Hi. thanks for the question. does the door seal properly. check that..sometimes the calibration will go off. what i tell my customers to do is.buy a small oven thermometer, that you hang from the racks . then try the oven at 350 degrees .then look at the oven thermometer . and see what the difference is. so lf ,the oven temp is a bit low .cook at 375. degrees. that will make up the difference . no parts needed. cheap fix. thanks the appliance doc

Why are my rolls not cooking on the bottom but fine on the top and my element is working fine


My guess is this is an electric range. If I am right then it has 2 elements--one on top and one on the bottom. Plus you stated it has convection cooking. Sounds like the bottom element in not working right so all you are cooking with is the top element. In convection cooking the fan circulates the air for even cooking.and sometimes has its own element around the fan. Look closely at the bottom element for any burned out or melted areas that might show. Sometimes they just burn out with no outward signs.

My Maytag convection oven has the heating elements on the top. It doesn't matter if I use convection or not, metal, nonstick, or stone pans, or lower the temperature or cooking time, it doesn't cook/bake...


Stick a thermometer inside the oven. Compare the them inside the oven to the temp you see on the control panel; are they the same?
You must do this first. You will note a disrepancy. If the oven temp and yours do not match, that you have solved the problem.
Your oven sensor or thermostat might be at fault.

Was cooking I'n oven. Heard a big pop sound and saw lghtning I'n tne oven. Now oven will heat a little but won't cook or broil ?


Hello,

That sounds like the heating element went out when it first goes it could look like a lightning strike. Replacing the bake or broil element ,depending which one was on at the time will fix your oven. If you were baking replace bake element if ya werebroiling replace that one.
Reply with EXACT model number and i'll give ya the part number

My oven doesn't bake properly. Everything takes extra long to cook and even when I give it extra time the food usually isn't baked all the way through.


Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Oven heats, but not enough. Takes a really long


Change the heat element in the oven. You will find it inside the oven towards the back under the pan. The part should cost about $125.00 maybe less. I just did it on my oven.

Maytag oven not getting hot enough


When you put the oven into bake it preheats with the bake and broil element both.  The broil element is most likely your only heat source if it took that long to cook the pie.  Need to verify that the bake element is coming on.  If it isn't then the problem is either in the control or the element itself.  Give me the model # off the sticker on the oven and I can help you do the check out.  In the mean time see if the bake element is getting hot.

Oven is cooking unevenly


ladder, here are some suggestions to try to help you with this problem. Make sure that you wait another 10 minutes to put your food in after the preheat light goes out or tone goes on. The manufactures like to get that energy effecient label on these ranges. If your utensil is dark, darkened by age or glass, these will absorb more heat and can cause over browning. Lower the oven temp for these types of utensils or use a pan with a shiney finish. Make sure the utensil is not too close to any oven wall. Do not check for doneness until minimum recommended baking time. Opening the door frequently causes the lower element to cycle and provides too much intense heat. Use the second or third rack from the bottom. Finally, check the owners manual for calibration instructions. You might be off with that. Catriver...post back.
