Maytag oven is not heating up - but stove burners work fine

Hello

I have had a Maytag MGR5765QDW Gas Range since 2004. Just today, I went to preheat the oven to cook a dish and the oven would not heat up at all. I cancelled and tried again a few times and nothing happened.

The range burners are working just fine. Any help/guidance is greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: My Gas stove takes over an hour to preheat sometimes.

Would be helpful to know brand and model. However, most gas ovens use a glowbar mechanism that regulates the amount of gas released into the oven. The glowbar also ignites the gas (and usually stays on all the time the oven is on). Often, the glowbar fails to heat up sufficiently and, as a result, doesn't allow the oven to release sufficient gas. If this happens, you may also smell small amounts of gas in the kitchen. The glowbar is hot enough to ignite the limited amount of gas being released into the oven. This is probably why the oven heats up but heats up very slowly. It's also possible that the heat being experienced in the oven is being generated from the glowbar itself without any gas being ignited. If this is the case however, it is unlikely that your oven to get very hot at all.

The way to test to see if they glowbar is failing is to test the amperage traveling to the glowbar when the oven is on. You can do this using a "clamp on meter" (purchased at any Home Depot or Lowes). Depending on the particular kind of glowbar you have, it should read above a certain amperage (in my case the reading was 2.7 amps and it should have been between 3.2 and 3.7 amps). I ordered a new glowbar from www.appliancepartspro.com and installed it myself (very easy). It fixed the problem. Here is a link that explains it pretty well (http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_ignition_systems.shtml#glow). Hope this helps.

Frigidaire electric range oven and top burners wont come on


It sounds like you only have one side of the 220v current coming into the range. I suggest checking the outlet feeding the range for proper power. The problem could actually be in your circuit breaker, only sending power via one of the conductors.
