Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Lower bake element in lower oven does not heat. What are common problems & can I get a fault code to display if I do not have one on the display, or does it mean none are present if not displayed? This is a Maytag Gemini, about 6 years old.

    I remove the back & had 240v accross the cord & could also get the same voltage through the element. Since power from the cord went directly through the element, & the center neutral wire of the cord went to the control panel, it was obvious that the control panel would supply ground. I had no ground from the output relay of the control panel. I replaced the control panel.

Remove the lower bake element and test the ohms. If none replace the oven element and its fixed. The element is usually the problem and its fairly cheap to fix.

Hi. I have a Maytag CWE4200ACB wall mount oven that seems to have a circuit board/timer problem. When the oven is turned on and temp set you can hear (at the control panel) one click and the "on"...


Hi.

The clicking noise comes from the control board relays. The board has three relays. One for for bake. One for broil. One for light/fan auxiliary functions.

Try switching on only bake or broil. If one of the two elements (either bake or broil) gets hot, then the problem is either element or timer board. Make sure that the element has continuity at the Ohm meter.

If both bake and broil do not work test first the oven temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity. Make sure that impedance of the sensor at room is about 1.1KOhms . If sensor is open or shorted, replace the sensor. If sensor reading is OK test wiring and elements for continuity and eventually replace the control board if the rest is OK. Even if door switch should not affect regular programs, check the door switch reading impedance or jumping it.To test wiring test continuity of red and black lines. Check black line between power cord and relay board. Test with particular attention the oven temperature sensor, that is a common cause for your symptoms. Here the part:Long Oven Sensor Kit

Here a wiring diagram for your oven.

Here all parts and diagrams.

Regards.

Ginko.

Bake does not heat up. Broil works though


I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you oven has two heating elements. A lower one for general baking and an upper one for broiling (this means that you don't have a broiler "drawer").

If this is the case, then the problem exists with the pilot/ignition system for the lower heat element.

The systems vary by manufacturer, but the type that I'm familiar with involves and electrical heat element that ignites the gas once it starts glowing. It's possible that a wire has been damaged/disconnected or that the heat element has malfunctioned.

If your oven has a pilot, then it's possible that the pilot went out on the lower element and not the upper. Last option would be an electric "spark" style ignition which may have suffered from the same problems as the electric heat element mentioned above.

Heat in lower oven will not exceed 185 degrees


Several possibilities:

1. Bake/broil elements are bad - can you see them glow red?

2. Temperature sensor is out of wack - does the temperature displayed agree with the actual oven temperature? The sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance.

3. If the elements and sensors check out and the oven "thinks" it is hot when it's not, then it is probably your control board. In this case we may be able to help you, we repair these at www.fixyourboard.com.

After temp is set bottom oven will not heat up to desired temp


you probably have a burnt out or shorted out lower bake element in you r lower oven. it sometimes will actually break apart or look like it sparked thru the black tubular section. it is common and will cause no heat during the bake cycle.
you could try to do a broil and see if it gets hot and that would let you know the control is ok and just needs the lower bake element.

Bottom baking element remains on


From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.

Bottom Baking element not working


dmiller58
If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?

Oven will not heat to requested temperature


Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back
