Gas oven not heating

Appliance: Model KENMORE GAS RANGE My Repair & Advice

Spark type oven igniter was not sparking. Since the broiler igniter and range top igniters were all functioning properly I knew the spark generator was good. I removed the bad part from the oven and I could not find the model number of the range, nor could I find a part number for the oven igniter. Internet research brought me to AppliancePartsPros. I was able to identify the part required by the detailed picture on the website. I ordered the part on Sunday and it was received on Tuesday. Installation of the new igniter was completed in less than 10 minutes and required the use of only a pair of needle nose pliers to re-connect the wiring and a 5/16" socket to secure the two screws. The oven fired right up and is again working great.
