You probably need to replace the the ignitor. Even though it glows red does not mean that it is working propery. If it does not draw at least 3.5 amps the gas valve will not open. This can be check with a amp meter.

SOURCE: Oven burner doesn't light

Replaced the ignitor on mine 10 mins ago.... Works like it's brand new. You have to remove the bake pan in the bottom of the stove, remove the drawer, and the sheet metal shield protection the connection. Entire job was 10 mins.

SOURCE: Maytag Gas Range.. Oven comes on then goes out in 20 seconds

Sures sounds like the ignitor is causing all the problem. Simply becasue the ignitor is lighting does not mean it is good. Your unit incorporates a flat style ignitor and it must draw 3.2 - 3.6 amps in order to fully open the oven safety valve. There are only two ways to verify this. The first and more professional way is to measure the amperage draw of the ignitor after it has been glowing for approximately 45 seconds. I feel certain you will fnd the draw 3.2 amps or lower. The second would be to make an intelligent guess and order part number 74007498 which is an ignitor for your oven. If we can help further feel free to respond.

Waiting to hear from you,

SOURCE: Maytag oven will not ignite

If its a square glow bar it must pull 3.5 apms to open the gas valve. Round ones pull 2.5 apms. even though the glow bar is on it must be real bright. Has it been taken over 45 second to light the oven. You will need some way to check the amps. If its getting enough amps the safety valve is bad.

We have a Maytag gas kitchen range. It's about 10 years old. When I have oven turned on while it is warming up and also when something is baking in it, gives off a "poof" sound every so often. ...


The igniter is probally on it's way out. You will likely start noticing it taking longer to cook or not reaching temp easily. The poof is the gas valve partially opening then the igniter finally ignites it. The flame is usually smaller or yellower.

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Whirlpool stove model #st387peyn1 oven won't heat. Broiler does work.Ignitor glows and after a while you hear a poof like it lite, but it did not.


When the igniter is getting weak, it will glow but not get hot enough to fully open the gas valve. If the gas valve opens partially a small amount of gas comes through the burner and you may smell it and eventually it may ignite with a "poof" like you describe. I suspect you just need to replace that igniter.

MY BROIL ELEMENT WON'T IGNITE ON MY MGS5870ADW MATAG GAS RANGE AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT PART TO ORDER. BACK ELEMENT OR IGNITER IS GLOWING RED.


It could be that the ignitor is weak and only partially heating which could be causing the gas control valve not to open and allowing the gas to flow into the broiler burner tube.

I would also suggest you see if you can smell gas to confirm that the gas supply valve is actually opening up. With the oven door closed, turn on the broiler and after 20-30 seconds of having the ignitor glowing red, turn off the broiler control and open the door and see if you can smell gas, if not it could be either a weak ignitor or a faulty gas control valve.

I would suggest that before you start ordering parts, you swap out the oven ignitor with the broiler ignitor to verify that the broiler ignitor is the problem. It could also be the broiler tube has a blockage of some sort possibly from cooking debris, that is preventing gas from flowing into the tube.

Here's a diagram for your unit along with the parts list.

Your ignitor is becoming defective. Even though it is glowing, it is not creating the proper resistance to "pop" the gas valve open. Instead, gas slowly seeps into the oven cavity until it finally ignites and causes a potentially dangerous situation. Call an experienced technician and have it checked.
