Customer Question
I want to clean...

I want to clean my maytag stove. several years ago the end of the latch that locks the stove to self clean. I have cleaned it several times over the year. But today move the latch over and the red light comes on and says lockd and then I push clean and the light that says clean comes on but after several minutes it shuts off.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It just says maytag I can't see a model or serial number. I would guess 18-20 years. If it makes any difference the oven has not been over used by any means

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Well that depends on what might be wrong. With thanks giving in a couple days I'm pretty much out of time to at least clean the oven

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of, the top of stove works fine, when baking the oven works
