First, unplug stove. Remove 2 screws from the oven plate, lift the plate with 2 hands and remove from oven. [The oven plate sit right on top of oven bracket.] Then I unplugged wires from the wiring harness. Removed the 2 screws from the igniter that was attached to the oven bracket. Replaced new igniter by plugging new wires first before attaching igniter back to oven bracket. Replace oven plate. Replug your stove back into electricity. And I turned the oven on.It took less than 30 minutes. I feel like I have a brand new stove. My oven works perfectly now. I purchased this stove 4 years ago. Now I believe the stove I had before this one probably had the same problem as this one. A problem which we could have solved with a $34 part plus shipping. I also saved myself a fee of $165.00. And that was my cheapest quote.

I was an easy fix on my unit due to my wiring access. All I needed to do was slide to all the internal racks and remove the cover at the bottom on the over. To access my wiring I removed the Broiler draw and then I was able to unplug the A/C 110 volt plug. Then I could see the two wire plug for the Igniter, so discounted that and removed the two screws holding the Igniter, remove it. Then placed the new one in place of the old one, installed the two screws and plugged in the Igniter plug. I then re-assembled the oven and plugged the A/C 110 volt plug and turned on the over to bake at 350 degrees and it worked perfectly.

This igniter arrive the next day after ordering- to my surprise- and with that I proceeded to replace it . Although I thought it was installed the same way as I removed the old one, no,it was facing too far away from the actual part where the gas flows. After smelling gas without the oven being lit, I called the national gas co. And was told I had to install the igniter closer to the gas supply. Otherwise and after all is corrected,there is no smelling of gas. Thanks partselect for the overall service in shipping.

Oven would not get hot

I could see the glow of the igniter through the broiler opening but the burner tube wouldn't light. I ordered a new igniter and replaced it. Worked great after that. You have to remove the two racks in your oven. Then remove the two screws in the back, bottom. Then remove the bottom plate. The igniter was right there. Remove the two machine, hex nut screws holding the igniter in place. gently pull the wire connection through the back hole to expose and disconnect it. Your new igniter comes with a connector already on it but it won't necessarily fit your old one (like in my case) so use the wire strippers to cut the connector off and strip the wires. Then use the two ceramic wire nuts to re-connect it. Put everything back together and let your spouse pay hommage to the talented, remarkable person you are! PartSelect Rocks!

I replaced the igniter with one ordered form Parts Select. It was the exact replacement except for the plug. The new one had female pins and the old mating surface also had female pins. Had to cut the plug from the old igniter and replace the plug on the new igniter.

Much like the provided video, I followed all of the instructions. The only difference is that I needed to use the Ceramic wire nuts to join the new igniter wires to the old ones. There is no removable port to access the igniter plug behind the oven wall as is show in the video. You must strip the wires on the old igniter and the new one and then join them inside the oven with the provided ceramic wire nuts.
