I followed the video and it was incredibly easy. I shut the breaker off (we live in an apartment, and pulling the plug on the stove wasn't possible). I lifter out the old burner (the gasket underneath was corroded, and I just threw it out, as the newer burners are self-sealing); removed both the igniter wire and the ground wire (I needed a pliers to tug the igniter wire off); attached the new burner; replaced the burner; turned on the power; and voila!

Watched u tube video as supplied and followed instructions. Had trouble getting burners off so cleaned around edge of burners with fine bladed knife as suggested by other forum user and used oil filter type wrench to remove burner. There are three bumps on burner that hold it in place so need to turn anti clockwise to remove.

BURNER DID NOT IGNITE. HOLE ON SIDE OF BURNER HAD A HOLE, SO FLAME WAS UNEVEN.

USED CHANNELOCK PLIERS TO ROTATE BURNER COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. PULLED OFF THE CONNECTORS, APPLIED RUST TREATMENT TO THE REPLACEMENT PART, WHICH HAD ITSELF STARTED TO CORRODE. SPADE LUGS ON THE OLD PART HAD A SPADE ADAPTER, BUT THE CONNECTION SEEMED TO WORK REGARDLESS OF THE MISS-MATCH. PART WAS REPLACED, TURNING THE BURNER CLOCK-WISE. VERY QUICK AND EASY REPAIR.

I had gas and electricity but the ignites weren't sparking.

Very easy. I disconnected the original burner with one turn as well as the two wire connections for the electronic igniter. I then connected the wires to the same positions on the new burner and placed the new burner in place with one half turn to match the indented openings to secure the burner tightly in place.

This is the second repair to this stove-- A few years ago I went to Parts Select to find a new light panel, and that repair went perfectly. So when we re-did the kitchen I decided that the old stove would look fine so long as we could find some new grates. Custom-sized, nobody had them, but your company found them and shipped them quickly. We thoroughly cleaned the stove and PERFECT! This is a good way to keep stoves and other appliances out of the landfill!! I love it.

Your site was easy to navigate, which made determining the problem from other customers easy, and choosing the correct part to replace the malfunctioning burner.

The malfunctioning burner was easy to remove by twisting it a quarter turn counter clockwise, removing the two wires and replacing it with the new burner cap with electrode.

All the burner caps had badly rusted; tip-off was the smell of gas.

Our handyman took off the burner caps and checked after we reported smelling gas. We ordered the replacements here, and they arrived by only the 2nd business day, instead of 3-5 as expected. The only hard part was scouring off the rust, with SOS pads, from the stove top before putting on the new burner caps (a simple plug-in)!! This is very important to check on your stove; you could blow-up your house! The gas was escaping under the old burner cap, through the rusted-out portions.

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.

Burners were completly worthless, dangerous
