Maytag MGR5770 gas stove. The oven shuts off intermittently

I have a Maytag MGR5770 gas stove. The oven shuts off as it is heating up. When it does the control panel - clock/temp etc. goes dark. After a few minutes the clock comes back on and it's possible to reset the oven temperature and start it again. Sometimes it will stay on, but most of the time it will quit again. The whole control panel area gets very hot from the oven vent which is right below it. Could some duct work in the oven have gotten loose allowing to much heat to escape resulting in the over heating of the controls? Or is something else causing the failure? Thanks, Craig

SOURCE: bottom oven does not heat up, top oven works

the most common problem for your description is that your bottom ignitor is not working properly just because the ignitor glows doesnt mean your ignitor is working it has to draw 3 amps or more to ignite the bottom burner part number for the ignitor is 12400035 let me know how you make out

Replace the ignitor.  You will need remove the bottom plate (remove the two screws back corners).  And the disconnect the wiring from behind.  This little part will cost you approx. $100.

SOURCE: Maytag gas oven won't hold temperature after 30 minutes of use

The Oven safety valve. Look for it on the base plate below your ignitor. It is a the end of the burner manifold and has 2 wires to it Check it quickly by getting to the point where it acts up. But first, Connect a voltmeter to the 2 wires (if you can with them still connected to the safety valve. When it ignites the voltage will be present. Let it cycle off like you described. Now watch it as it tries to come back on. If you get a voltage reading now that indicates everything else is working and the valve is not opening like it should in other words with the voltage to the gas valve and the ignitor glowing you should have a flame. I assume the ignitor comes back on.

If this helped you please rate me as high as you can. If it did not please restate what problem your having and help me to understand it better. Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

WHen turning on the oven to bake it will not ignite a flame. I can broil and cook on top however the gas will not lite when baking. The pilot is on however the gas will not burn unless banging on the part...

This is usually a symptom of a faulty oven safety valve. Over time, it tends to stick internally and banging on it helps unstick it. You can either continue banging on it for faster burner ignition or have it replaced. You'll need the make, model # and sometimes serial # if it's an older model, to replace the part. If you do it yourself, be sure to close the shut off valve behind the stove before you remove it. Douglas

Oven takes forever to pre-heat and then doesn't keep the temp constant. turning on stove burner helps sometimes, and sometimes it works fine. do we need new thermostat or...? not sure if i have right...

Very common problem, I would replace the oven ignitor first as they get weak with time and cause intermittent burner lighting. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Oven does not cook food fully.

I researched the Repair site and for the unit in question it drove me to the Bake Ignitor Glow Bar as being the problem. It is 90% sure the problem lays in this part and instructs to R&R the part.

your technical support is horrible after being left on hold for so long and being told to pay 10.00 just to ask a question is poor business.

hi there,

if it's just the stove, it's not the control board because the rest of your stove work. if it's just the oven, it most likely the thermostat, blower or the heat probe. go to to get parts for it.
