BTW how old is the stove? You may want to replace both ignitors while you are at it.
Thanks, Bill!! The stove is about 5/6 years old but we rarely use the broiler.

I also found that shopping the internet for parts saved me about 50%, small time appliance stores are notoriously high priced so save yourself a bunch of dough.
Ceramic wire nuts... Noted! Thanks!
An online retailer has the part for about $40 whereas a local retailer has it for $90+. I don't know why but I'm hesitant on buying the part on-line since its significantly cheaper. Are the on-line parts comparable?
