The ignitor went out on one of the burners of the gas range

  • Customer: Ed from Overland Park, KS
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Remove the burner cover to reach the burner assembly. From the top of the cooktop you will see 2 screws holing the burner assembly. Using a T drive (6 point screwdriver)remove both screws and the burner assembly will come out of the cook top. Using a phillips head screw driver, remove the old ignitor from the burner assembly. Mine was galled up, so I had to use some penetrating oil and let it sit for a half hour. I then used a hammer and a phillips head screwdriver to tap the screw as I twisted to un-tightened the screw. Once it broke loose, I placed the new ignitor and reassembled the burner into the stove.

removed oven door, unscrewed 2 screws on front of plate covering burner at bottom of oven. Undid wing nuts on tent-like cover, unscrewed 2 screws at back of burner (igniter "hiding" under left back side). Pulled oven away from wall (yuch, where did that stuff come from?), unscrewed 2 screws of bottom plate, undid connector to old igniter, fished wires with connector from new igniter, plugged them in. Attached new igniter to bottom of burner, rescrewed. Put all screws and parts back in correct places. Cleaned oven door before putting it back on. Turned oven on........baked bread!! Hooray!

1 Pane of Inner Safety Glass

It was necessary to take the decorative glass and metal safety panel off using a screwdriver in order to get to the frame that holds the safety glass. It was hard to slide the new glass into the frame without help from a second person to hold the other pane in place.This was an easy repair to make I would just suggest having 2 people to hole things in place while replacing screws.

A crack in the porcelain caused the spark to not go in the proper direction, therefore the burner would not ignite. To have the job done by a professional would have cost $200.00 plus parts. Remove two phillips screws lift the burner out then remove the one phillips screw that held the electrode. Then with the new electrode in place reverse the previous steps.

igniter would spark, but not light flame

  • Customer: Roy from Olympia, WA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Installed new igniter, but would still not light flame. Determined it was a design flaw. On our range, the 2 right hand burners have "lift-off tops" that are farther away vertically from the igniter than the smaller left hand burners. I placed asmall nut from a nut-bolt assembly on top of the igniter, and now the igniter sparks higher to the "lift-off top" and the flame ignites everytime. Without that added heigt, the igniter just sparks uselessly around the base of the burner. There should be a higher igniter designed for the higher distance between the igniter and that removable top. Good luck with your own modification.

Removed grills, lower burner cover and burner inlet cover. I then pulled burner out far enough until plug for igniter was exposed. Unclipped wire connection by squeezing in retainer clip and then pulled apart. Pulled burner tube/igniter assembly out and removed two igniter retaining screws. Then reinstalled in reverse order.

The screws to remove the burners were badly corroded and we had to drill them out. One went fairly easy, but the other one when we were trying to remove cracked the glass cook top. I now will have to replace that another day. It is around $340.

Spark Ignitor replacement

  • Customer: grant from aurora, CO
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Screws holding burner base and ignitor were plain steel. If they had been stainless they probably would not have rusted in so tight. One in the base broke off, and the one holding the ignitor could not be removed, even with heat from a torch. I ended drilling it out and re-tapping the hole. If I wasn't mechanically inclined I would have had to give up and order a new burner base.

The lower oven would not heat up, the temperature stayed at 100. I'm pretty sure the same instructions apply for the upper oven. This is a pretty straightforward repair with a couple of minor bear traps. 1) Remove the oven door by simply lifting it up off the hinges. Not absolutely necessary, but helpful to get your head inside the oven. Not a bad idea to vacuum out the oven floor at this stage. 2) Remove the two Philips head screws at the front of the burner pan cover - the screws are at the very bottom inside the oven. 3) The pan cover lifts straight out of the oven, set it to the side. 4) Remove the burner cover held down by either one or two wing nuts - my oven only had one wing nut from the factory - nice job Maytag on your quality control!! 5) Loosen the screw holding down the burner cover in the far back right corner. This cover is a steel rectangular box that is a shield for the burner gas / air connection. Turn the box around to expose the burner end. 6) Remove the two screws that hold down the burner assembly. One screw is at the very front of the oven. The other screw is on the left side of the burner at the rear. Do NOT remove the pan held down by 6 or more screws. On my oven, the left rear screw was stripped. It stripped in a very weird way that took a long time to remove it. The threads inside the metal were fine, but the threads that had been exposed to heat were brittle and fell off. That meant the screw backed out about 3/4 of the way and then kept turning. This is where pliers come in handy. It will take some pulling up and turning with pliers to get those stripped screws out. I didn't want to cut off the screw because the cut out part would fall back into the lower pan. 7) Pull the oven out from the wall and unplug it from the electicity. Remove the 3 screws holding the left rear metal panel in place. There are two screws along the far left side and one down lower on the right. The panel is connected to the one next to it with tabs. 8) Unplug the ignitor. There is a white fireproof wire that comes up from the bottom of the oven that plugs into a white automotive style clip connector. Push the tab to release the clip and unplug the wire. 9) Wrap some stray wire or string around the plug to use as a pull wire when reassembling the oven. 10) Go back to the front of the oven and lift out the burner, be careful not wo pull your pull wire all the way out of the oven. Untie the pull wire. 11) Remove the two philips head screws that hold the ignitor to the burner bracket. 12) Reassemble! Attach the new ignitor with the two screws. 13) Push the wire into the lower part of the oven. 14) Go to the back of the oven and pull the wire through the oven wall. 15) Drop the burner in, making sure it mates up with the gas tube in the back right. 16) Flip the rectangular burner shield back and tighten it down. 16) Replace the two screws that hold down the burner tube, front and rear. 17) Replace the burner shield with the wing nut(s). 18) Replace the burner cover, or floor of the oven. 19) Go to the back of the oven, plug in the ignitor wire. 20) Replace the rear panel cover and secure it with the three screws. JOB FINISHED! Plug in the stove and push it back. The oven takes a few minutes to start heating, you should be able to see orange glow around the slots in the floor of the oven.
