Maytag stove\oven. Oven will not light. Bottom ignitor glows red hot. Top ignitor broke and cold. Will that bad top ignitor stop the gas from trying to start on the bottom burner? 7432P106-60 Model501A Norton 0014 Thanks Gene

The parts store gave me a Norton 501A. It has a flat mounting bracket while the original has an angle bracket so that the element is facing the gas flow while if I install the Norton the gas will flow through the slots in the bracket. Do I need to get an ignitor with the angle bracket?

How hard is it to replace an oven ignitor in this model? The oven all of a sudden started taking a long time to heat up. Sometimes I will have to crank it up to 500 degrees to get it to heat up to 350 and it takes like 40 minutes.. I think its the ignitor.. Thanks.. Debi

I have installed the new oven ignitor as suggested but now it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute for the gas to come on. The ignitor glows right away. The oven used to kick in with in seconds is there something else wrong?

Hello, My oven will not bake or broil. The display reads 100 but never changes. I hear the relay click but that is it. I smell no gas coming out. The top burners work just fine. I was not sure If I needed this part as it maybe not drawing enough current to trigger valve or if the top display unit is the problem?

Both of the igniters glow but when I set the bake preheat, it takes a couple of minutes before the gas valve will open. When it gets up to temperature, and then needs to add more heat, it takes a couple of minutes again before the gas valve will open. I haven’t set the broil and waited for it to turn on but the gas valve does not open within 30 seconds of turning it on. I read 3.0 Amps on the Bake Igniter but I read that it is uncommon for both to fail at the same time. I haven’t used the Broil at all on the oven so it may have been bad for a while? Anyway, I just wanted to make sure this wouldn’t be a different issue before I ordered the part. The burners on the top work fine. This problem occurred quickly, it worked just fine one day and within two days I noticed it.

Hello again, and thanks for answering my question. I followed your instructions, very helpful thanks! and installed the igniter. However, there was still the same screeching sound when I turn the burner on. This sound came from behind the oven from a blue box on the bottom of the oven. There are white and red wires that go into that blue box. Can you assist with this new problem? What is the blue box? I am assuming I have to take it apart. Thanks.

My question is similar to the one asked by someone else. The wires in our oven do not have a quick connect to match up with the part number AP4096256. The one that came out of the oven was melted and burned, that is why it is being replaced. The color of the burned part is green. The red wires were attached to that green end connector.
