Igniter lit but valve wouldn't shift

Take the advice that it's the igniter. Even thought the igniter lights, it doesn't mean it passes the correct current to the valve. Too much or too little won't work. I'd suggest changing the igniter first. I used to be in the valve business, that kind of valve lasts millions of cycles. The igniters on the other hand break down after a5-10 years

Oven would not light

I found the best was to remove the oven door and the broiller drawer. Then I removed the panel that seperates the two areas. This gave me great access. Next I removed the shield (1 screw) and the burner (3 screws). Then the inlet pipe (don't forget to turn off the gas, as I did). Remove the valve (2 screws)...........Remove the mounting bracket from old valve and install it on the new one. Then it's just a matter of reversing the prior steps and your'e done!
