Igniter burned out

Thanks to previous reviews it was really easy! Popped cover plate off bottom of oven. Removed diffuser plate by using socket wrench to remove one bolt. Removed three screws (one on top; two on left side) of bracket. Good idea to use a magnetic screwdriver so they don't get lost! Slid igniter out of bracket- a bit tricky but gently eased it out. Slid new igniter in place taking care not to touch the element. Dropped wires and harness down next to old ones. Removed bottom drawer, crawled under and switched connections. Put everything back together. It did take a little longer for the new igniter to start the first time- about one minute- but now fires right up.

Part arrive only a couple of days after ordering, and installation time was less than to schedule a repairman! My only regret is that I didn't send my better half off for the entire afternoon so I could really make it out to be a big deal as my brother-in-law, the appliance repairman, made it out to be!

The oven would not ignite, but the brolier was working fine.

I assumed it was the igniter. The trick is to remove the bottom storage drawer for access to where the igniter is connected. You then need to run the wire up into the oven and mount next to the gas.

Oven wouldn't come on

you need to remove the shield then the tray under the burner and burner tube.then you can get to the plug. Just remember when putint it back you need to put the burner tube in first then the tray then you can screw the element back in place. replace all the screws. works great.

Oven wouldn't heat up.

First, I took out the racks from the oven. Next, I took out the black small square cover off the bottom of the stove, which gave me access to the oven ignitor. Then, I removed the screws to be able to take out the ignitor. Finally, I took the bottom drawer out to access the ignitor wire. I pulled the plastic connectors to disconnect the wire. I took the ignitor out and replaced with the new one. I put everything back in reverse order. The oven warmed up about 2 minutes after I turned it on.

Oven would not light

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Once I received the replacement part I simply reversed the process and it worked perfectly.

Oven wouldn't heat

This is the second igniter I've had to install in the last 2 years. First time the repair was done by the company I bought the range from. $35. part/ 140. labor. I watched the repairman do the job. It is literally one nut, three screws, and an electrical plug and socket. Here's the interesting part of the story: the appliance store would NOT sell the part to me. They insisted on installing it themselves. NOT FOR $140. Thanks for your help, great and easy to use website. I spent the $140. I saved of golf. Thanks again!

Oven ignitor would not turn on

First, i removed all of the oven parts that needed to come out in order for me to remove the ignitor. Second, removed the manifold and the old oven ignitor. Then, i checked for 120 volts going to the ignitor. Replaced the ignitor with the new one and reassembled all of my oven parts. 15 mins top, but of course it may take a little longer for those of you who are not elecrically and mechanically inclined. Very east to repair.

Oven would not lite or heat up

The repair actually started online trying to figure out the problem. The parts list and picture provided were a big help. I actually got lucky when I ordered the part. It was a little difficult to get to but once I got the old one out, it was easy and done quick. Saving at least $100 on a repair man was awesome. I had to find the part in the stove first. Then had to find the wiring harness to disconnect. After taking off the back panel and the oven burner plate, the wire harness was exposed. I disconnected, taped on the new wires, remounted the new igniter and put it all back together. Pretty quick and pretty easy.
