Maytag MGS5770ADB Service Manual?
« on: December 19, 2011, 01:30:56 PM »
I'm looking for a service manual for a Maytag MGS5770ADB range.

The over ignitor comes on, but the burner does not light.

Most likely a weak ignitor.  If you have a clamp on ammeter, you can check it.  It should be drawing at least 3.2 amps.

From what I have been reading that's what I was thinking too.
I don't have a ammeter so I'm just going to order one and try it.
Are they easy to replace? Looks like just two screws hold it in place and unplug the wires.

If it looks dim orange it is bad. It should be bright and hard to look at. Keep your hands off the carborundum filament. Skin oils make it die fast. Don't drop it or bang it around.
