Burners not working on a Maytag Electric Range

We purchased a Maytag Electric Range in 2004, it is a Performa PER5750QAW. That is the code on my reciept. The back right burner has not worked for awhile and now the left rear one may be going out. How can we change the elements or whatever is in them and how do we even get the top open. Thanks sparklwoman

    replaced the 8" element, that wasn't the problem. Why else isn't it working?

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.

Maytag performa range oven top

If there are any screws around or in the burners, they have to be removed first. Once all the screws are removed, use a blade to loosed the burner. Then try turning again.
if you do get it open, lift just an inch or two to make sure you are not stretching any gas lines. They will break then you will need a new stove.

Maytag performa code: 5Ab

Your range is probably in the Sabbath mode. The error code shown on the display is"Sab", not "5ab".

Press and HOLD the clock pad for 3 seconds to disable the sabbath mode. The range will return to normal functions.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,
