Customer Question
I have a Maytage...

I have a Maytage Gas double oven model MGT8775XW01. Last week the power surged and since then the bottom oven will not turn on. Everything else is normal

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The control panel indicated bottom oven is preheating on "Lo", but never turns on.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends what needs to be done.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I shut the breaker off for a couple minutes, hoping to reset things, but that did nothing.

OK can you try the broil element on the bottom oven and tell me if that works?

The bottom oven doesn't broil. Only bake, convect back, and convect roast. Top oven had broil element
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

OK do you hear a faint click in the console when you set it to Bake?

Then it says "preheating for multi-rack baking" , which scrolls for a few seconds, then it indicates "Lo" with "preheating" underneath...but that's it. Never gets hot.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

OK so either the bake ignitor is burned out or possibly the gas valve on the unit for the lower oven. Do you have a volt meter?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Instead of "Lo", it used to indicate the temperature as it was preheating.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Tell you what, if that's what you think it is, I will likely call a repairman.
Just wanted to see if it was something more simple.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

OK get to the ignitor and test it for 120 volts at the two wire connection to the element. If you have 120volts there replace the ignitor. If not you would have to check at the two wires to the gas valve for the lower oven. If you see 120 volts across the two wires to the valve the valve is bad.
