Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

How do you open the smooth top, on a Maytag range?

I have one triple coil, underneath my MER5775RAB smooth top range, which instead of 3 is only heating on 2 coils. I am handy on older ranges where you just lift up the top, but never did this on any smooth top type models. Any Advice? I can't find a DIY manual to tell me this online. Your experience would be appreciated, as I would like to learn this, if possible. I am carefull to disconnect electric cords, and have replaced coils before, will no problems.

    attach the pdf if you like to the email address of Thanks
    Hopefully it will show me more about this smoothtop's metal underneath with screws that need removing next, to reach the coils. Is there a disconnection at the back of the smoothtop before I unscrew this metal plate? Thanks Bob

There will be 2 or 3 screws under the front edge of the top. Take them out and top will hinge up similar to the older models.
Unplugg the range before touching any wires. There is voltage on the thermal limiter on the element even when the switch is off.
Once you have access to the element you can check for power and continuity just like on an older range.
Post back with any questions. I will see if I have a manual on pdf.

    I have a manual on the MER6770 in pdf which should be the same basic range as yours. If you will give me an email address I will send it to you.

    There should be a connection at the rear after you raise the top. I think you will find it isn't as complicated as you are expecting. I will send the manual.

    I hope you recieved the manual. I recieved a response to verify the email and clicked on the link. Most of the message was encrypted so I am not sure if I did what I was supposed to do.

Can you replace a Maytag smooth top on a slide in range?

Yes it is replaceable but expensive. Approx $334 plus shipping at sears. The glass top unbolts at the front then lifts off at rear but all the burners must be removed and mounted to the new top.

Single element in 3-way burner won't work

Hey Janice,
Sorry to hear this.. but, here is a site that will answer your question more completely.. ( I think this is a complete replacement job).. and if your are mechanically inclined, you might be able to do it yourself... good luck,,
as far as costs... that's such a wide range of "prices per hour or by the job", it would not be feasible to put a $$$ figure on here..

Oven or smooth top will not turn on. breakers are good and it is plugged in.

Unplug the range. Wait a few minutes, then plug the unit back in.  Reset the clock per your user manual. A pdf copy of your manual may be available on line at the Magic Chef site or the Maytag site, since Maytag has or had a similar model.
