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.

I am so gald I found Parts select. I was going to order a Gas valve for $140. All the comments said the problem was a bad igniter. even though the igniter was glowing bright it was not drawing enough pawer to open the gas valve. I purchased the igniter installed it in 15 minutes and my oven works like new.

Followed the excellent instructions on your web site. I removed the oven burner assembly to make it easier to install the new igniter. The connector on the new igniter matched the one in my oven exactly. It helps to have the oven light on!

There was a lot of trepidation about starting this project. What if this is the wrong part? What if I hook it up wrong? What if the gas line is not properly secured when I'm done? This is why it took my 6 months to start this project. I hesitantly looked up my product number online and partselect.com returned three of the top ten results so I clicked it. One of the best moves I've made. When the product was shipped, I received an email with a video attached that explained how to install the igniter. This is what set partselect.com apart from everyone else and differentiated my experience from a "maybe i'll look around more next time" to "I will use partselect for all of my appliance part needs from now on" experience. Thank you for the quality customer care.

Oven takes very long to heat, sometimes did not reach temperature, gives smell of gas

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Remove oven door and bottom panel. Remove metal shield above the burner. Unscrew old igniter from brace. All this was straightforward. Then I found the old (long) igniter did not have a convenient plug that I could pull through the hole in the back of the oven. So I had to clip the two wires to remove the old igniter and stripped the insulation of these wires. Then I clipped the two wires of the new igniter since, unfortunately, I could not use the convenient plastic connector. I stripped the wires of the new igniter and connected both to the previously stripped wires coming through the hole from the back of the oven. I twisted on the ceramic wire nuts provided. It took 10-15 minutes or so to be confident these wire nuts wouldn't just fall off on their own. Then I stuffed the wire nut connections back through the hole, stuffed in all the insulation provided (necessary for the new (short) igniter!) and screwed the new igniter to the old brace. (I didn't need the new brace supplied or two long wires supplied.) Total time was about 70 minutes. The oven works well! This experience is much better than finding a repairman, scheduling the visit, etc.
