Question and Answers

Q:

The burner cap. Why is it on the burner? It seems like it is just there for aesthetic appeal and I see no real need. MGR5770ADW Maytag Gas range

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the need for the burner caps on your Maytag gas range model MGR5770ADW. I will be happy to help you with this. 
The burner caps actually serve a couple of important functions. First, many burners will not light if the burner cap is not properly positioned. They help control the air to the flame. Too much or too little air and the flame will either be too hot or may just go out. Next, they make sure the flame is evenly distributed around the bottom of the pan. That helps the food cook evenly. They also prevent food debris from falling down into the burner. This prevents clogged burners and also helps prevent the flame from flaring up and burning you.

Over time the caps can become caked with a grease build up so they should be cleaned on a regular basis. I have included the link below for some videos I saw online about the burner caps. They include information such as positioning the caps, cleaning and replacing them. 

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

Trouble with oven MGR5770ADW Maytag Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your range. Upon researching model MGR5770ADW; it sounds like the ignitor may need to be replaced. The ignitor heats up and allows the gas valve to open when the ignitor reaches the appropriate temperature. So if the ignitor is not getting hot enough then the valve takes longer to open. I have posted a link of the ignitor to view the link click here.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

NOTE: A qualified installer should complete this conversion.

You will need the natural gas orifice that is part number 234826 for that dryer. You will also need the leak limiter cap (part 694424), the regulator screw (part 694423) and the spring (part 694422). The orifice will need to be changed. I don't have the original LP conversion kit instructions for that dryer. I believe that an LP blocking pin was inserted in that regulator in place of the spring, screw and cap mentioned above (Keys 15, 16 and 17 in the first image below). The LP blocking pin will need to be removed and those 3 natural gas components will need to be installed in that regulator. This information should help you order the correct parts so that the installer can properly convert that dryer back to natural gas.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect.com website. The installer will need to unplug the appliance and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components.

The second and third images show the procedure for converting the range. You should be able to provide that information to the installer to convert the range back to natural gas.

You can check with your local gas company for a qualified installer if you do not already have one.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.
