Display flashes F-1 on my maytag single wall oven

I have a maytag single built-in wall oven. The display started bussing and says F-1. I canceled it a few times and it would not stop. I looked this up in my manuel. It said to cancel & if that did not solve it to unplug and call a tech. Can you help?
Thanks
Kathy

SOURCE: Oven won't unlock

You sound like you have a temp sensor error. Without knowing your exact model I'd say that you can open the door with a coat hangar , the latch is at the top in the center it is locked to the right (facing the front of the door), and it is spring loaded

Remove the temp sensor and take a ohm reading.
Appliance Tip of the Day: Oven Temperature Sensors Demystified grasshopper%202.gif Everyone knows what thermostats do: turn something on and off based on temperature. If your range has an electronic range control (ERC) board with the digital LED display, it doesn't have a thermostat. You know what I'm talking about, most ERCs look something like this.
tn_tempsensors.jpgRanges with ERCs use a sensor to "feel" the temperature in the oven cavity and sends that information to the ERC. The ERC then makes decisions about about heating the oven and controls the burner (in gas ovens) or heating elements (in electric ovens). Typical styles of range temperature sensors are shown
Inevitably, your range will one day start acting goofy and you'll need to check the oven sensor to see if it's causing a problem. On most ranges, a big clue that the sensor is the problem is if you're getting an F1 error code in your ERC display. So how do you check the sensor? Keep reading.
Oven sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity by increasing their internal resistance, measured in ohms as the oven's temperature increases. This change in ohm resistance tells the ERC the oven cavity temperature and it turns the heating elements or burner on and off, as needed. Now, hang with me, grasshopper, 'cuz we're getting to the good part.
At room temperature, 70°F, the resistance of the most common sensors used today is 1000-1100 ohms. What this means is that if you pull those sensor wires to measure the sensor's resistance and it reads slap-a$$ open, why, it don't take a rocket scientist like myself to figger out that you got yourself a bad sensor! Wasn't that easy?
Just for grins, I've included the table below to show you the sensor resistance reading at various temperatures. Viva la resistance!
Oven Sensor Resistances Temperature (°F) Resistance (ohms) 100 1143 200 1350 300 1553 350 1654 400 1753 500 1949

SOURCE: Kenmore oven locked after celf cleaning

I had the same problem today. After I cleaned my self cleaning oven the cycle went back to normal but the oven door would not open even though the screen was clear and didn't read locked. I held the stop button for 3 second, I don't remember what the message said on the screen but I held the stop button in again for 3 seconds and the screen said locked then I did it again and the screen said door and the oven opened. I don't know, maybe it was just sheer luck it's worth a try. I'm happy.

SOURCE: Whirpool GBD307 - Display not working

We had the same error codes F2 E6. We were told to turn off the breaker to the oven for 5 minutes and then turn it back on and it will reset itself. We tried it and it worked! Whirpool wanted to send someone out on a service call. Thank goodness we didn't!

Oven heats & then beeps code F2EO then stops heating


F2 - E0 Shorted keypad (also called touch pad)

1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board).
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).
Here is that part to order.

My Maytag Performa oven and stove top will not turn on (heat up)


When I turn on my Maytag performa using the "bake" function, everything looks ok on the display, however the temp. never rises above 100. I've tried "bake" and "convect", and neither one work. "Clean" doesn't work either. The oven will lock, and display shows that it's heating up, but temp. never rises.
However....."broil" feature works just fine.
Please help.

Maytag single electric built in with a display saying sab bath


It is in Sabbath mode, used for Jewish holidays. Anyway, hold the cancel button for 3-5 seconds and it should revert back to normal operating mode. It will still bake in Sabbath mode but will not display anything due to the laws regarding observation of the Sabbath
