    Ditto on the problem and our's was purchased about 2003.  But our oven problem has been going on for almost a year. We used to be able to pre-heat on broil, then go to bake and it would work adequately, but now all it does is pulse and not really heat up at all. Burners / broiler work fine.  We think it may be the oven control module or the touch pad gone bad (ie parts not communicating with each other). We know a good service guy and are trying to contact him for advice.

We may have found an answer to it -  google Maytag Gas and Electric Range Service Manual (1997 models to present) and save it as a PDF to your desk top.  Then print out the PDF pages # 18, 25 & 26, 52, 62 65 & 66.  Those pages sound exactly like the problem we're having, which sounds identical to the problem you're having. We now suspect the issue is the gas valve heater coil and the volts it needs for ignition.  Because without enough volts, the ignitor won't ignite (like, duh?).  The specific PDF page is # 66 in reference to the Glow Bar Operation item # 4. If we're right, we'll need to get three small parts, totaling about $60 in all.  Let's hope this is the solution!

The ignitor is suppose to glow bright yellow at it's peak. If it glows orange it will not work for the circuit. If this is the case replace the ignitor.

Amana stove, oven igniter works but oven wont light


although the bake ignitor appears to be glowing, it probably does not glow with the intensity it needs to open the safety valve assy, VERY common problem, go aheadand replace the ignitor, this will correct your issue

Oven wont light


Mine did that and I found the ignitor for the oven was bad. It was the "glow" type for pilotless ignition and it was burned out. It is supposed to glow bright red and the gas comes on and the oven will light. It was easy to tell that it was bad. But to check it I swapped the broiler ignitor with the oven ignitor and the oven worked.

Jgr8855bds range - oven problem


that's too long, check to see if you have flame in the broiler section, i'm thinking not. see if your ignitor is just staying on without igniting burner, ignitors will produce that much heat in that amount of time. if no flame at butner, replace ignitor.
