How to Fix the Electronic Range Control on a Maytag Oven


Maytag ranges have both a stove and an oven. The temperature and functionality of the stove and oven are controlled by the electronic range control board. This control board is housed in the upper control panel of the range and contains the clock and oven controls. If the control board is damage or malfunctions, the oven or burners may not function properly, if they function at all. To resume normal operation, you must remove the rear panel of the oven and examine the electronic range control connections. If the connections have not become detached, you must replace the electronic range control.

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Pliers
  • Pull the range away from the wall so that the rear is accessible and then unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. It may be necessary to lift the front of the range while pulling if an anti-tip bracket is installed.

  • Remove the screws surrounding the top-rear panel, behind the control panel of the range. Remove the rear panel.

  • Examine the electronic range control board for any loose connections. If a wire connector is loose, plug it securely into the rear of the control and then reassemble the range and test it for functionality. If all connections are secure and the Maytag oven and stove don't function, replace the electronic range control.

  • Remove the screws securing the electronic range control to the control panel. On some models, retaining tabs may be used in place of screws. To release the retaining tabs, twist them with a pair of pliers. Remove the electronic range control.

  • Place a new electronic range control in position and secure it using the tabs or screws that were removed.

  • Transfer the wires from the old electronic range control to the new electronic range control.

  • Replace the top rear panel of the range, plug the range into the outlet and then push the appliance back against the wall.
