I had changed the broiler igniter several years ago, but it had "burned out". The only thing that slowed me down on this repair was that the igniter was glowing brightly, but the oven would still not ignite. Others have written that it's best to try a new igniter FIRST. That indeed was the solution. One "trick" that I did not find in other posts was how to get to the plug on the end of the igniter - so here's how. First, open the oven, remove all racks and the bottom cover. Remove the nut holding the heat deflector in place and remove the heat deflector. Then remove the three screws holding the igniter in place. Second, pull out the bottom drawer of the ove and remove it. At the very back there is a sheet metal cover held in place by two additional screws; remove them to rermove the sheet metal cover - this will allow access to the plug on the other end of the igniter. Unplug the igniter. Third, feed the plug end of the new igniter from inside of the oven to the underside. Plug it in, reattach the sheet metal cover, reinstall the drawer, screw in the new igniter and put the heat deflector back in place. Note of caution: be careful handling the igniter - it's fragile and easily broken.
First, I removed the oven door (two screws and pulled it off the hinges) and placed it out of the way. Then I removed the baking racks and bottom cover over the heating element this exposed the heating element, easily removed (two screws). I unplugged the old element, plugged the new element in, and put all the stuff back and the put the door back on. Next was the fun part. . . Had to get the wife to turn on the oven (very complicated touch pad - not made for a man to understand), and shazamm the oven came on! Now I can have some of those great homemade biscuits again!
I removed the ignitor.Ordered the matching part.4 days later the part arrived and I installed the part.
Replaced glow bar/ igniter.
1. Removed racks2. Removed bottom cover3. Removed screws holding ignitor4. Removed storage draw5. Removed cover over wires6. Unplugged ignitor & placed with new7. Put back together
I pulled the racks out of the oven. Then pull the plate off that covers the burner. There is another shield with a nut on it that covers the burner. Removed it.The ignitor is mounted on the back of the burner, held by 3 screws, remove them. Pull the bottom sliding drawer out completely. (you have to lay down for this). There is a metal plate in the very back held with 2 screws, remove them and pull the plate out. You'll see the 2 high temp wires (White) with a plug connector, simply unplug the connector and you are ready to pull the whole ignitor assembly off the burner. The ignitor ceramic base simply slides out of the sleeve. Put the new ignitor in the sleeve and put everything back together. It's pretty simple. This is the second ignitor I have installed in 2 years, hopefully I'll get more life out of this one.Good Luck.
Removed oven racks and bottom cover plate. Removed stainless steel diffuser to access igniter. Removed bottom storage drawer and unplugged connector for igniter. Removed defective igniter by by taking out 3 screws holding stainless steel mounting bracket in place. New replacement part had totally different bracket which prevented it from mounting in the proper orientation so I carefully removed defective igniter from original bracket and installed new igniter. New part was tacked in place by some sort of high temp adhesive that had to be carefully removed to allow it to be installed in old mounting bracket. Installed new assembly in the oven and when I tried plugging in the power connector I discovered the pins on the new igniter were the wrong sex; both sides had male pins! Removed igniter again and cut off the two pin connector and installed a brand new 2 pin molex type connector. I installed a mating connector on the original length of wire and connector that I cut from the defective igniter along with the heavy insulating material so I now had a properly mating set of connectors. Went through the mounting process again; successful mating this time. Oven lights in 50 seconds. If it dies again I'll have a connector of eachsex ready before repair.
The repair was fairly straightforward. The drawer below the oven had to be pulled out and the panel in the rear (looking from the front through the opening where the drawer was) was removed. It was then a matter of removing two screws and unsnapping the wire connection. And then replacing the igniter.
1. Remove sliding shelves and lower pan sheild2. Remove flame deflector3 . Remove the 3 screws that hold the igniter in place. Insert the new cable and plug through the opening for connection in step 6. You may hve access to connector. If so skip to step 8.4. Remove sliding storage drawer5. Remove the sheetmetal pan to gain access to the igniter connector. It might help to have several blocks of wood the elevate the frront of the stove to allow more working clearance.6. Disconnect old igniter, connect new igniter.7. Replace pan and sliding drawer.8. Remove old igniter from carrier and install new one.9. Install igniter carrier to stove with 3 screws10. Replace flame deflector and lower pan sheild.
Thanks to this website I was able to quickly identify the needed part. A few days later I had it. To install the new part I had to open up the bottom inside of the oven to access the igniter assembly and remove the drawer to get to the connecting plug underneath. Four screws needed to be removed, unplugged the old part and plugged in the new part. Replaced the four screws to hold the igniter in place. Replaced the drawer and fired it up. Worked great!
Removed the three screws holding the igniter, pulled the old one out and plugged in the new one. Very simple.
Removed oven grills and top of burner pan. This exposed the igniter. Removed 3 phillips head screws from igniter bracket. Slid old igniter out the back end. Removed utility drawer. Removed two screws from back pan covering igniter plug-in. Unplugged igniter, removed from range. Handling of igniter is tricky..do not touch black end. Slide new igniter into the bracket, feed wire with connector through hole in back (where igniter was removed from), install the three screws for the bracket (your new igniter is now secure), from the bottom, plug in the new connector it only goes on one way. Re-install pan with two screws. Put utility drawer back in..job is complete!!
I listened to see if the stove was igniting. It was not so we went with the igniter. It arrived in three days. I thin watched a u-tube repair. It was very helpful but looked as if a few steps were unnecessary. After reading the responses decided what steps could be eliminated and carefully replaced the part. It worked the first time. Besides handling the ceramic part very carefully the hardest part was remembering what screws went where! Extremely glad I took this on as a first time stove repair.
remove oven flare pan in bottom of stove, about 25 screws, lift out and remove igniter. tip stove back and remove splash pan from underneath, 2 screws, unplug ignitor and reinstall using reverse procedure. igniter is very fragile so be extremely careful with it. reuse old hardware to hold in place,reassemble and good to go.
