Oven fills with gas Maytag Appliance MGR5780BDQ

I have Maytag Appliance MGR5780BDQ The ignighter glows, gas will come out of the burner but it will not light! This happened over about a months time. I noticed a gas smell when using the oven and at the time it worked, but now it will not work right at all. Now the oven fill up with gas but lights once the oven is full and blows up!! Very dangerous. How can the gas come out? And why does the safety feature not work?? I had the gas man out and he said I must have a plug in the line, making the gas pressure to low?? ( He is not a repair man for stoves so he might of been guessing?) If this was the case then why do the burners work and why does the broiler work just fine. The stove is fairly new, I think 3 years makes it fairly new!! Thank you for your jelp.

Your ignitor is becoming defective. Even though it is glowing, it is not creating the proper resistance to "pop" the gas valve open. Instead, gas slowly seeps into the oven cavity until it finally ignites and causes a potentially dangerous situation. Call an experienced technician and have it checked.

I have a Maytag Performa gas stove, the burners work fine, but the oven wont come on at all, the ignitors glow, but it doesn't seem to be getting any gas??


just because the ignitor is glowing doesn't mean it still isn't bad.you need an amp meter with a clamp on it,stick one of the wires into the clamp,if it's a flat ignitor it should read 3.2 amps,if it's round i believe it's 2.5 amps.if it doesn't get the correct amps it won't let the gas into the burner tube.you say the ignitors glow,do you mean the broil doesn't work also?if so you could have a bad gas valve or the clock could be bad,there's a computer board in the clock assy.on some of the machines.next time send the model number,open the bottom draw and you should see a tag with the model and serial number on the frame that the draw covers when it's closed.check this site out it should help you......

It looks as though the pilot for our Maytag oven is out. The burners are working fine. Could it be the thermocoupler, and if so, how do I identify it?


It is rather unusual for an oven these days to have a standing pilot, (and thus the Thermo Couple)

Are you sure yours doesn't have a glowing ignitor to light the gas?
Usually there is a separate ignitor and burner for broil, and a separate one for the Main oven burner-
Can you see the ignitor glow on one or the other burners?

If the ignitor is broken-- you can not get the burner to light

Do yo want to try changing the ignitor?

Let us know more about what you have--

SET DIGITAL THERMOSTAT TO SAY 350 DEGREES WILL NOT TURN ON OVEN,,, ? IF I SET TO BROIL BROIL WORKS BUT OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON ?


Possibly the ignitor for the main oven burner has failed--

An observation question:

When the Broiler 'lights' and comes on, do you notice the ignitor glowing bright, before the gas valve (to the Broiler) opens, and you get the Broiler lighting---

Now-- for the main burner to come on, -- there has to be a similar bright glow from the MAIN BURNER ignitor, before its main burner gas valve can open-- No Ignitor?-- No ignition, and not Main Oven burner!

Let me know what you need from this point on --

I have a GE Spectra XL44, model #JGBP40BEC4WH gas oven. The 4 burners on top work but the oven will not. I replaced the oven safety valve (dual type 1), thinking that it was stuck and not directing gas to...


Most likely, you're oven igniter is not getting hot enough to open the gas valve to ignite the burner. It glows like normal, but does not reach the temperature required to open the gas valve. Replace the igniter. Before you replace that, make sure that the small shutoff lever on the appliance regulator was not accidentally closed, which would turn off the gas to the oven, while still allowing gas to the stovetop. The silver lever should be sticking straight out or up. Douglas

Viking gas stove operators manual....I was working on my stove ...it was not lighting up....the stove......and I noticed that there was 2 burners...and when I replaced one of the ignighters and tryed the...


The way it works is the igniter gets voltage signal from the control and will start to glow. The gas valve for the burner and the igniter are wired on the same circuit. When the igniter starts to glow it takes all the voltage from the circuit. As the igniter increases in temp the resistence changes and the voltage starts to travel to the gas valve. Once the gas valve registers 3 to 4 volts it will open allowing gas to the burner for ignition. The igniter needs to reach approx 2200 degrees for this to happen. So it could be the igniter or the gas valve. The igniter should test approx 500 to 700 ohms with a ohm meter. The gas valve could also be sticking. If the igniter is glowing bright and you tap the gas valve with a wrench and it comes on then the gas valve is sticking and needs replacement(as long as the igniter tests good)...Hope that helps.

The lower oven ignighter does not glow


I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Electric ignighter does not come on in the oven at all


In most cases it is the ignitor itself. Eledtricity goes thru the ignitor and as it gets hot it allows more electricity thru to the gas coils, allowing them to open and let the gas go thru. The ignitors do get weak and will glow but that is all. Not enough electricity can get to the gas valve solenoids and let gas thru. Find a local parts dealer and give them your make and model # to order the part.
