We cut the electricity to the stove at the breaker box. We had to do that to keep the fire from spreading in the first place. We took 2 screws out and used the same screws to install the new bake element. It was just 2 connectors that had to be pulled apart gently from the old bake element. We plugged in the new bake element into the metal spaces where the old one came out. Replaced the screws and we were done. It was very easy.

Got a bent metal coathook to temporarily release the oven door, removed the screws from the old probe, inserted the new one, and hooked it up, using the one of the plug adapters provided. Problem solved! The oven door latch was now disengaged, the oven would now accept temperature inputs, and the rear cooling fan (which wouldn't shut off) now turned off. That's a lot of things working better for less than $50!

I had repair men replace the door hinges 2times and decided the 3rd time to do it myself and save some $. ordering was a chinch, received the parts in 2 days and followed instructions posted on this site. They were excellent. Just a few things I would stress: Lift UP the door to remove, not open the door fully and pull out and also make sure to take the small pins out of the new hinges before closing. They are so small you could over look them. The person who put detailed instructions on this site is to be commended for clarity and detail on "How To" I really appreciated it.

Heating Element Burned Out

Friday, 16 November, the oven heating element has burned out. Thanksgiving is the 22nd. The turkey awaits. Panic reigns.
I call Sears for repair. An appointment is set for Sunday the 18th between noon and 5 pm. An email confirms the appointment. On Saturday a telephone call confirms the appointment. On Sunday at 4:30 no repairman has appeared and no phone call has been received. I check the computer. An email from Sears states the repairman had called but nobody was home. Please call to schedule another appointment. I call Sears and tell them there were five people here all day, I have two doorbells and a dog that barks. Sears says they never schedule repairs on Sunday. Another appointment can’t be made till after Thanksgiving. So much for Sears repairs.
My son says he can fix the oven if I can get the heating element. Monday morning the local hardware says they can’t get an element till after Thanksgiving and send me to Maytag. Maytag says the can get an element by Tuesday and so I order but don’t have faith.
I discover xxx on line. I call the number and a nice lady in Nova Scotia answers. She assures me she can have the element here by Tuesday morning. Again I order but don’t have faith.
Tuesday morning the element arrives. We’re saved. Tuesday afternoon Maytag calls and we’re saved again.
My experience with xxx is nothing but fantastic. I highly recommend you service. And I learned they do celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada but on a different date.
Thank you!

Top oven sensor

The oven did not auto clean. Problem was the sensor stopped working. Tried to repair from the front but could not get the connector through the hole. Removed the rear panel and found the connector had melted. Could not find a new wireing harnes on line, so I cut the wires on the stove and the new sensor coupling. Spliced the wires togather. The oven cooks fine, I have not tried the cleaning cycle yet.
