Question about Maytag MGR6772 Gemini Gas Kitchen Range
I am replacing the glow bar on the bottom of the upper burner. For now, i swapped the bottom oven one to the top oven until I get the part. In the process of checking everything out, i set the broiler. Once the oven heats up, the broiler comes on normally and lights. I noticed however that the glow bar stays on, even after I left it for ~5 minutes. This doesn't seem normal to me. Is it? If not, what should I replace? I imagine there is a temp sensor to know when the gas has lit, but I figure if that didn't pick up the fact that the burner has lit, it would have turned off the gas.
The glow bar stays on in gas ranges the whole time the cycle is running if it didn't the safety valve couldn't open its normal

If the glow bar is working (glowing) it is the gas valve. BUT, the glow bar can also actually glow and still not be working 100% and letting enough current through to the valve. You could swap an identical valve out to check it, if you don't have a meter. It's more than likely the valve though.
