If it were set for propane it wouldnt light most likely you have to adjust the gas regulator valve which is usually found in back of the drawer or along the back of the machine there is a small set screw inside the regualtor valve by turning this screw you decrease or increase the amount of gas flow I have also seen some rare occasions that the screw is missing or not able to be turned in this instance you would have to buy a new gas regulator if you have any further quesstions message me back the valve is noted in this diagram click here http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fX2904488-00002.png as part number 20 and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations oh and btw that model number you gave comes out as a magic chef if yours is a maytag please recheck the model number and message me back the valve would still look the same and still does the same thing but might be in a different area Thanks Rick

Hi, I have a Maytag super capacity plus free standing stove. I think the past owners refitted it for propane. However, when I use the oven I can hear it turning off and on with the propane. Also, I smell...


My advice is to get a professional person to check this out. If you smell propane then there has to be a leak of gas. It could kill you if you don't get it repaired right way. Large flames mean you may have the wrong orifices in it.

When stove is on a yellowish orange flame comes from burner.This has not occured until now. We own this viking oven for about 10 yrs without any issue whatso ever. Can you help to resolve this issue


You need to replace the burner if you want blue flame. Since its 10 years old, it's about time to replace the burner with similar size and shape. Old burner have big hole causing yellowish flame compare to new one.
I hope I solve your problem.

I have an Old Sears general Electic gas range and oven. It is used often and on for hours a day. Lately there has been less of a gas flow not allowing the oven to regulate proper temp. Is there a way to...


You should try cleaning the orifice first. Actually before you do that, if you can see the flames on the oven this simple check will determine a cleaning. Turn oven on and look at the flame, if you have propane it should be light blue at the base a little darker blue in the middle and have a little orange tip. If you have natural gas it should be almost all blue with maybe a slight tint of yellow in the center of the flame. If the flame looks like it is almost all orange. It needs to be cleaned. I can assist with the cleaning also, but confirm with this test first. Please rate answer accordingly!! Thank you

Hi! I am converting my Maytag oven to propane from natural gas. I've flipped the cap at the main (n to lp) and snugged down all the orifices at the four burners, so far so good. But I am not sure if the...


Hi Kim,
First of all, read and follow all the safety instructions in your installation and operations booklets.
If Maytag recommend that only a certified gas fitter should do this conversion, then follow the advice.
If you are a certified gas fitter you would know the answer.
There are too many variables to take into account for this type of conversion like altitude, propane pressure regulation, age and wear of the stove, state of repair of all supply pipework, proximity to open flames in the area like water heater pilot lights. Leaking propane is heavier than air and will collect at the lowest part of the home like the basement where the open flames might be.
So my best advice is to ask a certified/ticketted gas fitter to do the job or check what you have done and ensure that everything complies with all local codes.
"If in doubt don't" is great kindergarten advice for everything which is potentially risky.
I hope this helps,
jenni.

What do I change when I go from propane gas to natural gas on my Maytag mgr5870bdw Do I change something or do I adjust something? HELP ! Chuck


You will need to change the gas orifice for the type of gas you'll be using. You also may have to change the gas regulator, but you should check the installation manual for details.

You can also contact Maytag by calling 1-800-688-9900 to get the exact part numbers you'll need to make the conversion correctly.

Hope you found this helpful and best regards!
