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?

Re: Oben takes half an hour to heat up

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

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.

Bottom oven will not heat up.

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. 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 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!

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.

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!

Pre heat problem

The good news is it does heat up. So that means the controls are ok and the safety valve is ok. So what could be causing the problem? A weak ignitor! The ignitor must draw 3 amps or better to properly open the safety valve. One way for the layman to tell for sure is to look at the ignitor. It should be very bright. If it is dim it is bad. Replace it.

GE XL44 gas oven

Starfish, remove the oven racks, in back there will be two chrome screws, remove them. Lift the lower oven panel out by pulling up from the rear. Remove the screws holding the flame spreader and remove the flame spreader. Now you will see the burner and igniter attached to it. There are 2 quarter inch hex screws holding the ignitor on. GE likes to put them on an angle where you cant get at them. If you have trouble you can remove the bottom drawer and remove the screws securing the burner to the back wall. There should be one in the front too. The burner will now lift up and you can get at the screws. The new ignitor should come with ceramic wire nuts. Just cut the old igniter, strip the ends of the wires going to it and wire nut the new one on. Reverse the rest of the steps. Here's a little trouble shooting schem. back.
