I used a pipe wrench to turn the old burner off and removed the crumbling washer underneath- no need to replace this. I took off the 2 wires, crimped them onto the new burner, twisted it back into place and presto- all fixed!

Simply remove the box containing the two right burners. Access the igniter by removing about 8 screws and pull the coupler for the igniter off with a pair of needel nose pliers. Replace with new igniter using the same tool. Re-assemble the box by screwing in the screws and give it a try. Worked great. Once slight hitch, be sure you don't leave a second screw driving in the box. As it will raddle. So I had to remove and reassemble twice. I'm not a surgeon! Thanks for the fast delivery!

Simply removed the old burner know and replaced it with the new.

The key to the use of Select Part, was to be patient until I found the correct part, as the part number on the back of the knob didn't exist, according to Magic Chef.

This was a simple operation in that it was necessary to only remove two screws on the faceplate of the cook top. But the real story is the incredible service from "PartSelect.com". The service was fast and the feedback on tracking and shipment was accurate and right on target as to delivery. I purchased several items over the December holidays, and this company stands in the top 1 % in terms of ethical dealing and customer support. I have more parts to buy and you can be sure that I’ll buy them from PartSelect.

I have a maytag stove and the burner was coroted and it had to be replaced. I went seaching in the Internet for a new stove automatically then I thought maybe I can buy the part so I found this awesome website partselect.com. I was intrigue to see if I can find this part I needed so I put in the model number in an seached and then I placed the order not only for the burner but for the grates as well the website is designed very well! Easy to navigate to find the items your looking for. When I recieved the parts in the mail it took me less than 6 minutes to attach the burner and place the grates on the stove it was a great experience all the way around. I would recommed this web site to anyone.

This is the second repair to this stove-- A few years ago I went to Parts Select to find a new light panel, and that repair went perfectly. So when we re-did the kitchen I decided that the old stove would look fine so long as we could find some new grates. Custom-sized, nobody had them, but your company found them and shipped them quickly. We thoroughly cleaned the stove and PERFECT! This is a good way to keep stoves and other appliances out of the landfill!! I love it.
