Oven stopped working

Our gas oven has stopped working but stovetop is still functional. It's a Maytag purchased in 1997. Over the last several weeks we've noticed that it takes longer to get up to temperature. We'll call for service tomorrow but in the meantime I wonder if anyone has ideas as to what is wrong, whether it's repairable, and approximately how much it will cost. TIA.

  1. Probably the ignitor. I've been through two of them on my Maytag Gemini (one for each oven). Check your model number and you can get an idea of the price for the part here. <>. If you're handy, it's not a terribly difficult repair to do yourself. A service call will vary quite a bit by region/etc...
