Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a 12 year old self cleaning Maytag Gas Stove with a crack in the aluminium gas tube going from the right front valve to the burner. I noticed a crack in it when I lifted the stove top to fix a loose knob. I can't find a repair service who can locate that tubing and fittings. Any advice where I can find one? Thank you, Bob Galipeau Lindsay, Ontario, K9V 5T3

I have 48 " 6 burner stove natural gas.Stove is


the glass in the ovens should not crack when self clean is used. it could be that there was a minut crack in the glass or a build up of moisture in between to door windows that expanded at the extra heat but this should be brought up with the manufacturer for replacement.

I hope this was useful.

The oven burner will not ignite.


Because the glowbar is glowing does not necessarily make it good.
Turn off the gas to the stove. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader. This gives you access to the glow bar and gas valve.
Put a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar. Turn the oven control on to BAKE.
If the glowbar reads 3 amps or less,replace the glowbar ignitor.
If the glowbar reads good,check the burner tube for a white ash buildup. It can be cleaned with a wire brush. Look closely near the glowbar section of the burner.
Check all the wire connections for the gas valve.
If the glowbar is good and the ash deposits are gone and the oven still will not ignite,the next step is to replace the gas safety valve.

Maytag oven doesn't fire, but stovetop burners work fine


This will sound crazy but I had to work through it on my own stove a few years ago. The ignitor (glow tube) was getting hot but the oven would not owrk. When investigating the problem I found that the gas valve will only open when the ignitor pulls a specific amperage or draw of current. As the ignitor ages it pu;;s a reduced draw of current. This causes you to be fooled by the glow nut no gas. Replace your ignitor and your oven will begin to work again!
You can get ignitors easily online by doing a search for "appliance parts" and then entering the model number of your stove. Look for ignitor and you will be good to go. Also check out a few different sites as the prices of the parts can vary quite a bit.

Oven takes a long time to heat up.


Hello. To go 12 years without issues is excellent. Now however you will have to make a decision to repair or replace. Be sure to get a firm estimate before you repair and compare that to the cost of replacement.

here is what may be causing your problem:

Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

GE XL44 oven does not heat


12 years old? If it is a gas rnge yo need to get a gas technician out to fix it. I would probably say it s time for a new one. Hers is a couple of things to think of when getting a new stove. 1) Everyone wants a self clean. But 90% never self clean. can save up to $200 w/o that option. 2) 80% off people buy a stovebased on looks. A stove may not be pretty but work just as good as one that is.
