How do I locate the bottom bake element on the stove which is hidden. The lower element quit heating.Thanks
Answer Hello Gary. Pull the unit out and remove the panel on the back of the unit to access and replace the element. Make sure the power is disconnected.
Oven was on & stopped working, the broiler is working either. The oven is not warming up. Although, everything else is working such as light/clock/timer/start button
You will want to check to see if you are getting power at the control with the unit set to bake check from L1 to bake and if there is 240 vac then the control board would be the cause of failure.
My element went out, so I changed it. I turned on the oven to see if it works. It's been 3 hours and it is still not on 350. The oven is getting hot, it is moving up 5 every half hour or longer. It is at 245. What is wrong now?
You will want to check the clock assembly to make sure that you are getting power between L1 and bake with unit turned to bake. If not then you will need to replace the clock assembly. If you do have the 240 vac then you will want to check at the element to make sure that you are getting 240 vac and if not then trace wires back to terminal block and look for damaged wiring.
The oven does not work. When I turn it on it reads 100 degress and stays there. Does not heat. The burners on the top of the stove do work..
Answer Hello Tom. Test the element and make sure it reads closed on the unit. If so, and you are not getting 120 volts from the control to the element, you will need to order and replace the control 5701M719-60 on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Im wanting to replace heating element in the oven. part # AP4701262. Im not seeing how to get to it.
Answer Bob, The Bake element is located under the oven bottom panel. Heres some help, after you turn the power off to the range, and remove the oven door and racks " Bake Element 1. Turn off power to unit. 2. Remove screws securing oven bottom cover. 3. Raise the back of the bake element cover and slide cover back to release the front edge of cover and lift out of oven cavity. 4. Remove screws securing bake element to rear of oven wall. 3. Pull element forward to allow disconnection of terminals on each element leg. 4. Reverse procedure to reinstall bake element." Thanks and Good Luck
My maytag oven bake element popped, flashed, and broke during operation I do not see any that look like the one in my oven on your display. Did it just wear out and break, is it saft to replace ? Is it easy to replace ? Thanks B.T.
Answer Hi Brian All elements when off has standing power on them so disconnect the power. Then remove the door and storage drawer. Then you remove the racks. Remove the element mount bolts. Then pull out the unit. Then remove the back cover. Remove the element wire connectors. Then go to the front and pull out the old element. Then slide in the new one. Bolt it ion place. Go to the back and re-pack the insulation back around the element terminal studs as they pass to the back of the unit. This will allow the heat to stay inside the cavity and not burn out wires or conectors in the near future. This failure is a common one for elements. Reassemble in reverse. Part # W10276482. Thank You.
