    If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'surface hot' light then either the element has failed or a connection to the element has fallen off.
    If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'element on' light
    then either the corresponding control switch has failed or a connection to the switch has
    fallen off.
    It may be possible the lamp has failed..although never have seen one fail yet.

Elements and light in stove work but clock and stove do


The issue would have to be in the clock or the power wire going to the clock.

The clock controls the power to the oven elements and there are no fuses or other devices to control the elements.

Having trouble cleaning splatters off Ingis Glass Top Stove.


Use DeBruce Polish- a true multi-surface cleaner. There is a transfer of particulates from pan to glass surface aided by the heat. The cleaner will remove this "staining". Also use on stainless steel rubbing with the grain- this is the one product that truely cleans the surface. Follow up with baby oil or a stainless steel "polish that is oil based to "seal"the surface.

The hot surface indicator light remains ON all the time.


Your hot surface indicator light might have a short that causes it to stay on all of the time. If you can, try unplugging it for a little while and plugging it back up. If the light is still on, you have a short. You can still use the stove, but the light staying on will not be any help to you.

Maytag stove MGS5770ADB - Burners will not light - ignators


The spark module should be behind the rear panel of the range, or behind the bottom drawer, mounted on the interior back wall. If you go to searspartsdirect.com, the part is listed as item number 22 under the "Gas Controls" heading. The part number is 74004283. Just type in your model number and follow the links on the next page. There are helpful drawings to assist you. If in doubt, trace the wires from the the surface igniters and they all will lead back to the spark module. I hope this information helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
