    I just moved to this house, and can't find the model number on my range.  It doesn't appear on any of the brochures that the previous owner left.  The booklet says electric range models T2.

    There is a number on the inside of the door - 8113P322-60.

    Does this help?

Hello sherainscoug,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, My Maytag ceran oven does not bake evenly. Pizza is gooey in the middle - tonight I tried to bake a fergosa - Italian bread. Same thing. Gooey in the middle. What's up?

What is the complete model number including the number at the end of the model #

Is this a range equipped with speed bake or convection?
This means that if you click the speed bake or convection bake, a small fan starts to blow in the rear of the oven and distribute the air evenly so the goods bake faster.
If so then I'll bet the fan is not spinning!
If not you may have a faulty thermostat that would need to be changed.
I'm waiting for your complete model number!

    Here is a review I found about this range if it is the one. (Below)
    Remember Maytag and Jenn air were and are the same company.
    Like Chevy,Oldsmobile and Cadillac, the same drive train except the different features and inner design and body shape they are the same car and company.
    I spoke of the fan in my earlier post to you!
    So you may want to spend one for service call or buy your own range rather than investing blindly into some else's old problem.

    Pros: Looks Beautiful
    Cons: Nothing But Problems/ Improper Venting Causes Soot

    is a beautiful machine to look at, but I have had nothing but problems
    with it. I have had three of them delivered, and I am in the process of
    returning the third.

    The first one had a problem with the oven door not properly
    closing; it was always ajar. The second one was making terribly loud,
    knocking noises when it was preheating, which the technician diagnosed
    as a fan malfunction.
    The current one is causing an acute soot problem
    in my kitchen because it does not vent properly. The Sears Senior
    Technician examined it and diagnosed the problem: This model has a
    large metal plate blocking the vent on the inside of the oven, and the
    heat cannot properly flow. This, he said, is a design flaw in the model
    itself. Consequently, the heat is causing soot and filth to fill the
    kitchen each time the oven is on.

    Three strikes - this Jenn-Air Range is gone!

    Usually if one of these are the case, you would get an error code lighting up!
    So look at the fan when you bake on convection bake and tell me if the fan in the rear of the oven is tuning. It may take a few minutes to start till the oven gets up to temperature!

    Faulty Temperature Sensor

    style ovens with an electronic range control (ERC) utilize a
    temperature sensor inside the oven to regulate heating. This sensor
    controls the cooking modes and usually the self-cleaning mode on those
    models that have the option.

    The sensor has a very specific
    internal resistance that changes along with temperature. The sensor
    goes bad when its resistance is changed through a faulty internal
    connection or internal short.

    How to Diagnose?
    can remove the sensor and check its resistance. It should read about
    1100 ohms at room temperature. If the reading is off more than about 50
    ohms, replace the sensor.

    Recent Customer Symptoms:
    oven does not reach the set temp. and fluctuates. ( set point of 400,
    temp will reach 390 and fluctuate between 350 and 390). It check out at
    16 ohms at room temp. what I need to know is what should it read at
    what temps. Thanks


    Faulty Control Board

    Ovens that utilize a
    sensor require some electronics to interpret the sensor data and to
    take appropriate action to raise or lower the temperature in the oven.
    There are several configurations of this electronics. There are some
    electronic range controls (sometimes called ERC's or clocks) that have
    the logic and relay boards combined into a single unit. Others have a
    logic board that is separate from the relay board.

    If your oven will not keep a consistent temperature and you have verified that the sensor is not faulty, then one of these control boards could be faulty. The easiest way to tell is if the electronic range control is throwing a Fault Code.

    If it is not throwing a Fault Code, then you may be able to test the
    board(s) with the aid of a diagnostic sheet. This sheet is often
    located in an envelope that is located inside the cavity of the control
    panel. These diagnostic sheets are very model specific and usually
    provide voltage and resistance meeting that can be taken across test
    points on the boards.

How to bake pizza in rival micro wave .??how to set it?

Unless the pizza was specifically packaged for microwave use, pizza cooking in a microwave is usually a bad idea. They don't turn out well. Although microwaves are referred to as "ovens", they really don't bake things, they boil them by heating the moisture in the product. Thus, pizza crust will not rise and get crispy unless the pizza was pre-made to be microwave reheated. Those pizzas will give instructions on how to microwave them.

How to bake pizza, how much time to keep

Do you have one of those microwaves with the built in broil and bake unit where you would pull the pan out from the top?! If so, I don't know! :o ....but based on my experience in making pizzas, I strongly recommend that you put it on for 5 minutes intervals at about 375 degrees (+/- 25 degrees) and check it until the cheese in the middle is melted. I would NOT recommend putting it directly in the microwave using infrared radiation bc pizza like that tastes really bad. In an oven, put the pizza on for about 15 minutes and check every 3-5 min after that.

How do I start the oven? I want to cook a pizza

Open the oven and make sure it is empty nod one rack is near the middle level. Turn the knob that says OFF to BAKE. Then turn the knob with all the numbers to the temperature that Theo Sri toons on the box tell you to use. Allow the oven to heat up for 10 minutes. It may beep when it is up to temp or a red light will turn off to let you know it is ready. Put the pizza in the oven on middle rack. Take it out according to box instructions ( usually 8 to 15 minutes). That pizza out by sliding it onto a plate. Turn off the oven and eat the pizza. If it is not done completely, leave it in longer next time. Enjoy

When baking a cake or bars the oven is set to the recommended temperature and baked for the recommended time and the middle doesn't bake all thru.............gooey.

Put a thermomiter in the oven and set oven to 350. Once oven says it has reached temp. Give it about 15 min and check the thermomiter you placed in the oven to see if it maches.

This is where I would start.

KitchenAid Oven Temp.- Bottomside of Pizza or Cake stays uncooked

I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.

As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.

The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.

I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.

If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.

Display Malfunction

Hello murfraven,

You said, you went to set the timer while baking a pizza and I got a "set or en" on the display of my Maytag Gemini Ceramic Top electric oven.
How old is the range?
And the model number?

Threat it like an error code.
This can reset the system.
Turn the breaker off to cut the power for 5 minutes.
Then restart the breaker and try the range.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not remedy the problem, then the switch itself is bad.
Let me know how it works out.
Huuum, Please remember to leave a rating
