oven heats up slowly MGR4451BDW Maytag Maytag cooking


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the oven.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag model number mgr4451bdw.

Sounds like your oven ignitor is coming on but taking to long to heat up.   The first thing is the ignitor.   Even though it is loading and firing, there just doesn't sound to be enough spark there to have it come on fully to do the baking that is called for.  I would pull out the ignitor and test it.

How to test the ignitor:

1.  Lower the door all the way down.   May have to remove the hinges so be careful.  The ignitor will be on the back bottom side of the oven.  Usually a cylindar/oblong piece and has a metal covering.  2 wires on the back side with ceramic wire nuts.

2.   Turn the gas on and wait for the ignitor to start glowing.  If it takes more than 2 minutes to do then needs to be replaced.

3.  If it is coming on then look and see if it is a dull orange/reddish flame.  The probablility is that  there is no longer enough current flowing through.  Then ignitor needs to be replaced.  

4:  The ohms should read anywhere from 20 to 40 ohms 

 If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears

I'm having this same issue, however my ignitor starts quickly. I believe there may be a problem with the gas flow. What are the chances of this and, if a probable cause, how can I fix this? Thanks

Door handle is loose MWT4451D01P1173506M Caloric Over the range microwave


Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting with your question about your microwave. I am so sorry door handle is loose. I know what a time saver the microwave is and I am sure you want this issue fixed quickly.  In this case I recommend you have the microwave serviced by a qualified technician. 
We do not give diagnostic or repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged from the power supply. Special equipment is needed to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after ANY/ALL microwave service. 
For these safety reasons I strongly recommend having this repair completed by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online at or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663). Here at we love to help you with your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous for a do-it-yourself project. 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with any other questions and repairs in the future. Thank you for choosing Sears.

When changing the handle, it is quite often that the screws for the handle too.   I have below the part numbers for the handle whether it be for white or black.  If you find that you need the screws for the handle then we need you to re-post another question with the serial number also.   It makes a big difference.

White handle part number is 74011675.
Black handle part number is 74011777.

The screws have different part numbers which will pertain to the correct serial number.
