Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range

Maytag cook top too hot!

I do not know the specific model but it was purchased brand new in the spring of 08. It is a smooth cook top and cooking surface works fine. However, when the oven is in use the cook top gets really hot to the point it is burning to the touch. No burners are turned on just the oven. Baked cookies the other day and when finished set on cook top to cool and the cookies actually burned. Any other complaints of this nature or ideas as to what may cause this?

Remove cooktop and check to see how much insulation is below the top, on top of the oven cavity, You may want to install some more insulation. The specs for this range probably allows this to happen. you should not put anything on the top after cooking in the oven, as glass breakage may occur.

Why are the hot buttons under the suface of ceramic cook top always on?


This is usually the infinite switch has failed. They are easy to check and inexpensive. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/infiniteswitchvideo.html that will walk you thru testing this. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

New whirlpool range (smooth top) burners cycle on and off. Example.. turn on, 23 sec, off 28 sec, on 12 sec, on 11 sec off 30 sec, on 14 sec, etc. Impossible to cook properly


ok
i have been called out alot on this,,,,
believe it or not thats 100% normal
you are not cooking with those burners, you are actually cooking from the heat of the glass.
your "burner" element will cycle as needed to keep the glass your pan is sitting on at the temp you set
let it heat up, the glass will get hot quickly, GAS FAST as they say....
dont worry about the cycling put your pan on top and begin to cook,, it will work

Stove burner gets red hot


Since you do not have a thermostat control on your burners, I would suspect you may have an infinite switch (burner control), that controls that particular burner, possibly starting to go bad. The thermostat control is located on the infinite switch itself and may be cycling on and off improperly. Its hard to tell with intermittent problems, however. If in doubt, you can do a comparison between a working 8" inch burner and the one you are having problems with.

Another thing to consider with these coil type plug in burners, the receptacles under the cook top that they plug into can gradually become loose over time and cause the burners to arc. This may also cause excess current flow through the burner and will eventually cause burner coil damage and/or receptacle failure. I would troubleshoot this by, first, by unplugging the appliance and inspecting all the burner receptacles. If any show signs of burning or melting, replace them. You will need to lift the cook top to access them. Locate the screws under the bottom front edge of the cook top (open the oven door to see them) and remove them. With the screws removed, the cook top will lift up. Prop in place using the hinge supports.

NOTE: Remove the burner coils and bowls before lifting the cook top.

Replacements parts (including burner receptacles) can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspro.com, searspartsdirect.com, or repairclinic.com.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Yes you can replace the top. I tried looking up the part number for you but the model number was not valid. There should be 4 more numbers after the 9656. When i get a valid model number i can get you the part number and a price. thanks
