I have removed bottom inside panel, but their is another panel. Is this the bruner cover? How do i remove? Their is a bar that the igniter is attached that is in the way.

Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
that is the burner cover and you have to remove the screws and set it out and the screws that holds the igniter screws into the side of the burner tube to remove it
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

okay. I have the burner panel off. The igniter screws are at an angle and unable to get to the screws with a screw driver. Also the wires to the igniter go straight down into bottom of oven. Do i have to cut the wires and connect or do i have to take something else off to get to the end of the wires?

get the new igniter before doing anything ,, some comes with wire nuts and you cut the wires and some dont ,, you will need a 1/4 ratchet and a 5/16 socket to remove it
