This flat style gas oven igniter has ceramic housing and comes with a connector. The igniter body is just over three inches in length. Be very careful to not touch the black element part of this igniter as it is very fragile.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
1.) Trun Off Power2.) Remove the Storage Drawer and the two (2) screws holding on the (Ignitor Plug) access cover-plate located in the back of the storage drawer access. (see page 15 if same model)3.) Dissconnect the Ignitor Plug4.) From the oven opening remove the three screws holding the Ignitor Holder.5.) Remove the Ignitor and Holder from the oven by gently guiding the wires through the access hole6.) Pull the Ignitor from the holder7.) All Ignitors are extremelt fragile; install the new Ignitor into the Holder and make certain it is installed tight, mine was not. (Slight bending with my thumbs on the 1/4" flanges might hold it tighter if it is lose.)8.)Reverse the process.Note: One person here said they removed "ALL" the screws, maybe it was a different model, I only had to remove a total of "5" screws, two at the access cover plate and three at the Ignitor holder.First time took me 20 minutes, if I needed to do it today, maybe 10. Please also note that I didn't troubleshoot the Ignitor, as I didn't have a wrap-around amp meter, but the typical problem here would be the Ignitor, not the Gas Valve. Good Luck, pt

remove cover bottom of oven slides out, remove three screws holding ignighter, problem i had was finding how to get to where the wire connects. there is a cover all the way in the back held by two screws this is found after removeing storage drawer on bottom.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.

My husband did the repair. He removed the wires and screws from the element and replaced with new part.
Shut off electric power. Removed bottom drawer.Removed metal covers over burner in oven.Removed 3 screws holding igniter in place. Disconnected wire plug under oven and pulled thru hole where igniter had been. Removed metal shield from defective igniter. Used care to place it on new igniter. Reinstalled everything.My wife was observing and made me scrub under stove since I had the drawer removed.I found the other repair stories very helpful in diaignosing my problem and ordering the right part. I ordered on Monday and received Wednesday afternoon normal delivery. Very good service.
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!
Took cover off inside of oven to expose igniter - 1 nut! - igniter would not glow --3 screws to remove - pulled out storage drawer - un screwed oven shields - (2) - 6 screws - unplugged plastic igniter plug - an replaced! - simple - thank you and made wife buy me dinner for the probably $60 service call! --- thanks to those that posted before me to make this possible!
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.
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.
