Oven not heating pass 125, heating element not working

First I removed the screw behind the stove that hides the electrical wires. Pull off the two wires connecting the bake element with pliers. Unscrew the two screws holding down the floor pan which covers the baking element and pull out the floor pan. Here you will see the baking element, it is attached with a few screws. Remove the baking element and attach the new the same way.
We could not believe how easy this repair was to do. Not to mention all the money we saved on a repair man.
Thank you partselect.com, I'm glad I researched this on the net.

The heating element for the oven section was luke warm even when the control was turned up high.

I wasn't sure if it was the heating element or the temperature probe not allowing the oven to go above 200 degrees so I ordered both from Selectparts. After receiving my replacement parts (in record time thank you) the oven element had a hidden slit on the underside near the connection. During its removal the element disintegrated at that point.

Since Maytag is very user friendly to maintain, it was a matter of removing the retaining nuts securing the element to the back of the oven, and resecuring after replacing with the new element. I did have to take the back panel off the oven to reattach the wiring to the element. This was necessary because while I was removing and replacing the element, the insulation was pulled through the access holes. I also replaced the temperature probe because I had already ordered it. This was easier to replace however and I did not encounter the isulation problem as I had when removing/replacing the element. I recommended your company to my friends and would definately order parts from you should I need to repair another appliance in the future. Thank you again.

Oven would heat in bake mode

Turn off breaker to oven and verify no power.
Remove the two screws holding metal panel covering baking element on the floor of the oven (near back of inside of oven)
Remove two screws holding element mount to floor of oven (near front of inside of oven).
Remove single screw holding element to back wall of oven.
Pull element toward front of oven, carefully holding wires so they do not disconnect from element and slip inside the ovenback wall.
When you can reach the wire connections, hold each one with a pair of pliers and disconnect from element ends.
Connect new element ends into wire connections. Be sure to insert all the way into both connectors.
Carefully, push the wires back into the rear of the oven, trying not to scrape the wires on the sheet metal.
When fully inserted, reinstall single screw to secure element to back wall.
Re-install two screws to element mounting at the front of the oven floor.
Re-install two screws to secure element cover plate to the floor of the oven.
Turn on breaker for oven and verify oven has power.
Turn on oven to bake at 400 degrees.
Wait for oven to come up to temp and maintain for 10-15 min (you may smell some burning smells as the element heats up the first time).
Enjoy...
