Maytag oven doesn't light, broiler comes on instead

I have a Maytag MGR4452BDW gas range that the oven does not light any longer. When we push the Bake button on the control pad, the broiler comes on each time instead. Is this a problem with the control pad? Thanks!

On some gas ranges, the broiler comes on with the bake selection during warm up. This allows the oven to preheat much quicker. More than likely, the control pad is functioning properly and your bake igniter is bad. Igniters become weak with age and eventually go bad. Since the bake feature is used more frequently, it typically goes bad more often. The following link provides you with some guidance on oven igniters:

Remember: just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If they become weak, they will not draw the required current potential to open the gas safety valve.

If you determine the igniter to be bad, you can obtain a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and go to the "Gas Controls" heading and look for item number 14 (part number 74007498). If the igniter plug does not match the plug you have on your oven, the instructions will guide you to cut the wires and splice the ends together. There should be ceramic wire lugs that come with the igniter kit. CAUTION: Make sure you only use the ceramic (heat resistant) lugs that come with the kit. Splicing with regular wire lugs or electrical tape will melt due to the heat. Additionally, make sure you UNPLUG the appliance before replacing the igniter. Live voltage potentials are still present with the range shut off.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Model# mgr4452bdw The surface burners light but the oven and broiler do not. when i set it for 350 degrees it stops at 100 degrees and no flames or heat. Do you know what the problem could be? Thanks...


Hi,
You will need and ignitor to correct this problem, part number 12400035, or click on the link below.
Ignitor
When they become weak, the can extend cooking time and sometimes create a gas odor. One number problem is your unit is over 3 plus years and you do alot of baking. Normally is a 20 min replace job.
Good luck

I have a maytag MGR4452bdw gas oven. it will not heat up above 350 degs, what's wrong? please advise


first thing to check is the ignitor,remove the racks and remove the bottom inside floor,if anything else is there remove it so you can see the ignitor,set the oven to 350,if the ignitor glows but doesn.t ignite the flame in 40 seconds change out the ignitor,the reason why i say this is if the sensor or anything else would bring up an error code.hope this helps.

Our Maytag oven, the ignitor works, but no gas comes through. The broiler works and the top range works. So what can be the problem?


On a silicone carbide ignition system, the design is simple. The ignitor glows and changes the resistance in the circuit. When the resistance is right the gas valve will open and you will have ignition. So what goes wrong? The ignitor gets weak and no longer opens the safety valve. Here is a video which show how it works:

Slow to heat up


Most likely your ignitor is going bad. This is the part that glows before the gas comes on. It has to draw the proper amperage to allow the gas in the oven to light and burn. Some ignitors glow and look good but are not drawing enough amperage for the gas valve to open, with the problem you are describing.

Very fragile part, easy to break,
good luck.....
