Maytag range repair issues we can handle
Ranges come in many styles, and Sears Home Services appliance repair experts can perform quality Maytag range repairs on most any type. A repair technician from our team begins a service call by diagnosing the appliance's malfunction and makes repairs fast to get you cooking again. They can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your range's life.
Range burners won't work
When an electric range burner fails to work or won't heat properly, it's probably time to replace the surface element. A burner that won't shut off could also signal a malfunctioning surface element, but it could be an indicator of a faulty surface element switch.
When a gas range burner fails to light, make sure food spills are not clogging the holes in the burner head and blocking the release of gas. If clear, the gas may not be lighting because of a broken spark igniter or igniter control module.
Always remember to clean up food spills after a range burner cools, whether you have an electric or gas range. Keeping them clean will help extend their life.
Oven not heating evenly
When your oven fails to cook food evenly, it could be as simple as adjusting rack placement or electronic calibration of the oven. You can always test the temperature setting with an oven thermometer. Failed parts that can cause the problem include an oven igniter in gas ovens or the baking element or temperature sensor in electric ovens.
Oven won't heat to right temperature
A range that won't heat to the proper temperature could indicate that the oven needs to be recalibrated or a part has failed. A broiler or bake element that has a physical break or only glows red in sections signals lack of electrical continuity and needs to be replaced. It could also mean a broken temperature sensor or temperature control thermostat.
Oven light won't turn on
First, try replacing the bulb yourself. If that doesn't fix the problem, it's likely an electrical malfunction and will require an oven repair expert. Possible solutions include replacing the light switch, a control mechanism, or a connecting wire.
Preventive range maintenance
Conducting regular maintenance can help ensure your Maytag range continues to perform 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 range and other appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, excess noise, and water and gas leaks, while also cleaning some internal components.

Maytag Range repair FAQ
What types of ranges and stoves does Sears repair?
We service a wide variety of ranges, including slide-in gas or electric ranges, drop-in gas or electric ranges, freestanding or slide-in induction ranges, and freestanding gas or electric stoves. The appliance repair experts from Sears Home Services can handle them all.
Is it worth it to fix a Maytag range?
The average lifespan of an electric range is 13 years. Gas ranges average a couple more years. It's generally more economical for homeowners to fix a range if it's no more than 10 years old and the service estimate is less than half the cost of a new model.
The majority of new gas or electric ranges and stoves cost about $400 to $1,500, but higher-end products can run thousands more. Plus, consider the delivery and installation costs. If your range is older, it might be beneficial to price a replacement so you can be prepared to make a decision when you receive a repair estimate.
How much does it cost to repair a Maytag range?
Maytag range repair expenses can vary by the type of issue, and the parts and time required to complete the service. Your location can also affect the price.
The average range repair costs $230 to $320. Having a new surface burner installed, the most common repair, varies by model, but costs an average of $200. Replacing a temperature sensor can cost less than $200, but installing a new glass stove top on an electric model can cost more than $600.
All work done by your Sears Home Services certified repair technician carries a 90-day guarantee. If you decide against proceeding with the repair, you'll typically pay only a service appointment fee, and you'll be eligible for a discount on a new unit.
How long does it take to repair a Maytag range?
When you contact Sears Home Service to get your range fixed, it's easy to schedule an appointment online or over the phone for same-day or next-day service in many areas. Our range repair technician will come to your home, diagnose the problem, and make the repair efficiently.
Sears Home Services stocks many parts for most brands of ranges, but sometimes access to parts, especially for older appliances, can delay repairs past the initial service call.
How do you know when it's time to replace your Maytag range?
Both gas and electric ranges can last up to 15 years or longer depending on usage. Keep in mind that normal wear and tear on cooking appliances can create a fire hazard in older units.
When a Maytag cooking appliance is nearing the end of its lifespan, watch for warning signs that it's time to purchase a new model:
- Electric elements take too long to heat up or fail to burn bright red on high
- The glass cooking surface in an electric range is cracked
- Gas flames flicker from red to yellow instead of burning blue
- Smell of gas
- Rust in the oven
- Stove elements that fail to work, often caused by faulty buttons or wiring
What are the benefits of repairing a Maytag range?
If it's not too old, the greatest advantage of repairing your Maytag range is the money you'll save by not having to buy a new one. Otherwise, as long as the problem isn't a health or safety hazard that requires replacement, weigh the cost of repair against the unit's age.
You also might want to consider environmental tradeoffs. Putting off replacement means not disposing of the old unit, though there are ways to recycle. However, new appliances are becoming ever more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
