Maytag Corporation Complaint - Bad Stove
PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- I little more than two years ago I purchased a new Maytag Gemini gas range model number MGR6875ADS. Yesterday when turning on one of the burners the burner switch caught fire and I was electrocuted while trying to unplug the stove. The repair technician told me all of the switches would need to be replaced at a cost of $280. He said this is a common problem with the stove as it is easy for moister, cleaning fluid, grease etc to drip past the knobs and collect on the switches as they are unprotected, located just under the cook top, and then will short causing the electrical fire. As the gas stove was invented more than a century ago I firmly believe this is a design flaw and these stoves should be retro fitted with some kind of gasket that will protect the electronic parts from the moister inherent to usual usage or Maytag should provide a new stove (given I spent $1,300) with this problem resolved.
I contacted Maytag via e-mail but I have yet to receive a reply. I will share what they have to say.
