That type of problem is normally caused by a failed burner switch in the control console. Replacing that component should fix your problem. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Use the full model number of your range to access the parts list for your exact model.

Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing that burner switch.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and the full model number of your range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I took out my owners manual to find the model #. I reread information about the control knobs and noticed an instruction "You must push in the knob to turn the burner on" I always do when I first turn on the burner but to lower the setting I would just turn the knob. Today I pushed in the knob when I lowered the heat and it worked. So now I am wondering do I just need to press in when changing the setting or is my burner switch failing? I quess time will tell. Thank you for your help, if I start to have problems again I will get the switch replaced.

I have a question, are the burners suppose to rise and lower heat when running? This is making the cook cycle longer. Please help my husband is ready to take it back

Hello Bruny. I assume that you have a glass top range as described in the above thread. The burners on that type of range will cycle off occasionally to prevent the glass top above the burner from overheating. They will maintain a relatively even heat source on the lower and medium settings. If you are seeing the burner cycle off at times when using it on the higher settings then this is normal. This will cause some variance in the temperature applied to the pot or pan that is on the burner. This type of burner takes some time to get accustomed to if you are used to cooking on regular coil burners. It will normally not take that much more time to cook items on a glass cook top even though the burners will work differently. If the glass cook top does not fit your needs, then you may want to exchange the range for one that has coil burners. If you can adjust to the characteristics of the radiant burners on the glass cook top and they are working properly, then you probably won't need to return that range. If you think that the burners are not working properly, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Hi Lyle My range is a Maytag - model # MER6775BAF17. The burners reduce even on lower settings. We just turn the knob to turn it on is this correct? Or as someone else mentioned above should we be pushing down and turning the knob. Please let me know. Thanks

That is correct. To use that burner, just push in and turn the knob to the desired setting. The elements on that model of range will cycle on and off even at the lower temperature settings. A relatively stable heat source will normally be maintained even though the burner cycles in that manner.

Hello, I recently purchased a home with a Maytag Glass range top. I am having issues with the burners on the top. I have not noticed it with the oven however, when i place a pot of water on the stove (lets say to hard boil come eggs) the water takes 30 min to boil. I tried using a small pot on the large burner and i was still having the same issue. The only way to keep the water simmering (not even boiling) is to put a small pot on the large burner and turn the power setting to 3/4. Any idea of what the issue may be or should i just junk it and purchase a new one? The info on the back shows that it is only 3 years old.
