Question about Maytag Ovens
When I start my oven- When gas comes on- It has a high pitch whistling noise
I HAVE A NEW PROPANE OVEN THAT I CONVERTED TO NATURAL GAS. NOW I GET A WHISTLE WHEN I USE THE OVEN ONLY. DO NOT GET A WHISTLE WHEN I USE THE TOP BURNERS.

Most likely the ignitor needs replaced. Checking it with a meter will verify. If it is OPEN then replace the ignitor. IF it SHORTED then the gas safety valve will be bad also.

This is because the ignitor is starting to fail. The ignitor is probally just barely reaching the correct amp draw and soon will not light at all. For a free video on performing an amp draw test go to www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the testing procedure.

If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing) - check the amperage on
the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style -
amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If
than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not
come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage
110-120v AC. Faulty gas valve is uncommon, but still a
small possibility. Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528,
WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.
