    All four stove top burners no longer ignite. The ignitor does not clicking. The oven still heats. What part(s) needs replacing?

  • camrew Oct 16, 2008

    I kinda have the same problem as this, except the oven and broiler won't light either. Model number is MGS5770ADB. The catch is, it is an intermitant problem. The digital display still works, the buttons still work. The oven light still works. But over the past three days ... sometimes the burners ignite themselves, sometimes I have to do it manually. Sometimes I can use the oven, sometimes I can't. I've downloaded a wiring diagram, on the recommendation of another website, thinking that something is loose. Any suggestions?

    I also have a MAYTAG (Slide-in) Gas Oven & all other burners, elements work except the bottom BAKE burner.
    We checked the 'ignitor' issue from the previous post & it is RED HOT almost immediately.
    My husband lit a match at the edge of the burner and NOTHING??
    It appears the gas is not reaching that particular burner which makes sense considering the fact that we smell GAS.
    What do you think the problem is ~ we really cannot afford to have a service call but need our oven??
    Thank you so much in advance for your help :)

    My ignitor clicks and I see a spark but it does not light the burner. The other three work fine.

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, 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.

    "Inappropriate!?" I took the time to look up your model number, give you precise instructions on WHERE the spark module is located, then went a step further by looking up the information for to provide you with a part number and the website where you can order it. What more did you want? The last line I submitted stated that if you needed further assistance, to let me know.

    THERE IS A GLOW BAR UNDER THE BOTTOM TRAY LIKE THE ONE FOR THE BROILER.Lift the tray from the back towards you and you will see the bad glow bar. Replace it and your problem will go away and preheat in 5 minutes. Want to test before you replace it.Take the one from the top broiler --my 5750 was the same one.

I have a maytag gemini gas stove three igniters work but won't light the burners. One igniter won't spark

Replace the "igniter switch assembly". The igniter's are getting a weak spark and since you have one that will not spark at all, this is the usual problem. Here is the assembly to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

I could not make that model number ya posted work but your question sounds to me like that dude is a direct spark stove. If your top burners are lighting then you have a good spark module. That means the oven control is not getting confirmation of ignition and has tried several times and finally locked out. If it do lock out it stays locked out for a while. Also ignition is not instantaneous and you will have to allow for the process to do it's thang.
I wrote a tip for these stoves and included a service manual HERE.

None of my stove top burners will spark to ignite

There is an ignition module that sparks when it calls for lighting. This module could have a loose connection or be dead.

Burner igniter won't click or work

This is an easy problem to fix. If your repair man is correct and it is the spark module and not a wire harness problem you can pick up a spark module as sears for about $37 and it only takes a couple of minutes to install. Just pull off the back panel and replace the module. This is a repair that anyone can do. I would recommend unplugging the unit before replacing.

All 4 ignators are spaking with the contrtols on off position on my GE JGP328 cook top

It's the Switch Harness. Do not remove the stove and disconnect it from the gas. Turn the gas off under the stove. Take off the: knobs and the plate; burners; hxw screws. Pull burners out and disconnect igniter burners. Lift the top of the oven off. The Switch Harness is on the right, under where the knobs are located. Replace the Switch Harnes.
