Customer Question

Customer: Maytag gas oven, model MGR5775qdq. I think around 6 year old.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't know of anything else. I would say for in broiler mode the flame starts much quicker.
