Repairing procedure

Tools Needed:

  • Screwdriver (Phillips or flat-head as required)
  • Nut driver or socket wrench
  • New oven burner igniter

Safety Precautions:

  • Turn Off the Gas Supply: Before starting, ensure the gas supply to the oven is turned off to prevent leaks and potential hazards.
  • Disconnect Power: Unplug the oven from the electrical outlet to avoid any electrical risks.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  • Prepare the Work Area: Open the oven door and remove the oven racks to give yourself more room to work.
  • Remove the Oven Bottom: Locate the screws or fasteners that hold the oven bottom panel in place. These are typically found at the back of the oven floor. Use a screwdriver or nut driver to remove them, then lift out the panel and set it aside.
  • Remove the Heat Deflector: The heat deflector, if present, is located at the bottom of the oven and covers the burner assembly. It’s usually secured by a couple of screws. Remove these screws and the deflector to expose the burner and igniter.
  • Locate the Igniter: The igniter is attached to the burner assembly. It’s usually held in place by two screws and connected to the oven’s electrical system by a plug or wire nuts.
  • Disconnect the Igniter: Carefully disconnect the igniter from the electrical supply. If it’s connected with wire nuts, unscrew them and gently pull the wires apart. If it’s a plug, disconnect it by gently pulling it apart from its socket.
  • Remove the Igniter: Unscrew the mounting screws that hold the igniter to the burner assembly. Carefully remove the old igniter, ensuring not to damage any wires or components.
  • Install the New Igniter: Position the new igniter where the old one was located. Secure it with the mounting screws you previously removed. Be careful not to touch the igniter’s element, as oils from your skin can shorten its lifespan.
  • Reconnect the Electrical Supply: Reconnect the igniter to the electrical supply, either by reconnecting the plug or using wire nuts to secure the wires together.
  • Reassemble the Oven: Replace the heat deflector and secure it with the screws you removed earlier. Then, place the oven bottom back and secure it with its screws or fasteners. Finally, replace the oven racks.
  • Test the Oven: Reconnect the power and gas supply to the oven. Turn the oven on to ensure the new igniter is working correctly. The oven should heat up if everything is installed correctly.

Additional Tips:

  • Handle the new igniter carefully, as the ceramic part can be very fragile.
  • Ensure all connections are secure and correctly made to prevent gas leaks or electrical issues.
  • If you’re not confident in performing this replacement yourself, it’s wise to call a professional technician.
Replacing an oven burner igniter can seem daunting, but with the right tools and safety precautions, it’s a manageable DIY project. However, always prioritize safety and consult a professional if you’re unsure about any steps.
