I know  how frustrating it is to have essential parts of our cooking appliance stop working.  I have attached information that will hopefully get you through these repairs and cooking again.  If you do not feel comfortable making these kinds of repairs, you can schedule a technician at Sears Home Services

 To replace the lower bake element, part# 7406P428-60.  Disconnect power to the range.  Remove the two mounting screws holding the element.  Carefully pull the element out until you can get to the wire terminals. Unplug the wires from the old element and plug them into the new element.  Be careful to not let wires drop back through the back wall opening before you have them connected to the new element.Reinstall the element to the back wall with the  mounting screws. Done.

The right front burner may be the burner element or it could be the infinite switch. The first two images below will help remove the top and replace the triple element. 

There is a quick test you might try if you are not comfortable using an ohm meter to test parts. Perform one quick test to verify that your likely failure is in that inner coil of the element. With all of the burners turned off, try to turn that inner burner on and see if the Element On light illuminates. It probably will. See if that the light turns on when you turn on the inner 2 coils of the triple element. This may help you verify that the element is bad. If the Element On light does not turn on when the 2 inner coils are set to heat, then you more likely have a failed burner switch. This quick test is not completely conclusive but it may help you determine whether you have a bad burner switch or a failed element. If the Element On light is turned on in both situations, then your likely failure is the element.

If the infinite switch is the issue, use these instructions to replace part #74010824.  To replace the switch, use the following instructions.

 

 Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing that burner switch. Pull the knob off of the front of the switch. Remove the back panel behind the console. Note the location of the wires connected to the back of the burner switch (take a digital picture to document their locations). Pull the wires off of the switch and then remove the screw from the front of the switch next to the stem that houses the control knob. Pull the switch out and replace it. Properly connect the wires and reassemble the range.This video will help.  parts can be ordered at Sears Parts Direct.

Q:

Why won't the oven control panel work on my Maytag range even though the stove top works?

A:

A power surge or glitch through the electrical lines during the type of power outage that you experienced can sometimes damage an electronic control board in appliances. You can try unplugging the range or shutting off the breaker for 5 minutes. After restoring power, the electronic oven control may begin operating properly. If not, then it will likely need to be replaced. A technician would normally check the voltage going into the control board before replacing it. I do not recommend that you attempt to check this type of live voltage yourself. Since the burners work, this verifies that you have proper voltage supplied to the range. It is highly unlikely that a power surge or glitch would have affected the wires going to the electronic oven control board. You should be safe in replacing the electronic oven control board to fix this problem without attempting to check the voltage going into the control board.

You can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 8507P301-60.

To make this repair yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Unplug the range or shut off the breakers to completely disconnect electrical power.
  2. Remove the vent deflector by taking out the screws located on the underside of the back guard.
  3. Remove the screws securing the back guard panel to the back guard housing. (Screws are located on the bottom and back side of control panel.)
  4. Place a towel or other item on the smooth cook top to protect it. Lift the back guard up, tilt it forward and lay it on the towel that you placed on the cook top.
  5. Remove the screw securing the mounting plate to the back guard.
  6. Switch the wiring from the old control board to the new control one wire connection at a time.
Reassemble the range and test it.

You can view a parts list diagram of your range on the Sears PartsDirect website. This may help you disassemble the control.

If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely complete this repair, I recommend calling a service technician.
