Maytag burner turns off and on randomly

Our biggest burner (which we use most often) just recently started turning off by itself in the middle of cooking. Any ideas?

From the sounds of it, it's the burner infinite switch.

Turn it off at the circuit breaker and leave it off for a few minutes,sometimes the microprocessor will reset itself. When you turn it back on make sure the safety switch is working ok they usually have a test button on them.

Hi

This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The problem is you are drawing too much current having all hotplates and oven on at the same time. Where I come from this would trip the circuit breaker and you would have to reset it manually. The circuit is normally rated about 32 amps.I haven't heard one of these resetting itself. Anyway, normally you should only be able to have 3 to 4 elements working at the one time. Any more and it will trip.

You will need a new switch harness part#12002789 and spark module part#74007397.

1. You can gain access to the switch harness by unscrewing 2x screws on each of the burners
2. The remove old wire harness and replace with new
3. Follow the wire from the harness it will lead to the spark module now replace it

Good Luck

Hot indicator surface light will not turn off on maytag smooth top oven cre9600bce. always stays red even when oven or cook top not in use. What part is needed.


I had the same problem, but I found out it was only when one particular burner was turned on. I waited for the problem burner to cool, then took the fist of my hand and tapped on the burner itself and the light goes out every time. Works like a charm..probably a loose connection with that one burner.

I originally posted this problem March 1, 2009 as Bodhi58 and recently had the problem fixed. It turned out the burner needed to be replaced as the wire was split in the burner. The part alone was $210 but the service charge.

Sealed Burner


Ralph, you need to look at the electrodes at the burners. They might be cracked or dirty. It's very hard to tell sometimes when they are cracked. The burner cap itself has to have a good ground and the wires going to the electrode should be on tight. You can eliminate the spark module by switching the right and left side burner wires at the module. Once you do that, if the right side works ok, but now the left doesn't, you can be pretty sure it's the module...Catriver..post back.

Igniter stays on on all four burners all the time. Had to turn off breaker to stop. Started sparking all by itself with burner in the off position.


Usually this happens when water or some type of liquid gets on one or more of the igniter switches. Let it dry for 48 hours, turn the power back on and see if it keeps on clicking. If it does, one of the switches needs to be replaced. Not a very difficult job. Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
