This part fixes the following symptoms:
First removed 3 screws at burner front and back then pulled out lower storage drawer to disconnect plastic connector, removed and had to cut plastic connectors to use ceramic wire nuts (supplied with parts box) I had to work from underneath stove as well as in the oven it self, if the main door is easily removable it would have helped a great deal but four hours later

I was at my in-laws and they expressed how they needed to buy a new stove, since it stopped working. They explained the problem to me and I immediately checked the broiled (it worked fine). Knowing that stoves have 2 electric igniters, i knew 1 was bad.The site got me the part in 3 days (regular shipping).The repair was pretty easy.- Removed 2 screws that hold the floor of the oven.- Removed 2 nuts that held the igniter to the oven.- Removed the bottom drawer of the oven, and unplugged the igniter.- Finally, I screwed in the new igniter, fed the wire down to the plug and plugged it in.- Then I tested the oven before putting it back together, IT WORKED!)The only negative was, when I was removing the racks and pans from the oven, one of them happened to be filled with oil for frying, and it got all over me. Be prepared for anything when working on someone else's appliance.
Took bottom cover in oven off with screwdriver . Then remove two small bolts with socket to igniter , unplug from under stove and pull out from inside oven. Reverse to install. Wala done and working great.
removed the screws that held element in place, pulled out old igniter and replaced with new one.
Removed oven door and warming tray. Then removed two screws holding the igniter in place. Disconnect the plug visible below the oven after warming tray removal. Installed new igniter in reverse order.
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.
Had to use the wire nuts because the plug did not fit.I used the old plug and spliced the wires.Thanks for the ceramic wire nuts.
I got my part in a couple of days during christmas and still got at pretty quick it was 5 screws unpluged the old one pluged in the new one put screws back and we were ready to cook, did all from inside the oven did not even move the stove very simple!!
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).
This repair was so easy!! I found the part we needed on line with no problem, then I found Parts Select, saved $20.00(honest!) The part was here in 2 days, I bought beer ,called my brother in law and from the call to the oven working was less than an hour. Didn"t break a nail,
Remove botton pan of the oven to get at the igniter, remove bottom drawer to acess wires ,remove 2- screws from the igniter replace then replace oven bottom and drawer.
the tips you listed from; edward of Pipersville,Pa and Durwood of Suffield,Ct also Billie J of Western Grove, Ar were very helpful. Thanks to them & to you for posting them they were a time saver
replaced the glow bar ignitor
It was so easy ! take out 2 screws , unplug old igniter, plug in new igniter, replace screws and turn on the heat!! Thanksgiving Dinner is back to my house with the whole Family!!!
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.
