Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag gas stove, bought in 2005. The oven is rusting and there are a few pinholes in the bottom of the oven.

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

Purchased in spring of 2005. There is no model name on the stove.

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

Is that even an option?

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

Is it dangerous to continue using?

The pin holes in the bottom aren't a bit issue unless you split through the holes and they happen to drip onto the igniter which can short it out. Other than that, the holes won't really affect anything . Now if you have holes in the sides, back, or top of your oven liner---that is a big problem and it's unsafe to use the stove. The floor of the oven should be replaceable separately depending on your model number however.
