Have you checked the bake element. If could be bad or a wire could have burned off.

Oven wont get hot it reads 100 and stays at 100 even when it is set for , say 450 it goes right back to 100 and stays at that reading. the burners are working on top and the broiler works fine, but the...


Thank you for the reply. Yes this is an awful time to be without an oven, unfortunately as a technician it is one of three busiest times of year for ovens/ranges, the others being Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year holidays.

The other bad news is this, the hot surface ignitor is likely the problem and cannot be by-passed or manipulated into functioning.

However, if the boiler has the same ignitor one could in theory swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled & remember to unplug the range from the wall ) and it will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function. I guess that is the lesser of two evils right now.

When there is a part`s place open near you or on-line you can ask for part number 12400035. That is the most common for Maytag built gas oven`s, but double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. Sorry to be the barer of unfortunate news, but with some hope sprinkled in...hopefully.

Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.

My Maytag oven (mgs5870adw) isn't getting as hot as it should.The boiler works and all of the burners work. I haven't confirmed my problem other than noticing that things don't cook evenly and/or take way...

mlong9876 - I am having the same problem as you posted re: Maytag (mgs5870adw). I am trying to arrive at the same resolution changing the lower igniter in my same model oven. Were you able to remove the lower oven plate to access the top of the burner and igniter with the convection bake fan housing in the back? I am having difficulty getting to the igniter.

My boiler is working not my oven

You do not give much information, such as the model number, or if it is even gas or electric. If it is electric, the oven element is the most likely cause. If it is gas, the oven glow bar ignitor is the most likely problem. (Oh, by the way, that's broiler, not boiler)

Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3

This is probably the thermal shuttoff fuse. Usualy mounted in the back of the oven. Aftermarket fuses are resetable but the OEM ones that come with the ovens usualy are not, so when they go out they stay out. This shuttoff only effects the power to the element so the rest of the oven appears to work.
The oven has to come out and remove the rear covers, behind the covers you will see 2 wires that go to a small 1/2 in dia "plug" that mounts directly to the surface with 2 screws.
Remove the connections and put a meter across the cuttout. it should read very close to zero ohms, if not its blown.
