Hello, again, friends... The washer and dryer send their regards.

This time, it's the Maytag gas oven, CRG8200. It's about 15 years old. 

Details: All four stovetop burners work. Electrical (clock, oven light) works. This model has the broiler down below, where it seems to share the heating tube with the oven. 

Five months ago, the oven shut down after first igniting and beginning to warm. Repairman replaced igniter. That fixed the problem. But yesterday, it died again, also after it had begun to warm up. I'm told the part had only a 30-day warranty. This time, I'll do it myself. But could the igniter really have died after only five months?

When I turn on the oven knob, the igniter does not make any noise or feel warm or turn red. (I only left it on for about 10-15 seconds, though, because it kind of creeps me out.)

Igniter?

could be, I would rather you verify that the ignitor is getting voltage though....ignitor should have a 90 day warranty....but yes most likely the ignitor

I pulled out the drawer and took a look at the ignitor. Right off the bat, I see that only one ignitor wire is connected to the oven components. Is there any scenario where that would be correct? There are two loose wires, one from the ignitor and one coming from the back of the oven. I see what appears to be remnants of melted black tape on a connector on the tip of a single non-ignitor wire. Is the only possibility here that these two wires were joined five months ago and spontaneously came apart? (I don't think I have mouse.) Can I do any harm by joining them and turning on the oven?

usually use ceramic wire nuts ...

and that connection should be behind the Oven Wall ...

Hi, RegUS... The connection that disintegrated was completely inside the oven, behind the broiler drawer. That's where the gas company pro left it the last time. It looks like there's a panel behind it that might open. But the other oven wires may be too short to stretch that far.

I just came back from the store looking for connectors or tape that wouldn't melt, closest I could find were "SafetyGuard low-torque" good for up to 400-degrees. Are ceramic connectors reusable? That may be what I have. Hard to tell. They're small.

Yes, Patty was definitely in denial when she bought the 400-degree ones. I'll try reusing the ceramic for tonight.

Once again, the appliance gurus come through. It worked. The wires weren't too short to be hidden properly. I punched out the sheet metal access panel on the inside back wall of the oven and hid the new wiring onnections back there. I discovered that the panel, once removed, was designed to be reinstalled upside down, with a handy screw hole waiting to hold it in place. Now I don't have to worry about melted electrical tape... You guys will find a case of beer in the usual fridge. Thanks!!!
