Our Maytag electric range has a small oven on top that doubles as a toaster, and food warmer. The lower one is a big oven suitable for Thanksgiving Turkey Etc. It is also a broiler as is the top oven. The top one had the bottom element burn out about 5 months back as well. Now the bottom element on the lower oven had burned out as well. The oven has some age on it, but when I looked to replace it I saw it would be approx $1800.00 - $2000.00 for a new one. I knew the elements were replacable and thought if I should call out the lonely guy, the Maytag repairman. Nope, I pulled the stove out disconnected the 220 power supply. I got the Model number off the back stamped info plate. I looked up Maytags parts on Google and the first one was PartSelect.com. They have easy fill-in spaces for Model and Make and a schematic of the oven and all it's pieces are visually displayed. I found the part I needed and ordered. It arrived in two days, very reasonable, very fast shipping. Pulling out the old elements required only a battery operated screw driver, a flash light, and a magnetic dish to keep track of the screws.The removal of the rear panel takes about 10 sheet metal screws. I marked the leads I disconnected by color with a felt tip pen on the back. I disconnected and removed the aforementioned clips, cleaned inside the oven and placed the new element in, reconnected everything on the back as it had been according to my color assignments, replaced the back with battery operated screwdriver from the magnetic dish, reconnected the 220V power supply. Done, in about 30 minutes; I saved a bunch over a new Stove and at least a couple hundred over a service call. Easy and satisfying.

The heating element was damaged by a fire extinguisher.

First I unplugged the range from the wall outlet power source...VERY IMPORTANT!!! Then I unscrewed the 2 mounts in the back of the range that hold the heating element in place. I removed the old and installed the new one and reattached the 2 new mounts with the original screws and plugged the range back into the wall outlet. Other than the small and dark work space inside the small oven, it was super easy to do and probably saved us $175!

This was really easy. I took out the lower oven racks. Most important - Turned off the breaker to the stove. Unscrewed the element and popped it out. Put in the new one and screwed it back in. Turned on the breaker and I was ready to go.

Unplugged the oven range, it is a dual oven. Removed the 2 screws in the back to loosen the element. Removed the 2 screws that held the bracket that held the element. Removed the 10 screws in the back that holds the back panel and then disconnected the cables to the element. Installed the element in the reverse. Easy.

Removing the backplate afforded easy access to the element connections. A few screws inside the oven hold the element in place.

Care needs to be taken not to scratch the floor when the stove is slid out to get at the back of it. I put lexan strips on the floor for the feet to slide on.

First I switched off the braker. I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then pulled the element out and disconnected the two wires. I put in the new element screwed back the two screws, turned back on the braker and BAM! Start cooking immediately... Very easy to do and very fast service from PartSelect. I hope I won't need any more parts, but if I do, you are already on my favorites. Thanks guys.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches AND UNFORTUNATELY I DID NOT TURN OFF THE BREAKER TO THE OVEN AND THE LIVE WIRE TOUCHED THE SIDE OF THE OVEN AND A WHITE SPARK/EXPLOSION SCARED ME. LUCKY TO BE ALIVE AS I HAD NEARLY CRAWLED INTO THE OVEN WHILE DOING THIS. ALWAYS TURN OF THE BREAKER!!!!

I took out the old and replaced with the new. The hardest part was getting that tiny halogen bulb in that tiny little hole. It took longer to take the oven racks out and put them back in than to make the repairs.

Removed frame to cabinet lag screws
Slid oven out of cabinet (required because wire harness could not be pulled through inside of oven)
Removed two screws holding attaching sensor inside oven
Uncoupled wire harness
Installed new sensor in reverse order

Unfortunately, neither the new bake element or sensor fixed the problem, so I just ordered the more expensive control board -- hope that does it.

After cleaning, F1-1 error flashed and neither oven worked

First I called a repairman and left a message. That was 3 weeks ago. So, I 'googled' the error message and determined what part I thought I needed. Ordered the part on Wednesday evening and it was there when I got home from work on Friday. I unpacked the part, got a phillips screwdriver and then watched the repair video on your website. About 20 minutes later I pushed my stove back in place and the flashing said 'set time'. Then I checked both ovens, and have since used both, and everything works!!
