Question about Maytag MGS5870 Gas Kitchen Range
Gas stovetop works, broiler burner lights, electric coil in oven works. Bottom burner in oven became sporatic, now doesn't light. We know only from strong gas smell since oven heats (slowly) from electric coil. Should oven "floor" be removed to inspect igniter? How? Thanks in advance - Happy New Year! Bob
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.

If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
