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! : )
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.
Uninstalled the igniter and reinstalled the new one.
removed the screws holding unit in pkce ,unplugged unit'Then I had to cut plug in off new unit and put old plug on new unit. the new unit only had 1 plug and the stove had a2 plug systtem. The put unit back in by replacing thw screws.
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.
Well first off ordered the part on Monday was here by Tuesday before I went to work. Was able to replace the part the next day and had pizza for lunch for me and the little woman. Just also want to say Thank You.
