Just fund your site today. Very impressive, I had the range replaced w/i warranty for chipping enamel, and serviced for a control board. Range is now 6+ years old.
Found that a section of the element has broken off thus breaking the circuit. Please provide the steps for replacement, I have an idea how to (I'm a EE) but would still like some guidance along with any tips on how to complete the job.
Also, have checked on the WEB for the part but have not found the exact item, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Oven does not heat up, element problem
For the element you could check at www.repairclinic.com with respect to replacing the heating element you did not say which one it was (bake or broil). But you should be able the replace the elements by (first unplugging the unit) removing the scews from the panel at the back of the unit. Once removed you should have access to the "stab on" connectors - undo them then undo the two screws that secure the element inside the unit. replace with new one and reconnect and redo screws

IM NOT SURE ABOUT THE TOXICITY BUT IF YOU HEAT UP THE OVEN AND WITH A GLOVE ON HAND AND A PUTTY KNIFE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE MOST OF IT. THEN MAYBE RUN A SELF CLEAN CYCLE WHEN YOU CAN OPEN THE WINDOWS AND REMOVE ANY SMALL CHILDREN FROM THE HOUSE.OTHER THAN THAT THE SPOT YOU REMOVED THE ENAMEL YOU MAY USE A BBQ GRILL PAINT TO COVER THE METAL OR JUST LEAVE IT.GOOD LUCK!
Hello there: This conditin is usually caused by a faulty element and or the relay for the element is bad and also the temperature setting switch could be faulty so what i would have to suggest is to have the heating element replaced first cause the temperature switch rarely fails ok If you still; have the warranty with this oven i would use it the element is going to cost around 50 dollars or so ok Best regards Michael
If you bent the bottom element out list out of the way, you may have broken the actual heating element inside of the metal sheath. Or, it could have shorted to ground. After tinkering with it more, you might have caused another short, and now both legs of 220 VAC have either a blown fuse or tripped breaker.
Reply what you find is the sondition, and I will help you troubleshoot more.
you can go to the appliance parts store and get touch up enamel or Lowe's carries it too if its not too old check your owners manuel for extended warranties some are warranted for extended periods but most consider it normal wear and tear
We have a maytag stove and we cleaned our oven on the self clean cycle a week ago. I used the oven once since we cleaned it. today we went to use the oven again, and the oven will not heat and the broiler will not come on either....seems funny that both would quit working at the same time.....any suggestions....
Your BAKE element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) Board is shorted. I have experienced this problem before. The board is not serviceable and (unfornately) you will have to replace it. The board can run anywhere from $100 to $200 for a new one. Slightly less for a refurbished one. Prices will also vary depending on source. This is a repair you can do yourself if you choose to do so. If you can provide me with your model number (located inside the lower door panel), I can do some research to get a part number and price for you. Let me know. I hope this is helpful.
I had the same problem before the warranty expired. The heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. They replaced the heating element and it works as it should, however, this oven has never baked right. It gets hotter on the right hand side than it does the left and I have to constantly watch whatever I bake. I'm not very happy with this oven.
