This broil igniter assembly comes with its own metallic mounting bracket and a 7-inch-long dual wire lead with a plastic plug. This part will need to be repaired if your oven element is giving off no heat or very little, or is not heating evenly. You may also notice a smell of gas. The ignitor may still be glowing, but could still have gone bad. You will need a 1/4-inch nut-driver and a 5/16 nut-driver. Open the oven door and pull the door off the hinges to completely remove. Pull out the racks. Using your 1/4-inch nut driver, take out the screws at the bottom rear end of the oven, which will allow you to completely remove the bottom. Unscrew the nuts holding the igniter in place. Remove the igniter with the 5/16 nut driver. You should now have access to remove the old igniter.

Question:

Oven will not light. No smell of gas. Changed out oven igniter. Put everything back together and tried oven. Oven still does not come on. I hear a click in control panel, but no fire in oven. Anything i can do to make the oven work?

Randy for model number GW397LXUS06
Answer:

Hello Randy, Thank you for your question. If the igniter is working and the oven still does not light, it may be an issue with your gas supply. I would check the regulator as well as the Safety Valve (Part# PS11744553). Best of luck with your repair.

Oven has slowly been failing to maintain temperature. It final decided not to come up to temp at all. The piece of metal in the back was glowing like it was hot though. Using a long lighter it did ignite and slowly increase in temp but very slowly. What parts would you suggest. Thanks.

Oven wouldn't light.

It's happened before and the igniter has always been the problem. This time, however, the mounting holes were slightly off and had to be drilled out. The connector didn't mate up and so both had to be cut off, the wire stripped back and wire nuts used to make the connection. In the end, it all worked out. I guess since its kind of old, you can't stock every component for every oven. Oven works perfectly now.

Broiler wouldn't turn on(ignite)

Ordered the broiler igniter that matched my model from part select and installed. Easy and part works as it should. Only took a few days to get here and saved me $40 by not purchasing at a local parts store as well. Will use part select if there are any future needs.

Oven took to long to preheat

I expected to see a thermocouple and a heating element next to the gas valve but after reviewing other PartSelect stories from people with a similar problem I realized that the heating element also serves as the switch. Apparently as the heating element is energized by the oven control it draws more amps. The gas valve is allowed to open at a specific level corresponding to a sufficiently glowing heating element. I ordered a new heating element. The part received was made up of two pieces. The heating element and the metal mounting bracket. The element was identical but assumingly due to the age of my stove the bracket was slightly different. Fortunatly I was able to slide the new element into the old bracket. The only other obsticle was that the new element came with a two conductor connector and the old was installed with ceramic wire nuts. The connector was cut off and the ceramic wire nuts were reused. Its working fine.

Oven wouldn't heat

I first removed the screws inside the oven,let the tube that the flames come out of hang down,removed the screws from the igniter. Then I took the cover off the back of the stove and unplugged the old igniter and plugged in the new one. I put all screws back and put every thing back in place and the oven has been heating up every since. Thank you parts select. My husband is a otr trucker and won't be home until the 20th of this month. One less item on his "honey do list".

Oven wouldn't heat

I removed the oven racks, the bottom of the stove and a v-shaped cover that was over the heating element. The old gas ignitor screwed off easily after I put W-D 40 on the nuts. I un ooked the old gas igniter and replaced it with the new one. The oven lit immediately after I replaced everything. I am very proud of my self, I feel like a femal Bob Villa. I almost bought a new range. Boy am I happy!

Oven heated very slowly

Removed the drawer from under the stove then unscrewed the access panel in the back (two phillips head screws). Rather than take it off altogether I just swung it to one side.

The ignitor electrical connector required two hands to disconnect and it was a bit of a reach but came apart easily enough once I got hold of it.

Removed the racks and bottom from the oven. the bottom is held in by two pins in the back that you just slide toward the front then lift it out. I did not bother to remove the oven door, but some people might.

Then removed the two hex head screws holding the ignitor on and pulled the connector out of the hole leading to the bottom.

Installation is the reverse of removal The electrical connector was reluctant to back down the hole, but went with a little wiggling and pulling from underneath. Once you get it back down there the connector is keyed, so you can't get it wrong.

Piece of cake, really.

Total repair time: about 30 minutes, including the mandatory halfway beer break.

Oven wouldn't heat

Removed oven door by opening slightly and lifting straight up. Pulled out racks and removed bottom of oven. Unscrewed wingnut and removed burner shield. Removed 2 screws that hold igniter and unplugged the connection. Reverse the procedure to put it all back together.
Be patient, it takes a few moments for it to begin heating when you first turn it on.
So easy a woman can do it ! I know,(I am one).

Oven wouldn't heat

I removed the floor of the oven (one screw) and the heat dispersal shield (one wing nut). Then I detached the old igniter using a socket set. I had to remove the bottom drawer to unplug the ignitor and plug in the new one. Then I reassembled. Total piece of cake and I have no experience whatsoever.

Install new igniter, plug it in, and reassemble. Easy as pie! Oven works better than it has for a looooong time! Heats up to 400 in 5 minutes. Wife is happy! :)

Customer: Fred from Suwannee, FL

Oven very slow to light on bake mode. Gas smell.

First I removed the bottom plate in the oven. The ignitor was located at the rear of the burner and I removed to screws and it was loose except for the two wires. Next I removed the bottom tray from the stove. Two screws held the metal guard in place at the rear of the stove. After removing the plate, I determined which wires belonged to the ignitor, unplugged them at the coupling and pulled the wires out through the bottom of the oven. Replacing the ignitor was simply to reverse the proceedure. PartSelect got the part right out to me, installing the new part was a breeze, and my wife calls me her "hero." This site was a real help and saved me a service/repair bill. Thanks!
Fred
