Gas Oven Won't Light

We have a Maytag Gas Range - Precision Touch Control 500 that we bought in 2004. We turned the oven on today and nothing happened. There is power to the range--the panel display is lighted and I tried one of the gas burners and it lighted without any problem. For some reason the oven is not lighting. Any idea what can be done to fix this?

Make sure the wire is connected to the ignition(where it sparks)if it is gently clean the sparking surface with a piece of fine sandpaper.Hope this helps,if it still does'nt work you may need to replace this part but it should'nt be expensive and you can do it yourself(usually one screw) ps sorry for the late reply.

Use Glass cook top cleaner by Weiman. For stubborn burnt on food use a scraper or razor blade and hold it at and angle almost parallel with the top of the stove top and scrape off gunk.

I have a Maytag gas stove model MGR5730BDW. The oven won't light. The broiler works just fine. The bottom ingiter glows orange and gets hot but the burner won't light.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Just because the ignitor glows does not mean its good..switch the two around and see if the oven comes on. They still glow even when they start to go bad.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Maytag Prec touch 750 lower oven takes too long to preheat


This is a common problem that happens when the oven gas control valve is sticking. This can be caused by a weak hot surface igniter or a defective gas control valve. One thing that you can try(be very careful doing this) is to give the gas control valve a light tap with something hard like a wrench when the oven is turned on,igniter is glowing but the burner is not on. You will need to remove the broiler/storage drawer at the bottom of the oven. Once you pull the drawer out you should see the gas control valve at the back of the range. Try turning on the oven and lightly tapping the valve housing. This may loosen up any debris inside the control valve housing that might be causing the problem. If the oven burner comes on then try completely turning the oven on and back of several times. And when I say completely I mean turn it on after the igniter is not glowing and burner has shut off. This works about 30% of the time. If the burner control valve stick after trying this procedure then it could be the control valve and/or the hot surface igniter defective. The hot surface igniter would need to be disconnected from it's harness and tested with an OHM meter. Most igniters should have a 500 to 700 OHM reading. If you get a reading that is way off then the igniter is defective and replace it. If the igniter tests good then the gas control valve is suspect and replace it. Most appliance parts retailers will test your igniter for free. When the igniter is on it should glow very brightly. If it is dim then that is a sure sign it is bad.

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Hi,

Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

I have a 7yr old Maytag gas slide in oven that sometimes lately takes a long time to reach it's set temperature. Other times it sails right up to the set temp. It works fine other than this. Any...


It sounds like it might be a sticking gas control valve for the oven or the hot surface igniter for the oven might be weak. You will need to turn the oven on and off completely several times until the problem happens. When I say completely I mean turn on the oven control and watch the igniter start to glow. Then when the oven burner comes on(should within a minute) shut of the oven control and wait for the igniter to stp glowing completely and burner to shut off completely. Then repeat the process again. If you try it about 10 times and nothing happens then the problem will be difiicult to identify. If you turn on the oven control and the igniter comes on but the gas burner does not then try giving the gas control valve(located in brolier/storage compartment) a tap with a wrench. If the burner suddenly comes on then the control valve was sticking. Try repeating the shut down/turn on process again. If it does not do it again you may have fixed the problem...if it does you will need to remove the igniter and test it with an ohm meter(should read at least 500 to 800 ohms). If the igniter is testing good and glowing brightly then the gas control valve would be the suspected problem. And remeber to be very careful when doing these testing procedures so you do not hurt yourself.

Oven lights will not turn off, Maytag gas double oven range Prec. touch 750


Hello bohlke75,
Welcome

You said, After cooking in the upper oven today, my wife noticed that both oven lights were on. I tried to turn them off but the oven light button just beeps when activated. I individually tried the plunger switches on both doors but that did not work either. You also unplugged the stove with the hope it would cancel the lights but they came right back on when i plugged it back in. You assume it is something in the touch pad since both lower and upper lights are affected.

Did you leave the plug out for 5 minutes or just do it quickly?
if it only happens on one door then the plunger switch is bad!
if it's both doors then you have a button or control problem. Service can give you a true diagnoses with out the cost of swapping parts randomly!
If it was the plunger you may have been able to get away with a do it your self repair!

Let me know how you do
.
Thank You,
Huuum
