Question and Answers


maytag oven model MGR5875QDQ wont bake.


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The bake has most likely failed however, the failure could also be the electronic oven conrtol/clock assembly.

If the bake ignitor is glowing red then the bake ignitor is too weak to pull enough current to cause the bake gas valve from opening. The bake ignitor must pull between 3.2 and 3.6 amps in order for the gas valve to open. Check ignitor current draw, 3.2 – 3.6 Amps. Replace ignitor, if it fails test.

If it's not glowing, it will require disconnecting the bake ignitor and testing it for continuity/resistance. If it measures open/no continuity, then the bake ignitor will need to be replaced.

To access and replace the bake ignitor:

  1. Turn off electrical power and gas to the range.
  2. Disconnect gas and power from unit.
  3. Remove oven door and racks.
  4. Remove screws securing bottom bake cover.
  5. Raise the back of the bake burner cover and slide cover back to release the front edge of cover and lift out of oven cavity.
  6. Remove screws securing bake burner assembly to the oven chassis.
  7. Maneuver bake burner from the burner orifice and out of the slotted location.
  8. Pull forward on assembly to allow the ignitor terminal plug to pass through the back of the oven cavity.
  9. Disconnect terminal plug and remove assembly from the oven cavity.
  10. Remove screws securing ignitor to bake burner.
  11. Replace and reassemble in reverse order.
