Could be the oven thermostat, that's the long skinny tube with the thin copper pipe coming off it follow it back to the oven knob. Test it by putting a putting an oven thermometer in and compare the difference they only cost a few dollars at good home ware shops.
when you say now it lights. is just the ignitor lighting?or can you hear the gas flowing??? can you feel it heating at all?? should start at 100 degrees and climb up from there. no reason for it not to heat past 200 (unless set to Celsius which default setting of 350 =190degress) therefore will not heat past 200. and wont let you try to heat to 425 , that would be off the charts of Celsius conversion. sensor problem would eitherno t let stove come on or wouldnt stop from heating eitherway a code would come up in the display
Do you mean 200 degrees Celcius or Farenheit? If Farenheit then the most likely culprit would be the thermocouple in the oven which can usually be replaced relatively easily by someone mechanically minded, if Celsius then you should suspect the elements although a working broiler would suggest that there is at least one element that works fine.
"Why won't the oven heat up?
First, make sure you've properly set all the oven controls. Check your user's guide for more information on your model's controls.(see below for the link to the manual if you need it)
If your range offers the option of a delayed oven start, check to see if it's been selected. If so, the oven won't begin to heat until the selected time.
If your oven has a lockout feature, check to see if it's been selected. If so, it will prevent you from using the oven.
If your oven still won't operate, please contact an authorized Maytag service provider for more assistance."
Here is the link to the manual;
and here is the link to Maytag Service if you need it - hopefully not;
The other possible culprit would be the electrical supply to the oven - it may be adequate for the stovetop or grill but the oven may draw more power than the circuit can handle - even if it was fine before, this can change and may be caused by corrosion, rodents, overloading etc. and may not necessarily trip the breaker switch - if you suspect this at all then get a qualified electrician to check - it shouldn't take long to check so should be cheap, although repairs if necessary may cost more
Hope this helps :)
I had this same problem...I needed to replace the digital pad, cost about $200 online and took about an hour to replace. The heat from the oven wears out the electrical components in the pad...good luck!
Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
