Oven wouldn't light, burners worked fine (gas oven).

Unplugged the power cord from the oven. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to remove the broiler drawer so I didn't have a lot of room to work. Basically I had to unscrew one Phillips screw to remove the metal housing that shields the wiring and connectors from direct flame of the oven. Once I removed the housing it was a matter of removing 2 wire caps where the wires from the igniter spliced into the power source. Once the wires were disconnected, I unscrewed the 2 Phillips screws that attached the igniter to the mounting bracket and removed the old igniter. I had to cut the wires on the new igniter to the correct length and stripped the insulation so about 1/4" of bare wire was exposed to splice to the wire from the power source. I then attached the igniter to the mounting bracket (2 screws), twisted the wires together to connect to the power and attached the wire connector caps. I reinstalled the protective housing (1 screw) making sure the wires were clear and not being pinched. Plugged the power cord back in, turned the oven on and everything worked fine.

Remove the old igniter from bracket with screwdriver.

Thread the new wire where the old wire went. Now Mount the new igniter to the bracket. Strip the old wire about 1" . Use Ceramic 'twist connectors' supplied. Plug in the stove and test the new igniter. When happy with the instillation, unplug the electric and allow the new igniter to cool. Finally, re-attach the cover plate on the back wall of oven, replace the broiler drawer and oven door. Congradulate yourself and have a beer.

Oven would not fire up

First checked with my flash light to see what was not happening. Compared the part with your oven parts, figured it out from there! Removed the wire, then the igniter from the bracket and that was it,just replaced the part. The ceramic tips for the wires came in handy.Now I can cook my turkey.Not bad for a girl!

The oven wouldn't light. It glowed but wouldn't light. I came on your site to order a different part but after reading posts by others with my same problem figured I would try this first. It worked!!

My husband did the repair so I really don't know, he unscrewed the old one and screwed the new one on. Probably a little more detail but it seemed that quick to me!
