The wiring harness (plastic) where my oven igniter plugs into the oven wires must have been pushed too far into my oven when I last had it repaired, and it completely melted and turned to black crisp. I have scraped away the crispy stuff and am left with only the metal ends on each of the 2 white wires of the igniter and also the 2 yellow oven wires that they connect to.
I need to replace the igniter, but I notice that the part comes with a plastic wire harness that plugs into a corresponding wire harness on the oven wires. If I order the part, will I be able to connect it to the yellow wires even though they do not have the corresponding wire harness to plug the igniter's wire harness into?
If so, does it matter which igniter wire (white) gets plugged into which oven wire (yellow)?
Thank You and great instructional video!
With the issue of the connector melting, you could cut and splice the wires and it does not matter which wire that you would connect to each. When you connect the wires you will want to use ceramic wire nuts to connect.
