Oven Igniter - Vertical Mount

PartSelect Number PS2085070

This broil igniter assembly comes with its own metallic mounting bracket and a 7-inch-long dual wire lead with a plastic plug. This part will need to be repaired if your oven element is giving off no heat or very little, or is not heating evenly. You may also notice a smell of gas. The ignitor may still be glowing, but could still have gone bad. You will need a 1/4-inch nut-driver and a 5/16 nut-driver. Open the oven door and pull the door off the hinges to completely remove. Pull out the racks. Using your 1/4-inch nut driver, take out the screws at the bottom rear end of the oven, which will allow you to completely remove the bottom. Unscrew the nuts holding the igniter in place. Remove the igniter with the 5/16 nut driver. You should now have access to remove the old igniter.

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:

  • Gas igniter glows, but will not light.
  • Little to no heat when baking.
  • Will Not Start.
  • Gas smell.
  • Element will not heat.
  • Oven not heating evenly.

Really helpful site, fast shipping

My oven would not work. It took longer & longer to fire, finally died. I did an online search & found partselect.com, with it's very helpful troubleshooting info, and somebody posted info that 80-90% of the time it's the ignitor that has failed. I ordered it Sunday night, it arrived Tuesday. I took the door off for easy access, took the bottom of the oven out, removed the flame shield and replaced the ignitor. I tested it and it worked! The hardest part was moving the stove away from the wall & threading the ignitor plug thru the back of the oven. The cheapest appliance repair visit would have been $89 + cost of parts. Sears charges $129. I think I saved at least $100, thanks to partselect.com.

Oven wasn't getting hot and smelled gassy

We took the interior floor out, pulled the stove away from counter, before that turned all electricity to the house off. Then we unscrewed the ignitor inside then underneath unplugged it and plugged in the new one, cleaned to oven and screwed the ignitor in and replaced the interior floor and we were done.

Oven would light , but would not go over 350 degrees

Checked troubleshooting guide on website / ordered part / replaced part by removing two screws in oven on bottom pan/ removed inside oven bottom for easiy access/ removed two screws from bracket holding down the heating element/separated the electrical plug in back releasing the wires to heating element/ installed the new element with two screws / connected the electrical plug/ installed the bottom panel inside oven / installed two screws inside oven on bottom panel. Checked operation of unit- gas lit ok - pushbutton panel did not increase heat seting properly/ dismantled the control panel / dismanteled the circuit board / found remains of several roaches inside circuit board recess/ cleaned all pushbutton points and re-assembled unit - all worked fine except when oven burner went off - the gas valve would not shut off completely - leaving a small flame burning at the gaaas valve orifice "DANGEROUS". I checked troubleshooting guide again / ordered a new valve - installed - (did not come with a new Propane orifice ) - had to use old one ( should have either asked me or just sent one when I ordered) - received new valve - installed with old Propane orifice - all works well now.

Stove would not preheat above 175

My stove would take forever to preheat and sometimes it wouldn't heat above 175. I order a new igniter, which was located under the drip pan . It took less then ten mins to replace and the stove is working like new.

Smell of gas and would not always light or took forever to preheat

Remove the oven door by opening halfway and lifting door away from stove. Removed racks and bottom pan from oven area exposing the gas bar and vertical mount igniter. Next remove bottom storage door. With phillips screwdriver remove 2 screws securing rear cover plate in back of storage area, accessing the igniter connection, and unplug the plug. Next back in oven, remove 2 5/16 sheet metal screws securing igniter with a nut driver and remove igniter by getly pulling disconnected end thru to oven. Now reverse process, install new vertical mount igniter and push connection down thru to storage area, then reconnect wire connection and put cover plate back on.
At this piont I turned oven on and checked igniter, it glowed red right away and the oven lit right up. Put storage door, oven door, bottom oven panel, and racks back in and done. Took 15 minutes tops, and anyone can do this, super easy. My oven would sometimes take half hour to preheat to 350,if it even lit, now 5 minutes, and it lights every time. Save the cost of a repair man folks, this one can be done by any weekend warrior.
I would just like to note....if you are uncomfortable with disconnecting wire plugs and plugging them back in, just unplug the oven from the wall as well before changing out the part, just to be safe.

Wrong connector on new part.

seamed easy enough. Found the part and it looked identical, However I could not see the connector in the picture because the logo covered that part of the picture. Had to cut the connector off the old igniter and crimp it on to the new ingniter.

Gas oven igniter glowed but didn't lite

I removed the cover protecting the igniter. I pulled the stove away from the wall to get at the connect for the igniter. I loosened the 2 screws which held the igniter.
Took the new igniter ran the wire to the back to the connection and mounted the igniter with the 2 screws. Turned on the oven to make sure it works and it did. Turned off the oven, replace the cover and pushed the stove back in place. No big Deal!
Your web site was very helpful. Thank you so much!

You couldn't use the oven because the gas igniter quit working

I was sure my problem was due to a gas ingiter that was no longer working. I read about others that had the same problem as I did. I ordered the part from Partselect because they had a 30 day no hassle parts return policy.
I removed the oven racks and 4 screws to get to the igniter.
I unpluged the igniter, put the new one in, and replaced the racks. Very simple and easy to do.
