The digital display of the clock does not work until you turn one of the burner knobs on then the whole display lights up and we get a PF code and the clock. After resetting as per the user guide it reads E2 F3 code and none of the burners or the oven will work?
Any clues? Is there a reset code or procedure? The stove worked perfect last night and this morning we got the PF code. Yes the breakers were checked and all of the procedures for setting the clock were tried also.
Well the solution was to unplug the 220Volt connection for one minute--plug it back in--reset the clock, hit start and bingo it worked. I found on the back of the stove the technicians schematic, and error codes in a plastic envelope that described the procedure for finding--isolating--and solving the issue by the use of the error codes, which were not avaialable online anywhere but in the diagram and description for a technician's use.
I saved myself $109 dollars by avoiding the call out, but still my breakfast was four hours late!

replace your spark module have you spilled liquid on the cooktop recently? if yes let it dry for a couple of days and see what happens. sometimes when you spill liquid on the cooktop it grounds out the spark module and it will continue to spark until it drys. let me know if you need more help
Is it just one burner knob that does that are all of them? If it is just one then the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be out of alignment or loose. This happens most of the time due to a cracked switch housing(made of plastic). This can also happen if the actual burner knob is cracked and/or loose. If all the burners do this then it is just the way the cooktop works. The best way to get the burners to light is by slowly turning them on until they light and not pay attention to the "light" mark. You might need to turn it just past the "light" mark for the burner to come on.
You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.
Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.
Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck
Sounds like water got into one of the switches. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when replaced. Maytag has issued a recall on some stoves because this can be a fire hazard. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!!!!! This has happened to me with a whirlpool unit and it tripped a breaker and shot sparks across the kitchen. First go to Maytags web site and see if yours has a recall. If so Maytag will fix it free. While you are waiting leave stove unplugged and light with a match. If you need to fix this yourself disconnect the wires from the two switches this should stop the sparking. Connect one switch at a time and see which switch is bad. Most of the time the electric part of the gas valve can be replaced seperately. and you can do this yourself. If you must actually disconnect a gas pipe unless you really know what you are doing call for service.
