Gas 5 Burner Maytag Gemini Model MGR6875ADW

The issue started with the back left rear burner ignitor did not stop clicking when knob was turned past the ignition point after the burner was lite. Turned that burner off and tried to light the center burner and when knob position was in the ignition point a flash came out from under the knob and tripped the circut breaker. Reset the cb and tried to light the center burner and do not here any clicking and the burner will not light via the knob. The original back left burner that appeared to have a problem with the ignitor now will not ingite with the knob and no clicking sound is heard when knob is used. They will operate with a match. The other three ignite normally. Any thoughts anyone.

SOURCE: Problem with getting burner to light.

All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

SOURCE: ignitors on all burners are not working

Hi, when any of the knobs is turned to the light position, all burners will spark. That being said, if one or more of the knobs is not switching the spark module, the problem is the switch mounted on the shaft of that burner valve. You need to replace the defective switch or you could turn on one of the good burners (to make the clicking occur) and then light the burner you really want.

If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.

My Maytag Gemini Gas Range works fine as far as the four burners, the bake on the top and bottom oven, but the broiler on the top oven does not work. Is this a pilot issue? I really appreciate the help,...


If the broiler burner is not coming on it may be a bad ignitor or the ignitor may not be getting power. Observe the ignitor when you turn in on ans see if it glows at all. If not then test for power to the ignitor if you have power and not glowing or lighting replace the ignitor. If it glows but does not light the ignitor may just be weak replace it.

Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking


Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

I GOT THE BURNER IGNITOR WET WHILE CLEANING STOVE...IT KEEPS CLICKING...WHAT DO I DO


It will stop once it drys out. The best bet is to unplug the electrical power cord and let it dry overnight. Plug it back in the morning and it should be fine. The moisture is most likely in one of the switches just behind the knobs.

Hi, there is a switch on each burner control knob shaft. These switches wear out and are easy to replace once you remove the panel over the knob area. Each switch has 2 wires plugged into it and costs around 5 to 10 dollars. Any switch causes all burner electrodes to spark. Good luck,

Same problem here - and I have read about others with this problem. Usually blamed on moisture getting into the control unit ( which is under the backmost burner knob). I did not have a spill on the cooktop, nor was I "over zealous" cleaning. Looks like a bad design. Waiting to hear from the technician how much THIS is going to cost me...

When one burner knob is turned to the light position, all burners will spark. Once the burner lights, just move the knob slightly so it is no longer in the light position and all sparking will stop.

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie


Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

First of all- when you turn any ONE of the burner knobs to "ignite" all FOUR burners will spark/click. This is normal. If you're getting a spark from the ignitors when all knobs are set to "off" then you most likely either got some moisture into one or more of the switches below the knobs (sometimes they will dry out and be fine after a while, but I have seen them burn-up/melt/arc too) OR one or more of the switches is stuck/shorted. Good luck and hope this helps.
Unplug the range before working on it and don't attempt anything you're unfamiliar or uncomfortable with.
