Our Maytag MGR5729ADW recently started having a problem. Whenever the oven was turned on gas would flow but did not ignite. My wife thought she was baking, but I walked in the kitchen and smell a heavy gas smell. Bad igniter or not the gas control valve should never open unless there is ignition. Had we turned on the oven and left the house, there would have been a major problem.
After a little more checking I will probably replace the igniter and the gas control valve. The parts are not cheap but neither is a house.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Frigidaire

Oven ignitors get weak with age. They may glow, but need to reach a certain amperage draw threshold in order for the gas safety valve to open. Replace the oven ignitor part number 316001810. (note: low voltage can also affect the amperage draw, and thus the ignition, but is not very common a problem.)

SOURCE: GE Oven does not light - no gas smell and no electronic ignition clicking sound

Gas oven does not work. Burners and broiler work. When oven kGnob is turned on, there is no glow at ignitor, nor any gas smell.

SOURCE: Oven's ignitor is bright, I smell gas, but it won't lite.

if ignitor is brt orange to white its hot enough to ignite gas,either the flame sensor is giving wrong signal to control board and not opening gas valve or signals the gas valve to shut off gas before ignition,also your flame sensor could be faulty or control board is bad

Ignitor needs to be working for the gas valve to open. If the ignitor does not reach the proper amp draw the gas valve will not open. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru performing an amp draw test on the ignitor.

I just turned on our pilotless oven and noticed the smell of gas. Turned it off naturally. The stove worked fine earlier in the day.


Hi,

You could have a weak ignitor which can cause a smell of gas, I would have it checked unless you have a way to test for amperage. Test with amp probe should read 3.2 -3.6 amps if less than 3.0 replace ignitor. I hope this helps.
Good Luck

My maytag mgr5729adw gas range oven omits a strong gas smell when attempting to preheat. Sometimes it heats sometimes it doesn't but use to get a small boom when igniting. Ignitor still glows oran


see the next steps and proceed with common sense: God bless you
Main Control / Oven Switch
The main control or oven switch may have failed. You will need to identify the wires from the switch/control that lead to the igniter that is clicking. These wires may pass through the spark module and change colors. Refer to the wiring diagram or tech sheet. If you have power leaving the switch/ control when in the off position replace the switch /control. Manual switches can be tested with an ohmeter.

Spark Module / Igniter Module
If your oven igniter keeps clicking the igniter module or spark module is the likely problem. First be sure the igniter is clean and the surrounding contact points are clean. Make sure power is off when cleaning. If the oven keeps clicking after it's cleaned and the oven switch / control checks good replace the spark module.

I have a maytag gas stove model #MGR5775QDQ serial # 14863475CX the oven takes a long time to light and when it does it will not maintain a temp.


Hi,
You have a bad ignitor to your oven. Part number you should replace is 12400035. This should fix this problem. Just because it glows does not mean it work correctly, it works off of the flow of electricity rather then the glow of the ignitor.

Maytag oven doesn't fire, but stovetop burners work fine


This will sound crazy but I had to work through it on my own stove a few years ago. The ignitor (glow tube) was getting hot but the oven would not owrk. When investigating the problem I found that the gas valve will only open when the ignitor pulls a specific amperage or draw of current. As the ignitor ages it pu;;s a reduced draw of current. This causes you to be fooled by the glow nut no gas. Replace your ignitor and your oven will begin to work again!
You can get ignitors easily online by doing a search for "appliance parts" and then entering the model number of your stove. Look for ignitor and you will be good to go. Also check out a few different sites as the prices of the parts can vary quite a bit.

My maytag gas oven model #MGR5755QDW makes a loud poof noise when first turned on. It doesn't do it all the time and it only happens when it is first lights.


You are getting a delayed ignition fom the oven burner. Either the ports on the burner near the ignitor are clogged or you have a weak oven ignitor. part # 12400035 @ $70.00
