Question about Kitchen Ranges
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I`ll start by saying most of the time it is due to a faulty hot surface ignitor, but better if we get a model number first.
If that isn`t an option and yours has a broil ignitor as well as a bake...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 swap 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.
