Question about Maytag PGR5710 Performa Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oben takes half an hour to heat up

I have a Maytag, MGR5710ADW. I took off the bottom insulated cover to check the ignitor. The ignitor turns red and about 60 seconds or so the oven lights but it takes 30 minutes for the oven to get to 350 degrees. I am suprised how little flame there is in the bottom of the oven. Can my ignitor be going out? I do not have a problem with the burners so does that mean my gas valve is ok?

    I am having the same issue with our MGR5710ADW Maytag gas range. I called a repair man since I cannot find a solution. We turn on the oven and the flame ingnites, but it is very low and takes 30 minutes to get to 300 degrees.

    same problem, only mine takes almost 90 minutes to reach 350 deg. HELP!!!

  • marcekb Mar 10, 2009

    Same problem -- takes 45 - 90 minutes to preheat between 350 and 450 degrees. When I smack the (valve?) box at the back of the oven where the gas flows into the oven, it supplies lots of gas for a short period and then either stops or restricts the gas again. I can hear it trying to allow gas, and sometimes it can get a full opening, sometimes restricted. I pound again, and it opens full for a short time. Doesn't sound like a blockage, but I don't know for sure. Ideas?

    I would like to remove the bottom oven panel in my maytag MGS5870 gas range so that I can check the ignitor. Where are any screws located? The back seems to pop up and it slides around, but I can't get it out.

I doubt its the igniter. It could be a faulty gas valve or maybe the orifice is blocked, and not letting enough gas into the burner

    It would be a rare occurrence for the orifice to get dirt or something in it and block it. With out a gage to test the gas pressure it would be difficult to test the gas valve for proper pressure. You might have to call a repair man for this one.

My Maytag Gemini cooktop and top oven work. The bottom oven will not heat up past 100 degrees. What is the problem?

Replacing the ignitor is not difficult or dangerous. To get at it, you will first take out the racks. Then undo the box-like cover inside the bottom of the oven; the screws face front. Underneath that is a wing-shaped cover, held in place with wingnuts. Remove it.

The pipe that the gas comes out of heads straight back; the ignitor is just to the left. You'll be able to see the wires going out the back of the oven. Remove the plates that hold the tube/ignitor combination.

Once the pipe is free, then get your head out of the oven and pull out the oven so you can see, and get at, the back. On the lower left is a cover, about 12 x 15 or so, held in place by four screws. Remove it.

At this point you can see where the ignitor connects to the orange wires (at least mine are orange) with a plastic connection. Undo that connection.

Viola! You have removed the ignitor! Now, before you forget, make a diagram of everything you did. Put the screws in separate plastic baggies, with paper number tabs that correspond to your drawing. This will greatly help in putting everything back together.

My Maytag model no. MDG6200AWW will not ignite. Gas is on; electricity is OK; dryer acts like it's on "air dry" when it is on "regular" setting. Can I repair on my own?

It sounds like you could have a ignitor issue. Usually there is a small plastic plug located at the bottom right of your dryer in which you can view the ignitor in action. if there isnt a plug you will have to first take off the door by removing the hinges. after the door is off there are two screw at the bottom of the front access panel remove them and your panel should lift out from the bottom. once this panel is off you should again be able to see the ignitor in action. turn your dryer on a normal heat setting and wait for the ignitor to come on, if it glows RED hot the ignitor is NOT good. if it is burning WHITE hot you do not need to replace this, ignitor part number is 304970. hope this helps

Gas dryer won't heat with cover off

The 2 coils on the gas valve , need to be replaced . After the dryer runs for a short time , the coils get warm from the electricity going thru them . The weaker valve , shorts internally , not letting the gas go thru . After the dryer cools down , and the coils cool down , then the short will close ( giving continuity ) , until they warm up again . If you had given the model number , I would have given you the part number .

Oven heats very slowly

If your top burners work ok, regulator should be ok. Majority of times the fail part in the oven is the ignitor...turn oven on and check for a flame after 10 mins. small flame could mean a bad safety valve.

Oven heats to 185 degrees in a hour on preheat

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. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

I have a maytag MGS 5770 ADA range/oven. The oven does not heat. The top burners and broilers work fine. However, the bottom oven burner doesnt kick in. the igniter glows red hot but the gas never...

I would start by replacing the ignitor. It could glow enough to light the oven, but to maintain the burner, it often re-ignites several times during a cooking cycle. I have had the problem before, replaced the ignitor and all was well. You should be able to find an ignitor for under $40 online. Just google 'Maytag oven ignitor' and you should find many offers. My sister just bought one for $19.99!
