Q:

oven heats up slowly MGR4451BDW Maytag Maytag cooking

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

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.

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

Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Maytag Range model numberMGR4451BDW.

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.

Your details seem to indicate that the ignitor on the oven burner is glowing. This indicates that all of the other components in that circuit are apparently okay. The ignitor is probably not heating to a point where its resistance decreases enough to allow the proper current flow to reach the safety gas valve. The ignitor will need to be replaced to fix this type of problem. The theory of operation for that ignition system is shown in the image below. This information will help you understand how that system works. According to your details, replacing that ignitor (part 74007498) should fix your problem. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Ignitor .

These tips should help you fix this oven heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
