Maytag gas range oven will not preheat. All burners work as does the broil function. Will not bake or convection bake. What part should I order?
Answer Hello Dina. 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 12002604. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter 7432P136-60 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.

How do you take the oven door off to get access to the oven bake ignitor. I see that there is a screw on each side of the door does this screw have to be removed first?
Answer Hello Hibye. Open the door all the way open. Then pull the two metal clips on the back of the door hinges down and lock them into place. Close the door to the stopping point. Lift the door off the oven. Hope this helps.
How difficult is it to remove and replace gas oven ignitor on Maytag gas stove?
Answer Hello Hibye. These are not hard to replace. Remove the rack from the oven and the oven door. Then remove the bottom panel inside the oven. Next you will remove the burner baffle off the top of the burner, and remove the screws holding the igniter 74007498 in place. Pull the wires out of the back of the oven and reinstall in reverse order with the new igniter. Hope this helps.
Oven heats up/bakes slow. The top burner does not come on during bake but works on broil (is it supposed to light on bake) Bottom burner seems to do all the heating.
Answer Hello Rick. No, the top burner only comes on when the broil function is selected. Check and see if it takes a long time for the bottom burner to lite when the igniter glows. If so, you have a weak igniter 74007498, and it will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
