Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP79 Gas Kitchen Range
For women from a woman's point of view: Most if not all the screws were hex head 1/4. Have appropriate tools. A socket set will work. I like my little cordless screw driver. You will also need wire strippers and two wire nuts, they say ceramic wire nuts and electrical tape. It is also a good idea to have a someone else there for safety sake. I tipped the stove back.
Take everything our of the oven. Take big screws out at the back bottom of oven. Lift bottom of oven and push toward the back of oven. (There is a lip at the front that oven floor slides unde). Be careful as there are sharp edges all over the place once this oven bottom is off. Next unscrew the screw at the front middle of oven that holds the long burner in place. Next pull the stove drawer out and set aside. Pull stove out just enought to put large juice cans under the front legs. Way at the back you will see where the burner comes down to the gas line. There are two screws holding it to the back of the stove, remove them. Next find the two wires that come from the igniter. Unplug them. Lift out the burner. Unscrew the two screws that hold the igniter on to the burner. Carefully put the new ignitor on the burner. If the new ends do not match the old ones or if they are shorter, cut the old ones off near the old ignitor. Cut the ends off the new ignitor as far from the ignitor as you can. Clean the ends off so that about a half inch of wire is bare. Put the old ends on the new wire so that you can plug them in. Hold the two like wires so that both bare wires are parallel and screw on the wire nut. Lay it parallel to one wire and wrap electrical tape around it so that it will not pull loose. Plug in the way it was originally. Put everything back together opposite of the way you took it apart.

Tut, probably the easiest way is to remove the burner. Remove the two screws on the bracket on the back wall holding the burner assy. Remove the front screw on the burner. You might have to remove the bottom drawer to get at the bracket. The burner will lift up. You don't have to remove it completely, just enough where you can get at the screws. GE made this a real pain. Catriver..

Actually, the easiest way is to unscrew it from the bottom. Remove the bottom drawer (where you store pot lids and/or broiler pan). Lift the drawer up when it is almost slid the entire way out in order to get it over the hump that prevents you from accidently removing it.
You will see four bolts, two at each of the front corners, holding the bottom plate onto the stove. All bolts are 1/4 inch. You only have to remove the two which are pointing exactly straight up (the other two are at an angle). When you remove these, the bottom plate will fall off, so be careful. The back of the plate rests on a lip (remember this when you put it back on).
There is a HUGE opening directly below the igniter which you can use to remove the two bolts holding the igniter in place.
It really is very easy. This part fails enough that they had to make it easy to remove, but not obviously so (they have to throw a bone to the repair techs you know).

After removing the bottom tray, simply remove the screw holding down the burner nearest the oven door. Gently push the burner to the right. There will be enough clearance to get to those two 1/4" screws in question (holding the ignitor in).

The oven burner is lighted by electric ignition. To light the burner, press the pad for the desired electrical function and press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the desired temperature is displayed. The burner should ignite within 60 seconds. After the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven burner cycles off completely, then on with a full flame to keep the oven temperature controlled.

Both the new and OLD units use a glow bar for lighting the burner. Most likely your Glow Bar has failed: GE PN: WB2X9154
The Glow Bar is item 316 this link:
