How to remove the electronic control section of Maytag MGS5870?

I tried to remove the electronic control section but I don't know how to take off the top portion of the range? Is there a service manual that will show me what I need to do this? Model Maytag MGS5870ADW. Thanks for any help or advise you can give me.

SOURCE: I dont know the Maytag model - but is has a CERAN top

There are a few screws located under the front edge of the top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. Make sure you unplug the range or turn off the main breaker BEFORE servicing. There are still live voltages present with the range turned off. There are a couple of screws holding the element in place, as well as some wires. Make sure you write down how the wires were connected to assist you in reconnecting them in the right order. Make sure you also take note of the numbering scheme on the element and make sure you place the mounting brackets in the same holes that they came out of on the old element. Last of all, make sure you handle the new element carefully. Care must be used not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure. Good luck and I hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I remove the top on a Maytag range

Unplug the range from power.
Open the oven door. Look on the right and left sides of the oven frame just below the top. Remove the 2 screws. Pull the top forward. Remove the wiring harness connector at the back.Lift the top up and off. Set the top aside.

SOURCE: no model number anywhere on the range

Reach behind the upper-left corner of the control panel. There should be a 1"x8" aluminum flag that can swing up. The model, etc. is on there.

No gas to oven


The gas will not go on in the oven unless the ignitor is working as it should.
Remove the bottom panel of the oven so you can see the burner tube. Turn on the oven and watch the ignitor. When the ignitor starts to glow it should get a really bright almost hard to look at glow. If it just turns red then it is not pulling the correct amperage to let the valve know to release the gas.
Replace the ignitor and you should be good to go!

Maytag mgr5765dqd temperature problems


Unfortunately, Maytag is now a division of Whirlpool, just one of many. I don't know your range but if it does not have electronic controls, the adjustment is located within the shaft of the oven temperature setting knob. The slotted screw is fairly deep in the shaft and you will need a small flat-blade screw driver with a slim and long blade. If the oven has control electronics, this adjustment will be located on the main board with the rest of the controls and this is normally located in the upright top section of the range.

Oven burner doesn't light


If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
