Select the object, (and depending on what version on maya you're using, the tool will be in different spots.) Then go to normals--soften/harden and make the objects normals all hard or (0) in the tool options. That will take care of your problems. In maya 7 it's at the bottom of the edit poloygon menu.

Also, keep in mind that unmerged vertices, extra vertices, and non-planar faces can also cause shading problems. If so, smooth/hard=0 will make it look right but it won't fix the cause of the problem.

I perform smooth/hard only if I can't find any of the above mentioned issues.
