My Kitchenaid gas oven doesnt always light. The broiler will

This answer was rated:

My Kitchenaid gas oven doesn't always light. The broiler will light everytime but not the oven settings. Both the regular and convection settings will keep making 4 click noises but not the pop you hear when it actually lights.
If you're very patient it will eventually light but it is not dependable.
Model # XXXXX
you probably have a bad oven igniter in this, Part 784603these sometimes get weak or get a crack in the ceramic and dont lite all the time, you can get this @ for around $24.00. this should take care of the problem, thanks , Bryan

How easy is this to replace? Does it require a pro to do the work?
