Maytag MGS5752BDS Gas Range Trips Breaker When Lighting Burner

03 February 2014 - 08:49 AM

Greetings All

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?

 

Many thanks,

Jim

 

 


Maytag Oven MGS5752BDS Ignites and Heats OK, But...

29 April 2012 - 02:03 PM

Greetings All

Our Maytag MGS5752BDS oven is about 6 years old, never had a problem with it.

Recently, we had our kitchen remodeled, and of course during construction, the oven was disconnected and moved out of the way so our new cabinets and countertops could be installed. The oven was put back right in the same place.

The oven ignites, heats and cooks like it always did. BUT...when it is first turned on, the gas starts to flow and it ignites, but there is a smell of gas for a minute or two and it seems like the flame is very "noisy", as if there is a draft or a lot of air. I can see the orange glow underneath the oven floor. I always thought the best gas flame was a blue flame, though I'll admit that the broiler (which always works fine) glows orange when it gets up to temp.

For the life of me, I can't remember if this was happening before the remodel, but it just doesn't seem right.

Am I just being a Nervous Nelson?

Thanks,
Jim

Whirlpool Duet WGD9550WL1 Door Opens Intermittantly Mid-Cycle

21 September 2011 - 11:52 AM

Greetings

My Whirlpool Duet WGD9550WL1 dryer door opens intermittantly while drying, usually with larger or bulky loads.

I've removed the two door latch "clips" and tried to make them larger at the catch end, but to no avail.

So, I purchased the latch repair kit from the parts site.

Watching the instructional video, the front load dryer featured has screws to remove the indoor door ring without removing the glass. However, it appears my dryer only has screws holding the glass and door together and not a separate ring that I could remove to replace the two catches from behind.

Do I have to disassemble the door some other way? I did not want to try just popping the catches out with a screwdriver and ruining something before checking with my favorite Appliantologists!

Humble thanks,
Jim

Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer WGD9550WL Stops Mid Cycle

20 September 2010 - 07:48 AM

Konnichiha!

Our less-than-year-old WP Duet Steam Dryer decided to stop by itself yesterday afternoon after doing several loads just fine.  This has happened once or twice before, but this one bugged me because I was trying to get the laundry done while my wife had to work on Sunday.  :X

The drum light was on (door closed, as if a Steam cycle was running) and the timer display was blinking the time left in the cycle, as was the cycle indicator, almost as if I had pressed the Pause button.  Then, it turned all the way off and made its little exit chirp.  No error codes displayed, and the Damp Signal was not engaged.  Lint screen and chute nice and clean.

Pressing the Power button brought back the display, but the Start button would do nothing except produce a chirp.  I pressed the Cancel button twice, opened the door and the load of clothes was still pretty damp.

After a couple more tries, I was able to get the dryer started, and the dryer operated normally to the end of the cycle.  Subsequent cycles worked fine.

Where do I begin, oh wise and beneficent ones?

 

Maytag Microwave MMV516BAS Control Board Problem?

28 July 2010 - 03:13 AM

Ohayo gozaimasu!

Our 4 year old Maytag over the stove microwave has had the control board replaced once before (about a year after purchase under warranty), and recently has begun going qwazy at random times. 

Last night while I was slowly reheating some corn on the cob, the unit would heat for about a minute, then act as if there had been a power failure and ask for the clock to be reset.  Once it was reset and restarted, the display would "dance" for a bit, the unit would operate and then repeat the power reset.

Lucky enough, when the PCB was replaced the first time, the manufacturer shipped TWO by mistake, so I have a back up, ready to install.

I'm humbly looking for the service manual so I can read how to disassemble the front display, install the new PCB and reassemble.

Thanks!
