Maytag does not back up their appliance

By Laurelee

from Seattle WA

Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

I bought a Maytag double oven (model MET8776BS00) less than three years ago. When both ovens started taking forever to heat up, and then burnt my food, I contacted Maytag. They set me up with a repair service, and the bill arrived today - which was about half the cost of a new oven. While I expected to pay for labor, I was not expecting to pay for parts, which I had believed was covered under Maytag's 10 year limited warranty. I spoke with Maytag via chat, and with a live operator, who both confirmed that Maytag would not cover the cost of the oven control panel that needed to be replaced. I was surprised to discover that the limited ten year warranty only applies to: 1) replacing the glass-ceramic cooktop if due to thermal breakage, 2) replacing electric surface elements, and 3) replacing the electric bake/broil oven elements (but not convection elements). To quote "Although our appliances are manufactured under strict quality guidelines, occasionally an appliance will not operate as expected, failures can occur, or components may deteriorate." As the ovens have been used less than what could be considered even normal usage during the time I have owned it, it obviously failed due to their workmanship, and I am disappointed that Maytag takes no responsibility for ensuring a quality product.

Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

Purchased with new home - in fact - I paid extra for this Range. Had one in the house I owned before this one and I knew that I couldn't settle for less. Ever try to cook Thanksgiving for 20 people in one oven??? Pretty difficult. But not with this Range and the Microwave! I can whip out a huge turkey, casseroles, gravy, veggies, etc. And don't forget the warming eye on top of the stove Make the gravy and then just let it sit to keep warm. Whether you are a super-cook, or just want to get a meal together, this Range is the BEST!!

Don't buy

Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

The control panel has caught on fire for the second time. The convection fan was loud and only worked some time. Service was terrible. Now looking for a new range. I thought I would check out the reviews and after reading some of them I am going to check a few other brands first.

Such poor quality and design - Underpowered

By N

from Worcester, MA

Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

Was so excited to get a new stove.....until I started to use it. First thing was that the burners were all not powered enough to boil water, cooking 101. The only one really strong enough to boil water is a huge burner which heated the handles on a small pan. The other side with the smaller burner is only 1K watts, under powered to boil water. The back burner marked melt is only 700 watts on high. Of course not knowing how many watts are required to actually boil make this a non-fact when selecting it, but now I know. So the unit is not even a year old and went to turn it on in the morning and the dial sparked out just turning the knob. Had to get a repair guy in here which took 3 days to schedule and then he had to order parts so almost 1 1/2 weeks with no burner to boil on!

The double oven is great, convention is good. But the size of the smaller oven does burn the bottoms because it is so close to the element. Overall, stay clear the double ovens are not worth the lack of burners on this one. Bought a new one even though this is less than a year old.

Additionally the dials are so confusing and awkward.

      Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

      We had a beautiful new kitchen put in our home last Spring. My contractor and his designer recommended Maytag appliances because of the brand's reliability and the satisfied customers they have. Satisfied until Maytag discontinued the range they had been putting in people's homes.
      We purchased matching counter depth refrigerator, dishwasher, over the range microwave and the worst range I have ever tried to use. Maytag does not allow reference to price in a review.
      I have been cooking for over 50 years. I know what I am doing and I know what a range is intended to do. This one fails miserably.
      I truely hate this thing! The worst part of this horrible product is that it will not simmer food. It will either lightly boil or if turned down just a little more will become so cool I can put my finger in a pot of soup, pasta sauce or green chile that has been cooking for two hours! I have to literally stay in the kitchen the entire time the dish I'm trying to simmer is on the stove to keep adjusting the heat -worthless!
      The icon near the controls shows a cook top arranged like a 5 die. No so. There are two large front burners , two tiny back burners and a reasonably sized middle back burner that unfortunately does not cook, it is just for warming. I've used it zero times.
      The lack of temperature marks on all but the two tiny back burners is ridiculous! The triple front burners have two settings indicated, low and hi and nothing else to indicate where the temperature changes. The front right has power boost and at the 6 o'clock position med lo, a large blank space, hi and melt, not even dots to indicate where the temperature changes! I don't want to guess!
      The specifcations that you give as burner size are untrue. The two burners that have marked controls are only 5 ¾" not 6". Who has pans that tiny? The warming only burner is 6 " but it does not reach cooking temperature so, useless. The triple burners are 11½, 8 ¾, and 5 ⅝. Why would you misrepresent something that important?
      The fan that runs every 10 seconds or so, very loudly, when not even using convection is very annoying. I was told by customer service this was to protect the electronics or something, bad design. The fan running the entire time ensures that grease from roasting meat is spread through out the entire oven!
      The FIRST time I used the lower oven a grease streak got between the two pieces of glass. It did not go away when I used the self cleaning function. The glass could not have been properly sealed. This happens to old ranges, not brand new ones! It is there forever. Yuck, a particular pet peeve of mine.
      No broiler pan, only 2 racks in the huge lower oven that would easily hold three, no keypad, requiring oh, what, about 90 pushes to set the oh so quiet timer for an hour and a half and a cook top that doesn't simmer, all that for about ... not allowed to refer to pricing. Do not buy this people, I've owned several ranges, never have I owned one with so many failures!
      Oh one more comment, the back left burner, not the knob, the burner has a a triangle on it labeled melt. No melt function on the knob, it's on the power boost burner. Makes me wonder did you take all the left over parts you had laying around, slap them all together and hope some sucker like me would buy it?

      Epic fail in design

      By Karen

      from Centennial, CO

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

      We purchased this to replace an earlier version of this range and we made the purchase because we loved the predecessor. It served us well for 15 years. Thus far, the cooking surface has performed satisfactorily and heats quicker than our previous range. I cannot say the same about the range; I am most dissatisfied with the controls and the oven. Maytag has cut so many corners in those years on the oven and controls, this "new" model is a poor and cheap imitation, only it wasn't cheap at all! The design features I loved and depended on are all gone, 3 racks in the lower oven, a rolling oven rack, QUALITY, sturdy racks with well- spaced supports, the list of what's missing in this oven goes on and on. I used to bake three trays of rolls in the main oven on convection. Now, not only are there not three racks, the wall rack supports are spaced so oddly, it's not even possible to fit the same 3 trays and roll holders in this oven at one time. The racks - only 2 now in the large oven, have very widely spaced supports and smaller items tip between them. There are still two ovens, but no longer are there two timers. What sense does that make? The controls are tedious and poorly designed, requiring the user to push "-" and "+" buttons endlessly to set timers, temperatures instead of easily entering a temp through a touch pad. The hot surface indicator is no longer a easy to see light directly ON the cooking surface, but now a tiny little light nested within all the graphics on the back within the control panel. I could go on and on. It will take me far longer and require multiple baking sessions to do the same cooking/baking activities I used to do in a single batch. I regret spending the money for this range and if I could return it I would. I will not waste my money on Maytag again. If you want thoughtful design, look elsewhere.

      Maytag double oven electric range with convection

      Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

      It's absolutely fantastic. I do a lot of baking and love the double ovens.

      I had an older model maytag double oven, but this model is even better.

      It is a pity the salesmen don't have the knowledge to promote this oven. I had a hard job trying to find out the differences between this model and the cheaper model.

      The larger oven heats up so quickly it is well worth the extra money and the top oven cooks perfectly.

      Don't hesitate to buy this. It is well worth the money.

      Maytag Gemeni

      By Sandi the baker

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Maytag 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Oven Range:

      Purchased this range about five years ago when my kitchen was renovated. I looked forward to having two ovens with the large one being a convection. Love the small oven and use it 75% of the time and I love it. Using it for making toast is convenient but it gets so hot and takes a very long time to cool down. The large oven is a disappointment because the convection feature has never worked.

      Nice having a timer for each oven but they aren't loud enough. I can't hear them in the next room.

      At first I was impressed with how quickly the burners changed temperature but after a few years they don't respond very fast. The top of the oven is terribly scratched, and I never was successful finding out what pots wouldn't scratch it. I got my first two scratches a month after it was installed using what I thought was a safe pot with smooth bottom. Tried to contact Maytag and could never get anyone to answer the phone. Now it looks terrible. I don't understand because Corning has been making glass baking dishes for years that don't scratch and there are other makes of stove tops that friends have purchased that have held up much better. I would never recommend Maytag even though my dryer is still working after 25 years.
