    Lower oven would not heat up.
    Step 1: Unscrew wingnut on the bottom plates and remove the two plates.

    Step 2: Unscrew back left protective plate over the gas inlet. Next remove the screw holding down the gas tube. (Note the orientation of the bake igniter wire for reassembly) Gently slid the tube to the right to disconnect.

    Step 3: Remove the two screws holding the bake igniter.
    Note: I screw all the screws back in there holes so I do not mix them up or loss them.

    Step 4: Remove the back cover of the oven. Start by removing the two screws just above the gas value. Next the two screws on the bottom left. Next remove the side screws. Don't forget to disconnet the emergence shut-off line from the gas value. Now remove back cover.

    Step 5: Disconnet the bake igniter connector. (Have a buddy lightly pull the old bake igniter in the oven a little bit to find the correct wire in the back). Tie a string to the old bake igniter and pull through into the oven. Retie the string into the new bake igniter and pull bake through to the bake. Reconnect to the wire you originally removed it from.

    Step 6: Starting backwards from Step 4, reconnect the emergency disconnect lin E into the gas valve. Reinstall the back cover.

    Step 7: Reinsert the gas tube back into the gas inlet. Make sure you guide the bake igniter wire around the back of the gas tube as noted in step 2. Screw tube back in place. Reinstall protective plate over gas inlet. Now, very carefully (igniter is very fragile), reinstall the two screws to fasten the bake igniter onto the gas tube.

    Step 8: Reinstall the two cover plates from Step 1 and install the wingnut.

    Fingers crossed, try starting the oven. It should fire up. Good luck with your repair.

    Top oven would not ignite.
    Removed cover over burner via wing nut, removed burner assembly via 2 screws, loosened igniter via 2 screws, loosened rear cover via 6 screw/nuts and disconnected igniter electrical connection and then pulled out old igniter. Replaced new igniter via reverse method. Was very easy repair for a reasonable guess diagnosis. Just happy it wasn't a "controls" problem.

    oven would not start
    I took out the bottom of the stove, then the burner along with the igniter. Took off the back and unplugged the old one and plugged in the new one and put everything back in place, It was very simple to do.
