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 broiler and self cleaning works but when I do oven it does not... I need to know if I am ordering the correct part. Should I be ordering the igniter? If so, which one
Answer Sandra, Yes, you most likely have a failed oven bake igniter, part number 74007498. You will need to remove power to the range, remove the oven door, remove the oven bottom panel to access the igniter and burner. Then remove the metal flame spreader and remove and replace the igniter.
The broiler for my Maytag gas range does not work at all. However, the oven works perfectly. I have ordered the oven ignitor part, which seems to be the same regardless if the oven or broiler ignitors are broken. My question is: Where and how do I install the broiler ignitor? I watched the video for the oven ignitor but do not see any information regarding the broiler ignitor replacement. Thank you
Answer Hello Christiane,
Open the bake compartment and look up in the ceiling of the bake compartment. The broil element is up there and you should see a screw near the front that retains this burner in position. When you remove the burner, the ignitor will come out with it. When you get this loose and unplug the connector, you can remove the two screws and install the new ignitor 74007498. You then re-assemble the unit in the reverse order.
