Our service providers can also recommend a maintenance plan to extend the life of your oven.
Oven won't turn on
When your Maytag oven won't turn on, there could be a simple fix, such as power not getting to the oven (check the circuit breaker or fuse box) or a disengaged child lock on some models. If you have a gas oven and the gas cooktop also fails, there could be a problem with getting natural gas to the appliance.
Barring these issues, there are several other possible problems. Some lower cost part failures include a faulty burner element, temperature sensor, infinite switch (electric) or igniter (gas), or a blown fuse (in the appliance). More expensive repairs include replacing the electronic control board which can be damaged by a power surge or a bake element that has shorted out.
Oven won't heat to right temperature
When your Maytag oven fails to heat to the proper temperature, your food could be overcooked, undercooked, or cooked unevenly. You can test whether the temperature control is functioning properly by using an oven thermometer. If it's off, the temperature sensor, temperature control thermostat or the heating elements might need replacement, or the oven may need to be recalibrated.
Oven door won't close or unlock
An oven door that won't close typically signals a faulty door lock, seal, or hinges. When an oven door without manual release fails to unlock, there could be a problem with the oven temperature sensor, door lock assembly, or the electronic control board.
Sometimes disconnecting power to the appliance for 30 seconds (unplug the oven or flip the circuit breaker) will reset the control board and the lock will release. In ovens with a self-clean feature, you can start the cycle, then cancel once the lock motor stops running to initiate a reset. Remember that ovens can take up to an hour to cool after self-cleaning. Depending on the model, the lock may not disengage until the oven has completely cooled.
Oven light won't turn on
First, try replacing the bulb yourself. If that doesn't solve the problem, it's likely an electrical malfunction and will require an oven repair expert. Possible solutions include replacing the light switch, the light socket, a control mechanism, or a connecting wire.
Preventive oven maintenance
The most important thing you can do to prevent oven malfunctions is to clean spills once the appliance cools. Scheduling annual appliance service ensures your Maytag oven and other kitchen appliances will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliances.
When you select a Kitchen Appliance Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect your oven and other kitchen appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, and water or gas leaks, while also cleaning some internal components.

Is it worth getting your Maytag oven repaired?
Homeowners with a Maytag oven that is more than 10 years old should consider replacing it if a major failure occurs. Ovens have an average useful life of about 15 years.

The average replacement oven costs about $2,000, but the prices range from $750 for a low-end slide-in up to $3,000 or more for a wall-mounted double oven with special features. Remember to add installation costs.
