If all the burners are out try turning your circuit breaker off then back on and try it again. If it works you may need to replace your breaker....if not I would have a technician check it out

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.

GE EVOLUTION Glass top. The hot surface(Glass top)


Individual burners, located directly under the cooktop glass, contain a temp sensor which lights up the hot surface lamp when they sense a hot condition. If the light stays on after all burners are cool, one of the sensors has shorted out. The sensors are an integral part of the burner, so the offending burner must be replaced to solve your constant on hot light.

Hot surface light indicator stays lit


The hot surface light is controlled by a part attached to the element called a limiter. For your model, the limiter is not available as a seperate item. The element/limiter assembly has to be replaced as a single unit. The top assembly, elements and limiters are all fragile parts.
If you are making this repair yourself, make sure the range is disconnected from it's power source prior to service.

Maytag cook top too hot!


Remove cooktop and check to see how much insulation is below the top, on top of the oven cavity, You may want to install some more insulation. The specs for this range probably allows this to happen. you should not put anything on the top after cooking in the oven, as glass breakage may occur.

Hot surface indicator


The component that controls the hot surface light is part of the element. If there is a light for each element you just replace that element. If there's one for the whole surface or each side you'll have to figure out which element is causing the problem.

One of my burners is out, and I do not know how to get under the cooktop


You can check the element from the switch on the control panel. Unplug the oven, remove the back and put an ohm meter on r1 and r2 terminals to check resistance. If it shows open then the element is bad. If it shows resistance then replace the switch. To remove the top there should be screws under the front part of the top which you can see when you lower the door then just lift up. You won't be removing just the glass.
