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.

Burners work, no display, no oven light, can't turn on oven, buttons don't function

Check your circuit breakers, they should be double breakers. Probably 30 to 50 AMP. Sometimes one side of a double breaker will trip or fail. This will give the appliance 120 volts instead of 220. The "leg" of the 220 volt circuit that is out might control the stove's display, and the oven would not work on 120 volts. If the burners aren't as hot as they should be, or are slow in heating up it would also indicate a faulty breaker If it's not the breakers it's likely a problem in the stove circuitry.

First my Maytag smooth top stove stop working while I was baking. Then the oven no longer worked. The oven light and clock still work. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Go to your breaker box and turn off the breaker wait a few minutes then turn it back on if this doesn't work let me know

Magic Chief "Chateau" double oven,

I just had the top completely off of our Magic Chief, which I love and refuse to part with, to fix a problem with one of the burner switches. I believe if you pry up gently in the crack in front with a blade, i.e. small pry bar or screwdriver, being very careful to not chip the paint, the top will snap loose from the two prongs that hold it in place. Then if you disconnect the cluster of wires going to the burners, which is very easy to do, (they just plug together) and remove one screw holding the ground wire toward the back, you can lift off the whole top and get to all of the good stuff. I find the quality of our old Magic Chief Chateau to be of exceptional quality, much better than I see today and I'm pleased that our burner problem was just loose screws. Good luck.

Hot indicator surface light will not turn off on maytag smooth top oven cre9600bce. always stays red even when oven or cook top not in use. What part is needed.

I had the same problem, but I found out it was only when one particular burner was turned on. I waited for the problem burner to cool, then took the fist of my hand and tapped on the burner itself and the light goes out every time. Works like a charm..probably a loose connection with that one burner.

No heat at burners or oven

check your fuse / breaker box make sure you have power (sounds like you dropped a leg of power) make sure breakers/fuse is on/good flip it to off the to on if oven don't work then take a look at the cord to the range check power at the wall then open where cord goes into range check power or you may even find the cord burnt in there if so replace all damaged wires good luck

Oven and smooth top no functioning

Sounds like a breaker issue to me. The breaker for this one should be located outside (if you're in a home) near the electric meter. Open the breaker box and look for a 40 or 50 amp breaker set (your oven uses 2 separate breakers, they are side by side in the box). Even if they don't look "tripped", go ahead and trip them manually and reset them. This should get you cookin' again. *Note--> Breakers can get "weak" and trip for no reason. If this continues to happen, you should have an electrician replace your oven breakers.
