Maytag Gemini Gas double oven MGT8655XS01
Replaced igniter and bottom oven works. When top oven is turned on, after about a minute, it trips the fuse. Suggestions?

Sounds like a short in the igniter circuit. The igniter is the only thing on. You probably need to replace that igniter as well.

Thank you for your reply. I have replaced the igniter twice in the last week... thinking there was an issue with the part. Same thing happens. Could the short be in the stove?

It could be the board the igniter connects to. Look for something obvious like burn marks. It could also be a bad/weak circuit breaker.

Not the circuit breaker but will certainly look at the board it connects to. If there is an issue with the board it connects to - is it fixable or time to replace stove? Thank you.
