Question about Maytag MGR4452BDW / MGR4452BDQ / MGR4452BDB Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Plastic / maybe electrical smell

Just had an issue with our gas range - never had this before, even ok as recently as lunch today. Tonight while heating some food the oven gave off an acrid smell. It was pretty bad, and dissipated as soon as we turned the oven off. Digital clock and interior light all working normally. Not sure how old the oven is, but would guess 10-15 years. Didn't want to pull the oven away from the way because of gas connections. Interior of oven and exterior (aside from not seeing the back) all looked fine.

Personally, I do not cook indoors with gas (outdoor, yes), but any time you have an issue with gas cooking ranges....you need to call a professional. We are connected to Centerpoint Energy and so I would call them. this could be a very serious gas leak issue. You don't say if you are on a propane conversion type, or utility supplied gas. that smell could be your only clue to something not good. Did your smoke alarm or CO detector go off? You could call your local gas company to ask the questions, if there is a warranty for your range, call that store.
You don't say the age of the range. That comes into play as making suggestions. Please error on the side of safety. Get a professional to deal with this.

Replaced the ignitor on mine 10 mins ago.... Works like it's brand new. You have to remove the bake pan in the bottom of the stove, remove the drawer, and the sheet metal shield protection the connection. Entire job was 10 mins.

Old Garland Propane Gas Stoves. Are the pilots today standing or are they electric start?

Oven wont work everything else is fine


As your oven is electric there is a heating element in the oven, have a look in the oven to find it and check the little plug in caps on the end to make sure they are not loose. If they,re ok check the switch on the front panel sometimes the knob comes loose on the spindle if that's all ok it may be the switch has failed. Good luck.

2003 Range rover won't start


Very likely the fuel pump has failed, if you mean you tapped on the gas tank
and it finally started. When a pump fails, sometimes rapping on the tank will re-energize it briefly or maybe even a couple of times before it gives out for good.
If you were tapping on the gas pedal, though, and it just started, your mechanic will have to look at it. Too many electrical fault possibilities, Scott, it needs proper diagnosis to find the p[roblem.

I have a 4 year old range master classic 110 Tonight both ovens stopped working and the clock does not work also. However the grill works and the hob works.... Any idea as to the problem? I have checked...


Hello Jeff,

it seems to me a problem with the timerfunction of the clock.
Clocks are the most source of problems, so when I refurbish a cooker and the timer does not work properly, I shortcut the timer as new clocks are very expensive.
In that case, the clock itself stays working.
For doing this, you need to lift the hob.

BE CAREFULLY, AND BE SURE THERE IS NO TENSION ON THE COOKER

I hope this will help you and I wish you a good weekend and a nice meal with your friends. Dik

The heater you're concerned about is an Electric Heater. So, I'm not sure why you're smelling gas. Is it a rotten egg smell or more of a plastic burning smell?

I've had a Premier electric stove for a number of years and just today i'm noticing a smell coming from the oven that resembles gas while preheating and cooking. Any idea why?


Either the ignitor is wearing out and not drawing enough amperage to open the gas valve properly, or the gas valve is not working properly. You can not tell a weak ignitor by looking at it, you need a amp clamp to test.

Do not recommend using any appliance with a gas smell coming from it.
If you are smelling any type of gas when not on, turn off gas to appliance completely.

You state this as a electric stove, taking this to mean electric ignitors and not pilots............

Kitchenaid selectra oven range: Electrical smell


If this is a new range the odor is coming from the binder used to install the insulation in the range. You would need to put it through a self clean cycle of at least four hours to burn off this binder. I would suggest that you do it on a nice day when you are staying home and can open the windows as it will smell quite horrid for a while.

Oven ignites by itself


Any chance that the plastic knob was cracked and not really turning the shaft of the thermostat?
What did you find the problem. I know this response is 2 months after the last post above.
