I have a Maytag gas range. It takes 12 minutes to pre-heat

Resolved Question:

I have a Maytag gas range. It takes 12 minutes to pre-heat to 450F. That seems to be a long time when compared to an electric range. I notice that there are flames visble only on one side at the bottom during pre-heat stage. Is this right?

bryanpaul52 :

hi. can you get me the full model number

Customer:

I can't find the user manual and I've looked at the range and can't see a model number.


 

bryanpaul52 :

does it have a bottom drawer ?

Customer:

yes

bryanpaul52 :

look in there for a tag, sorry this is running so slow we seem to be having a few site issues.

Customer:

bryanpaul52 :

okay great ! you say only half the burner is lighting is that correct ?

Customer:

I can see, just, flames on the right side but not on the left.

bryanpaul52 :

okay. the first thing you should do is check the burner holes to make sure they are not clogged. sometimes they can clog from a spill . if the burner is giood the igniter is weak and needs to be replced.

Customer:

Is it OK to just poke the holes if they seem to be obstructed?


 

Customer:

Is that part hard to replace, or do I need a technician to do it?

bryanpaul52 :

you could do this yourself. theres just two screws holding it and this comes with instructions. heres thelink to order it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Oven-Igniter/12400035/3377

Customer:

OK, thanks, Bryan. I'll see how it goes from here.

Customer:

You didn't say if it was OK to poke the holes.

bryanpaul52 :

your welcome yes you can just poke the holes with a paper clip or needle.

Customer:

OK. Thanks again.
