Question about Maytag MGR5751AD Gas Kitchen Range

Oven takes a loooong time to reach target temperature

The oven used to reach it's target temperature in a few minutes, now it takes ages. I can smell gas faintly when I open the oven door but have been unable to remove the bottom panel to investigate the condition of the burners. (it is a convection oven so the manual says the bottom can not be removed). Any ideas?

Thanks

    Sounds good aborcass, thanks for suggestion. I removed the bottom panel and turned the oven on, the glow block lit up plenty but the gas was a long time coming. Once the burner ignited, the oven reached target temp in seconds. I called Maytag and was told that the valve might be sticky or that the glow block might not be pulling enough juice to trigger the gas valve to open. I will replace glow block first and see if that does it. Thanks much.

Why hasn't the oven reached the set temp when the buzzer sounds indicating desired temp has been reached?


What are you using to measure the temperature of the oven? If you using a typical round oven thermometer, the reason is that your thermometer response is slow. It takes about 20 minutes for those thermometers to reach and display the actual temperature, and your oven is probably reaching it's set temperature in about 10 minutes. You really need an electronic thermometer or at least one of those liquid thermometers which you can sometimes find at Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware stores.

One must preheat the oven to the desired baking temperature. If the oven is turned on and the food immediately put in to bake, it will take longer to bake the first batch than the second and subsequent batches, because the oven need a few minutes to heat up.

In other words, the oven isn't at 350 degrees the instant you turn it on. It takes about 15 minutes for the oven to reach 350 degrees. I hope this helps.

Oven will not reach desired temperature and slight gas smell


Just had same problem it was nice it waited until christmas dinner, all i did to resolve the problem was switch the upper broiler igniter with the lower one for the oven. I tuned on the oven & it fired right up i never use the broiler on my oven so itll buy me some time. So if you can get the broiler to light try that but i did have the same low temp. & the smell of gas. Good Luck

Oven slow to ignite and come to temperature.


Change the igniter.

As they age, they often times will no longer draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open. Increasing the line voltage would help, but that's a little impractical.

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

Preheating Oven


Cold Stove, you may not be able to. The issue here is that oven manufactures put on their units a fast preheat. However it isn't possible to preheat an oven for 7 to 9 minutes and bake short time bake items properly. Also the oven sensor will respond faster than the absorbation rate of the sheet metal in the oven liner. To preheat an oven properly takes 15 to 20 minutes before putting in the food. I see this will a lot of current ovens. Sounds like a normal format of the control.
