Based on user comments it seemed like my problem was being caused by a faulty igniter. I didn't do any voltage or continuity checks like some of the other comments said, although that route was provide a definite yes or no regarding the cause. For instructions, just watch the video. They are dead on. The screws holding your igniter onto the burner assembly may be stripped so you might have to buy replacements or use spares. I replaced the factory sheet metal screws with 10-24 machine screws, nuts, and washers I had laying around the house. After reassmebly, I tested the oven and it lit right up and stayed burning until it reached temperature. My wife baked a test batch of cookies the next day and they were delicious.

I was a little intimadated as I hadn't tried any type of repair like this before. My oven is almost 20 years old so the ignitor was hard wired; there wasn't any plug. I wasn't able to remove the burner assembly so I had to do all my work inside the oven. I had to cut off the plug and hard wire it to the oven. It works great now. All I noticed was that the oven temperature is higher than what I set it at.

I found that the igniter would glow but the burner would not light. I was not sure what part I needed so I went searching the internet and fortunately found "Part Select". Your trouble shooting guide not only told me what part I should buy but demonstrated how to do the repair with a very helpful video. Thank you PartSelect for the the excellent customer service!

Since I had never done anything like this, I watched your video twice. The oven door and racks came out easily. The wire connectors had burned, fusing the plastic parts. I cut them off and spent more time looking for a wire stripper than on the repair. The new igniter looked just like my 1993 oven part. Works great. Be SURE to unplug and turn off gas before starting!

Called a repairman who came to the house to check the oven and stated it could be one of 3 things but he was not sure what it would be. Stated 2 of the parts would be $200 and the third would be a rebuilt part costing $400. At his suggestion we ordered a new oven. However, before it came in the old oven started working so we cancelled the order. When it would not light a few weeks later, we went to the Maytag website and was directed to PartSelect. We found the list of problems, located the part we needed and received it within 2 days. We watched the video on the PartSelect site on how to install it. We paid the repairman $80 for showing up and he had no idea what to repair. We paid $42.28 total to repair it ourselves. Thank you!! We would recommend your services to anyone before calling for professional help!!

Igniter failed after 22 years

I first looked online at a video on how to replace the igniter prior to recieving the part. The part arrived 2 days after I ordered it (Christmas Day) and was an exact replacement. Taking the oven apart was the most difficult issue since there was some grease missed in the last cleaning plus a couple very tight screws. The igniter unplugged easily and reinstalled without cutting/splicing any wires. Oven was back together and fired up within 20 minutes. Outstanding service and would highly recommend PartSelect.
