Question about Maytag MER5770 Electric Kitchen Range
We had to replace the entire glass top on out oven. We took it apart & replaced it fine, excest now the surface indicator light doesn't work. The little light bulbs glow very faint. The connections all look good. Do you know how to fix this? Thanks for your time.

you need to remove the door. On your model just grab the door and lift and it should lift right off. Then remove the screws that run along the bottom of the door. Remove the bottom trim and the glass should slide down and off. Reverse to assemble

You probably need to replace the the ignitor. Even though it glows red does not mean that it is working propery. If it does not draw at least 3.5 amps the gas valve will not open. This can be check with a amp meter.

This will sound crazy but I had to work through it on my own stove a few years ago. The ignitor (glow tube) was getting hot but the oven would not owrk. When investigating the problem I found that the gas valve will only open when the ignitor pulls a specific amperage or draw of current. As the ignitor ages it pu;;s a reduced draw of current. This causes you to be fooled by the glow nut no gas. Replace your ignitor and your oven will begin to work again!
You can get ignitors easily online by doing a search for "appliance parts" and then entering the model number of your stove. Look for ignitor and you will be good to go. Also check out a few different sites as the prices of the parts can vary quite a bit.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your help. I was looking for a thermocouple but that must be old school. I couldn't figure out what told gas to flow."
