oven wouldnt heat up but stove top still worked

ge gas oven that i've had for over ten years without any problems just stopped heating up even though i could see the igniter glowing red. once i was able to determine or "lucky guess" it was the igniter, i pulled the power plug so i couldn't get zapped. i took out all the drip pans and covers inside the oven to access the igniter. i then proceeded to remove the broiler drawer and disconnect the wires underneath. two screws on the igniter and was able to remove the bad one. now working on my table i cut the wires off the old igniter and spliced them with the supplied wire nuts (x2). i also felt better wrapping them after with electrical tape for my own added security. installed the new igniter and reconnected the slide clips under oven ,put all of the drip pans, etc back in the same way it came out. plugged it back in and double checked all of my connections and made sure there was no gas leaks, and everything worked beautiful. cost me $50 for the part that took only 2 days to get after i ordered, and about a half hr of my time with basic handyman skills. thanks parts select!!!!!!!

Drawer would not stay level or move easily

The drawer dropped down and would not easily open or shut or fit up good when closed. A quick inspection showed that one of the rear drawer guides was broken. The parts were ordered on a weekend and they showed up on Tuesday. We already had the pots and pans out of the drawer. It took about 10 minutes to put in the new guides (I replaced the one not broken also), clean and lubricate the drawer slides. Good as new. The repair video, although not necessary for this repair, was excellent. Thanks a bunch!

Disconnected the electrical supply to the Oven. Removed Oven base heat shield by unscrewing thumb screws in the back of the oven. Removed secondary heat distribution plate from the gas burner by unscrewing two self tapping metal screws on the front of the plate and unscrewing the retaining nut in the center of the plate. Removed two stainless steel retaining screws holding the oven igniter, cut the electrical wires to the igniter removed the fiberglass insulation tubes from the existing wires and placed them on the new igniter wires. Routed the new electrical wires through the access in the bottom of the over where the original wires came from the control circuit. Reconnected the new electrical leads to the previous leads using ceramic wire nuts supplied with the igniter. Reconnected electrical supply and tested oven igniter to ensure it would heat and ignite the gas oven burner. Reassembled the heat distribution plate onto the oven burner. Reassembled the oven base plate. Note: Replaced the oven light during the repair cycle.

I followed past on-line repair reviews by prior customers, who problems were nearly identical to mine. It was basically an extremly easy repair. Those reviews/notes are great, leading to using partselect as a valuable start source for parts replacement. (I removed the part before ordering for assurance of getting the correct item. )
