Maytag gas Oven GA347BXUWX

Our old Maytag is finally showing its age. The burners ignite and work fine. the Broiler ignites and works fine. The stove does nothing. Any ideas? I assume that the electronics are the problem and am looking for a parts dealer AND ADVICE for it

    Well, it actually turned out to be the stove ignitor, so thanks for your input.

Hi there,

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.

MY MAYTAG OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON WHEN I SET THE ELECTRONIC DIGITAL THERMOSTSTAT LIKE SAY I PROGRAM IT TO 350 DEGREES,,, NOTHING HAPPENS,,, BUT WHEN I GO TO SET THE BROILER THE BROILER WORKS JUST FINE,,, I...


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.

Let me know if I can help more--

Oven won't light.


Localwonder gave a more comprehensive answer, but I wanted to share my recent related experience too:
Same model: MGR5750BDW
Oven was not heating up, or would sometimes and not others. Broiler worked fine. The nice thing is that the broiler igniter and the oven igniter are the same part. So I swapped them until I could get a replacement part.
Before I did anything, I turned off the gas!
To take out the broiler igniter: there's one screw right near the front of the oven that holds the burner assembly in place. Remove that, gently pull the assembly off the gas nozzle off to the left. Then where the wires from the igniter go into the back wall, remove the screw that holds the little door, remove that little door, and then gently pull the wires through until the connector comes through the opening. I also found you can go behind the stove, remove the back panel (which is easy) and see the igniter's connector.
The oven one: remove the floor of the oven by lifting it at the back, and then lift it out towards the back of the oven. Then you can see the igniter at the back of the floor of the oven. remove the two mounting screws, and then gently pull the wires until the connector comes through the insulation.
The bad igniter looked like it had burned down to bare metal in a big patch...not sure if that's the actual problem, but in any event, I installed the good igniter in the bottom (gently pushing the reconnected connector through the insulation, and feeding as much of the wires down in there as well), and the bad igniter in the broiler position (since that was the easiest one to access and replace, it'll be easy enough to replace when I get the parts). Tested, and everything worked great. And I could watch the bad igniter light up, and never light, confirming that it was the igniter itself that was the problem.
The best part, for this stove anyway, -- the ONLY tool needed was a #2 phillips screwdriver. Really. All told, maybe an hour of work, nothing intense. And free -- so if they both worked, it would have spared me ordering a part that didn't need to be replaced!

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

Hotpoint oven glowbar not working


My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.

good luck be safe

Burners on gas stove work but oven and broiler not working


Most ovens, unless they have an electric igniter (does it go tick tick tick when plugged in and turned on? If so, it has an electic ignition.) have a pilot light. In order to keep gas from flowing out, and to prevent a possible explosion when the pilot light has gotten put out, they have an electric thermocouple on them that shuts off the gas when it gets cold. Plug the cord back in, and relight your pilot light by holding the lighter (I recommend a fireplace match or bbq lighter, not a cigarette lighter to prevent singed knuckle hairs!) over the thermocouple for a couple of minutes.

Oven fills with gas Maytag Appliance MGR5780BDQ


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.
