Question about Maytag MGR6775 Stainless Steel Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Maytag MGR6775 Gas stove. One igniter not working.

I have a Maytag Double oven/stove. When I try to ignite ONE PARTICULAR burner, I get no spark. When I use ANY other burner to ignite it, ALL the burners spark....So, only one dial does not produce a spark. HELP!!!

    It ignites from any of the dials except one. When I turn the dial for the ONE burner...nothing happens but gas comes out. When I turn ANY other dial....ALL the burners spark. The problem is that I am having problems getting ONE dial to spark. All others spark. (BTW, when you turn ANY dial...ALL burners spark. That is normal)

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    Where is the ignitor located and how do I get to it? (I imagine it is under the dial...just not sure how to get to it).

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    SO it sounds like the ignitor for that dial. How do I change it?

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    When I tale off the caps, there are two phillip screws to take off the thing that the flame come out of. the metal sparker (ignitor) does not lift out. Also, why would the ignito light/spark using a different knob? That makes me wonder if it is the ignitor or not. It does spark when I use a different knob.

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    Yes...It sparks with 4 out of 5 dials. 1 dial (the one that goes to that burner) does not make it spark. That's my problem. I have 1 dial that does not make the burner spark. I can light it by turning the dial on, then turning a second dial on to make it spark. What do you think it is?

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    yes.

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    That is correct. No clicks...just gas coming out.



  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    How do I test which one and how do I get to them?

  • samorrow Jan 04, 2009

    ok. I got the top off. I see a series of wires that runs down each dial. Where is the spark module and how do I test it?

  • Anonymous Feb 14, 2009

    Similar problem here on my MGR6775. I disassembled the cooktop, and discovered that all five ignition switches (the switches are attached to the valve stem to which the knobs are attached) are connected to the same two wires. These two wires switch on/off all five ignitors at the same time.

    A spill on my stove shorted out one of my ignitor switches and the switch caught fire. Way to go Maytag. Design a stove that catches file when someone spills soup on it. Really? Really???

  • mihulka3 Feb 22, 2009

    I'm having the same issue with my Maytag gas top. It's pretty much a piece of ****. Maytag is milking thier "previous" reputation for quality products.

  • seand99 Apr 29, 2009

    Same probem; one know does not trigger the ignitors (i.e. no clicking) the other knobs all cause all the ignitors to spark. How do I get that knob to trigger the sparks?

Clean the burner with a wire brush around where the ignitor is. it needs a proper ground to ignite. When you turn the burner on do you hear a click click click? If so this should solve the problem.

    you probably have a bad ignitor i would replac e the ignitor that should solve the problem

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    yes it is normal for all of the burners to spark. bbut only the dial that you are turning is letting the gas out. so only that burner will ignite when you turn the knob to ignite.

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    the ignitor is the thing that sparks so what you have to do is take all the caps off of the cooktop. usually they are torque screws sometimes difficult to remove i usually poor some water on them and let them set for a minute. then i remove them. Depending on your modle some of the caps twist of. make sure you turn your poweer off. verify if there are torque screws or no screws

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    If you have the twist off kind yyou can access the ignitor very easy. you will see the wire that goes to the ignitor. you just have to take that off and i believe there is one screw. then the ignitor comes right off.

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    If you have the kind with the torque screws you have to take all burner caps off and pop the lid up to access the ignitor

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    oh it does spark i thought it did not. so

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    is there gas comeing out of the orfice when you turn to light?

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    when you turn the dial that is not working do you here a click or no clicking sound just gas comeing out?

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    since you know that the ignitor is good it is a possible bad spark modual or switch that sit on that individuall gas valve

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    I would say more likly a bad spark modual

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    depends on the model sometimes the spark modual is in the back of the unit usually it is a dark orange color. trace the wires that go to that ignitor to spark modual and see if therre is 120 volts getting to it if so then you know thats your problem. usually i check from one leg to groundd ofr nutral if you can find a nuetral. some models have there own seperate modual for each ignitor usually they are blue. it looks like a square box

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    if you do not have 120 volts. then you have a bad switch that sits on the valve itself its white and has 2 wires going to it ususally a red and a black.

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    turn the gas off first when doing this check. because you have to turn the switch on first. when checking the module.

    also if you can swap one of the ignitor switches with another that is a good way of eliminating the valve switch.

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    I hope this was helpful.

  • erica graber Jan 04, 2009

    sorry i ment to say valve switch not ignitor switch

I have a maytag gemini gas stove three igniters work but won't light the burners. One igniter won't spark


Replace the "igniter switch assembly". The igniter's are getting a weak spark and since you have one that will not spark at all, this is the usual problem. Here is the assembly to order.




The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Maytag gas stove model CRG9830CAE the oven will not work


Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, the igniter needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven will not come on


Does your clock work? This sounds like either a lack of voltage to the oven igniter, or a failed spark igniter or both. Your oven igniter is the easiest to check. With broiler door open or the plate above your oven burner removed, turn your oven on and look for a red to white glow near your ovens burner. This is a ceramic glow plug, and it will not allow gas to leave your manifold until the igniter has reached the proper temperature. If there is no glow, then your igniter has failed and needs to be replaced. The spark module that clicks as you turn your burner has obviously either died, or there isn't enough voltage being supplied to allow it to start up. Unplug your 110v wire from the stove and try a hair dryer or other 110v appliance at the wall outlet to determine if you have proper voltage there.

The worst case scenario is that both your oven igniter and spark module have died, which is rare unless you have had a power surge or lightning strike near the power transformer to your house.

The cheapest way to test this is to buy the oven igniter first, since they are far cheaper than the spark module. If the new igniter lights up, then you can be pretty sure it isn't your power outlet, and can safely move on to the spark module.

None of my 4 ignitors will spark


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Oven doesn't light. I have a Maytag MGR5750. The pre-heat light comes on but no ignition. Stove top burners work okay.


First thing to do is verify if the hot surface igniter or spark igniter is working. If the oven has a bottom broiler compartment then you can check from the bottom compartment. If it has a top broiler then you may need to remove the inner bottom cover inside the oven to look at the burner and igniter. Now turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start to glow or the spark igniter to come on. If the igniter comes on then give the gas control valve(located at the bottom broiler/storage compartment) a tap with a wrench or a screwdriver. If the burner comes on then shut the oven back off and on several times COMPLETELY. If it works then you may have fixed the problem by dislodging debris in the valve. If it does not come back on then the gas control valve may be defective or the igniter could be weak. The igniter should be tested with a ohm meter and if it tests good(500-700 ohms usually) then the gas control valve will need to be replaced otherwise the igniter is bad. On spark ignition systems there is a different procedure. Another thing to check is the "runaway valve" that is located on the gas regulator for the range. It is a little lever located where the oven gas pipe comes off the regulator and cuts the gas to the burner when closed.

All 4 ignitors just stopped working on the stove top...no more 'clicking' sounds


1 Check to be sure unit is properly connected to power supply. 
2 Check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker. 
3 Check to be sure ignitor is dry and clicking. Burner will not light if ignitor is damaged, soiled or wet. If ignitor doesn’t click, turn control knob OFF. 
4 Burner ports may be clogged.
