SOURCE: Maytag oven will not ignite

If its a square glow bar it must pull 3.5 apms to open the gas valve. Round ones pull 2.5 apms. even though the glow bar is on it must be real bright. Has it been taken over 45 second to light the oven. You will need some way to check the amps. If its getting enough amps the safety valve is bad.

SOURCE: 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.

My oven will not heat up in the "bake" mode. It


Thank you for posting your question. What your describing is a bad bake igniter. When an igniter has failed you can usually see it glow but no heat. Sometimes this igniter will go out completely and you will not see a glow at all. When the igniter is working correctly it glows very hot and when ready it draws amps and sends a single to the gas valve to release gas to ignite a flame. The failed igniter part is affordable to fix and can be purchased at any appliance parts store or online. Be sure to have your model number handy and mention you need a bake igniter.
Take a look at this link it has a picture of the igniter you need #13

I will include steps to replacing your igniter and which should save you money on this repair.
  1. Unplug the range
  2. Take out racks
  3. Remove bottom cover of oven removing any screws associated
  4. Disconnect the burner plate
  5. Disconnect manifold tube with igniter attached and lay on its side
  6. Snip the 2x wires connecting the igniter about 2in in link
  7. Unscrew 2x screws holding igniter and replace and install new igniter
  8. Prep. wires and use ceramic wire nuts to connect wires.
  9. Reinstall all components
Retest the unit. New igniter will take a little longer to ignite that is normal.

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.

Maytag MGR6775 Gas stove. One igniter not working.


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.

After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite


The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.

Oven burner doesn't light


If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
