Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work" the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner is likely the problem.

Here's what you can try to varify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined.

**Turn off the breaker or unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

if the boiler has the same ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swape the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you have a diagnosis and can purchase another.

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case.

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number 12400035, That is the most common ignitor and is for Maytag, but built by "Norton" for gas oven`s.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

GE Profile Stove baking option not working


Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at www.fixyourboard.com.

Magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot


Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Oven bake ignites usually have lifetime 5-7 years. If igniter glows but gas not came in - replace igniter. Same with broil igniter.

hi there,

if it's just the stove, it's not the control board because the rest of your stove work. if it's just the oven, it most likely the thermostat, blower or the heat probe. go to www.reliableparts.com to get parts for it.
