Question about Maytag MGR8674AW 5.8 Cu. Ft. Gas Range with Speed Heat and Power Cook

Open Question

I have a Maytag MGR8674AW gas range. It is 2 years old and hardly ever used. The stovetop and bake functions work fine. The broiler does not. At first it worked sometimes if we turned it off and on a few times., now not at all. We can hear the igniter click but no gas. We tried lighting with a match. Still doesn't work. What could be wrong? How expensive to fix? Common problem?

SOURCE: Maytag oven doesn't light, broiler comes on instead

On some gas ranges, the broiler comes on with the bake selection during warm up. This allows the oven to preheat much quicker. More than likely, the control pad is functioning properly and your bake igniter is bad. Igniters become weak with age and eventually go bad. Since the bake feature is used more frequently, it typically goes bad more often. The following link provides you with some guidance on oven igniters:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Remember: just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If they become weak, they will not draw the required current potential to open the gas safety valve.

If you determine the igniter to be bad, you can obtain a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and go to the "Gas Controls" heading and look for item number 14 (part number 74007498). If the igniter plug does not match the plug you have on your oven, the instructions will guide you to cut the wires and splice the ends together. There should be ceramic wire lugs that come with the igniter kit. CAUTION: Make sure you only use the ceramic (heat resistant) lugs that come with the kit. Splicing with regular wire lugs or electrical tape will melt due to the heat. Additionally, make sure you UNPLUG the appliance before replacing the igniter. Live voltage potentials are still present with the range shut off.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: oven igniter problem

Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. Amperage should be 2.5-3A. If less than 2.5A - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers : WB2X9154, 4342528, SGR403, 5304401265;

Those ignitors are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires. If not comfortable splicing wires - replace it with the first one in the list, should be direct replacement.

Good luck!

SOURCE: I recently bought a used

I had same problem, same model. Twice in 4 years. Was the lower ignitor gone bad. First time I assume to old age. 2nd time wife overloaded a roaster pan and it overflowed during cooking, and got liquid/**** on the ignitor somehow and killed it.
New one is $43 (http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts?s=t-crg9700-%3d%3d) online. More like $65-75 locally.
Tip: Upper (broiler) and lower ignitors are identical. For a quick test: Swap out the top one to bottom position and see if it works.
It has just today happened AGAIN to me 7 months later. Hence my being online for this.
It's an old horse, and 2 burners up top are acting funny for some time now. Rather than throw more good money into it I think I may trash it and just buy a new stove.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Could be a board problem or the safety valve. Hard to diagnosis without being there. I'm leaning towards the board if both both burners won't light...hope this helps...

No oven baking function


You need to replace the oven ignitor. The ignitor has to draw enough current to open the gas valve. Your ignitor is either broke or not working properly, so the ignitor will not lite the oven.

Oven will not work - Hi/Lo broiler works fine


you have a bad bake ignitor. it is mounted to the long tube in the very back wall of the tube. usually held on by 2 1/4 inch bolts. usually if you replace the ignitor you have to cut the old one off and hard wire the new one in depending on what the new connection on you ignitor look like.

You probably need to replace the baking igniter, (Igniter,bake burner
Part Number: AP4102011 made by MAYTAG).

I tested the igniter function by (CAREFULLY) jerry rigging a bridge to wire the BAKE igniter to the BROILER controls. (Push/click plugs accessible by opening up the stove back) Testing the broiler controls this way the bake element remained cold. I then did the same test but connected the BROILER igniter to the BAKE controls and got a good glow. This indicates that the controls work but the Bake igniter's faulty!

You can access the bake igniter by removal of 2 screws at the front at the platform just inside the top oven. The broil and bake igniters appear to be identical but the push/click plugs are reversed at the back of the stove. (hence the CAREFUL jerry rigged wiring bridge.) The parts and wiring are pretty simple and visual once you get the covers off. Opening up the stove back is just a matter of removing several screws. UNPLUG the stove before you work. If you test as I described, make all connections while UNPLUGGED and then plug it in only for the brief test. Unplug again while disconnecting/reconnecting. Hope this helps.

Oven not working


Check continuity on gas valve. the middle connector is common, upper is broil and bottom is bake. Resistance between common and bake should be about the same as between common and broil. I believe you'll need to set the ohmmeter to KOhms (or x1000.

If no continuity between any of the connectors - replace gas valve (not much fun, and part is expensive).
