How do I remove the stove top on a Maytag Range Model # mgr7665ws?
Please re verify the model number please?
No.....I took off the burner covers and removed the two screws on each burner but there are two metal clips under the stove top and I can't get them two disengage.
Do you press them in from the front or off the stove top?
This would be at the front of the range just above the oven door where the top meets the frame.
It seems that the clip is connected to the oven top by a screw and I can't get it to budge.
Where did you locate this model number you gave me? It does not come up in any of my databases?
The range is brand new and I scratched the oven top and have the new top to install. The model number is on my receipt and the Maytag Ranges Spring 2009 brochure. It is MGR 7665 W.
I just found the spec sheet. Model # MGR7662WS. Sorry.
Found a diagram now of the unit, the clip you push in is supposed to be in the middle of the 2 gas controls on the front on each side of the front. The diagram is not very good at showing everything on it, but looking how everything else is attached the clips would have to be there.
If you can send me the diagram I'll keep trying or do I just go to the Maytag dealership where I bought the range.
The clips or brackets are on the right and left front corners and are screwed to the oven top.
There should have to be 2 clips that are spring loaded holding the top on. The diagram does not show any clips however there has to be 2 of them as where the 2 screws hold on the gas controls are underneath it, you may need to go to the dealership to see if they can show you where they are.
I called the dealer and they really didn't know so I took another look at the bracket from the side and realized that if I took off the burner dials and removed the panel it might give me a better view. It did and I found the stove top was held down by one screw on each side so I removed them along with the screws on the burners and bingo the stove top easily came off.
Glad it worked for you...
