Question about Maytag MER8770WS 30" Freestanding Electric Range - Stainless Steel

1 Answer

Maytag Range won't heat up oven or cook top

Bought my Maytag range January 2011, so it's not very old. Two night ago I started to cook dinner, turned the oven on to preheat, and started to boil some water. I know that the burner was starting to get hot. Maybe 2 minutes later I noticed a weird smell, almost like a burnt rubber type smell. I opened the oven to check and it wasn't coming from there. The smell went away quickly but then I realized the burner had stopped getting hot and the oven would not heat higher then 215 degrees. What's going on?

    I should've stated that the lights and panel come on but no heat to either. Still internal wiring? Or the control panel not talking to the heating elements?

you have just triggered an exothermic reaction of light hydrocarbons and oxygen as a result of introducing an external heat source trigger. Which could possibly result in the cooking of some dinner. Yum.

Burners wont work any more


Good Morning Fern mullen, I appreciate your post!
Based off what you have described your burners are no longer working on your Frigidaire range. This could be an issue with your control panel or the switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your range and you can do that by disconnecting power from the range for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue I would suggest having a technician out to your home for a proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

Maytag accellis 2x stove won't heat-up, does power-up, light comes on but no heat


Buy a new stove element. If you open the stove look in the back. It should be black. It might have a crack or be clearly broken. This is a cheap fix. If you want to be sure that it is working at the connection unplug the element and pull it out. Put a volt meter into the prongs. Turn stove on and see if its putting out voltage.
