Our Maytag MGS5752BDS range is going on 7 years old and is heavily used. Two weeks ago, the main electronic control assembly was replaced because the plastic tabs that attach it to the front panel had broken and the assembly pushed into the front panel.
Everything was working fine until dinner prep last night. I went to ignite the left front burner, there was a spark behind the gas valve knob and no surface ignitor clicking because the power had dropped; I found the circuit breaker had tripped. I reset the breaker and tried again. This time, no spark but the breaker tripped again immediately. Same thing happens with all four burners. I can cook by lighting the burner manually, and the oven lights and heats normally.
Obviously something shorted behind the control panel? Question is, should we sink more $$$ into having it repaired or minimize our losses and start shopping for a new range?
