Question about Maytag MGS5870 Gas Kitchen Range
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.
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.

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.
