MAYTAG Gas Range, Oven Problem
« on: August 06, 2009, 04:18:33 PM »

I have a MAYTAG gas range, model MGR5755ADQ which is about 7 years old. I have a problem with the oven as follows:
It will not light on the first attempt, takes 2 or 3 tries. The main problem is that it will not come up to temperature. With the control set to the max. temperature (550) the oven will barely get to 200 F.
 What is the problem and what part do I need to buy to fix it?

Classic case of a bad igniter.

I looked up your model number and it uses the common 74007498 Maytag oven igniter.

MAYTAG 74007498 Oven Ignitor, AP4096256

Is there any place on line where I could see the service manual for this range to see how to go about changing the ignitor?
