Question about Maytag MGRH752CDS (Gas) Stainless Steel Kitchen Range
Oven purchased in 2007. Preheat has been slow recently. Igniter glows immediately after turning on bake. Takes about 90 sec to ignite gas. Some smell of gas initially. Gas seems to pulse on and off every few seconds during preheat. Gets to 300 in 15 min or so. No problems with broiler or range. Thinking igniter, but would like to know how to troubleshoot and verify before sending out for the part. Measure current? Other option seems to be the regulator, but there are no issues with other gas... Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

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!

Hi, I'm Neil
It is a fire hazard! Be Careful!
It's a gas regulator or thermostat
This time you will have to call the the manufacturer for service!
If it's under a year old ,your under warranty and it will not cost you anything!
Please give me a solution rating here!

Self cleaning functions often blow fuses and relays when used.
Your relay that is blown is located behind the rear panel in the oven.

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.

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below. Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic
