Maytag electric range oven not working

The heating element (Im guessing-The odd shaped rod on the bottom of the oven that normally gets red) made popping noises and burst into flames on the left side of the oven. Since then the oven will get warm but it took 30 minutes for it to get to 200 degrees and the element is not turning red. Was wondering if this part can be replaced and for approx. how much money or do I have bigger problems? The numbers on the left side door are: 8114P471-60 and on the right side door are:
8114P395-60. Not sure if the product below is even correct.

    Mine is the top coil and it caught fire like a white sparkler and now half the coil is in the shape of a moon rock at the bottom of the oven. I am also looking to fix this myself but am having an issue finding parts-

    the numbe ryou have is for the door.

    can you see if you have another tag on the over side?

    there should have a tag on the rear of the oven, if you cna get to it.

heating elements are usually good or failed with nothing between so unlikely to be the element. problem probably lies with the thermostat. to check, bypass the thermostat and check the oven gets really hot.

SOURCE: Oben takes half an hour to heat up

I doubt its the igniter. It could be a faulty gas valve or maybe the orifice is blocked, and not letting enough gas into the burner

SOURCE: My Maytag Electric Range oven part will not heat over 200* ......

Unplug the range.
Open the oven door.
Remove the racks.
Remove the 2 screws holding the bake element to the rear wall of the range.
Carefully pull the element from the access holes in the rear wall.
Remove the wires from the element.
With your meter set for continuity, put one lead on each element end.
If you get a reading it is good.

If it is good. Replace the wires and reinstall the element.

Pull the range out from the wall.
Remove the rear panels.
Plug the range back in.
Set your meter for 220volts or more.
Careful now because you are working with live voltage.
Set the oven for bake.
Put a lead on each element terminal to check voltage.
If you have 220 volts at the element, unplug the range and unplug the temperature sensor.
Set your meter for ohms.
Check the 2 leads on the temp sensor.
If at room temp the sensor is 1050 - 1100 it is OK. If not replace it.
If the temp sensor checks out OK, replace the ERC

Sorry to say but the erc or eoc has gone bad. The oven control is part # 74009212 at about 200.00. Sorry for the news but it is the problem. Hope this has helped.

SOURCE: Maytag Gemini double oven flashes F1 and stops heating.

I am attaching a Gemini manual. The checking procedures are the same for your oven.
Two component suspects for your problem would be the door latch mechanisms and the oven temperature sensors.

Will just replacing the oven element fix my Kenmore model 911.955879range oven? It sparked, broke in two and a white flame continued going around the element, wouldn't stop I had to shut breaker off.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Good for you - turning off the breaker.

You have a older oven. Usually there is a spark or crack in the oven element. In your case the element was so embrittled it broke into 2 pieces.

Before you use the top range burners to be on the safe side you need to disconnect the oven element. You may have damaged the oven control board to where it is locked into power for the oven.

25713262-01ium3bsyoj5ql4fhv4kpwvp-4-0.jpg 1.) Remove the bottom drawer to reduce weight.
2.) Put a rug on the floor in front of the oven, so when you pull the oven out it does not scratch the floor.
3.) Pull the oven out so you can get behind it.
4.) Unplug the unit.
5.) Remove the back bottom cover.
6.) Disconnect the heating element and remove from oven.
7.) Rap the two loose element connections in the back with electrical tape.
8.) Follow the element loose connection to the control board at the top. Disconnect at the oven control board.
9.) Inspect the loose wiring from the control board to the heating element for burns or melting.
10.) Plug the oven back in and turn on the range burners.

The part number for the oven element is WB44T10014. Sears wants about $95.00 for this part. Search the internet for this part number and get it for about $28.00.

Your oven control board may have become damaged. Recently I replace one for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00. I got a remanufactured board over the internet for $30.00.

Get back to me and let me know what is going on.

Jenn-air elecrtic oven JDS9860AAP is slow to heat up and will not come up to temp.


Either you have an open element a burnt terminal lead or a bad control try setting on broil only the element should glow in bake the bottom element should glow while the top cycles on/off based on your description of a humming noise I would suspect the relay on the control board

Should the lower oven heating element heat all the way around? The heating element in my oven only heats and glows red on the front and two sides, The rear part of the element never glows red.


This is probably normal. the element has a fine wire inside the tube that you see and depending on where it starts in the tube it will start glowing from there.

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?


Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

If it's an electric oven, then it may be a baking element gone bad. When mine went bad the rest of the oven worked but not the bottom oven baking section. Mine made popping noises and sparks when it went out. Look for a break or burnt spot in the heating coil in the bottom of your oven. I replaced mine for about $50

Last week when my wife turned on the oven a flash and popping noise happened and the circuit breaker popped. I ordered a new control board part number WB27T10229 and installed it. When I turn the circuit...


The broiler is a different element. Sounds like your main (bottom) element is out. Turn off breaker and remove. To test, use an ohm meter and ohm out the element. If yuor meter reads 0 or OL (open load) your element needs to be replaced.

My Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 just made a VERY loud pop noise and shot out a blue flame. Knocked the breaker off. reset breaker and stove appears to work ok. Should I continue to use stove?


you most likely had a bake or broil burner short out. the unit may seem to heat but it probably doesnt bake right. look at the elements and see if they have a rough or blistered apperance to them. if so it probably isnt working. you can also check to see if both elements are glowing red when they are on.
try the broil cycle and if its ok then try the bake cycle, my guess is one of them is blown out.

Flame from electrice heating unit with range turned off


Your bake element blew out. Easy to replace... turn off the power (unplug) and replace the element by removing two screws holding it into the oven. Then you have two wires to the element and they either push on or have screw on terminals

Gas oven not heating


waka,

I'm guessing that there is an issue of some kind with flow of heat inside the oven. Gas ovens use the hot air/gas exhaust to heat up the oven. Flames mean heat. The flames should be about half an inch long or so. If not, there may be an issue, but I don't think that is it.

Have you lined the oven with foil? It is possible that vents from the boiler section are closed up? That will prevent heat from reaching the oven.
