Unplug the unit
open the door locate thee four screws and remove
remove the door and the front panel
you will now have access to the ignitor
be careful it is very fragile
iif the ignitor glos it is ok
you can test it by closeing the door with the frame off and turn the unit on
does it glow? if no more than likley ignitor is bad
if it glows and no flame you have bad ignitor coils
let me know if this helps

My Maytag gas range oven is not working. The broiler works okay.


Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!
