The oven was not heating up to temperature

  • Customer: Max from Bothell, WA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I replaced the oven sensor which was easy to replace. A pigtail wire was provided with the sensor which is intended to be installed first so you don't have to reach around the front and back of the oven at the same time. The replacement was easy. However, that turned out not to be the problem. The real problem was the maytag electronic clock control timer, temperature control unit. The part number is 7601P177-60. This device has been discontinued and I was fortunate enough to find the part at a local supplier. Once I replaced this, the problem went away. The oven heats up normally. My original symptom was that when setting the oven temperature to something like 350 degrees, the display would rapidly report heating up the oven to that temperature, and the oven was only mildly warm. If you have that symptom, it is probably not the oven sensor. It is the electronic clock unit. Hope you can find one. If you can't, I think you need to by a new oven. Regards

Terminal block arc'ed because a wire had become loose.

Ordered and received the terminal block. Installed it along with a new 220V power cord and the appropriate insulator . Ensured the terminals were tight with a nut driver. Reinstalled cover. Then, using the control panel, I did a function check on all the heating elements, clock, oven light, to satisfy all operational requirements. All checked good! And, I was relieved that the control panel had not been shorted out as the terminal block was due to a loose connection. Easy fix.

Oven would not heat

Spoke to your very helpful staff, who advised me that a likely problem was the oven sensor. I took a chance and ordered the part, which came promptly. Your service video for the part was most helpful in my decision to try the part. Installation was a breeze, but it was the oven controller board that had failed and not the oven sensor. That called for a service professional, who ultimately fixed the problem. Your service though, was excellent and I would highly recommend you to others.

Small burner on glass top stove stopped working.

  • Customer: REX from VIRGINIA BEACH, VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

First, the diagram on your website said remove two screws. The diagram looked like they were on the back of the stove on each side. On my stove there were three screws that were visible under the front lip upon opening the oven door. I removed the top, which comes completely off and set it aside. Be careful when removing the top. Don't drag it out, otherwise you'll tear up the asbestos around the other burners. Two people would be better for the inexperienced people. The new elements have been redesigned, so the diagram doesn't fit what you are looking at. Plus, the diagram on paper is looking underneath the element when you are looking down on the top of the element. I removed one wire and put it in the same spot on the new. Turned out it was not the element that was bad. It was a loose wire in the inside of the control panel.

Pulled stove out from counter. Unplugged power cord. Took out the two racks. Unscrewed two screws with a Phillips head screwdriver. Pulled out element and disconnected wires and reinstalled new element in reverse order. Plugged back in and replaced stove back in counter and put racks back in. Took a Pizza out of freezer and cooked at 400 for twenty minutes and drank a ginger ale. Install took less than 20 minutes.

Oven baking element burned out & broken

  • Customer: Paul from Middlebury, VT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Screws had to be removed where the two ends of the old element are attached to the back of the oven. The wires can then be pulled out 2 or 3 inches into the oven and the connecters which are attached to the wires can be pulled off from the ends of the old element using pliers. Push the connecters onto the ends of the new element and push the wires through the back of the oven and replace the screws. I found it easier to remove the oven door for easier access.

Assembly took a little while, but that had to do with the stove, not with the element you provided. Turned it on and it looks like it's working well. (It's been so hot I haven't cooked since putting the new one in, so we'll see how that goes. But, when tested, it heated right up).

Removed two screws holding oven sensor in place. Haad to remove part of the back to access wires. Found existing wires had burnt up, and had to reterminate same. Installed new sensor, making sure the leads did not come in contact with the rear of oven compartment. (This may have been what caused failure to begin with)

I'm the world's worst handy man, but after watching the repair video on PartSelect I determined I might could do this repair. I ordered the part and replaced the element in less than 10 minutes! I also saved $160.00 by doing it myself!

The "PartsSelect" General discription of the parts funtion helped me to confirm my suspitions that there was some form of temperature registering problem. I whatched the short video they provided on how to change the part out, even though, in this case, it's pretty self explanitory.The part was in my hands a day erlier than promised and in reality, much earlier than I had anticipated from the beginng. It took me all total, 20 minutes to exchange the part out and have the oven in operation again.

F1 Fault Code - Replace the Temperature Sensor

  • Customer: Dennis from Tampa, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

The sensor inserts into a slot in the back side of the range. By removing screws on the heat shield on the backside of the range, the sensor wires will be exposed can be unplugged. Then remove the screws that attach the sensor to the back inside panel in the oven. Next, pull the old sensor out. The wire leads will get caught on the insulation blanket, no big deal. Reverse the process to install the new sensor. The new sensor comes with two connector sets for the wiring. I did the whole job for less than the cost of a service call.
