After watching your video instructing how to replace my GE JGSP28SEK4SS gas oven igniter, I accidentally cut off the wiring harness on the back of the oven instead of following your directions to splice the new igniter wires to the harness from the igniter being replaced. Can I just use basic wire connectors instead of wiring harnesses & does it matter which wires get connected to which? Hoping to avoid buying the wife a new range....
ANSWER Hello B.W.,
As a factory trained technician, I was trained to cut the factory connector off and use the ceramic wire nuts to connect the ignitor. This, as I was trained, eliminates a connection that can potentially become a problem. As far as where the wires attach, since this is an ac component, it is not polarized and the ignitor wires can be connected either way. The ignitor will not know the difference.
