Question about Maytag PGR5710 Performa Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Matag gas oven won't or is slow in comming up to temperature.

Model CHG9830BAE oven is slow or will not come up to temperature. there is at times the smell of gas when the oven is started. the broiler seems to work ok. the ignition element for the oven glows when turned on but the gas volume to burner seems very low.
is it possible the igniter is not producing enough current to fully open the gas safety valve and therefore producing the problems mentioned?

    My oven will not light for a very long time. I see the element lit, but the burner does not. The stove is only 7 years old and that sure is not very good for a stove to not last longer then that..

Hello and welcome to FixYA!
You are 100% correct in your suspicion that the oven ignitor is at fault. If you want to know "for certain" you can check that ignitor in circuit using an amprobe and looking for at least 2.9 amps, however I would say all you need do is replace that ignitor and your oven should return to proper operation. The gas smell is a result of an ignitor being on the "ragged edge" of being able to open the warp switch in the gas valve. Instead of opening up, it is "burping" the valve enough for you to smell gas. Your part number is a
12400035 and sells for around $50 or so, depending where you buy it.
Thanks for using the FixYA! service!

Natural gas oven won't get hot and stay hot


Most likely the oven igniter has failed. Turn the unit to bake, the gas should come on within 35 to 60 seconds (at the most). If not, replace the bake igniter. DO NOT TOUCH THE BLACK PORTION OF THE IGNITER with your fingers, this is true for old and new.

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

Installed a matag gas stove model # CRG9700BAL. burners work but push button to turn oven on and an error comes up F3. How do we fix this


Hi,

F3 is a sensor error. The sensor is in the oven it is a metal rod coming in on the back wall of the oven, it is a little smaller than a pencil. It is either gone bad or came unplugged. It runs up the back to the electronic clock, there should be two wires on it and 2 connections to check.

If you take the back off the stove be sure to unplug the power cord first.

I have a frigidaire gas stove model #FGF337AWJ.


I went through that once and believe it or not it was the ignitor. Instead of a thermocouple these new ovens use the amount of current going through the ignitor to prove the flame. Seems like after it gets ot a certain temperature the amps drop off enough to cut out the flame and then it will try to recycle. If it is not that it would be the thermostat but they very seldom go bad. I would reolace the ignitor first I think it will solve your problem.

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.

Fridgidaire Gas Oven/Stove #VF01816502


This is your igniting bar it regulates the gas and the start up of the oven. It is at the bottom of the inside of your stove and if you take off the cover you will see it. It is rectangular and when you try to start up the oven it glows orange. Change this and it should work fine.
