Maytag made many different stoves and not all work alike. What model number is your stove? With the specific model number our experts can give you better advice.

Typically that problem happens with the oven...... very rarely the broiler unless you use it a lot. If it's the oven that is cycling..... change the hot surface igniter. It's gotten weak. The igniter must glow bright white in order for the safety valve to remain open.

Question Intermittent Igniter...

Hi - I have an older GE Gas stove/oven. The oven has become very intermittent, where sometimes it lights and sometimes it doesn't. It uses barrel type glow igniters and I've replaced both the bake and broil igniters. When it fails, both Bake and Broil have the same symptom; the igniter starts to glow but only for 10 or less seconds. Suddenly the oven beeps, the igniters turn off, and that's it. No error codes are generated. When it works, it works with no issues...Can't seem to cause or repair the issue. It sometimes works and sometimes doesn't :-( . Any ideas?
The unit is a GE JGSP10GEK3BG.
