How do you clean the un-removable burner tops

Have a brand new Maytag MGR4452BDW. THe burner tops are all one piece with the burners (unlike most ranges where you can lift them off and clean them in the sink.) It's already tough get get food spills cleaned... and I suspect down the line the burner holes will get clogged.

Any opinion or experience about this? I could still return it and get another brand with removable burners.

Edrenckh is right: all burners do twist and pull up and out, HOWEVER, they are NOT free but rather tethered by two wires each. One of them is electric to the ignition sparker, the other ?.

I live at a rental and could not find the manual until after I had removed and cleaned everything, including lifting the range top up to clean underneath. The top is NOT meant to be removes, I learned, slightly bending one of the metal clips that hold it down to the rest of the stove. Besides, there is no underneath to clean though, just thin mental pieces running front-to-back under each left and right side of two burners surrounded by insulation. Importantly, thin aluminum gas tubes supply each burner from the main gas input.

In short, think I may have bent and broken one of these tubes, causing a loud gas sound, and now the burner does light. ARrrrRggg! DO NOT LIFT UP THE RANGE TOP on this model.

I have the same model and only two of my burners pull out. I have tried to force the other two but I am afraid that I might break it. It is VERY inconvenient, but I just scrub around the burners and put the top removable parts that sit on top (where you place the pot) in the dishwasher. After the stove has had a chance to dry for a few hours, I then have to go around the burners with a toothpick and poke out the little holes where the gas comes out b/c they get clogged with soap from cleaning.

It really is an inconvenient stove to clean and I have yet to find any removable trays to buy that might fit, and that can be put in the dishwasher. It's seems like the manufacturers aren't making stoves anymore with removable dishwasher safe trays for ease of cleaning; when purchasing this stove last year, I looked and looked for a stove with removable trays and was unable to find any. It's unfortunate, and I hope that they bring this feature back to future models.

I have also had problems with the oven control touch pad on this model, so please think twice before purchasing this model!

Why do I smell gas when the hoses are good?

That stove has sealed burners. It is not uncommon for folks to try and raise the top and when they do they break the lines on the front to the front sealed burners. To lift the top ya must twist each burner a quarter turn then get it out far enough to remove the screws which hold the burner tubing in place. Once them screws is removed you can lift and look for leaks. I have also seen places where the oven tubing bends get a small leak down to the oven valve. One more thang to look for is a dim ignitor. if it is dim and weak it might be allowing a tiny amount of gas to come out before ignition. Bubble test for leaks you must!!

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove

  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

Cant get oven to work

hi Step 1: Take out the screws that hold the panels, and pull off the control knobs. On the control panel the knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight off. Some knobs may have setscrews in the base of the knobs; back out these screws using a screwdriver or Allen wrench and pull off the knobs.

Step 2: Remove the back service panel on the control panel by backing out a series of screws around the edge of the panel. To remove the front panel, take off the control knobs and remove a series of mounting screws that hold the decorative panel to the frame. These screws may be hidden by molding or trim; pry off the molding or trim with a screwdriver, or take out several screws.

Step 3: To gain access to the burner assemblies, remove the burner grates and then the top of the range. The entire range top should either lift up and off the range or open up and back on hinges. The oven door can usually be removed by pulling it straight up off the hinges on both sides of the door. Some hinges have a latch that must be unlocked before the door can be removed.

Step 4: If the surface light of the range burns out, remove retaining screws and panels as necessary to gain access to the bulb. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same type and wattage; check the ends of the old bulb for this information. Then replace any retaining panels.

Step 5: If the oven light burns out, unscrew it and remove it from the oven. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same wattage, made for oven use.
