SOURCE: Gemini Range Dual Burner

Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.

Has anyone else had a serious problem with the electrical wiring in their Maytag Gemini Gas Range? Without using the stove, the ignitors started firing and then stopped when I turned all the burners on....


Same problem here - and I have read about others with this problem. Usually blamed on moisture getting into the control unit ( which is under the backmost burner knob). I did not have a spill on the cooktop, nor was I "over zealous" cleaning. Looks like a bad design. Waiting to hear from the technician how much THIS is going to cost me...

Used self cleaning feature of my electric Maytag Gemini stove. Lower oven glass window in door basiciall cracked into thousnads of small pieces. What did I do wrong and how do I get the stove fixed?


You didn't necessarily do anything wrong. The glass may have been banged at some point and weakened it. The only thing you can do is call an appliance parts store with your model and serial numbers and get them to look up the price and availabilty of the lower oven, inner glass. If you can get the door off the range, and it should come off, it may be more reasonable for you to take the door into the shop where you ordered the glass and get them to put it in for you.

Inner burner -- front right burner - does not heat up


You will have to check your stat.this is the switch which controls the power to both parts of the ring.It may be faulty.This is a thermostatic switch.It can be checked with a mains test lamp.If this is ok then check the spade terminals are still intact at the ring itself.

Maytag Electric Ceramic Glass top stove


You can replace the failed component which is either the burner or the switch that controls the burner. A voltage test would have to be done to determine which compoonent has failed. Generaally it is worthwhile to repair the range.
