Maytag continues to trip the breaker

My maytag has continued to trip my breaker box, every single time I've used it. I've called an electrician out to look at my breaker box and he saw no problems. Even when I use only one eye, and it's on medium high or even medium it trips the breaker. Also, any time I try to use the over part, it trips off after a few short minutes. I will continue to go and switch the breaker on, and on and on every time it trips. Usually about 4-5 time per 30 mins of use. PLEASE HELP!

    I have a whirlepool electric stove which is a little over a year old. For the first several months all elements worked fine. Six months later I noticed the breaker would trip when I used all four elements so I stopped using the four at the same time. This continued to happen when I used three and two so I used one element for a while and now I can't even use that one becuase after around 3 minutes the breaker will trip.

    What might the problem be?

Hello citrusfruit
Hello ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

Sounds like you have a short circuit in your electric range!
What is the model # ?
How old is this range?

You will need a good service tech, hands on for this!
Let me know how it goes,

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old range

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Thank You, HUUUM

The stove made a popping sound and the circuit breaker popped.i reset the breaker and it popped instantly.

Since you have a gas kitchen range, finding the problem should not be that difficult.

1. Make sure all switches are in the off position. Then reset the circuit breaker. If it didn't trip, then turn one knob on at a time (and then off) until it trips.

2. If the circuit breaker triped with all knobs off, then it would have to be something that is always on like the 12V transformer.

Hopefully, this wiring diagram will be of help.

When I plug in my laptop, a vaccuum, or some other electrical item like that, the circuit breaker trips.

have you got anything else plugged into the circuit? e.g kettle, toaster? if so you could be overloading the circuit. also don't know what country you are in but in Australia it is a 16 amp circuit breaker with 2.5mm cable. if your Circuit breaker is less than 16 amp check with an electrician and he could replace it and fix your problem. if it is already 16 amp you are most likely overloading the circuit by drawing to much amperage from the circuit.

Frigidaire range PLES399EC tripped circuit during baking and breaker will not reset

It may have burned up the breaker. Depending on how comfortable you are with electric, you may want to call an electrician, especially since you are dealing with 220.
The best way to tell if the breaker is bad is to disconnect the two load wires from the breaker itself. If it will then stay open, the problem is likely with the range- check for continuity between the load wires going to the range... if you get continuity call your appliance repair man. If the breaker still trips, you need to replace it Sometimes with 220 this happens. Make sure you know what type of panel you have (or bring the old breaker with you) when you go to buy a new one. Also make sure they installed the correct amperage breaker (I think it should be double 40 amp)...
As I said if you aren't comfortable with electric call a pro.

Maytag Performa Electric Range (PER1510) tripped circuit breaker when immediately following turning the oven on. There was a mild electric burn smell from behind the range. I have left the circuit...

first, un-plug unit and remove rear access cover,it could be a wire with bad insulation that has shorted to the body of the unit,could be an oven/broiler element,could be one of your feed lines to the unit shorted to ground,does it trip brkr w/o anything turned on???you can also isolate the problem that way.good luck

Keeps tripping circuit breaker everytime on plug the power cord in

2 common, possible problems. 1 - there is a "short" in the plug - easy fix - replace either the cord or plug - not expensive. 2 - bad control board - not so easy, not so cheap. Is it brand new, used? Also, it could be a bad "internal breaker" - not easy!

My oven won't work on bake but everything else is operational

Most likely have a bad heating element. Check for continuity in the element. Make sure to trip the breaker or unplug the unit before removing the element. 120 volts still run through the element even though it is not turned on. Takes 240 volts to make it glow red.

Maytag stove mer6769baq trips the breaker whenever plugged in

It sounds to me like there is a short circuit either in the plug or the connections at the stove. It could also be within the stove although that seems very unlikely. If this happens when your using the stove, the breaker and circuit could be undersized (required breaker size-50AMPS) Check all wires and the breaker.

I have a Maytag Gemini oven and it just beeped and said it needed service with an F-1-1 code I think. Can I retrieve this code to make sure and will it hurt the oven to continue cooking at 200. Stove...

I got the manual out and after reading see that this is a function code. I will now flip the circuit breaker obviously at the box - I will attempt to clean both ovens and see if that cures the problem. If it doesn't then, I'll call service.

Does that make sense ?????????/

Oven and smooth top no functioning

Sounds like a breaker issue to me. The breaker for this one should be located outside (if you're in a home) near the electric meter. Open the breaker box and look for a 40 or 50 amp breaker set (your oven uses 2 separate breakers, they are side by side in the box). Even if they don't look "tripped", go ahead and trip them manually and reset them. This should get you cookin' again. *Note--> Breakers can get "weak" and trip for no reason. If this continues to happen, you should have an electrician replace your oven breakers.
