The lower oven was not coming on at all after cleaning mode. Upon inspection found the bake igniter wiring burned and fused together. Replaced igniter cutting the fused lines and splicing together the new igniter wiring to stove wiring.. The new igniter does not glow nor does the oven come on. No heat whatsoever. The upper oven and broiler work fine. The control panel only shows the preheat indicator but does not show the bake icon. Could the electronic control board bake sensor have shorted out when the lower igniter wires fused together? Does the Maytag oven recall have anything to do with igniter burning out in the first place? Thanks in advance for your response and expertise.
Answer K Heintz,
To check to see if the control board is sending power to the igniter, you will want to access the control board. There will be a 5 pin connector that has a red, yellow, orange and black wire going into them. Black will be your L1 for the lower bake. There will then be a 3 pin connection that has a white and a black wire. The white is the neutral. Check from the Orange on the 5 pin connector to the white on the 3 pin connector with the unit set to bake for the lower oven for 120 vac. If there is not 120 vac present then the control board would need to be replaced. If there is 120 vac then you will want to check the wiring from the control board to the igniter to make sure that there are no other bad spots in the wiring. If the control is defective then the clock that you would need is based on the serial number. The part number of the control is 5701M576-60.
Yes my top oven will work and my botttom oven won't. Whats the problem?
Answer Hello Reginald. Check and make sure there is power coming to the oven igniter and it is glowing. If it is glowing, you need to Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I can not get install video up. Is there a wriiten install inst. avaialbe?
Answer Hi Norm. We do not have your model #. None the less, you need to remove your door. Remove the oven racks , remove the lower oven bottom screws and lift up and out of the bottom. Then remove the front burner mount screw. Lift up the burner assy. and un hook the ignitor part # 7432P143-60 electrical connector. Then use a 5/16" nut driver to remove the ignitor screws. Sometimes it is best to slowly move the screw both ways to loosen them. Thank You.
I have am trying to find the serial number on my Maytag Gemini Double Oven range. Where is it located? I have check inside the doors, the back of the range and in the manual, but have been unsuccessful.
Answer Hello Keith! The model/serial number tag plates on the Maytag Gemini units are on the back of the appliance located on the control panel. If you take a mirror and look on the back of the control panel there will be a tag (just like a mail box flag) you can lift up and it will list the model/serial number. Hope this helps you!
My top burners work fine but the bake and broiler do not work. I thought it might be the ignitor after reaserching it but did not realize there are more than one ignitor.
Answer Anthony, Yes, you have three oven burner igniters, two in the small upper oven and one in the large lower oven, but they are all basically, the same igniter. The harder part is determining which is an issue. You'll need a multimeter or a clamp on ammeter, make a selection in the oven and check for 3.2 to 3.6 VAC at the gas safety valve terminals for the oven selected. or with a clamp on amp meter check for 3.2 to 3.6 amp draw on the circuit with the igniter glowing. Thanks and Good Luck
