Is this something the "layman/woman" can install?
I see the part, removed the two bolts, not sure how to access the other end of the wires.
Answer You will need to unplug the stove and remove the back panel to gain access to the connector. On some models the wires are long enough to access from the inside. This is an easy repair.

My oven will not light but the top burners work. What part do I need to fix my oven?
Answer Hello Stacy,
Two things would be suspected off the bat. The safety valve (AP4097904) and the ignitor (AP4096256). The ignitor needs to glow white hot to open the gas valve. If the igniter isn't getting hot enough, replacing it should correct the issue. If the ignitor is getting white hot, the suspect is at that point, the safety valve.
Maytag stove\oven. Oven will not light. Bottom ignitor glows red hot. Top ignitor broke and cold. Will that bad top ignitor stop the gas from trying to start on the bottom burner? 7432P106-60 Model501A Norton 0014
Answer Hello Gene,
The top ignitor being faulty would not cause gas to not flow to bottom burner. You will want to check the amp draw on the lower ignitor. The amp draw should be between 3.2 and 3.6 amps. If not within range then the burner will not ignite and if it is within range then you would want to replace the oven safety valve.
