That unit was manufactured in August 2008. It was one of the last put out by the actual Maytag corporation before they sold out to Whirlpool.
Looking at the wiring diagram I see that this unit does have a high limit thermostat on it(which is why it doesn't have the white wire). If this unit was hooked up incorrectly or it had a surge to it, this high limit could have popped. Look at the schematic in the lower right hand corner and you will see the limit. You will need to test it for continuity. You can also temporarily bypass it to test the unit.
I will check that and get back to you, looks like we are on the right track tho. Unit is in pristine shame with no wire nut marks on the ground or power wires, suppose the ends could have been snipped. I just wonder where it has been for the last3-4 years? It does say maytag on the tag tho. I will run right out and chech it, bak in a few. By the way, why does the fan run all of the time when the burners aren't even on?
Thanks Robert, I will check it uder power.
You sound really handy but please be careful. I don't want you getting hit by that electricity.
Well looks like I have power past the switch and in the few places that I could wiggle my probe down into the connectors to the circut board there was 220 across the legs. ;-(. Is the $226 for the entire circut board or are there aditional parts that I would need? I can't see anything else that could be the problem. Power to the circut board and no lights or burners activating. Any other words of wisdom, and where is the best place to order the circut board? Is it possible to speak with you later if this isn't the fix?
I found a new one on ebay for 99 dollars with a 14 day return policy:
I hope that helps out. If you need to get ahold of me later just come back to this question link in your email. It is possibly in the spam folder. I will respond when I am online.
