My oven would not light

My Repair & Advice Featured Story
My Tappan Range, which I paid a grand total of $65.00 for, and have been using since Katrina, (Katrina in 2005 is how we measure time in South Mississippi.) I live in an old house, and I am old, too. Last winter was the coldest I can remember, and my husband (older than I and far more hard-headed) used the oven like a heater. I read all user's manuals, because I use only used stuff, I can download the manuals or read them online, and it clearly stated in there NOT to use the oven as a heater, but he did.
I make my own bread and do all my own fixes, from car windows and the roof and everything in between (my husband "supervises.")
So, when the oven failed to ignite, I knew what the problem was right away and was fortunate enough to find your website, which is so simple even my husband could use it (or maybe not, anyway...)
Your website was so easy to use, I identified the part I needed and got it so fast, I couldn't believe it when I saw that little box on my porch!
I took out the old igniter - two wires a screw and a nut - put in the new one, and it works like a charm. The whole project took approximately 30 minutes and while it was apart, I cleaned it really well, so now it's like I have a brand new stove!
I really love your website, it's in my bookmarks, and I will be back! I will also recommend your site to my neighbors. I'll probably end up doing their repairs when they find out that I can, but the savings from not calling a repairman are too much not to do it for them - they're even older than my husband and me!
Thanks for the part, your lovely website, and a special thanks to whomever set up your site and had the idea to provide parts to do-it-your-selfers.
