Maytag Corporation Complaint - Maytag Design
This Maytag Range is a 5 burner gas range with a see-through oven door. There are several problems with the design of this door. The first is that the door window consists of three panes of glass. The two inner panes of glass are sealed together to insulate the oven and perform nicely. the out glass has a tendency to get very dirty on the inner surface of glass.
This is caused by the fact that the oven door is used as vent for the oven. Instead of porting the vented vapors around the clear opening, the vapors pass over the surface of the glass. Since the exterior of the oven is nominally at room temperature these vapors condense with the consequent mess.
Even this would not be all that bad if the design allowed simple removal of the glass - it does not, it is difficult. It was only through a lot of frustration and searching forums that I discovered the tricks to removing the oven door and glass. After cleaning everything I went to reinstall the oven door - another problem. The specified system did not work at all. Again I had to search forums for the answer. I have always like Maytag appliances, but these are the last I buy - the quality is going downhill.
