Question about Maytag MGR5750 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Oven will not keep temp.

I have a Maytag gas oven MGR 5720, 30 or 50. It is about 10 years old. The oven heats to temp but then does not retain the temp. It will not re-ignite to keep at temp. The only way to get it to work is to shut it off and cool down and start over.

SOURCE: Oven will not maintain temprature

This is a parts problem, I think called the burner ignitor. It is a pn oven part. We have had it in the past and are experiencing it again. We have had our stove for about 15 years, so I guess it is not too bad a problem, but not inexpensive. The oven is letting the gas be off too long between reignitions, so it does not maintain temperature. The first time we realized the probelem was with the Thanksgiving turkey (pink in the joints.)

We had to have the part replaced about 7 years ago and the part was about a $200 part plus service call. I am sure it more costly now. Hopefully you can get yours under warranty.

SOURCE: oven takes a long time to heat up.

Hello. To go 12 years without issues is excellent. Now however you will have to make a decision to repair or replace. Be sure to get a firm estimate before you repair and compare that to the cost of replacement.

here is what may be causing your problem:

Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

Have Maytag MER5755QAW range, the oven will not heat up, the display was working isn't now, i check both elements and temp sensor, all ok


The display control will need to be replaced. It may be cheaper to replace the unit since the control is so expensive. Here is a link to the part you need.

My Maytag stove. I know it's normal to feel heat from the vent on the stove top when the oven is on. But the temp of the heat escaping is sooo much hotter than it used to be. Do I need a fix ? Model...


The heat from your vent should be a little lower than what the oven is set at. So I doubt if you have a problem but you might want to take some temperature measurements to see.

Oven takes forever to pre-heat and then doesn't keep the temp constant. turning on stove burner helps sometimes, and sometimes it works fine. do we need new thermostat or...? not sure if i have right...


Very common problem, I would replace the oven ignitor first as they get weak with time and cause intermittent burner lighting. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
