This is a flat style oven igniter used to light the element in a gas range. When the element in this igniter glows white hot, the gas is released from the safety valves, which lights the oven burner. If your range is not heating properly, or not heating at all, it might indicate a problem with this part. If the element in the igniter is only glowing red or orange, or not glowing at all, it will need to be replaced. This is a shorter style igniter. It is 3.72 inches in length, and it features an 18-inch wire lead. This kit includes the igniter, an instruction sheet, a mounting bracket, and the two ceramic wire nuts needed for installation. This part has an amperage range of 3.2 to 3.6. Unplug your appliance before you start any repair work.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:

First I removed the two screws that held the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconected the two wires. Take the old element out, and attach the new one. Assemble in reverse order.
took the old igniter out and swapped the connectors onto the new one. Kept the connectors close to the connector end to prevent them from being to close to the ovens heat.
removed the old igniter, installed the new one. 15 minutes, piece o cake!
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. I made sure I memorized just how the wires would re-connect with the wirenuts. I then re-assembled everything. Be sure to read all the instructions, especially how to properly install wirenuts. I was able to access the wire connections below the oven chamber through the drawer at the bottom of the range. This is an important detail.
Followed service sheet. Measured 2.6 amps draw at igniter wire which should have been 3.2 amps. Replaced igniter and problem resolved.
1. Unplugged power cord.2. Removed warming drawer and oven shelves and lower plate3. Removed old wirenuts from back of warming draw space (awkward to reach in to the back).4. Removed 2 screws holding ignitor in oven - screws in poor shape and were not reuseable.5. Found next size up sheetmetal screws and installed new ignitor.6. Ran wires down adjacent to gas feed into warming drawer space.7. Connected with wirenuts supplied with ignitor.8. Replaced everything.9. Tested oven and ate some tasty blueberry muffins.
I just sent in a generic description of my problem and a couple of ideas on what it might be. Within 2 days an online repair person answered me back with the solution. I ordered the part and 2 days later I was back in business and baking cookies.
First, I read all the instrutions that came with my replacement part from Parts Select thoroughly (twice) then follewed them like an experienced surgeon. I removed the lower drawr after turning off the gas and unplugging the stove and then took out the bottom panels inside the oven to expose the screws holding the ignitor coil. Removed it, then cnnected the new one to the existing wires as they were in the stove and the drawing in the instructions, then replaced everything in the reverse of them coming apart. Plugged it back in, turned the gas back on and now it,ll bake things again. YEAH!! Parts Select!!!
Removed the two screws, took out the old one and replaced the new one. It was very easy and the oven works great now. Thanks.
Removed racks. removed two screws in back of bottom shelf of oven.Do not know what type of nut or other fastener was on other end of those screws as they would not tighten when I put them back in. However they are in the holes and the shelf isnt going anywhere.The shelf lifted right out lifting the back up first and sliding out from under lip in front. easy access to igniter use a nut driver for this.In the bottom left corner there was a triangle shape cover that needed removed held by one screw. both wires had clip in style connectors that come right out.Cut these off with plenty of wire to attach to new wires with wire nuts provided with new igniter.Put everything back like the old came off. I used a little electrical tape over wire nuts.Closed oven door and tuned on oven and watched my wife begin to smile as the igniter turned red and oven kicked on.
The day after Christmas I searched the net reading various reviews, etc. PartSelect seemed to be the easiest site to navigate and offered How To's notes. Wednesday, less than two days later the oven igniter arrived. This was the third igniter in six years. The grandkids watched me intensly as I read the How to's and easily installed the new igniter. Because of the ease with the website and the fast delivery I am keeping PartSelect.com as part of my resources for the home self doer. The cost was competitive saving me over $100.00 doing it myself. Thank you PartSelect. Joe W Cleveland, Ohio.
Removed broiling drawer to gain access to the igniter. Remove igniter from mounting bracket, ,cut wires, attach new igniter wiring and reinstall the igniter on the bracket. Reinstall the broiling drawer to complete the job.
disconnected the (2) wires of old igniter from (2) wire nuts located under oven in back of bottom drawer, took out (2) mounting screws holding igniter assembly and held it together to new igniter assembly. Stretched out wires together and cut new wires same length as old wires, then mounted new igniter with same (2) screws and connected wires with new included wire nuts and replaced all other oven parts, turned on oven and had a nice TV dinner! :-) Extremely pleased with PartSelect. Ordered part on Tuesday night and had it by Thursday night the week of Christmas no less! Kudos to PartSelect! Great service!
First, I took out the racks. Then I removed the bottom cover of the stove. (This was in place by two screws that I used my drill & socket set.) Next, remove burner cover by a socket set. Finally, in the corner was a metal cover that covered part of the electrical connections. I then used the screw driver to undo the screws that attached the igniter to the oven. I undid one wire connection, and wired it with the new one on the igniter. (To make sure I wired it correctly.) Then I undid the other wire, and connected it with the new wire (using the new wiring nuts provided.) Done! Now just put all the parts back together.
