1. Ensure oven is powered down and cool to the touch. For extra assurance, throw the circuit breaker to the range to OFF. 2. Pulling gently but with constant force remove the right rear surface burner element from its receptacle. 3. Remove right rear drip bowl. 4. Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver remove the single screw that holds the vent cover. 5. Lift the oven top, it should latch open. 6. Remove the vent cover - you may need to pry it very slightly with a slot screwdriver if it has never been removed, it tends to stick from accumulated cooking smudge. 7. Clean up the area where the new cover will go. 8. Install the new cover and screw it snugly, but don't overtighten. 9. Using releases on latching struts,lower oven top. (Cautiously, so as not to pinch your fingers as the top drops!) 10. Re-seat the drip bowl and carefully plug the heating element back in, making sure it seats properly in both the electric receptacle socket and how it sits on the stove top drip pan. Done! (Don't forget to switch the breaker back on, if you turned it off.) I explained this in great detail, but it shouldn't take more than 5 or 10 minutes to accomplish the whole task.

1. turned off the breaker delivering power to the oven. 2. removed the grates. 3. unscrewed the 2 screws holding the element in place and gently pulled the2 ends of the element from the rear of the oven. 4. disconnected the 2 power connections from the element being careful not to have them slip back into the insulation at the rear of the oven. 5 removed the element and connected the new element to the power sources - this was the most difficult task, with little wire extending from the back of the oven it required delicate handling and certainty that the connection was solid. 6. slid the 2 prongs of the element into the rear of the oven. 7. installed the 2 screws. 8. replaced the grates.

Bake element was broken and needed to be replaced.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Watched the accompanying video on the website. Very glad I did as the key thing to remember when replaceing the bake element is that the connecting wires ARE VERY SHORT and can easily snap back inside the element lead hole in the back of the oven. Lead on the left side had a small amount of play but the right side element wire was extremely short and "snapped" back into the hole. I had to use needle nose pliers to pull it back through. Just take your time and keep your fingers on the leads as best you can.

burnt out bake element

  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

The bake element repair itself was very easy and straightforward. The difficulty and extra time involved relates to improper wiring of the electrical circuit the range plugged into. A previous homeowner had apparently taken a shortcut when repairing a faulty di-pole circuit breaker and routed one side of the 240v circuit through a separate single-pole breaker which is a blatant electrical code violation. After replacing the faulty di-pole breaker and wiring the circuit properly the bake element repair was simple and the oven is working great. While most DIY folks will not run into this same problem with an improperly wired electrical circuit it pays to be cautious. I relied on the di-pole breaker to cut power to the oven during the repair but because one side of the circuit had been rerouted I received a nasty shock. Please do what I failed to do originally: unplug the range/oven at the wall before making the repair. And if you suspect improper wiring of the 240v circuit, please consult an electrician as it is a dangerous situation.

I called my son, left the part, two screw drivers out, went to work, came home and was able to use my oven again! It couldn't have been easier and I made him some zucchine cake as a thank you for doing the job! It was easy to order and pay for the part online, get the part within a week and I was back in business. Thanks for being available to make getting the part a no-hassle experience.

My burner on indicator light had stopped working

  • Customer: Ashley from Bel Camp MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I ordered both the light bulb and the switch that controls it. I had not pulled the stove out because the ones I bought this house from did not level the floor which meant I had to wait on a socket set to arrive in order to be able to pull my stove away from the wall. Once I got the socket set and the stove out I removed the panel on the back. I saw then that my red light bulb had shattered in half forcing the switch to just hang free. Glad I had ordered both parts, removed the old, replaced new with ease... then it was a matter of sliding the panel back in place without the main control panel getting misaligned, few trial and error checks and it went back with ease. New light works! Very easy.. probably less time if your floor is level.. then I had to play with the little legs to get it even again. For now it is ok until the spring where I go to redo the floor and make it all LEVEL! Very easy! Hope it doesn't burn out again but if it does I know what to do! Maytag rep wanted to charge me $100... No thanks!

Our heating element ended up breaking from age and use. The repair was extremely easy: turn off breaker to oven, unscrew two screws holding in the heating element, pull it from the unit and detach the element from the electrical wiring. Once this is completed just perform the steps in reverse. The part arrived very quickly from PartSelect, arriving in just 2 days with the standard shipping. I am very pleased with my interaction with PartSelect.
