I have a May tag Stove/ oven insert, 8 year old, model, mgs5770adc.

Customer Question

I have a May tag Stove/ oven insert, 8 year old, model, mgs5770adc. the gas oven bake feature will not work. The broiler works but not bake feature. The electric igniter coil goes on for the bake feature of the gas will not come out of the burner. It seems to me that it's probably the electric gas control valve. Do you think that is correct?

more than likely its the oven igniter, these get weak over time (use bake more than broil) and don't draw enough amp. to open the valve. we run into this quite often. we don't change to many safety valves, or electronic controls in these, if the igniter is getting power and getting orange but not opening valve its probably the igniter. this is your igniter. Part 3377you can get this for around $50.00 at this site, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3377&PPStack=1 hope this helps, thanks Bryan
