I've done a few hundred of these repairs. Oven won't light. Needs new oven igniter.
However after I take the two back hand screws out, this one need to remove the convection fan cover, then lift panel out. Not with this dude. I spent and hour tryi g to get it off. The clips in the front will not work with me. Hope there is help?
Thanks for any advice.

Chassis and liner front might be flexed.  Try pulling unit from cabinet to be sure it's level then try removing liner floor.

I had one of these once that I had to replace the oven floor because it was rotted thru from acidic spills.

 

Nothing I did would make it come out in a normal manner, since it was already bad and was going to be replaced, I bent it and used tin snips to cut it out.

 

New one went right in if I remember correctly, so I don't know what was making it  so difficult to remove.

 

I know this doesn't really help you but just letting you know your not the only one to ever have a problem with one of those.

Thanks for your reply. Cutting it out must have been tough. That's the only solution I can think of.
I actually had the same oven call that day and took a video of me removing the floor (very easily of course) and emailed it to the customer so they didn't think I was incompetent!

Actually it wasn't that tough to cut it since large holes were already rotted thru which gave me a place to start cutting with tin snips and the metal wasn't all that tough to cut through.

Update: were going to cut the floor up to remove it. I've ordered a new floor.
