Igniters on all burners are clicking without any
One of the switches that turn on the spark when the burner is turned on has became stuck so even when the burner is turned off it still thinks its turned on.
Depending on your mechanical ability its not too hard to figure out which one it is. What ya need to do is remove the panel over the burner valves so ya can get to the switches which slip over the stem of the burner valves and remove them in the off position and use a meter set to measure continuity and check each of the 4 switches when in the off position and see which one has a circuit (continuity) when off..when you figure which one has continuity when off that will be the one that is causing the stove to spark when off. Be sure to check all 4 since more than 1 could be bad.
BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO THAT AND CHECK WHICH SWITCH IS BAD BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER TO THE STOVE
GENE This is a general picture of 3 different style spark switch looks like your's may be somewhat different but be similar in appearence.
The electronic panel related to oven and clock
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Your range has somehow been set in "sabbath" mode ( for the Jewish calendar I think...not the metal band, lol ) If you have the owners manual turn to the section referring to this an it should instruct how to reverse the setting.
All ranges do it somewhat differently, so I can't say exactly how on yours. This example is generic, hopefully it works. If you are unsuccessful let me know the exact model number and I'll see if I can locate it.
Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to activate Sabbath mode. Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to disable Sabbath mode.
Oven must be in BAKE mode before enabling SABBATH. "SAb" displays and flashes for 5 seconds. All pad inputs are disabled except for CANCEL and CLOCK pads.
This mode disables the normal 12 hour shutoff to allow operation of the bake mode for a maximum of 72 hours.
Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa.
Maytag double oven ignitor glows
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.
The broiler burner in top oven won't fire up
The broiler will not work until the oven is preheated and an internal timer (I believe 5 min) has counted down. This is the biggest complaint I have had with our Gemini I hope Maytag gets it right next time. (Use a propane torch for quick browning I know pros who do it often)
