Customer Question
I have a maytag gas...
I have a maytag gas stove with two ovens. It has worked fine up to this point (it's about 5 years old). Yesterday the stove top would not ignite on its own, and when I used a lighter to light it, it lit. I turned that one off to try another the same way, there was a flash under the lid near the knob and smoke came out. I tried it again today with the same results. The breaker also trips when this happens. Is this fixable, what is it, and if it is fixable is it expensive to repair?
Thanks.
