Maytag cooktop repair issues we can handle
Regardless of the type of cooktop you own, the appliance repair experts at Sears Home Services can perform quality Maytag cooktop repairs for problems big or small. A service call involves diagnosing the appliance's malfunction and making repairs quickly. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your cooktop's life.
Cooktop indicator lights won't turn on
Many cooktops have displays with indicator lights for temperature settings. If any displays are malfunctioning, the control switch might have failed or a bulb has burned out.
Gas burners heat up too slowly
If your Maytag cooktop gas burners are heating up too slowly, the burner openings emitting the gas could be obstructed or clogged. The good news is that a thorough cleaning will likely solve the problem. Other potential problems are a misaligned burner cap or faulty control valve.
Electric cooktop won't heat up properly
When one of your Maytag cooktop's burners won't heat up, the coil may not have re-engaged properly the last time you removed it to clean the cooktop. If that's not the problem, it might be a faulty ignition switch. If a burner fails to mirror the heat setting, it could be a faulty infinite switch.
Damaged electric coils
The electric coils on a cooktop can wear out over time, especially with heavy use. If you see any blisters or breaks in the coil, it has likely lost continuity and needs to be replaced. If you have a glass or ceramic cooktop, the coils are located underneath the surface.
A burner not heating properly also could be a sign of other problems, such as a damaged receptacle, faulty wiring, or a failed surface element switch.
Glass cooktop surface is cracked or otherwise damaged
It could happen to anybody-a pan or other heavy object slips out of your hand and cracks your glass-ceramic cooktop. A cooktop can also be damaged when a surface element's thermal limiter fails and the burner overheats causing a thermal crack.
While resin touch-up kits may be suitable to repair small chips or tiny cracks, any substantial damage requires replacement of the smooth glass-ceramic surface. You shouldn't use the cooktop (or the oven if your cooktop is part of a range or stove) until you repair or replace it.
Preventive cooktop maintenance
The most important thing you can do to prevent cooktop malfunctions is to keep your cooktop clean. Scheduling annual appliance service ensures your Maytag cooktop will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.
When you request the Kitchen Appliance Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect your cooktop and other kitchen appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, and water or gas leaks, while also cleaning internal components.
