Question about Maytag MGR4451ADS Stainless Steel Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Sealed Burner Two sealed burners on one side of Maytag Gas Range (model # CHG9800BAB) were not sparking. Replaced both burners with new ones. New burners do not spark when turned on. Sometimes they give off a couple of weak sparks. When burners are turned on, using a match, and knob is turned to the ?Start? position, the burners spark normally. They seem to spark while they are still hot. After they cool off, they do not spark.

Ralph, you need to look at the electrodes at the burners. They might be cracked or dirty. It's very hard to tell sometimes when they are cracked. The burner cap itself has to have a good ground and the wires going to the electrode should be on tight. You can eliminate the spark module by switching the right and left side burner wires at the module. Once you do that, if the right side works ok, but now the left doesn't, you can be pretty sure it's the module...Catriver..post back.

HOW TO CONVERT FROM NATURAL GAS T PROPANE


Their are 2 types of ranges. Ones with sealed burners and ones that do not have sealed burners. The sealed burner ranges must have a kit to replace the orifices. The none seal burner models are simply called crank down and flip models. That means you flip the screw on top of the regulator to where it reads LP. and then you tighten down the spuds on the top burners and the oven valve and then you adjust the air shutters.

Note: Some stoves with sealed burners cannot be converted to LP. The model number you posted is not a correct model number.

The front burner won't light.


I assume the other burners are lighting and the spark ignitor is working - if so try cleaning in and around the burner. a spill could have caused this problem. this should be a sealed burner model - if so make sure the burner top cap is on and seated correctly and or not gunked up with a spill. also check to make sure

Burner igniter won't click or work


This is an easy problem to fix. If your repair man is correct and it is the spark module and not a wire harness problem you can pick up a spark module as sears for about $37 and it only takes a couple of minutes to install. Just pull off the back panel and replace the module. This is a repair that anyone can do. I would recommend unplugging the unit before replacing.

Igniter Problem on One Burner


Peace,
ngafm here at your service,
You may have some food that spilled into the burner and it could be causing the gas not to fully flow out of that one burner.
Or you just have a bead igniter.
If you have sealed burners and the cap and burner where the gas comes out, is removable by hand without tools!
You may want to check the gas holes in the removable burner is clear and or clean them out if they are clogged.
How old is the range?
I hope that these measures will help you remedy the problem simply and easily!
Bless you,

Electric starter for Electric stove


I think you mean you have a gas range with electric ignition. When you turn a burner to light, all burners should spark. The most common problem is boil overs have happened on those two burners. Take the burner head off for sealed burner ranges and clean them out. For non sealed burners, the little holes toward the center side of the burners need to be cleaned. You don't have a model listed, so I can't be real specific.

My maytag gas range has sealed burners. They need to be adjusted because they dont ignite properly and they blow out when you turn it on high

Range mgr 5745 sealed burner


Yes the burner does twist off. You must turn it counter clockwise about 1/4 of a turn. These can be stuburn at times so what you might want to do is strike it sharply down with the heal of your hand first then give it a twist. this seems to help.
