To answer the question fully, I'm gonna need the model number. Pull out the bottom drawer, and the model should be located on the side of the frame or on the drawer itself. Might even be behing the oven at the top, should be a metal plate that flips up.
First I want to commend you for your giving us good information to start with! So-- we know we have gas, and we know the Broiler Valve and ignitor works-- Good observation!
However-- we have no ignitor (No bright red/Yellow glow)-- like you go for the Broiler-- right?
Well, we can NOT get ignition on the main burner-- unless we have the ignitor for the main burner getting hot, and then the gas valve to that burner can light, and give you heat...
Soo-- Likely we have an ignitor failure for the Main burner---
Do you have a warranty on the stove? Do you have a service person qualified to tackle this job? There will be electrical work, and parts obtainment issues to deal with now--- I suggest you call the local service people for this stove, and tell that that you need to have the main gas burner ignotor replaced for this stove model number-- and see what they tell you.
The beeping sound is a warning because the oven is in lock condition. The oven is not faulty, and the code is not 5AB, but SAB.
SAB means that the oven is in Sabbath mode, and the control board will be locked for 72 hours with SAB on display.
If power is disconnected a new 72 hours cycle will start.
Push and hold the Clock button for about 10 seconds, that will reset SAB mode.
If that does not work leave the oven connected and off for 72 hours. If the oven does not unlock after three days, then the electronic control may be stuck in SAB mode because it is faulty, in that case contact the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.
If this is a newer stove (that does not have a pilot light...and most newer stoves don't), you shouldn't have to light the oven manually (if you think you need to, you have a faulty stove). Manual ignition of a stove is also potentially dangerous as larger amounts of gas in the oven can cause small explosions. Most modern gas stoves use a very hot glowbar to both regulate the amount of gas entering the oven and igniting that gas. If you have a faulty glowbar, it will not allow enough gas to enter the oven and may not be hot enough to ignite the little gas that does enter (that is why you may smell gas). It sound like you may need to replace the glowbar (or visually inspect the glowbar to see if it gets red hot. If it does, it may still be faulty (not drawing enough power). The only way to test this is to use a clamp-on ampmeter and test the current flow through the wires feeding the glowbar. They should read between 3.1 and 3.7 amps. Anything lower means the glowbar should be replace. If you cannot see the glowbar get red hot, you have an electrical problem or a circuit board problem.
My Maytag , advanced Cooking system , super capacity gas stove has a problem with the oven. It looks like it lights, but most often, doesn't heat up, and I can sometimes smell gas. Anyone know what what cause this?
if it's just the stove, it's not the control board because the rest of your stove work. if it's just the oven, it most likely the thermostat, blower or the heat probe. go to www.reliableparts.com to get parts for it.
