Maytag oven won't stay at temp.

I have a maytag gas oven 13 years old. It will heat to temperature but when the temp. drops, it doesn't kick back on to keep up to temp. Is this a thermostat problem? Sometimes it works fine, sometimes not.

Oven sometimes doesn't stay up to temp


The temp is controlled by electronics that monitor the oven sensor.
The sensor should ohm out at 1100 ohms.
If it is shirted to frame or open the open temp would not do right and the
oven control would not know what the temp was and would probably declare an F-3 error.
In your case I don't think that is the problem. What i think it is going to be is the ignitor. If it is getting weak it sometimes won't draw enough amps to open the safety bimetal inside the gas valve.
Probably the ignitor is on it's way out.

My Maytag Gas Oven will not heat up very much. It's a 50/50 guess if the oven will heat to the correct temp. Sometimes it works fine, the other times it is not very warm at all in the ove, even after...


ello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

No heat in gas dryer, gas good, elec good??


if the heat is on when the dryer is cold then shuts down after 15 to 30 minutes and doesn't lite for a long while you have bad gas coils,the gas should come on until it hits temp. then it shuts down,when the dryer calls for heat it will turn back on,if it stays on for short periods of time you might need to clean out the dryer,this will shut the gas down to soon,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line,make sure the air is blowing outside with nothing blocking it and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

My oven heats up, but then does not maintain the temp.


If it has a pilot then I would say the thermal couple is bad. If it has a glow type ignitor then the ignitor is bad.

Temperature control


sounds like a bad bake ignitor(uneven heat,long cook times, long preheat times, perhaps even gas smell while cooking)

Tappan Oven overheats!!



If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.

If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.
