The trickiest part was locating the elusive spark module. I am not certain I took the best route, but not considering all the wrong routes in trial and error, it was the most expedient. Certainly there must have been a single something to remove to get to this frequently faulted part..

Anyhow, thanks to the great part, the stove works really well again.

Oven would not heat - Gas would not flow.

Basic instructions provided were accurate. Most difficult part was bending down and reaching across the oven door. A general information note would have been helpful. The circuit that feeds the igniter and the gas valve is a series circuit. So, even though the igniter was glowing cherry red, the igniter was still the cause of the gas not flowing, The voltage drop across the igniter was larger then normal causing the voltage to the gas valve to go down and to be insufficient to allow the gas to flow.

After watching your do-it yerself video, I turned off the gas and unpluged ac power cord, I removed the stove door and then removed the bottom tray inside the stove unscrewed tray plate pulled buner out of its housing. I then unscrewed the two screws to the old ignitor and unpluged it. Pluged in the new one screwed it to the burner bracket, put everything back togher then tuned on the stove. IT WORKS!!

This is one of the easiest home repairs I have ever done. I shut off the gas and unplugged the oven. I removed the door and shelves. I then removed the two screws that secured the igniter and pulled the connector through the hole in the back of the the oven. No need to splice any wires as the replacement igniter came with the correct connector. It was then just a matter of reversing the process. Very simple and quick fix.

I watched the video of the repair that was on the page, and said, "Oh, it can't be that easy." It was. I just followed the steps he did, and the had the old igniter out and the new one in in no time. I did have to go back in and add the new insulation, as I thought the old would be sufficient for the new igniter, but, other than that, I had it in and out in just a few minutes. The video was really, really helpful! If you don't know what you are doing, just watch it!

We were at a loss for a long time without my boost burner and then while checking all the rest of the burners my husband discovered that all of them had a massive amount of rust on the underneathe side of the burners and that worried me. Well as usual my husband took care of my worries when he discovered Parts Select. We both were pleasantly surprised when we found out that you had what we needed. And the installation was less than 5 minutes, WOW, THAT WAS GREAT! Thanx a million!
