Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Range top caught fire

The igniter had started on it's own.  I went to check it out and noticed that the dial was sparking as well.  I lifted up the dial and saw the spark.  The spark then ignited a 3-4 inch flame out of the hole.  The oven is less than 3 years old.

Hello vyoshikawa,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, the igniter had started by itself!


Please , do not play around with this issue!
You can try to pull the plug on this. And use service to diagnose this. We do not want you or your family to have a fire in the middle of the night.
If you need to use the range till they come and diagnose it, pull the plug when you are finished.
Pulling the plug for 5 minutes will perhaps reset the system, BUT this is no replacement for getting service in this case!
Let me know what happens.
Please remember to leave a rating!
Huuum,

The gas range spark igniter does not work. I have a new part. How do I access the range top to replace it?


The whole top of the stove lifts off. You need to pull it out from the wall, unhook the gas, loosen and remove any screws that are on the back that hold the back to the top section. Open the stove doors and look up from the bottom to see if there are screws holding the top down, take those out and lift the top off. You can then access all the parts for the burners.

The gas is connected on the rear side of the stove but the pilot light is not lit, nor will it light. trying to trouble shoot the problem before deciding to purchase a new oven/range. Also, I remember...


You may have a pilotless ignition.Check around door frames for model #plate.
Also , open broiler door ,turn on oven and look inside . If you see an orange glow appear after awhile, that is the electronic igniter and you have an electronic ignition(no pilot).In this case the top burners use a spark ignition system.If you don,t hear clicking when you turn on a burner your ignition module might be bad.
Easily fixed though.

Gas top range ignition stuck on sparking


Hi,

The switches that are causing the sparking are located under the knobs that you turn the burners on. Lift the knobs off and you should be able to see them.

If you have just cleaned the range the switches may have gotten wet. You can try to dry them out with the hair dryer, or just let them sit for 24 hours with the range unplugged. If they continue to spark after that you will need the switches replaced.

Electric spark starter on one of the burner runs continuously


check the spark head on that particular burner first for dirt,they all need to be clean to recognize the flame after ignition and sense the flame to shut off the sparker module after ignition,and if not you will need to replace the spark module that fires the sparkers itself,but try cleaning sparkers and underneath where the wires connect to the sparkers first for contamination,its cheaper than starting to replace parts

Range top ignighters sparking


One of your "switches" to your burners is shorting causing unit to spark when in the off mode, or, you may have a bug problem, bugs have made their way into the spark module.

1: if no bug problem, disconnect stove from electricity, lift top up, remove all of the single connections to each switch to top burners(make sure they don't have any bare wires touching the frame), then plug unit back in, if still sparking then replace module.

Wolf Range r366 - How do I replace the igniter


I have a Wolf Gas Range and initially my igniter incessantly sparked. I noticed that the igniter is cracked. Do I need to replace it and if so how do I replace it? The electrical wire to the igniter became disconnected; should sticking it back into the igniter cause it to work?

Igniter keeps firing


The problem resolved on its own. I'm guessing some moisture from my cleaning was the culprit...when the moisture dried the igniter stopped sparking.

Spark igniters on the burners fire continuously


Had The same problem. I removed the top of the control panel to find out that one of the ignitor switches had turned when I replaced the four large plasic nuts on the control panel. Make sure the switches (block) are aligned, and kept aligned, when re-installing the top of the control panel. Startwreck.
