Maytag Ovens Intermittent Lighting
« on: April 09, 2012, 09:24:36 AM »
I never know whether the oven is going to work or not. This is happening on both the upper and lower oven. The display starts flashing when you push bake and then eventually stops, but the oven does not light. You cannot hear the electronic ignition clicking. It's a model MGR6875ADW if that helps.

Check the amperage of your ignitors. They should be pulling at least 3.2 amps.

Check the ignitors as tgoods suggested to make sure you don't have a problem with them first, but I think you will find the problem to be with the clock/control panel, part number: AP4396536

If the ignitor is dim orange that is a good chance it is weak. It should be so bright it is hard to look at.
