Igniter problem on one gas burner

I had to remove the two separate components of the gas burner unit, each had two screws. I lifted then tilted the lower portion of the burner unit to allow access to the underside of the igniter. I removed the wire and then with an offset screwdriver I removed the single screw that held the igniter in place. I reversed the steps to install the replacement, very quick fix.

I was also very pleased with how quickly the order was processed and the part was delivered, only three or four days with standard shipping.

One of the cooktop burners would not ignite

removed knobs, burnners, top cover plate, disconnecte two gas lines from burnners to controls, lifted burnner bar, unscrewed igniter, installed new ingiter, and then reassembled cooktop. There was a total of ten screws removed, and two gas lines disconnected. The total repair time was about twenty minutes. I ordered the part on line and it was at my home in less than 48 hours. Happy ending the cooktop works great, and the repair cost only equaled the cost of the part.
