I have a maytag gas stove model mgr5720adh When I use the oven during the preheat is fine it does take longer to preheat but when it maintaining the temp I start smelling gas.


Change the igniter the igniter is not getting hot enough to open the safety valve and what it does there's not enough heat on the igniter to ignite the flame of the burner

My Maytag Gas Oven MGR5750ADW preheats on certain temperatures and not others. For example it wont preheat at 350 degrees but will preheat at 380 degrees. At 350 we smell gas.


What you have is an ignition problem get this corrected before you experience a delayed ignition, the hot surface ignitor pulls enough amps 3-3.4 to power up and open the gas valve but ignition did not take place reason you smell gas don't know how old unit is ignitor may be weak good on draws 3-3.5 amps burner ports may be dirty or the bracket that the ignitor mounts too may have bowed away from the burner

Gas oven is slow to ignite & preheat


What kind of range? Taking that long to ignite and small flame. Sounds like both weak ignitor and safety valve is not opening.

I have a hotpoint gas oven the will preheat , but not maintain temperature


Hello,

That pretty much sounds like a weak igniter thats causing your troubles, while the igniter first comes on to preheat the oven its seems to be ok,yet once it has been on for a while the igniter is getting weak and not allowing the gas to flow properly once its hot. By replacing the igniter the oven will maintain tempature.

Slow and uneven ignition on the oven burners that causes the oven to take hours to preheat


MOST OF THE TIME THIS IS CAUSED BY A WEAK IGNITOR.WHEN THE IGNITOR IS WEAK IT WONT PULL ENOUGH CURRENT THROUGH THE GAS VALVE TO OPEN IT UP.SOMETIMES IT WILL OPEN ONLY PARTWAY .GOOD LUCK!

I have a Maytag Gemini Precision touch 750 series double oven range MGR6775ADB. The lower over is not responding. It will not preheat. The display says preheat and stays at 100. There is no flame igniting.


This sounds like your ignitor has gone out. The preheat will work because the valve doesn't have to ignite to heat to 100 degrees, but whent he unit is ready to ignite, the gas can't ignite it. If you will call or email us, we'll be sure to get the correct ignitor out to you asap so you have your oven orking right away! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I hope you get this repaired soon. We hope this helps and we hope to hear back from you soon.

Oven takes up to 25 min. to preheat


I would suggest looking at how long before the bake burner ignites. If taking longer than 5 minutes before it ignites, then you are looking at a possible bad ignitor. The ignitors just don't last more than 5 yrs with regular use.
