Gas oven on freestanding Maytag MGR5730BDW range keeps relighting

I have a maytag freestanding range that is probably about 10 years old. It as electronic ignition and recently the oven has been constantly lighting and flame going out and then relighting again. Happens every 2 seconds to 30 seconds as it is preheating and probably every minute or two afterwards while cooking. Using other gas appliances in the house makes no difference. It also makes a weird purring or puttering sound that is more noticed when you first turn it on. It also mellows out and doesn't sound as if the flame is getting blown out and runs more normal when you turn a top burner on while oven is operating.

SOURCE: Igniters won't stop poppong

Sing, sounds like you got one of your burner valve switches wet and it's grounding out. Try taking a hair dryer, pull of the burner knobs and going lightly over the control valves. The switches are mounted to these valves. It just may need to be dried out. If this doesn't work, one of the switches shorted out. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Oven Burner turns off during preheat

Mike, I think your problem is in the ignitor itself. Turn the gas off and see how many amps it's drawing during the bake mode. It needs between 3.2 and 3.6 amps to keep that valve open. Then ohm out the temperature probe, appox 1132ohms at room temp. You can see if your electronic control will go into a quick test by pressing and holding the cancel and broil buttons together for 3 seconds. First kill the power to the range and power back up before entering. When quick test appears you can check the bake relay by pressing bake. The relay should activate and 1 should be displayed. Same thing for convection bake except the fan should run too. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: jenn air jgr8850adw won't bake

This usually is an indication of a bad igniter. If this is the standard glow type igniter, it could appear as if it is working, but may not be providing enough current to open the gas valve. This is a safety feature on gas ovens. The gas valve requires a current potential of .32 to .37 amps through the igniter before it will open and allow gas to flow. This prevents gas leakage if the igniter fails to light. The reason your broiler works is probably due to the fact that the broiler gets used less and the igniter is probably in better condition. You can test this theory, if you like, by swapping the igniter for the bake and broil burners to see if the symptoms change. Or, you can simply just replace the bake igniter with a new one. Make sure you secure the power before attempting, though. You shouldn't have to turn off the gas for this. Chances are that's all it is. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Igniter continuously clicks

I had this problem. It was caused by the burner "thinking" the flame had turned off--it was clicking because it was sparking to re-start the flame from the gas. I was able to fix it by tightening a flat, thin nut at the top of the burner.

SOURCE: GE gas stove the burners on top work, the oven won't get hot

The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.

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.

Lost manual for self cleaninf Maytag oven. It's about 8-10 years old.


My answer is to NOT use that feature, as generally after most people use that :Feature" straight after the oven faults, you see that "Cleaning" mode simply heats the oven up wayyy up to like 900 degrees up, and after this the temperature sensors generally "Go" so my advice is ... use elbow grease and save a lot of possible problems, especially with a 8 - 10 yo unit.
