How do I replace a stove top ignitor on my whirlpool range?Model no. SF325PEG, ignitor part no is(NNN) NNN-NNNNI got the old one out by tapping on it from aboveIt seems like it needs to be cemented in?
Brand: WhirlpoolType of Appliance: Oven & RangeWhat have you tried so far?: Removed it from burner late and disconnected it from the rear
Hello I'm Larry and I will use all my training and knowledge of 40 years to help you with your Problem today ,, thanksyou need to remove the burners, remove the screws under each, raise the top and then you can swap out the igniter
What you described I already did. I can set the new igniter in the hole
But how do I get it to stay in position?
there should be a clip that holds it up and most likely when you knocked the old one loose it came off and laying somewhere in the base of the top
is this the one you have
No. You can see the one I have at Whirlpool PartsSelect. It is part no.(NNN) NNN-NNNN It has a small metal collar that is press-fit on the ceramic tube and would be flush with the bottom side of the burner plate once installed. i checked the burner next to the one I'm working on and there is no clip. The other three ignitors all look cemented in.
the one i just showed you is that one made for your range if you gave me the correct model number and its different than the one from partsselect ,, recheck the model number from your range and send it to me because the one you have gotten may not work for you
In case I was incorrect, My Range Model no. is SF325PEGW0
The parts select site provides the following part number PS388639 for this range.
Here is a link to the item
ok you have the right one and you have to drop down the burner and it slides down into the hole and then hooks up so when you but the top back down then the igniter will be sticking up so it will be into place, look at number 3 in this picture
Yes, I see that. If I remove the burner, turn it over, it will slide into position just fine but there is nothing to hold it there. The question is... How do I make it stay in place?
it will stay in place when you lower the top and run the screws back in

I took a closer look at a burner with the igniter in place and I see it now. Thanks.
