Question and Answers


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


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.
