Default Wiring Mistake
Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years

I originally wired my Maytag built in oven wrong. This was done by wiring the red and black wire from the oven to the black wire from the wall, the white wire from the oven to the white wire from the wall, and the bare wire form oven to bare wire from wall. I know what I did wrong and now that I have wired the oven correctly the oven does not turn on. When I had originally wired the oven wrong when I turn on the breaker the oven fan kicked on and then there was a pop sound, a flash, and a burned plastic smell. Please help. What damage have I caused from my mistake?

Odds are you blew the control board.

Since you had a pop open it up ans see if you can find any evidence where it shorted out.

A model number may help get you info on he cost of repair parts.
