Bake element was broken and needed to be replaced.

  • Customer: Carlton from Media PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • 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.

Inside Door Glass Broke

Repair was super easy, Remove Screws. (the hardest part was trying to remove the edging of the door without cracking it, or breaking the tabs used to secure it) Once I got the edges off, I slid the front of the door off, removed the screws and braces holding the outer glass. Picked out the broken pieces, cleaned all the glass and inside the door and put it all back together. If I didn't clean everything, it would've taken half the time.

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!

Hotplate not working

  • Customer: Anthony from Louisville KY
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed two screws holding cooktop to oven. Unlike the video, the cooktop was not detachable as the wires were hard-wired to the range, so I had to prop the top up with a 6" block of wood and was working upside down. I replaced the element and everything worked just fine.

Small Surface Burner Was not Working

  • Customer: Tevfik from Naugatuck CT
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Repair video was very helpful. I have removed the screws on both sides of the appliance under the surface plate, in the front. The Owen door has to be open for that. Then I have pulled the surface plate for a little space to disconnect the two connectors. Turned the surface plate over on the kitchen table, removed the 6 screws. Turned the burners assembly over and removed the small burner by disengaging the two clips. I have removed the 2 clops from the burned burner and assembled it to the new burner. I have placed the burner and engaged the 2 clips with a crownose players. I have removed one electrical connecter at a time and connected to the new burner. I have turned over the assembly over the glass plate and assembled the back cover with 6 screws. Put the surface plate on the range and connected the 2 connectors, pushed back, lined it up with the 2 screw holes in front of the range on bot sides and put the 2 screws in and Finished.

Element went out and replaced the seal in the door

  • Customer: Nancy from Oakland OR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The repair would have been very easy, except this oven has a factory defect with wiring for the element on one side. The element should just plug in after removing 2 screw. The wiring on one side is too short to plug into the element without the assistance of something like a wrench with a bent long nose, hence the the surgical clamp. The seal, for cleaning, is really easy to replace, It just snaps in to designated holes.

Upper oven shut down after reaching temperature

  • Customer: Earl from Globe AZ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The hardest part was deciding if this part would fix the problem. The upper oven became unusable. Both elements worked fine until reaching temperature. The oven would not come back on after that. I took two screws out. Then I pulled the wires out and unsnapped the coupling. The install was reverse. I just snapped the coupling in place and replaced the two screws. All works fine now. Saved a couple thousand as wife was prepared to buy a new one.
