Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

Maytag mgs5770adc range

We just moved into this house. It has a Maytag range of the model shown. We did notice early on that the oven took a very long time to reach the preheat temp. In past several days we noticed that there was the occasional "flop" sound when the set temp was reached and then the same sound as the oven cycled. However, today when we tried to used the oven it at first got only to 235 and then stopped heating. Now, it won't even light. Top burners work fine. When I try to use the broil, I can see the igniter glowing but the burner doesn't subsequently light. I suspect the same is going on with the main oven burner. Any thoughts?

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.

Move a shield and you will find it

Maytag MGS5770ADC Two problems, 1) The temp.

I see you have two different problems, one for the display you would have to change your clock, and because you did not give me a complete model number I can't get you the part number you need (four different colors possible on this model). Second, when an oven ignitor becomes weak it can extend cooking times and cause the same problems you have, also if you oven sensor is defective or has oven cleaner n it can cause temperatures to be erratic. I will and can help you but need a complete model number to get you more information. Located left or right side of storage drawer when its pulled out along the frame rails.
Good luck..

Bottom burner does not light, broiler works

Looks like you'd want a 74007498 oven igniter, which generally goes for about $75. Personally, I'd fix it, but the final call is your, or course. Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my score. Thanks.

I have a maytag MGS 5770 ADA range/oven. The oven does not heat. The top burners and broilers work fine. However, the bottom oven burner doesnt kick in. the igniter glows red hot but the gas never...

I would start by replacing the ignitor. It could glow enough to light the oven, but to maintain the burner, it often re-ignites several times during a cooking cycle. I have had the problem before, replaced the ignitor and all was well. You should be able to find an ignitor for under $40 online. Just google 'Maytag oven ignitor' and you should find many offers. My sister just bought one for $19.99!

No model number anywhere on the range

Reach behind the upper-left corner of the control panel. There should be a 1"x8" aluminum flag that can swing up. The model, etc. is on there.
