The oven will not stay on. I replaced the ignitor in september. The oven comes to temp but turns on and off.


That's normal operation. As the set temp is reached the burner turns off. When the temp falls below the set temp the burner turns on to compensate.

Dryer goes on, and will start burner but will not reach operating temp. Shuts burner off almost immediately. Will start burner again in cycle but then shuts off before it reaches operating temp.


What brand? You could have a clogged vent, or a stretched out belt, allowing too much heat inside the drum, triggering a safety switch.

Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,


This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

Viking oven only one burner will light


http://www.vikingrange.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m20127_f20254.pdf
Go to this web site. It has a manual on Viking ovens.
Usually, when the set temp is reached, the flame will cycle down to what is called "Minimum Blaze". This is to put heat into the unit at the rate that it leaves the unit. It helps to hold temp rather than cycle off and on. It cycles high when temp goes below set and then cycles down when set temp is reached.

Oven does not maintain temp.


It sounds like a thermocouple problem. While using the broiler, you gave the gas set to full and the thermostat is basically out of the loop.

Oven not working properly


I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.

Soultion not viable


Any other posts have been blocked, so I don't know what you have been told or tried. Has the oven temp been OK until just recently? The range has not been moved or converted Nat gas to LP etc. recently? If yes to Q1 and no to Q2, I'd replace the oven sensor ( WB21X5301) and then reset control to +- 00. Sensor is the pencil shaped thing sticking out the back of the oven. Note: Your temp test method is not accurate enough to calibrate oven exactly. I take average temp after a minimum 3 on / off cycles using a digital calibrating oven thermometer to get them within 10 degrees of set temp.

Maytag gas kitchen range/oven model# MGR575 ADW during preheat cycle in oven seems to keep trying to start left bank of burners over and over again. Gas can be heard flowing an ignition occurs and then...
