mounting hole. The igniter wire connects to the spark module which is in the back of the range. To access the module I removed three top screws on the backplate(you have to get behind the range) and removed the top access panel. I used the old wire to pull the new wire through to the module. I disconnected the old wire from the module and connected the new one.Reassembly was easy. I replaced the backplate and screws, lowered the cooktop, replaced the burners, caps and grates. I plugged the power cord back in and slid the range back.

Broken ignitor wire had been previously removed to determine part number. Exact length was not availible (37"), but similiar unit (36") (one inch shorter) worked with zero problems. To re-install replacement wire/ignitor, I removed all four grates, and surface burners (allows top surface to pivot upwards.) Raised front of stove top surface by pushing in side, hold-down clips, using butter knife. Propped up surface with board. Insert clip end of igniter lead through hole in top surface and led wire back and towards passage to rear plug-in terminal location. Removed upper, rear sheet metal cover plate (must pull entire range away from wall.) Fed thin/ some-what-stiff safety wire down through plastic protection sleeve (all four ignitor wires go through the sleeve.) Wrapped wire around clip on end of igniter lead, pulled igniter wire up through plastic protector sleeve, disconnected pull through wire, and pushed connector clip on ignitor wire into ignitor terminal block. The rest was nothing more than screwing things back together in reverse order.
