The fan oven gets hot but food cooks more on one side than the other. Food needs to be turned for even cooking. Food also takes much longer to cook than stated on packaging.


packaging cooking times is only a guide... not exact

thats why professional cooks prefer gas

Oven takes forever to preheat


The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

I have a tappan gas stove. the stove top works but the oven doesn't heat up enough to cook and i can smell gas. I checked the gas line and it is tight with no leaks. i am wondering what could it be and...


You could do the repair yourself. Much more information is needed. Is your oven spark ignition or hot surface ignition ? A valve may be opening only partially. This can happen on a hot surface ignition system when the glow bar is starting to malfunction. Need to know more details to be of real help.

Timer instructions for a Rangemaster Toledo dual fuel 90 required


OK, here we go, this is actually a fairly lengthy explanation, but I will do what I can to explain.
The timer can be used to turn just one, or both ovens on and off automatically, however the start and stop time must be the same for both ovens, though different cooking temperatures can of course be set, so if you play around with temperatures to extend the cooking time of an item in one oven, you can often cook items needing very different settings for the fixed time you set in both ovens. Note that when the timer is on and the AUTO message is on the display, the ovens are disabled and will ONLY work during the timed period unless the timer is disabled again. (This is a common problem when you first power up, because the AUTO setting is automatically engaged on installation or power up after a power cut, disabling the ovens until you figure this out!). So, with all that garbage out of the way, how to use the timer settings:

For ease of understanding, I will refer to the buttons on the control pannel (Running from Left to Right as: BELL, HOT DISH, COLD DISH, HAND, + and -)

TO TIME SOMETHING THAT'S ALREADY COOKING (Minute Minder). Press and hold down the BELL symbol (Far left), use the + or - to adjust the amount of time you want to cook for (You can check time remaining at any point, or cancel the beeper when the time is up, by pressing the bell button.

TO STOP AUTOMATICALLY AFTER YOU HAVE MANUALLY STARTED COOKING. Press and hold the COLD DISH button at the same time use + and - to adjust your required stop time. AUTO will show on the display. When cooking is finished, the beeper sounds. TURN THE OVEN TEMPERATURE KNOB TO "0" FIRST, then press the HAND button, once to stop the beeper, and again to cancel auto and return to manual mode.

TO START AND STOP THE OVEN MANUALLY: Before you start, decide when you want the cooking to stop and how long you want the food to cook for (The cooker will work back from your stop time and figure out the START time for its self.). Press and hold down the HOT DISH button and at the same time set the minutes and hours you want the oven to cook for with the + and - buttons (You are NOT SETTING THE TIME HERE, you are setting how many minutes and hours to cook. Next, press and hold the COLD DISH button and use the + and - to set the stop time (YOU ARE SETTING A TIME IN THIS OPERATION). AUTO will show on the display. Set the temperature for the oven (or both ovens) that you want to auto cook with. When cooking stops the beeper sounds. Press the HAND button to cancel the beeper and press the HAND again to cancel AUTO and return to manual mode. (Note that the beeper stops after a while if you leave the oven attended, but the manual states you still have to press the HAND button twice to return to manual, I have not personally tested this).
GETTING BACK TO MANUAL MODE. If AUTO is showing on the display, because you have set automatic and no do not need it, or you have just powered the cooker up, any cooking time already set must be returned to 0:00 before you can return to manual, so hold down the HOT DISH button and ensure the display is set to 0:00, once you gave done this you can press the HAND button to return to manual mode

Maytag cook top too hot!


Remove cooktop and check to see how much insulation is below the top, on top of the oven cavity, You may want to install some more insulation. The specs for this range probably allows this to happen. you should not put anything on the top after cooking in the oven, as glass breakage may occur.

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.

Maytag Gemini electric oven


Well my friend these type ovens have eyes and sensers. It could be that you left something on the sensor when you were cleaning it. That is if it is not self cleaning. Self cleaning gets real hot and could affect your appliance in some way. It shouldn't but it might.
