Maytag Oven will not heat up

I have a maytag oven (model MGR4450BDW) -- when I turn it on, the igniter rod (excuse my terminology) lights up but the flames do not light up along the aluminum rod to heat the oven.

Any idea what it may be?

    coolguy008,

    I did notice that when I turn on my oven, while the igniter does light up, I do not smell any gas or it does not appear to be any gas flow along the aluminum rod running along the gas rod.

Sounds like the gas valve may not be opening up

    Eliminate the gas valve first--Use a meter and connect the 2 wires off
    the valve to it.turn the oven on and you should either read 120v or 24v
    depending on the unit.If you have the voltage but no ignition the valve
    may be bad.However if you dont have the voltage i would suspect the
    heat board or thermostat as an issue.I would also check the
    pilot/burner for a clog from soot,even more so if the units propane.Let
    me know

    Well with no gas smell, I would definitely say that it is a gas problem, most likely the valve, let me know whether you need any further help

This could be two possible problems. The igniter maybe bad, but doubt it. The igniter works both the oven and broiler, I believe on this model. The first thing I suspect is the switch in your wiring harness. The harness has a switch attached to it for each manifold. The switch for your oven maybe out.

I smell gas when I turn on my oven. I replaced the gas line but have the same result.


Your Maytag wall oven is equipped with
pilotless ignition. Heat from the Glow Bar
ignitor lights the oven burner. With this type of
ignition system, the oven will not operate
during a power failure or if the wall oven is
disconnected from the wall outlet.

if it is plugged in and everything, your glow bar may be broken, which would mean you will either need to replace it, or get professional service.

Oven Stopped Working..


It sounds like the igniter. The oven is not getting a spark to turn on, and heat up. We had the same problem, but changed the igniter, and it works fine. Good luck!
