The broiler for my Maytag gas range does not work at all. However, the oven works perfectly. I have ordered the oven ignitor part, which seems to be the same regardless if the oven or broiler ignitors are broken. My question is: Where and how do I install the broiler ignitor? I watched the video for the oven ignitor but do not see any information regarding the broiler ignitor replacement. Thank you
ANSWER Hello Christiane,
Open the bake compartment and look up in the ceiling of the bake compartment. The broil element is up there and you should see a screw near the front that retains this burner in position. When you remove the burner, the ignitor will come out with it. When you get this loose and unplug the connector, you can remove the two screws and install the new ignitor 74007498. You then re-assemble the unit in the reverse order.
