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.

Oven lights goes off ond on as it's reaching the pre-heat temperature. I can smell gas. The broiler works fine. I was wondering if it is getting enough gas to the oven.
Answer Hello Richard,
This sounds like a combination of an ignitor breaking down and possibly a bad burner and/or gas valve. The burner 74003960 can be removed and inspected. If it rattles when shaken, the inside of it has most likely rusted and will need to be replaced. If there are no signs of rust, the ignitor can be checked with a clamp on amp meter. It should read 3.2 to 3.6 amps. You can tell if it is pulling enough current without a clamp on amp meter by the color of the ignitor when energized. Red to orange is not hot enough. Yellow to white hot is sufficient. If the ignitor is hot enough, the gas valve 74006427 is going to be the culprit. Note that this is if the gas valve does not open which is evident by a strong gas smell.
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.
