You might have a weak oven igniter. It might not be pulling enough amperage to open the gas valve. If you have an amp meter you could test for 2.0 to 2.2 amps. I recommend saving money on the part and using a the Frigidaire igniter 5303935066

SOURCE: Oben takes half an hour to heat up

I doubt its the igniter. It could be a faulty gas valve or maybe the orifice is blocked, and not letting enough gas into the burner

SOURCE: matag gas oven won't or is slow in comming up to temperature.

Hello and welcome to FixYA!
You are 100% correct in your suspicion that the oven ignitor is at fault. If you want to know "for certain" you can check that ignitor in circuit using an amprobe and looking for at least 2.9 amps, however I would say all you need do is replace that ignitor and your oven should return to proper operation. The gas smell is a result of an ignitor being on the "ragged edge" of being able to open the warp switch in the gas valve. Instead of opening up, it is "burping" the valve enough for you to smell gas. Your part number is a
12400035 and sells for around $50 or so, depending where you buy it.
Thanks for using the FixYA! service!

SOURCE: electric oven does not heat up enough

I had the same problem before the warranty expired. The heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. They replaced the heating element and it works as it should, however, this oven has never baked right. It gets hotter on the right hand side than it does the left and I have to constantly watch whatever I bake. I'm not very happy with this oven.

SOURCE: no ignitors on gas range top

Pull out the bottom drawer and look for a cover over the spark ignition module. The ovens have glowbars and they have nothing to do with the top( different circuit).40a0b9a.jpg

if it is not coming on then you may have the same problem again with the ignitor.

Have Maytag MER5755QAW range, the oven will not heat up, the display was working isn't now, i check both elements and temp sensor, all ok


The display control will need to be replaced. It may be cheaper to replace the unit since the control is so expensive. Here is a link to the part you need.

Mer5755 Oven losses temp. Start at 400 loses temp later


The problem is usually the ignitor not reaching the correct amp draw .When the ignitor does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The ignitor are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available.

Oven heats very slowly


If your top burners work ok, regulator should be ok. Majority of times the fail part in the oven is the ignitor...turn oven on and check for a flame after 10 mins. small flame could mean a bad safety valve.
