You can do it youself, but get a Genuine Part Replacment, as other not original will fit but not lay flat as your original.

Most top elements are just a plug in.. find where the element joins the body of the stove and firmly pull on the element straight back from that point. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE STOVE IS TURNED OFF AT THE BREAKER

Inner burner-- front right burner - does not heat up


you have either a bad switch or a bad element. If you plan on repairing this yourself, turn off the power to the unit BEFORE removing it from countertop. A continuity tester will be needed to properly test components. Nice Saturday morning homeowner project.

Problem w/burners & lights after self clean


You may want to re-seat the right two cooking elements, in case there is poor electrical contact. When you have them removed, clean the contacts with denatured 91% alcohol and a Q-tip. The removal procedure follows.
First, unplug the range.
LIFT–UP PORCELAIN COOKTOP 
To lift:  When cool, grasp the cooktop front 
edge.  Gently lift up until the two support rods 
snap into place. 
To lower:  Hold the cooktop front edge and 
carefully push back on each support rod to 
release.  Then lower the top into place. 
COIL ELEMENTS 
➢When an element is on, it will cycle on 
and off to maintain the heat setting. 
➢Coil elements are self-cleaning. Do not 
immerse in water. 
To remove:  When cool, raise element.  Carefully pull out and away from receptacle. 
Check them for damage. They do wear out.
To replace:  Insert element terminals into receptacle.  Guide the element into place. Press down on the outer edge of element until it sits level on drip bowl. 
COIL ELEMENT SURFACE 
➢ On Canadian models, the two front elements will not operate during self-clean.To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls with aluminum foil.


If that does work, you may have a faulty control panel. In that case, call Maytag at the number below.

Burner always on high


I have had this same problem on the JP350.

I have replaced the switch several times, and am now tempted to replace the heating element and the switch the next time it becomes constant (currently, it is intermittent... which has led to some burnt food).

Help in Removing Frigidaire Smooth Cooktop Burner


What holds the spring assembly onto the bar assembly is just two small prongs. Use a pliers on the end that protrudes through the bar, squeezing the prongs together, and it should come out fairly easily.
