Question about Maytag MGC5430 Gas Cooktop
This is the fix to ALL burner ignitors dying at the same time. The spark module (parts select PS2003170 or Maytag Part No 12001596) has gone bad. Follow this link to see schematics and ordering information from www.partselect.com:
I would suggest purchasing the bracket in case it mounts a little different than the original. Also, click on the part number for the module and when that link opens up, click on "There are 4 Do It Yourself...." to see experiences of other people who have done the repair.
If you want a cheaper price, check www.partstore.com with the Maytag part number.
SOURCE: I do not get spark,
Here is a tip that I wrote to help people troubleshoot problems with their cooktops not igniting.
Cooktop Range Stove spark ignition does not work
Posted on Aug 18, 2010
SOURCE: None of the 4 burners
The burner may not light if the ignitor is damaged, soiled or wet.
The spark is not coming because igniter is weak.
the problem with your oven is a bad igniter.
Let me explain how it works:
The igniter is wired in series with the burner valve. When the thermostat calls for heat, line voltage is applied to the circuit. As the igniter begins to glow, the current increases. The current flow causes the valve to open when the igniter becomes bright red (almost white). Flat igniters operate from 3.2 to 3.6 amps. In your case the current is less then 3.2 amps and even it does glow it does not open the gas valve.
Replacing the igniter should solve the problem.
