I have a code displayed F 1-2 I would like to replace the lower oven sensor before I have to pay for a new panel. I unscrewed the sensor in the lower oven but it is connected to a long wire. Do I have to disconnect from behind oven? If so were do I find that part to disconnect from the back of oven? Also if you have the part number that would be great..thanks for all your help...

1. Bake/broil elements are bad - can you see them glow red?
2. Temperature sensor is out of wack - does the temperature displayed agree with the actual oven temperature? The sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance.
3. If the elements and sensors check out and the oven "thinks" it is hot when it's not, then it is probably your control board. In this case we may be able to help you, we repair these at www.fixyourboard.com.
biggest issue with any gas oven is a faulty ignitor, not maintaining oven temp, too long to preheat, taking too long to cook, possible slight gas smell during operation, all signs of a bad ( or going bad) ignitor
Codes are correct .The back needs to be removed and your sensor is a 2 wire part ,The easiest way to make sure you change the right one is by turning oven to on and run a voltage test at each end of the thermostat.Rule follows : If oven is on you should have 115 -120 volts present and make sure you have the same at the other end of thermostat ,if you have the volts at one side and not the other than that is the bad thermostat. Please rate this !
No. just the one sensor part number 12001656. After paying a maytag repairman twice, I will now for the third time replace it myself, google the part number and you will see the different companies that sell it. Price runs up to 40.00, next time buy a different product and hope that Maytag goes out of business!!!! I know I will!!!
The oven temp sensor has gone bad. F1-2 would be for the lower oven and F1-1 would mean the upper oven. If you give me the model # from the sticker on the oven I can direct you to a diagram, part #, and price. These are very easy to replace. Should be located inside the oven in the upper right or left hand side. It looks like a silver rod about 4-8 inches long and crimped on the end. Most of them can be removed from inside the oven by removing the two screws, pull out the sensor (harness and all) plug in the new sensor, put the screws back in and your done. Some have to be removed from the back of the oven by removing the lower, larger back panel and follow the same process as mentioned above. Hope this helps.
