basicly just replaced the element by unplugging the connector and removing the three screw that hold the element. easy process.
Identifing what part to replace was the most challenging task. So, what I did to trouble shoot what was broken and identify the specific compent was the following. I was not sure that the igniter was broken becuase it illuminated rather bright but the oven would not turn on. The broiler on the other hand worked fine so I removed the igniter from the broiler and placed it in place (the igneiter is a different size) of the oven igniter and guess what the burner cut on...So I ordered the oven igniter and everything worked fine.
I first diagnosed the problem with an ammeter, after I was sure of the problem I ordered the part and it came in 1 day early. When the part arrived I removed 12 screws to access the old part, unplugged it, plugged in the new one. The easiest way to save $150.00 I've managed.
I could see a flame glowing deep in the back of the oven but it would rarely heat to normal cooking temperatures. It was really frustrating when we tried to cook Easter dinner for family and friends but the oven didn't get much hotter than 200 for the first 3 hours. After tinkering with it sometimes it would get a little hotter. I was told it was probably the thermometer. However, after reading about similar problems on this site I decided to replace the oven ignitor first. I turned the gas off, unplugged the oven, removed the baking racks and the storage drawer. I removed the one nut holding the heat deflector on the bottom of the oven. Then three screws holding the oven ignitor in place. Reaching under the stove, removed two screws holding a heat shield on. The heat shield fell off effortlessly to reveal the leads of the oven ignitor and its snap plug. Unplugged the old oven ignitor and reversed the process to put the new ignitor in. After reassembly I turned the oven on to 350 to test it out. Hot and ready for baking in less than 10 minutes (with a little smell from the ignitor's first use). Total success for about $45 and 20 minutes of my time.
