Maytag / less than 1 1/2 year old stove caught fire without being used

I purhcased a new Maytag stove in late summer 2007. In the early morning of Saturday October 4, my new Maytag stove started on fire! The stove had not been used since the previous afternoon and it started shooting flames up my kitchen wall! Fortunately there was a fire extinguisher nearby and I was able to put the fire out before any real damage was done to my home. I have notified Maytag, however, they have not responded. I realize I am past the 1 year warranty, but I do believe that something as serious as this needs to be addressed and I am entitled to some type of response at the very least. I am going to have to replace this stove at my own expense for something that is obviously poor workmanship in the control panel. I would think that Maytag would not want to be responsible for what perhaps in the future would be a deadly fire because of their product.
