Oven would not light

New parts matched up perfectly. Undid screws holding old igniter, hardest part of procedure because one screw was frozen and broke off. Pulled stove out and new igniter"s connector was identical. Pushed stove back into place and it lighted on the first try.

Broke the igniter in the oven before I even got the oven installed

ordered the new igniter kit, it was delivered the NEXT day, followed the instructions, it was a lot easier then my old Tappan oven, took about 15 minutes. Not bad at all, and I am a 58 year old woman.

Oven would not start, ignitor was not doing anything

My wife said the oven would not heat up, I took a look at it and determined it was not igniting. I figured there was an electric spark like my BBQ. When I took the pan out of the bottom of the oven I saw that it did not look like anything I had seen before. I looked it up online and found out it had a glow ignitor that just heats up and then ignites the gas. Mine wasn't doing anything so I removed it, got a part number off of it an plugged that into this site. It came up with the part, i ordered it, put it in and started it up. probably took about 45 minutes total including taking it out and then replacing it. Really easy and the oven is now working fine. Figured it would have been a couple hundred dollars to have someone come to the house and fix it, I did it myself for less than 50. Thanks Partselect.

Oven would not light reliably.

Just like the example I removed the oven base, removed the two screws holding the igniter. Pulled out the wires opened the connector, plugged in the new igniter put everything back and turned on the oven. The oven now lights better than it did when new. And it holds a steady temp.

Oven would not heat up fully, smelled of gas.

Took off the top plate at the bottom of the oven, and the flame spreader, removed 2 screws on the igniter, pulled out the broiler tray and unplugged it. Took longer to get off the floor than it did to replace the part.

CustomerMatt from Arlington AL

Oven was slow to get to temp and not holding temp

Thanks to previous posters, this seemed to be an igniter issue, and I found the idea of swapping the broiler igniter for the bottom one particularly good - I knew exactly what part was broken and how easy/hard the job would be prior to ordering. The part used snap in electric components, so the only work was in removing and re-installing the parts. Working in the oven was by FAR the most difficult part of the entire process.

Igniter for oven not working

Instead of buying a new range my son said he could replace the part so I looked your company up on internet and had it shipped. Three days later I was cooking with gas again! Thanks!

CustomerALAN from LUCK WI

Igniter would glow but stove wouldn't light

I NOTICED THAT THE IGNITOR WOULD GLOW BUT THE STOVE WOULDN'T LIGHT - I GOT THE MODEL NUMBER OF THE STOVE AND GOOGLED THE MAYTAG MODEL NUMBER. CAME UPON YOUR WEBSITE AND REALIZED THAT 94% OF THE TIME THE PROBLEM WAS THE AMPS WERE NOT ENOUGH TO LIGHT THE STOVE. I LOOKED AT ALL OF THE STORIES ON HOW EASY IT WAS TO FIX. I ORDERED THE PART AND RECEIVED IT WITHIN 3 DAYS. I OPENED THE DOOR PART WAY AND LIFTED IT STRAIGHT UP TO REMOVE IT. I PULLED OUT THE BOTTOM BROILER PLATE BY GRABBING THE BACK ON PULLING UP. I UNDSCREWED THE WING NUT OF THE FLAME BAR AND HAD EASY ACCESS TO THE IGNITER. I REMOVED THE TWO NUTS FROM THE OLD IGNITER. UNPLUGGED THE IGNITER FROM THE EASY ACCESS DOOR FROM THE BACK AND PLUGGED IN THE NEW IGNITER. REPLACED THE ACCESS DOOR AND ATTACHED THE IGNITER WITH THE TWO NUTS. PUT THE FLAME BAR BACK ON, PUT THE BROILER PLATE BACK ON, PUT THE DOOR BACK ON, PLUGGED IN THE STOVE TURNED IT ON AND SUCCESS. IT WAS SO EASY. I KNOW IN OUR AREA I WOULD HAVE PAID NEAR $200 FOR A SERVICE TECHNICIAN TO COME OUT AND DO WHAT I DID IN APPROX. 20 MINUTES AND $50 FOR THE PART. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU WEBSITE TO HELP US NOT SO TALENTED APPLIANCE REPAIR HOMEOWNERS.

Oven ignitor went to ignitor heaven.

The repair was real easy, other than the old bolts which just turned in the sockets when trying to get them out. It might be a good idea to provide two nuts and bolts to negate this problem. I would not mind paying a dollar or two extra for two bolts and nuts. Other than that, the instructions were clear. Product arrived on time and I would absolutely use your services again. Oven is back to working great! Thank you!
