Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges
You have a problem with your oven temp. sensor. Remove it and check it at room temp. It should meter out at 1 to 1.1K ohms. If it doesn't replace it.

SOURCE: oven fault codes
"The best that I can determine from the fault codes is that the *ribbon* on the range electronic control----is not tight enough.
Turn off curcuit.
If you unplug the range and remove the rear panel behind the electronic control.
There should be a tape-like ribbon that goes to the circuit board.
This ribbon is problably not snug enough at the connection.
I've read about servicers tearing off the cover of a pack of matches and inserting it into the connector to improve the fit. This can only be done by pulling the ribbon out and looking at it to see which side is bare metal (basically flat wire) and which side is insulated or non-exposed wires. Obviously the matchbook cover must not be pressed into the side of the ribbon that connects with the pc board wiring.
John" I followed John's advice and it worked. I, a 33 yo female, removed the back panel of the stove, found the ribbon (along the back/side of the display looped and connected to the panel), detatched it, cleaned it with an eraser (suggestion from another blogger), and reattached the ribbon snugly (locked in by a plastic thing). I don't know if it was just loose or needed cleaning but it was easy to do. Sears would not even tell me what the code meant and they were going to charge me $65 for a technician to come out. We do have an electric stove instead of gas, so I am not sure if it will be any different. Good luck. Dana
