Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. What is the model number of your maytag? It should be located on the inside of the door if you open it.

It should be located on the inside of the door but if you do not see it how about the flame sensor when you go to try and turn it on

sounds like a problem with the ignitor or the flame sensor to me and will need to be replaced.

sorry last question , why would either of them stop working just because we ran out of propane?
Everything was working fine on friday and ran out of propane on saturday
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

Well these things can fail for no reason. The fact there was nothing else to circulate out could have caused it and is the most likely cause. Just because you ran out of propane could have seized it up. These things do happen. And these are the most common to fail on all gas or propane units.
