Maytag Gemini gas top oven does not work.

My Maytag Gemini gas top oven does not work. The broil works but when any temperature is inputted the oven does not respond. I believe the temperature sensor is bad but I'm not sure. Can you help? Also is it possible and or advisable to switch the lower oven sensor with the upper to confirm that it is bad?

You probably need to replace the baking igniter, (Igniter,bake burner
Part Number: AP4102011 made by MAYTAG).

I tested the igniter function by (CAREFULLY) jerry rigging a bridge to wire the BAKE igniter to the BROILER controls. (Push/click plugs accessible by opening up the stove back) Testing the broiler controls this way the bake element remained cold. I then did the same test but connected the BROILER igniter to the BAKE controls and got a good glow. This indicates that the controls work but the Bake igniter's faulty!

You can access the bake igniter by removal of 2 screws at the front at the platform just inside the top oven. The broil and bake igniters appear to be identical but the push/click plugs are reversed at the back of the stove. (hence the CAREFUL jerry rigged wiring bridge.) The parts and wiring are pretty simple and visual once you get the covers off. Opening up the stove back is just a matter of removing several screws. UNPLUG the stove before you work. If you test as I described, make all connections while UNPLUGGED and then plug it in only for the brief test. Unplug again while disconnecting/reconnecting. Hope this helps.

Bottom oven on Magtag Gemini burning bottoms of everything


when you set oven on bake the broil element comes on too,set the bottom oven on broil and see if the element gets hot,if not,unplug the machine or kill the power going to it,remove the element and check it with a meter to see if the element is bad,if so change out broil element if element is good you could have a broken wire or bad clock assy.there's a computer board with the clock that everything runs through,hopefully you have a bad element,if the element is coming on next thing to check is the sensor,this tells the computer how hot it is so it will turn the elements on and off,if you look behind the top panel in the back i think the paperwork is in a plastic pouch,it will tell you how to read out the sensor,i think it's 1080 ohms,or you can read out the sensor on the top oven and then check the bottom sensor and hopefully it will be a bad broil element or sensor and not the clock assy. hope this helps.

This is probably a problem with the wiring outside of the control. To confirm this, check for continuity on the bake and broil relays upon activation of the broil function. If the the broil relay activates and the bake relay does not then your problem lies outside off the control board. I am familiar with troubleshooting Maytag appliances as I work for a company that repairs appliance timers.

My top oven on the maytag "gemini" doesn't work! it is a gas oven.


1) Confirm if its just the bake or both bake and broil that doesn't work. 2) If its just the bake you will most likely need to replace the bake ignitor. 3) If its both you need to test for voltage output from the electronic control to the ignitors.
