Viking oven broiler will not ignite


Your gas valve would be my first guess. Is this broiler (and bake ) lit with a glow coil or spark probe that goes (goes click, click, to light)??
If spark probe, you will have to replace either gas valve or spark board.
If glow bar lights the broil but does not glow, then replace glow coil.

I have a Maytag gas stove model MGR5730BDW. The oven won't light. The broiler works just fine. The bottom ingiter glows orange and gets hot but the burner won't light.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Just because the ignitor glows does not mean its good..switch the two around and see if the oven comes on. They still glow even when they start to go bad.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I have changed the glow bar and still the Broiler does not light and the gas smell is overbearing. Is there a pilot somewhere for this broiler?


There is no pilot, if you have a glowplug/bar.
Your gas valve should not open if the glowplug is not orange to white hot. Either you have a defective gas manifold on the oven or your heat sensor for the glowplug is shorted closed. Replace the sensor first, most likely candidate.

Gas Oven - no flame at Bake Baffle - Glow Bar glows fine


If the glow bar is working (glowing) it is the gas valve. BUT, the glow bar can also actually glow and still not be working 100% and letting enough current through to the valve. You could swap an identical valve out to check it, if you don't have a meter. It's more than likely the valve though.

Broiler won't light


Check the glow bar ignitor.
Is it glowing?
If not replace it.
If so, replace it anyway.
They can glow and still be bad.

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming


The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.
