Replacing ignitor on GE profile range jgb920sec4ss

6 posts in this topic

I have the new ignitor, I have removed the bottom of the oven and can see the ignitor on the burner tube, but the wires just go into the bottom of the range. I turned it around, but can see no way to access the connection. Do I just cut them off and splice on the new one? I don't want to do that if there is a better way. Any help will be appreciated. Here is a picture of what I am dealing with.

Does this mean you have removed the pots drawer at the bottom?  That usually give clear access to the wires.  Splicing in the new ignitor is typical and most replacement ignitor kits come with ceramic wire nuts for the purpose.  The replacement ignitor kit for this range does come with ceramic wire nuts.

I didn't remove the pots drawer. I'll check that out. I have the wire nuts that came with the ignitor, I didn't want to Jury rig if I didn't need to.

 

Thanks,

I know its a gas stove but do remember to unplug it. That ignitor does rely on electricity to heat it up and sometimes you can forget that.

 

I know this from personal experience....heh
