My oven has always been slow to start up, but now, it delays for minutes, then when it starts is booms so loudly the house shakes. (not using the oven anymore until repaired obviously!) it is a Maytag model MGR5875QDW I would love to be able to repair this myself, my husband would be so impressed, (so would I!) Do I need a new igniter?

very possible you need a new ignitor:

Part number: AP4096256

Part number: AP4096256

I would take it apart first though and look for anything wrong with the burner Look around the area where the ignitor is mounted for anything not mounted correctly. The burner should cover the orifice that the gas comes from and the ignitor should be securely attached close to the burner holes to ignite the gas as soon as it starts flowing

Katied,

 

I would check out where the gas leak is coming from before do anything else. You have a build up of gas in the oven cavity, which is be ignited by the the ignitor causing a mini explosion! You may have crack or broken gas line, loose gas line connection or a faulty safety valve.

Be really careful please. I know you really want to fix it and impress the  hubby but this may be an igniter problem or it may not be an igniter problem. Just hearing the house shakes and explosion coming from a gas heating appliance should be plenty cause for concern. I highly recommend you call a professional in on this one. The techs. on here know their stuff, no doubt, but nobody can guarantee you that just replacing the igniter will definitely solve you problem, with out looking at the unit. With the concern of the next "boom" being the worst "boom" please be careful.
