One of the 2 screws that holds the igniter to the burner assembly was stripped and difficult to get out. Other than that it was an easy fix.
Were these instructions helpful?
My husband read the instructions and unplugged the electricity and turned off gas - removed door took bottom of oven out - removed the igniter-replaced it with the new part, plugged it into back of oven, pushed it in until it clicked, put everything back in as it came out. It took about 10 minutes. Worked great- oven working wonderful and my husband did a great job.
simple watch a viedo first
Followed directions posted on this site. Directions were exactly the same. old igniter was longer than the new one but works perfectly.
Removed the bottom cover in the oven. I then removed the gas burner assembly and unplugged the igniter. Removed the 2 self tappers holding the igniter to the burner assembly and installed the new part. Put everything back in reverse order. It would have only taken me about 15 minutes except I had to run out and get 2 new self tappers.
Turned off circuit breaker, disconnected the defective igniter in the oven area, removed oven storage drawer, removed protector cover to igniter connector, disconnected the defective igniter. Connected the new igniter to the lead, replaced protector cover and installed the the new igniter to the attachment bracket in the oven area. Replaced flame diffuser, oven racks, reset circuit breaker. Tested oven temp- worked perfect!
This was as easy as all the other posts indicated! Most glad I did it. Quick delivery too! Amazing the difference in the ignition and how quickly the stove heats up now. Followed the online video. I chose not to remove the center piece as I thought the access did not mandate that much room to swap out the parts
I watched the instruction video and followed all the steps. I was amazed how easy it was to change the Igniter.I had no problems at all. I had it install in less than 15 minutes.
4 screws to remove, unplug wired connection, removed old ignitor, replaced with new one. No need for extra parts or wires that came with kit. Only difficulty was lighting, and positioning to get to screws that held ignitor in place, otherwise simpler then expected. Saved myself $150/$200 on service call. Thanks to this site and some YouTube searching.
First I watched a few videos (from this site and on YouTube). Then I took apart the oven as directed, measured the old igniter, ordered the new one. When it arrived after a week, I cut off the coupler, stripped the ends to have 3/8 in. showing, used the ceramic caps to wire the new igniter in place. Replaced the insulation provided, screwed everything back in place, connected the electricity and gas and was done. Because the oven is so old, it took a while longer than I expected to loosen the parts, but everything went back together fairly easily.
