Timer know would no longer set the time...

  • Customer: Rachael from Adams MA
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I removed the screws holding the bezel, removed the control panel frame, unhooked the four wires from the timer, and removed the timer. I cut the glue holding the circuit board into the frame and removed the circuit board. I unsoldered the faulty encoder switch, dissassembled the switch, determined the correct specifications for the switch, and ordered the nearest equivalent from an electronics supplier. I modified the new encoder to accept the shaft from the old encoder and I re-drilled the circuit board to fit the new encoder. I then soldered and wired the encoder, reversing the wires to correct the direction of rotation. I then reinstalled everything and added the knob purchased from partselect.com. Now it works. Tough repair - not for the faint of heart or those of average skill. But for the record, installing the knob was of course child's play and took only a moment.

Lower element in top double oven failed

  • Customer: Keith from hixson TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
turned off power, removed two screws mounting the old element, cut wires, and removed old element, crimped new stake connectors onto existing wiring, attached stake connectors to new element, installed element with two new screws provided, turned power back on.
It would be easier to just slip the two stake connectors off and reinstall on the new element but I elected to install new connectors because the oven was over ten years old and one seemed loose.

Turn off the electricity for the oven from the switch box. Unsure the damaged element from the unit. Pull it forward and unplug connections. Then plug the new element and use the new screws to screw it back to the unit. That's all

The replacement switch was slightly larger than the old one so it would not go through the hole in the front panel so I had to get a reaming tool and enlarge the hole just a little for the switch to go through. It was still an easy repair as I had the proper tool.

The instructions reviewed in the Maytag Parts web site provided very good information that told me how to remove and replace the heating element. It took me about 15 minutes to complete the replacement. The oven then began to function properly.

I am impressed with the rate I was sent the replacement. I received the replacement within 24 hours after I submitted the request for the product.

Unscrewed old element from back of oven, disconnected and reinserted new element and screwed back into place. Voila! So glad to have saved the cost of a repairman. Where I live this would have been a $200 repair(part and service call) easily. This repair took no time at all. Very please as to how fast Parts service got the part to me. I use my oven a lot, so I was lost without it.

This was too simple, turned off the power to the oven, undid the two screws, unplugged two wires, plugged wires into the new element, fastened the new screws and turned the power back on. Turned on the oven, what do you know, it works again!

The element did not come with instructions and none were needed.

This was an easy thing to do. Take the two screws off the back, pull the wires out, pull off the connectors, get the new element, replace the connectors, make a hole in the insulation, fish the wires back behind the insulation, screw the mounting screws and turn it on. The only thing I did extra is clean the bottom of the oven because with the element out, it's easy to do.
