Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

I have a Maytag Glasstop stove (Mer5875qas). THe left front dual burner only heats on the outside ring. The inner portion does not heat. Could it be a wiring problem or is it more likely that the burner...


There are 2 likely causes. It is more likely that the element is open circuited and needs replacing. The hotplate controller could also be faulty. The circuit needs to be tested to determine the faulty part.

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.

Electric burner does not heat up.


Hi,
The reason for Maytag electric burner not to heat up is that the heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. Replacing the heating element will make it work.
Also would recommend having the following cross verified:
· Element terminals have loose connections? Reposition the element.
· Range element shorted out? Find out by testing; replace if needed.
· Burner switch is bad? Find out by testing; replace if needed.
· Element receptacle bad?
Find out by testing; replace if needed.

I originally posted this problem March 1, 2009 as Bodhi58 and recently had the problem fixed. It turned out the burner needed to be replaced as the wire was split in the burner. The part alone was $210 but the service charge.

One burner does not work. The outer burner works, but smaller inside one gets no power. It is only 2 years old


I called Maytag and even though my warranty had expired, they offered to fix it for free. What a nice thing to do!!

COOKTOP


its been my experience that the dual burner switch is far more likely the culprit, unless you can physiclaly see the outer ring is broken( visual inspection works wonders. as far as trying to ohm out i generally look at theelemnet itself (4 wires lead to the elemnt you can trace 1 to the outer portion of element, and 1 to the inner portion.WITH POWER OFF Iswithc those 2 wires and the restore power try element ad watch for outer ring to work inner ring no good. now i know its the switch not sending power. reset wires and order new switch

Problem w/burners & lights after self clean


You may want to re-seat the right two cooking elements, in case there is poor electrical contact. When you have them removed, clean the contacts with denatured 91% alcohol and a Q-tip. The removal procedure follows.
First, unplug the range.
LIFT–UP PORCELAIN COOKTOP 
To lift:  When cool, grasp the cooktop front 
edge.  Gently lift up until the two support rods 
snap into place. 
To lower:  Hold the cooktop front edge and 
carefully push back on each support rod to 
release.  Then lower the top into place. 
COIL ELEMENTS 
➢When an element is on, it will cycle on 
and off to maintain the heat setting. 
➢Coil elements are self-cleaning. Do not 
immerse in water. 
To remove:  When cool, raise element.  Carefully pull out and away from receptacle. 
Check them for damage. They do wear out.
To replace:  Insert element terminals into receptacle.  Guide the element into place. Press down on the outer edge of element until it sits level on drip bowl. 
COIL ELEMENT SURFACE 
➢ On Canadian models, the two front elements will not operate during self-clean.To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls with aluminum foil.


If that does work, you may have a faulty control panel. In that case, call Maytag at the number below.
