Question about Maytag PGR5710 Performa Gas Kitchen Range
We have had our Maytag range Model MGR5720BDW for about 6 years. Today the oven lit and began to heat up, then the flame seemed to sputter out and the smell of gas became really strong. I turned it off and aired it out, then tried to restart it. Again, I heard the gas turn on and the ignitor try to light it, a "whoomp" noise, but no flame. The gas automatically turned off a few seconds later. Is it possible that the ignitor is just dirty or should we replace it? If we need to replace it, is it a repair that can be done by a fairly handy person or do we need to call a repair person? And where can we order any part we may need? Thanks for your help.
Sounds like an igniter problem to me. They are heating elements with a limited life & are quite easy to change. There is one for the broiler on the top as well. Why not try swapping them to confirm this diagnosis. If you never use broil then your problem may be solved!

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
