Kenmore gas range oven igniter replacement installation issue
I have a Kenmore gas range, model # 66575024100. The surface burners light OK. The oven clicks a few times but usually doesn't light. When I hold a lighter to the oven igniter then the oven burner ignites OK. I'm trying to replace the oven igniter. I looked up the range model and found the manifold parts list (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-66575024100/0582/0124002/P0110221/00003?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=66575024100). It shows the oven igniter is item #16 on the schematic and the part number is 8054129 and there is only one option for the oven igniter. I received the part and went to install it and found the new oven igniter is longer than the old one. The old oven igniter is 4" long including a 90 degree elbow that goes down. There's a 1.5" gap behind the elbow and the back of the oven. The new oven igniter that I received is 7" long and straight, with a small metal tip and eyelet for a connection. Did I receive the correct part or not? How can I properly replace the oven igniter with the correct part? I tried to upload a picture showing the two oven igniter parts side-by-side using the "Add an image" button on the webpage containing this form but it didn't work. Please let me know how to provide the picture for review. Thanks, Kent

I apologize for the confusion regarding that igniter. The igniter part 8054129 is for the broil burner and will not fit the bake burner. I recommend that you return that part. The replacement bake igniter has been revised and it only comes as a kit assembly with a new bake burner. That assembly is part 8190618. You will need to replace the bake burner with that new bake igniter attached to it all at once. Here is a brief video that shows how to complete that repair: Range Bake Spark Electrode and Burner Replacement .
This should be the information that you need to complete that repair. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

I picked up part 8190618 at a local Sears. I completed installation in less than 5 minutes and the oven is now working. Thanks for the help!
