Question about Maytag MGR6775A Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Right rear ignitor will not stop even when turned off.

There appears to be a crack in the module underneath the burner knob. The only way to quiet the igniter is to unplug the main power cord. I was looking for a quick way to disconnect that one igniter until a replacement can be obtained. I can't locate a procedure for exposing the wiring and didn't want to disassemble more than I had to. I can only find the Owner's Manual which is no help.

SOURCE: ignitor maytag MGR6772BDS gas stove

One of your switches on the gas controls is bad. You'll have to remove the lines from the switches to the ignitor one at a time to figure out which. With the power off, lift the top of the range to expose the controls. There are connectors for the power at each control. After removing one line, turn the power back on and see the result. You'll know when you've hit the right switch. Then, replace it.

SOURCE: Bake element doesnt work everything else does

Control unit is probably the problem, You should check your Breaker to make sure it didnt trip outside of that you can check voltage to the element with the oven set to bake, if you dont have votage to element then it would most likely be the board. I just checked the wiring diagram for this unit and there is an over limit switch which is a long shot but worth checking. My bet is on the board. There are 2 listings for the part number so if you check on parts make sure you have full model # serial # AND series #(should be a 2 digit number like 10 or something)

SOURCE: Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking

Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

I have a Viking vgic365-4G gas range. I recently replaced the spark module, the ignitors for the oven and the griddle, and the spark ignitors for the burners. The problem I am having is only one of the...


Hello,

their is one of two things causing that,

1) the switch that supplies power to the spark module when the burner is turned on is bad...its located on the shaft of the burner valve thier is one switch for each knob so counting the oven and the burners their is 5 (the oven is different from the surface burners) to check those switches what needs to be done is remove the knobs then the face panel so ya can get to the knobs.

No is where is gets a bit complcated if ya dont follow all procedures....the knob must turned on to check so gas will be flowing and ya must light the gas using a match or raw gas will eneter the kitchen...or if possible temporarly turn off gas supply to the unit.also POWER MUST BE DISCONNECTED and then with power off and the burner lit manually once turned on ya would need to check each switch to have continuity,if any of the switches does not have continuity when measured with a ohm meter that switch will be bad


2) the igniter is cracked so power is coming from spark module yet since its cracked power is jumping out before it gets the where it lights the burners.

Two of my burners are clicking even when the stove is off. what should I do?


There is a switch that slides onto the shaft for each burner. When you turn the knob to a certain area it completes the circuit to the ignitor module. It sounds like you have a shorted switch. Unfortunately with most 'cooktops', these are not easy to get to.

It's also strange that only 2 are igniting, usually one module runs all the ignitors. When you turn one of the non-problem burners on, does it click when it supposed to and stop when it's supposed to?

The ignitors running constantly is annoying and may damage the module, but should not be dangerous unless you have other issues, ie., fuel leaks.

If you have access to basic hand tools and a multimeter I can walk you through the diagnosis.

I can't get the electric ignition to stop clicking. I'm not sure this is the right model, but it looked the closest to my cooktop


Hi- most likely the spark module is bad. Sometimes a burner swith gets stuck as well. Unplug the unit, the plug should be inside the cabinet. Take off the knobs and see if you see any obstructions and see if the knob posts move freely in and out (push to turn). Probably need to get a Tech out to look at it. If it is clicking even when the burners are off you can just leave it unplugged and light with a match to use it. If it is only clicking when you have the burners on check to be sure all the burner bases and caps are assembled correctly and seated, sometimes the electrode will continue to click if the burners are assembled wrong or are wet. Hope this helps a little. Good Luck.

My whirlpool range ss630per-1 burners will ignite except of front right which give no ignitor sound at all, but the Rear Right works fine. any solutions?


Each burner control knob has a built-in switch that controls the igniter. It appears the front right burner switch in the knob is possibly defective. They are replaceable but it requires dis-assembly of the range front. Are all the igniters in a sequence? Have you tried turning the front right burner on while another burner has the igniter on. This may let you ignite the burner automatically. When you have another burner igniter clicking try turning on that burner. If the range has rectification igniters that will not work.

Ignitors constantly click.


Hi, it is possible, that your spark module, need replacing, but it could be other things too. could be faulty ignitor switch, whenever you turn knob to light burner, it activate switch, remove burners, lift top off, you will see, that each knob are connected to valve with two, or some model has one wire, connected to it, check for any breaks in wiring harness, could be something simple like bruise wire touching cooker body, etc. also turn knob and light any burner, turn knob clockwise all the way, let burner light, then gently turn knob counter clockwise and listen to hear if clicking stop, if clicking continue until burner goes off, it's possible you'll need to replace spark module, sometimes, they get short circuited, takes about 30 mins to replace module, $90/ hr. oouch, big companies, does that price, includes, price of module? can you get a regular repair guy, ask a friend they might know one. good luck.

Igniter wont stop firing


Make sure that the small burner holes near the ignitor are not clogged. if no flame is visibly touching the ignitor, then the ignitor will not sense that it is lit. The fact that it seems to take longer to light than normal leads me to this as well.

If there is good flame contact with the ignitor, then sometimes it will not sense the flame if you had a boilover and water got down between the wire and the ceramic body. This can happen with oil as well. Removing the ignitor (carefully! if you crack it, it will "leak" its spark and not work properly), cleaning it and letting it thoroughly dry will help. Most of the time I just leave the burner on and the clicking will stop after about a minute when the whole assembly heats up and drys out.

If all that checks out, then the ignition module is bad. Mine went out after 6 years use. They are available online (I bought mine from a Viking parts store...surprisingly). Replacement is fairly easy. Turn off the power to the stove. Remove the screws that hold the burner knob/oven knob faceplate to the range (Two are only accessed by opening the oven door, the rest are tucked up at the top of the faceplate and under the top-front lip of the range) The ignition module has many wires attached and they are easy to remove. MAKE SURE YOU ATTATCH THE WIRES TO THE NEW MODULE IN EXACTLY THE SAME SPOTS ON THE NEW IGNITOR. That includes the same ignitor wires that are all colored the same.

I absolutely love my Bluestar. I wish my convection fan was quieter, but the power of the range is simply awesome.

Viking Gas Cooktop - Ignition sparks continuously when in 'on' position


This is likely caused by either a dirty ignition electrode, a cracked ignition electrode, or a bad spark re-ignition module.

Clean and inspect the six electrodes for cracks, If that doesn't solve it order a new
Ignition module from an internet appliance dealer that carries Viking parts like Appliance Zone.

If you replace the Ignition module yourself, make sure to turn off the circuit breaker to the range/cooktop before you work on it. Also, make a drawing of where the different color leads are plugged into the ignition module before you unplug the wires and plug them into the new re-ignitor. If the unit is under one year, this should be covered under the warranty.
Viking had a recall a few years back on their ignitor modules.

If they ignitors worked properly before you aunt cleaned them, the problem could be with the way they were cleaned and what they were cleaned with. Please tell me how she cleaned them and with what. Also, had she cleaned them before without incurring any problems, or was this the first time she had cleaned them?
