My two year old Maytag oven/range won't run off. Last night, I was using the oven and turned it off. Later, we noticed that the red light indicating oven or range use was still on and the oven was hot. We tried many times to hit buttons, turn the dials and disconnect the circuit, but each time the red indicator light came on and the oven preheated. Now, I just have to cut the breaker to keep it off. Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks, BDWeller

More than likely your circuit board/timer is bad. http://www.repaircli...1M75860/1515089

Any tips on removing the top assembly? I've taken a number of screws out, but not seeing which ones are holding it in place.

thanks, BDWeller

Maintop Assembly (Coil Element Models)
1. Turn power off.
2. Open oven door and remove screws securing maintop to oven chassis, located on the outside edges of the maintop.
3. Move the top assembly down, then slightly up and toward the front to unhook the back edge from the backguard.
4. Label and disconnect wire terminal plugs from the maintop assembly.
5. Lift maintop assembly from the oven chassis.
6. Reverse procedures to reinstall maintop assembly.

So, my local appliance parts store has the part for $220. I can't wait for mail order, as I've got to use the range asap.

Is there anything else I should check? That's a lot of dough to sink into something I can't return.

Thanks again, BDWeller
