CustomerPaul from North Grosvenordale CT

Igniter replacement

First, I was amazed at how fast I received my order. I ordered the part on a Friday morning and i received it Saturday morning. Standard shipping.
The repair should have been much easier than it was.
I removed the oven door by just pulling up and out. then i removed the door underneath the oven. The i reached underneath and disconnected the igniter. From inside the oven, i removed the bottom panel(2 screws). Then i removed the front screw holding the gas tube. I was able to move the tube enough to get at the two screws holding the igniter. one of the screws came out easily using an adjustable wrench. but the other did not come out straight. i had to use tin snips to cut off the igniter so i could acess the screw easier. replacement was in reverse.

CustomerYoung O'Neill from Fairfield NJ

Old igniter burned out

I was sure happy that they thought to add in the ceramic wire nuts. This Hotpoint stove had a direct wire, no wire clips like the new part had. I cut the wires and used the enclosed ceramic wire nuts. The stove works great. Parts Select helped in locating the model number which made this transaction a smooth one. Thanks. Always remember to turn off gas line and unplug any item you work on.

Oven wouldn't heat

Although the original oven design called for a round igniter, the most recent replacement, done by a service mechanic, utilized a flat igniter. I compared the appearance of this flat igniter to the igniters offered by PartSelect and found that the GE igniter (not the Roper which cost twice as much) matched exactly. I installed it and that solved the problem (of insufficient igniter heat to turn on the gas).

CustomerSam from Aurora IL

Oven and broiler would not operate.

This job is done from the inside of the oven. Remove the drawer on the bottom. Open the oven and remove the bottom panel in oven which is fastened by two screws at the back. Lift up panel and pull foward to remove. Unscrew deflector plate and small plate that covers wiring hole. Remove ignitor from the burner. Replace ignitor. I found that you should also relpace burner at the same time. Burner usually causes the ignitor to go out. My burner had a hole in it and flames were shooting out directly on the ignitor which shortened the life of the ignitor. When you buy the burner it comes with an ignitor, you can't buy burner seperately but you can buy the ignitor seperately, so I recommend buying the kit.

CustomerJohn from Pacifica CA

Wife complained that oven was not maintaing proper temp

Researched problem came to conclusion that igniter was not staying hot (seemed to intermittently go on and off ). One connector and two screws problem solved and the cherry pies are back in my oven and ready for dessert! : )

CustomerJames from Rockville RI

The oven burner would not light

I removed the oven door, the base panel of the oven and slid out the broiler tray. Next, I pulled the wires out of the access hole in the back of the oven, then diconnected the modular plug and removed the 2 screws fastening the ignitor. I tested the ignitor with my ohm meter and found out that it did not have the necessary zero ohms resistance. The meter indicated an open circuit, so I ordered the replacement part, which was delivered in less than 24 hours. Then I reassembled everything and tried the oven. Works like new again.
