Customer Question
difficulty getting it back on...
Took stove top off 25+ Year old gas Maytag range having difficulty getting it back on suggestions?
After cleaning I did use the oven last night turned on no problems. Today the oven won't turn on.
Cooked eggs this a.m. No problem, heard igniter clicking and gas coming out then voila flame.
Went to cook something else and now I don't hear the igniter, do still hear the gas, no flame unless I light it using a lighter stick.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If you have power to the range, the spark module is likely faulty. Have you verified power to the range since no spark? Does the oven still work?
