Re: problem with model #MGK5875QDW
Sometimes you can just get a bad ignitor. i would change it again. however you have to make sure you are changing it with the proper ignitor. also make sure the connection is not loose. if it has a plastic connector you may have to cut that connector off and splice the wires

so you're saying you have no bake,correct.you have a broil ignitor and a bake ignitor,the broil only has one setting and that's broil,all the other settings are for bake.i looked up the ignitor on the sears site,it costs 189 bucks.it cross refrences to part number 12400035 and this ignitor will work and it's 62 bucks,change out the bake ignitor and you should be fine,you can check it with a meter or turn on the oven and see if the ignitor even glows,it turns red when it's on but even if it glows this doesn't mean it's good,it opens the gas valve by amps,3.5 amps but i would start with the ignitor,it should fire up in around 40 seconds or shorter,if it's more than a minute the ignitor is no good.let me know what you find,unplug the oven before you change out the ignitor
I think you missed a letter at the beginning of your model number. (it is maybe a JGSP31GER ?) I would first test the broil, and see if that works. (I would guess that it does) Most likely the oven ignitor (part number WB13K5058 ) needs to be replaced. It is located under the floor of the oven right next to the burner. It is a round electric coil thing about 4 inches long. If you want to confirm that this part is bad before replacing it, (and the broiler works) you can take the ignitor off the broiler and install it in place of the oven ignitor. They are the same part number. Of course now your broiler and self clean will not work unless you replace the broiler's ignitor. This is not too difficult, maybe a 3 on a scale of 1 - 10. Should be a Fix-Ya for your slide in range!
You probably have a bad gas valve, part # WB21T10014, unless the new igniter is defective. If your broil works, you can prove this by temporarily hooking the broil igniter in the bake spot. Hope this helps!
oven never lights , but shows its on,? never heats past 100 deg?? soundslike a bad bake ignitor to me take down the model number and order a bake ignitor, installs on the bake burner, under the floor of oven, with just a few screws and 2 wires.
Sandwich, is it your bake or broil thats not working? You have two ignitors, one for bake and broil. One of them is your culprit. This is not a hard job. The post header says broil not working so the part number for that is WB13K0003. Bake ignitor is WB13K0004. To get at the bake ignitor you have to remove the oven bottom inside panel, remove the flame spreader (both easy). The click you are hearing is the board relay sending power to the ignitor. The ignitor has to draw so many amps to open the gas valve. The oven is pilotless. Catriver..post back.
eerb, most likley your ignitor failed. When you turn the oven on to bake you should hear a relay click on the electronic control (clock). You can do a couple of things here. If you have a ohmmeter the ignitor should ohm out at between 50 and 150 ohms. You can physically swap out the bake and broil ignitors to see if the ignitor comes on in bake. Or you can swap the bake and broil wires on the board. They should be marked BA and BR. This way when you turn on bake, the broil ignitor should glow and verify you have power going to it. Carefull when testing, be sure to kill power to the range before any changes. Catriver...post back
