Oven was slow to get to temp and not holding temp

Thanks to previous posters, this seemed to be an igniter issue, and I found the idea of swapping the broiler igniter for the bottom one particularly good - I knew exactly what part was broken and how easy/hard the job would be prior to ordering. The part used snap in electric components, so the only work was in removing and re-installing the parts. Working in the oven was by FAR the most difficult part of the entire process.

oven would not heat up fully, smelled of gas.

Took off the top plate at the bottom of the oven, and the flame spreader, removed 2 screws on the igniter, pulled out the broiler tray and unplugged it. Took longer to get off the floor than it did to replace the part.

Igniter was not getting hot enough to allow burner to come on.

New parts matched up perfectly. Undid screws holding old igniter, hardest part of procedure because one screw was frozen and broke off. Pulled stove out and new igniter"s connector was identical. Pushed stove back into place and it lighted on the first try.

Oven Ignitor went to ignitor heaven.

  • Customer: Brian from Pittsburgh PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set

The repair was real easy, other than the old bolts which just turned in the sockets when trying to get them out. It might be a good idea to provide two nuts and bolts to negate this problem. I would not mind paying a dollar or two extra for two bolts and nuts. Other than that, the instructions were clear. Product arrived on time and I would absolutely use your services again. Oven is back to working great! Thank you!

Replaced appliance bulb in owen

  • Customer: Billy from Grand Prairie TX

Removed burnt bulb. On replacing the bulb I glued the bracket, retainer gasket and bulb cover together- I used only a small amount of glue-just enough to hold the three items together. You need to do this since the three items slip in your hand while you attempt to screw the bracket to the oven wall. Need my help, email me @ Lexidog999@tx.rr.com

  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I NOTICED THAT THE IGNITOR WOULD GLOW BUT THE STOVE WOULDN'T LIGHT - I GOT THE MODEL NUMBER OF THE STOVE AND GOOGLED THE MAYTAG MODEL NUMBER. CAME UPON YOUR WEBSITE AND REALIZED THAT 94% OF THE TIME THE PROBLEM WAS THE AMPS WERE NOT ENOUGH TO LIGHT THE STOVE. I LOOKED AT ALL OF THE STORIES ON HOW EASY IT WAS TO FIX. I ORDERED THE PART AND RECEIVED IT WITHIN 3 DAYS. I OPENED THE DOOR PART WAY AND LIFTED IT STRAIGHT UP TO REMOVE IT. I PULLED OUT THE BOTTOM BROILER PLATE BY GRABBING THE BACK ON PULLING UP. I UNDSCREWED THE WING NUT OF THE FLAME BAR AND HAD EASY ACCESS TO THE IGNITER. I REMOVED THE TWO NUTS FROM THE OLD IGNITER. UNPLUGGED THE IGNITER FROM THE EASY ACCESS DOOR FROM THE BACK AND PLUGGED IN THE NEW IGNITER. REPLACED THE ACCESS DOOR AND ATTACHED THE IGNITER WITH THE TWO NUTS. PUT THE FLAME BAR BACK ON, PUT THE BROILER PLATE BACK ON, PUT THE DOOR BACK ON, PLUGGED IN THE STOVE TURNED IT ON AND SUCCESS. IT WAS SO EASY. I KNOW IN OUR AREA I WOULD HAVE PAID NEAR $200 FOR A SERVICE TECHNICIAN TO COME OUT AND DO WHAT I DID IN APPROX. 20 MINUTES AND $50 FOR THE PART. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU WEBSITE TO HELP US NOT SO TALENTED APPLIANCE REPAIR HOMEOWNERS.

Oven wouldn't light

Same as the other entries in this section.
The only thing I would add is a hint for removing the broiler igniter. As you can see from the oven igniter, the wires connect with a plug. For the top igniter, the broiler, the plug goes through the insulation and then through a hole in the rear panel of the oven. So, when you pull on it, you will think it is stuck or the wire is pulled taut. That is because the plug hangs up on the rear panel.
Stick your finger through the square hole that you can see inside the oven, and follow the wire through the insulation. You will feel the small round hole in the back. You have to wiggle the wire up and around a bit to get the plug to fit through the hole. Then you will have the slack you need to change the plugs.
That way, you don't have to pull the whole oven out and break all the caulking seals.

First I removed the two screws that held the old element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires.
I replaced the element with the new one and tucked the connector in the insulation. Additional insulation came with the kit. I replaced the two screws that held the element in placed. Oven worked perfectly

igniter glowed, but oven would not light or stay lit

The igniter was located in the bottom of the stove or broiler section. It was hard to get at, but with a little trial and error I figured out how to take the plate between the oven and broiler. Now the igniter was easily accessable. 2 screws on the igniter bracket, then simply unplug the electrical. The igniter supplied had the identical electrical plug (plug and play). The new igniter works like a charm-oven ignites in about 15 seconds. Piece of cake!!!!!
