I have a Maytag Range MGR4452BDB and just one top burner is not working.
I believe that I have a shorted wire and I need a wire (red) that connects to the spark igniter (1/8" terminal) to the spark module. What would be the correct part number for this wire and how can I purchase it? Please help.
If one burner is not sparking for the top and coming on then you will want to check the electrode to make sure that the insulation is not cracked. Also check the spark switch on the valve to make sure that there is continuity in the light position and if these check ok then you will want to check the wiring. If all checks ok then the spark module would be the issue.
After oven hits its temperature spark igniter keeps sparking.
We would need to have the model number to be able to assist properly. If the unit has a spark module type ignition system then most likely that is faulty and would need to be replaced.
I have a Tappan gas stove and the burners on the left side will not light up but I can smell gas what could the problem be?
You will want to check the igniters to make sure that they are not cracked or broken. You will also want to check your ignition switches for continuity with them in the on position they should have continuity.
When I try to ignite the burner it flicks but does not light I would like to order the ignitor part but I'm not sure this is the problem although I smell the gas when I turn the knob. I've cleaned all the debris pls advise.
If you are seeing sparking coming from ignitor then it would be more likely that the ignitor has gotten out of position and would need to be put back to proper positioning. If the ignitor is not sparking then you would want to get a new ignitor.
I just replace the ignitors (right side) for my range. I cleaned out the burners, which had a lot of rust built up. When I reassembled the sealed burner unit and re-installed it, the new ignitors did not work. There is clicking and no spark, although I can light the burners manually. What should my next course of action be?
Answer Minnie, A quick easy check, is to switch burner assemblys, install the left burner in the right side bay. If the igniters work and the burner ignites, then the issue is in the right bay burner assembly, if the burner still doesn't spark or ignite then the issue is in the range (spark module or igniter switches). You most likely have a loose connection in the wiring to the burner igniters, and will need to dismantle the burner assembly and check for loose broken disconnected wires and or loose screws, causing a loss of the ground circuit to the igniters.
