You don't say what brand and model you have, but the process is pretty much the same for all ovens. You need to remove the oven racks, then remove the oven bottom. There's a flame spreader that comes off, and you'll find the igniter is mounted on a bracket underneath. Disconnect the old igniter, pop in the new one and reconnect it, reassemble the oven and you're done. A few details such as where screws are located, the kind of igniter and its connections and such depend on the oven. This site as well as many others has helpful information, as well as selling replacement parts. It's not complicated, and easy to do yourself. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Oven will not heat up. The Oven igniter glows but the gas pipe does not light up. The broiler gas pipe at the top of the oven lights and so does the stove top burners. Do I need to replace the Flat...


Hello,
Microwaves use a magnetron to emit the waves, they make a very characteristic (and loud) humming sound when they 'kick-in.' If it is not making this sound that's your problem. It is not a user-replaceable part so please take it to an appliance repair shop, or purchase a replacement (which will probably be the same or lesser cost than repair unfortunately.)

I hope that this will help in solving the problem....
