Model: • MGR5870, MGS5770, MGS5870 Welcome Congratulations on your choice of a Maytag gas range. Your complete satisfaction is very important to us. Read this user’s guide carefully. It is intended to help you operate and maintain your new range.
To check if device is properly installed, remove storage drawer and look underneath range to make sure one of the rear level- ing legs is properly engaged in the bracket slot. The anti-tip device secures the rear leveling leg to the floor when properly engaged.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS About Your Appliance NEVER use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room to prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appli- ance. Also, do not use the cooktop or oven as a storage area for food or cooking uten- sils.
If the fan does not turn on, cancel the clean operation and contact an authorized servicer. It is normal for the cooktop of the range to become hot during a self-clean cycle. Therefore, touching the cooktop during a clean cycle should be avoided.
Controls at a Glance The control panel is designed for ease in programming. The display window on the electronic control shows time of day, timer and oven functions.

COOK TIME /STOP TIME Pads Use to program the oven to start and stop automatically. 1. Press BAKE or CONVECT BAKE (select models) pad. Press the appropriate number pads for desired temperature. 2. Press COOK TIME pad. Press the appropriate number pads to enter cooking time in hours and minutes.
Controls at a Glance Control Options Timer Beep Options You have a choice of three “end of timer” reminder signals: Option 1: One beep at the end of the timer operation, then, one beep every 30 seconds for the next five minutes or until the CANCEL pad is pressed.
Oven Temperature Adjustment Option If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven tempera- ture, set the temperature 25 F higher or lower than the tempera- ture in your recipe, then bake.
• Be sure all surface controls are set in the OFF position prior to supplying gas to the range. • NEVER touch cooktop until it has cooled. Expect some parts of the cooktop, especially around the burners, to become warm or hot during cooking. Use potholders to protect hands.
Do not attempt to lift the cooktop for any reason. Sealed Burners The sealed burners of your range are secured to the cooktop and are not designed to be removed. Since the burners are sealed into the cooktop, boilovers or spills will not seep underneath the cooktop.
Oven Operation Pilotless Ignition Your range is equipped with pilotless ignition. With this type of ignition system, the gas automatically shuts off and the oven will not operate during a power failure. A lighted match will not light the oven burner. No attempt should be made to operate the oven during a power failure.
NOTES . . . • Press the BAKE or CONVECT BAKE pad to recall the preselected temperature during preheat. • To change oven temperature during cooking, press the appropriate BAKE or CONVECT BAKE pad and the appropriate number pads for the desired oven tempera- ture.
Oven Operation Oven Vent When the oven is in use the area near the vent may feel warm or hot to the touch. Never block the vent opening. On free-standing ranges, the oven vent is located at the base of the control panel. On slide-in ranges, the vent is located at the rear of the cooking surface.
Oven Racks CAUTION: Do not attempt to change the rack posi- tion when the oven is hot. Convection ranges are equipped with three racks. Conventional ranges are equipped with two racks. The racks are designed with a lock-stop edge. To remove: Pull rack straight out until it stops at the lock-stop position;...
Oven Operation Broiling For best results, use a pan designed for broiling. For additional broiling tips, refer to the “Cooking Made Simple” booklet. Even Heat Assist (select models) Select ranges are equipped with a 110V electric top element which sur- rounds the broiler burner.
Clock Controlled Oven Cooking NOTES : • Highly perishable foods such as dairy products, pork, poultry or seafood are not recommended for delayed cook operations. • Clock controlled baking is not recommended for baked items that require a preheated oven, such as cakes, cookies and breads.
Care and Cleaning Self-Clean Oven Self-Clean CAUTIONS: • It is normal for parts of the range to become hot during a clean cycle. • Avoid touching cooktop, door, window, or oven vent area during a clean cycle. • To prevent damage to oven door, do not attempt to open the door when the LOCK indicator word is displayed.
To Cancel Self-Clean Cycle: • Press CANCEL pad. • If the indicator word LOCK is NOT displayed, open oven door. If LOCK is displayed, allow oven to cool, then open oven door. NOTE: Depending on the length of time the oven had been cleaning, it may take up to an hour for the oven to cool down.
• Never wipe off a warm or hot surface with a damp cloth. This may cause cracking or chipping. • Never use oven cleaners, abrasive or caustic cleaning agents on exterior finish of range. (continued) • To prevent staining or discoloration, clean appliance after each use.
• For burned on soil, remove from range, place on newspapers and carefully spray with commercial oven cleaner. (Do not spray surrounding surfaces.) Place in plastic bag and allow to soak several hours. Wearing rubber gloves, remove from bag, wash, rinse and dry.
CAUTIONS: • Do not place excessive weight on or stand on an open oven door. This could cause the range to tip over, break the door, or injure the user. • Do not attempt to open or close door or operate oven until door is properly replaced.
4. Replace bulb cover and secure with wire retainer. 5. Reconnect power to range. Reset clock. Oven Bottom The oven bottom on a conventional bake range may be removed for easier cleaning. NOTE: The oven bottom on convection models is not removable.
CAUTION: • Be sure anti-tip bracket secures one of the rear leveling legs to the floor. This bracket prevents the range from accidentally tipping. The range should be leveled when installed. If the range is not level, turn the plastic leveling legs, located at each corner of the range, until range is level.
• Check pan placement. Stagger pans when using two racks. Allow 1-2 inches between pans • Make sure the oven vent has not been blocked. See page 13 for location. • Check to make sure range is level. • Check oven temperatures when convection baking (select models). Decrease conventional •...
• This is normal when cooking food high in moisture. • Excessive moisture was used when cleaning the window. • This is normal for a new range and will disappear after a few uses. Initiating a clean cycle will “burn off” the smells more quickly.
• Be sure to retain proof of purchase to verify warranty status. Refer to WARRANTY (next page) for further information on owner’s responsibilities for warranty service. • If the dealer or service company cannot resolve the problem, write to Maytag Appliances Sales Company, Attn: CAIR Center, P.O.
