Element in oven sparked at corner and now will not heat

The heating element burned through -- it needs replacing. Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element. To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

The oven shuts itself off after preheating.

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Coil burner stays on even when in the off position on my maytag range.

The switch control for the burner has gone bad.

If you can get me the model and serial numbers from the tag on the range and tell me which coil is having the trouble I can assist with repair part numbers and tell you how to repair if needed.

Your range is stuck in SABBATH mode. You should be able to press and hold the clock button for 5 seconds to reset.

Maytag oven not getting hot enough

When you put the oven into bake it preheats with the bake and broil element both.  The broil element is most likely your only heat source if it took that long to cook the pie.  Need to verify that the bake element is coming on.  If it isn't then the problem is either in the control or the element itself.  Give me the model # off the sticker on the oven and I can help you do the check out.  In the mean time see if the bake element is getting hot.
