Caloric Oven RSD 307-UK - how to replace igniter

6 posts in this topic

We had the sears guy out for our dying oven, installed 17 years ago.  it would glow but not fire up.  he told us it was the igniter.  He ordered the part and would have to come back to instal but said it was easy and I could do it myself.   It does look easy enough, but I can't quite tell how I access the electrical to install.  Before I take apart the whole oven I wanted to know if I access the ignighter by removing the whole burner assembly or if you get to it from the back.  I can certainly remove the 20 or so screws but would like to not remove unecessary parts if needed.

I cannot see your oven but the igniter is mounted to the side of the burner.  If you can access this burner from the broiler area or by removing the oven bottom and spreader plate,  & you will be looking at the right area.  Usually 2 screws hold the igniter to the burner.  If the wires plug in, good, if not splice them in with ceramic wire nuts.

Thank you.  Yes it is the bottom burner. in the back left of the oven.  The igniter shield appears to be attached to the burner by 2 or 3 screws.  The black part/coil is under this sheild but the body of the ignighter disappears into the back of the oven where the wires will connect.  So if i take off the shield I will be able to grasp the igniter but I don't see how i get to where the wires will plug in.  Here.  I took pictures

Undo the screws and pull the ignitor forward and see if the wires will not pull out enough to change this out.  If they will pull enough to cut and splice with ceramic wire nuts will make it easier than having to remove the back to access the plug in for the igniter.  Be sure the power is off to the oven before doing this please.
