the part that you told me to order is incorrect. the existing ignitor is approximately 2 3/4" long and the part you suggested and I ordered is


5 1/4" long

I'm so sorry about that, is this the one you need ? for some reason it came up wrong on the site. Did you order it at repair clinic ? they will return it and send you the correct one. heres that link. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Oven-Igniter/74007498/949510?RCAID=1000065 sorry for the confusion.

the ceramic portion is approximately 2 3/4" long, the entire ignitor is approximately 4 3/4" long

they may have discontinued your exact igniter. although the one I showed you does work in your oven. What I would do is call repair clinic @ (800) 269-2609 and ask them to double check your igniter. they will get you the correct one. I'm so sorry for that.
