Maytag ceramic top range

Well today was the worse day of my life, i was making supper for the family and my pot slipped out of my hands and fell down on the top of the oven and put a crack in the glass top I picked up the pot quickly but the pressure spread the crack, I cried and cried all night long the oven is under warranty still, i am so heartbroken
I thought these tops were suppose to be very strong when we bought it the salesman said oh i could hit it with a hammer and it wouldn't crack bull. Anyone else have this problem? are they expensive to replace?

Try a warranty replacement first. Check with an appliance parts company for the price of a new top. Have the make and model number of your range ready. There are online appliance parts companies you can go to to see what the prices are. Just google "appliance parts" and you'll be overwhelmed with the choices you have. It's not the end of the world.

SOURCE: Oven and smooth top no functioning

Sounds like a breaker issue to me. The breaker for this one should be located outside (if you're in a home) near the electric meter. Open the breaker box and look for a 40 or 50 amp breaker set (your oven uses 2 separate breakers, they are side by side in the box). Even if they don't look "tripped", go ahead and trip them manually and reset them. This should get you cookin' again. *Note--> Breakers can get "weak" and trip for no reason. If this continues to happen, you should have an electrician replace your oven breakers.

SOURCE: Gas Range has inconsistent gas flow

From what you've described and what I understand; the only part that requlates the gas flow "low or intermitten gas flow/pressure" is the "gas pressure regulator" located where the incoming gas flex-line connects directly.

The pressure regulator is about 3" x 3" metal square blockish' type device and can be replaced fairly easy. However, if and when replacing the pressure regulator, ensure you are using the proper gas - yellow teflyon tape of pipe dope paste to thread in the new part.

What is the model number of the range? (free standing - gas pilot only)

(The above suggestion is assuming you have the proper gas supply pressure to your home/range)

The top of my maytag gas range get SUPER hot

The repair man probably checked to make sure the various parts were working i.e. the burners light and burn properly. The fact that it seems to be dependent on whether or not there are pots over the burners makes me think that somehow they are set too low with respect to the top of the range. If that were the case, the heat would not be able to flow up and out but would rather build under and transfer into the range top. Keep in mind however that ranges in general be they gas or electric put off a lot of heat and metal loves to conduct heat, so the top will definitely heat up. But if this is beyond normal heat, I would look for something that is allowing the heat to transfer to the top when you have pots there.

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.

Burners not working on a Maytag Electric Range

The top of the range will open if you remove the three screws under the front edge of the top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. But first, unplug the range or turn of the circuit breaker. There's still live voltages (240VAC) even with the range turned off. Also use care not to lean on the oven door or you could damage the springs. If the top does not have any brackets to hold it up you may need to find something to prop it up, or use a second set of hands. The elements are easily removed by removing a couple of screws and the some wires. Write down the wire colors and where they go to assist in making sure you reconnect them correctly. Also, pay particular attention to the numbered holes on the back of the element. Make sure you reconnect the retaining brackets in the same numbered holes as you removed them. Last of all, do not handle the ceramic material or element coil with your bare hands. They are fragile and the oils from your hands could create hot spots and potentially ruin the element. I do not know the arrangement of your elements, but I suspect you have one of each size burned out. The part numbers are as follows: 6" element: 1032743 9" element: 1035285 The prices are about the same ($40 ea.) with the larger element costing slightly more. I hope this helps you.
