Oven sensor replacement was easy. Thermistor was installed in less than 15 minutes. After installation STILL had "F3" error message. Harness was ok, "Clock" or ECU needed to be replaced. "Computer" is obsolete, no spares available, some companies will rebuilt for $400+. Since the stove was going to the landfill I had nothing to lose by taking the "Clock" apart. It has one chip that is probably the power supply and control chip, another chip is an EEPROM with 128 bytes of storage and the last is a darlington chip that controls the relays. Cleaned up everything that looked like it needed cleaning with alcohol. When I reassembled the unit the pins for the thermistor harness felt loose, so I took it apart, again, and found cold solder joints on all four pins. It must have been there all along but plugging and unplugging the harness finally broke out the solder so I could see it. Soldered the pins back in and now it all works. It's worth a try if you're getting the "F3" message. If the relays on your stove aren't working it would be a good idea to replace the darlington chip. Good luck.

Removed the two screws, on both sides of the oven wall corner. Gently lift the front end of the glass top and pull towards me and disconnect the two electrical sockets. Carried the glass top assembly on the kitchen table and turned upside down. Removed the six screws. Removed the assembly from the glass top. Turn the top burners assembly over and disengaged the two clips of the burned out burner from the assembly plate. Transferred the two clips to the new burner on the exact locations like the old ones were. I have placed the new burner on the location and snapped the clips on the slots. Removed the connectors one piece at a time and connected to the new burner. Reversed the previous disassembly and all was done Works like a charm. Thank you all for assisting me in providing the necessary parts and video instructions. It was a lot cheaper than to buy a new range.

Oven would not heat above 200 degrees when set at 350 degrees. Element would not get hot (not red).

Turn off power (at breaker panel). Pull out range from wall and unplug electrical cord from outlet. Remove retaining screw at each side of element. Slowly pull out element from back of oven to expose electrical connector. Use pliers to pull connector apart (do not pull on wire). With element disconnected, measure resistance between the two ends of the element. Found infinite resistance or open circuit. Ordered replacement part and measured new part to be 20 ohms. Installed new element by pushing on connectors to new element. Carefully push new element into oven back wall and secure with the 2 screws. Plug electrical connector into wall socket and push range back to the wall. Turn on breaker switch. Turn on oven to verify fix. Note: Confirm there is voltage on both legs of wall socket for 220 volts which will confirm the breaker at panel is functioning. This can be done before removal of element from the range.

Oven would not heat on Back Cycle

The thermocouple was suspect. It should be super easy- two screws, but the wiring harness would not pull through on my oven. I confirmed the procedure with the PartSelect video which is good. The harness was caught and broke so I had to pull the oven out partially to get to the harness. The sensor did check bad on the multimeter (resistance too high- Google it, I did) so I ordered the part. Once the new part was installed the oven still did not function. So I had to get busy with the multimeter and pull the oven again. On the back of my oven near the wire to the bake element is a Hi Limit Switch which cuts off the bake element if the outside of the oven gets above the preset temperature. Mine was cracked and faulty and had to be replaced. The oven works great now.

Remove 2 screws in upper left corner of stove holding sensor in place. Pull sensor out and disconnect plastic electrical connector. Select appropriate adapter (both styles provided with new part) & reinstall. Power up stove and select bake on control unit to test. Works like a charm!

Simply remove the two screws in the back and carefully work the element out taking care not to pull the wires off. I left the oven door on which made access somewhat awkward reaching in. Remove wire clips and install new element in reverse. So easy even a caveman could do it.

unplugged the oven from the 220 volt receptacle. Removed the wire shelves. Unscrewed the two screws holding element to rear of oven. (I didn't know at this point to pull the wires through from the back so I took the back panel of the oven off and unplugged the connectors from the rear). Measured the defective element, ordered, and two days later I reversed the process when the package arrived in the mail. . quite simple. I love it when I can fix something myself. And by fixing, I actually mean "replacing".

Followed directions as supplied. New part did not work, so it must be in the control unit which is no longer available. So time for a new range.

RIght rear burner on glasstop range stopped working

Cut power to range in breaker panel. Then removed two screws (1/4" nutdriver) or phillips head just under top in front. No need to move range out from wall. Once those two screws were out, I lifted the top carefully (since wires are attached to back of range) and propped it up with a piece of spare lumber I had lying around. Then removed two screws holding right rear burner, and doing one wire at a time, pulled the wires from bad burner and reattached wires to new burner. Oh, I did need some pliers to pull the wires from the old burner; they were on real tight. ALSO, the old burner had a series of numbers around it. I quickly learned that these helped you line up the burner correctly. So I noted the numbers with the screw holes in the old burner and made sure I used the same number holes in the new burner. Once new wires were attached, I attached the new burner, aligning the same hole numbers as the removed burner, and everything lined up perfectly. Two screws were inserted to hold the burner. I lowered the top and reinserted the two screws under the front of the top and I was done. Total time was about 13 to 14 minutes. Honestly, very easy. Plus prior to me taking on the project, I had called a Maytag repair shop, who said their fee was $99, plus parts, plus any extra time required for labor, but the latter was not likely something that typically occured.

F5 fault code kept appearing

I installed the new oven sensor but the problem continued. So I ordered a new relay board and installed it. Still no luck. So I pulled the new board back out and started trouble shooting it using my electronic background. I discovered the new board was using a pin for L2 that had no exit on the backplane, so I removed it and installed it where I believed it should go. Reinstalled the power relay board and presto. My oven is working lie a champ. Louis

I first pulled out stove, then disconned the power supply. Then removed rear panel which exposed connections to the bake element which was shorted out against one side of the rear panel. Replaced the bake element, then the rear panel followed by pugging in the stove and pushing it back into place then opened the oven door and tested the element to see that it was working properly. Thank you Partselect for your fast service on getting the part that I needed quicky and at a fair price.
