Took off oven door. Took out oven racks. Took out bottom oven cover above igniter. Igniter is held in by 2 screws,took them out with a small socket. Went to back of stove and unhooked white plug in - (part of igniter) Thats it. About as easy as it gets. Just reversed the process putting in the new one. Took about 25 minutes. It would have taken less time but I had a problem with one of the screws. Probably from the heat. The oven is 9 years old.

I replaced the control valve and gas regulator.The gas to the oven came on but in a pulsating motion. To get a steady supply of gas to the oven I had to replace the glow plug. Although the glo plug would light it did not pull enough current to turn the gas valve on steady.

Suspected the igniter, and verified by reading comments on your parts site. The mounting screws were frozen so I used larger screws. Piece of cake! Wa La!

I followed the instructions on this website. Luckily a friend showed me where the sensor was located and from there, it was a breeze. Removed six screws on the back oven panel, removed two screws inside of the oven, took the old sensor out and put the new sensor in. Voila - works great. I can't tell you how much I appreciate Parts Select and the feedback and help from the customers. I've been out of work for almost two years and when I called my repair guy, he said it could be the computer and that would be expensive. That's when I searched on line and found Parts Select. I would have never even attempted this on my own if it weren't for you and it was so simple. Next time anything goes wrong with an appliance, I'll be contacting you first! Thank you.
