The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Oven won't ignite


most likely you have a bad ignitor.take out the racks and remove the floor,you'll see the ignitor,turn on the bake,the ignitor should glow and the flame should lite within 40 seconds,if it doesn't change out the ignitor,even if it glows that doesn't mean the ignitor is still good change it out.let me know what you find and next time send model number

Ignitor lights up bright, but no ignition,no flame and I don't hear the gas turn on like I normally do. Top burners work fine.


Hello, welcome to fixya ! Based on your description I suspect you have a faulty bake ignitor. This may surprise you, or it may not. I think at first it surprises people when the hot surface ignitor glows but the oven won't lite. Since the ignitor "glows" one figures it would appear to be working, that would be wrong. These ignitor's serve 2 functions, 1) need to maintain a set value to open/activate the gas valve, typically around 3.5amps... & 2) ignite the fuel once said gas valve is open. A poor/faulty ignitor may glow & and even ignite the burner intermittently for moments at a time ( thus giving off some heat but never the set amount or not lite at all ) but yet not reach the needed value to open the gas valve/safety valve consistently nor adequately, hence the need to replace the ignitor. Try this and I'm certain you'll be up & running and as they say " cookin' with gas" ! I'd suggest you should refer to your specific model when ordering the part locally or on-line. The most common hot surface ignitor part is #12400035 and it will work in your Whirlpool too. Try places like repairclinic.com, searspartsdirect.com, APwagner.com etc. Thank's for visiting "fixya" for your stove inquiries. Please take a moment while here to rate the solution provided or let me know if you require further assistance and good luck. macmarkus :)

Our glow bar lights up when gas oven is turned on, then the gas comes out, but it takes a long time to lite the gas resulting in an explosion inside the oven. Or with too much gas filling up the kitchen....


Typically the issue here is a weak glow bar (hot surface ignitor). When they weaken they open the gas valve slowly and it takes a bit for the ignitor to light up the oven burner.

It is a safe bet that you need to replace it.

When i turn oven nob no gas will go to oven burner to lite oven. took apart oven hose connections and did not smell gas. thanks


Hi, The problem is with the ignitor 9 out of 10 cases. On oven's with hot surface ignition the ignitor act's like a resistor, (not litrally, just an example to help) when it is good and glowing almost white hot, it will only then open the gas valve to lite the burner. (don't let the fact that it is glowing to a lesser degree fool you as often it does with do-it- yourselfers or even technician's not familiar with them) A common ignitor for Maytag ovens is 77001258 and usually retail at $40-$50. Check with your local part supplier or any number of on-line vendors using your model & serial number. Hope this help's, if so please take a second and rate the solution I provided for you here at fixya...and spread the word. Thank you and good luck. macmarkus :)

Oven no lite


Hi, Remove the bottom panel in the oven and turn it on to heat. Look and see if the ignitor glows. You can test it at the connector to see if it is getting 120V. If it is getting voltage and not glowing, the ignitor is bad. The most common problem is the ignitor.
It can glow and still not open the gas valve.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Gas oven will wil light


Check the glow bar ignitor in the oven.
Does it come on and glow brightly.
If not, replace the glow bar.

OVEN WILL NOT (GAS) LITE


With the assumption you have a gas range with electric ignition and is fully powered (plugged in); the possible problem may be the "Electric ignitor/Glow bar".

When turning on the oven, do you see a redish (good) or yellowish (not good; replace) glow emitting from the very bottom or the oven/broil area?

There are typically 2 types of electric glow bar ignitors; Round and Square. Ignitors are actually fairly easy to replace, removing 2 mounting screws and cutting/splicing 2 seperate wires together. Is your ignitor "round" (circular - like size of finger ) or "square" (rectangular - like snickers candy bar)

If your ignitor is not coming on at all; this can be a couple things;

Defective Ignitor - Gone completely Bad - Out (Assuming your have full power 110v to ignitor)

Defective Gas Valve - Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor

Defective Control Board / Thermostat: Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor

FYI - As a safety measure, the ignitor needs to "come on and appear solid red" to properly pass power to gas valve; thus opening and allowing gas to pass through the burners and combust.

Oven does not heat


Gowen, more than likley it's your ignitor that failed. Remove the ovens bottom panel by removing the 2 screws in back and lifting up. Remove the nut from the flame spreader and you will see the ignitor. Now turn the oven on and look at the ignitor, does it glow. Even if it does, it needs to draw at least 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. Part number for the ignitor is 5303935066. Easy job. Catriver...post back.
