SOURCE: Oven will not light - top burners and broiler work

I would first check the amperage of the igniter. If the igniter is pulling the amps it should then the problem is the gas valve. In my experience the igniter is usually the culprit. They are not difficult to change just make sure you unplug the oven because some times there is live voltage on these wires.

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

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..

My oven is not working The Broiler works and the stove top works fine but the oven will not heat and when you turn it on no gas comes out I tried turning it on and using a lighter but nothing happens


You gave us good clues in information!-- Thanks!

Most modern gas ovens have a device called a Glow Ignitor to light the burner.
If this ignitor has filed, it will NOT left the gas valve open-- (Good thing, right? :-) )

You say the broiler lights fine-- so let's observe something when the Broiler lights:
Do you see a bright glow near the Broiler burner?
(Usually toward the top rear of the oven--)

Well, you should see a similar bright glowing near the BOTTOM rear of your oven, for the main burner to light off-- If you do NOT see this glowing-- then you need a new ignitor-

You can remove the bottom burner cover, and dig deeper into the repair if you like-
But a new ignitor needs to be exactly like the failed one-- the safety circuit is very fussy about the exact same ignitor-- or it will not allow lighting-- even with a new 'generic' installed.

How deep do you want to go into this repair?-- Maybe it is time to call the service people into do the job?-- You can tell them that you think the ignitor needs replacing-- and approx. what will they charge you for the service call and the ignitor?

I hope this helped.

Check the burner ports near the ignitor for blockage. I had one of these units, and the ignitor was not mounted correctly, and caused a similar problem

Hotpoint oven glowbar not working


My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
