Question about Amana AER5515QA Electric Kitchen Range

Attempted to set oven to 350

I have an Amana range model AER5515QAQ I cleaned it for 2 hours after which the bake light kept flashing upon reading the manual it said to hit the cancel button which I did but it continued then it said to turn the power off and back on and that fixed the problem. A few days later I attempted to set the over for 350 but the preset never happened. It just started at 350. Normally it starts at 100 then works it way to what I have set it for. Need to what might be causing the problem

    I turned the power off for 10 minutes if that is what is meant by a hard reset and it did not work.
    Yesterday morning I turned it on to see if it would work and it started at 250 and when it got to 350 the buzzer when off and it stayed warm for a little while then it got cold again.

    I unplugged it for a whole day and it is still doing the same thing.

  • blmcph Dec 17, 2008

    I found out that the board is bad and it needs a sensor. So I have solved the problem.

Anothr reason might be that capillary tube (the tube attached to the oven wall that senses the temperature in the oven and activates the control that adjusts the temperature) may be out of adjustment.
If the oven doesn't hold the selected temperature, you need to check the capillary tube and test or recalibrate the temperature control
It can be done folowing this:
But you need to find someone who can operate with multimeter.

Test and replace the temperature control:

  1. Unplug the oven or turn off power at the electrical service panel .
  2. Open the oven control panel by removing fasteners or clips around the perimeter. If any of the terminals appear discolored or burned, replace the temperature control (steps 7 through 9 below).
  3. If the control has more than two terminals, identify which terminals to test, using the diagram located on the rear panel, inside the storage drawer or control panel, or in the owner's manual.
  4. Set a multimeter to RX1 (resistance times 1). Disconnect one wire from the terminals being tested, and clip on the tester probes. Set the oven temperature dial to 300°F.
  5. If the multimeter doesn't indicate continuity, replace the control following steps 7 through 9, below.
  6. Remove the capillary tube from its supports in the oven and push it through the rear wall. Then, from the back of the range, pull the tube out of the oven.
  7. Unscrew the two temperature control screws in the front and remove the control from the back of the range.
  8. Label and disconnect the wires, replace any burned wire connectors.
  9. Connect the new control and screw it in place. Push the capillary tube through the back and into the oven, then clip it to its supports.
Test and replace the oven selector switch:
  1. Unplug the oven or turn off power at the electrical service panel .
  2. Open the control panel (see above) and set a multimeter to RX1 (resistance times 1). Disconnect one wire from each pair of terminals being tested, and check for continuity in each position.
  3. To replace the switch, remove any screws from the front of the control panel and pull the switch out the back. Label and disconnect the wires.
  4. Replace the switch with an exact replacement part
Calibrating oven temperature:
Some ovens have a calibration ring on the back of the temperature-control knob. On others, temperature adjustments are made with a screw inside the control-knob shaft. If the capillary tube touches the oven wall, reposition it on its support clips. If the capillary tube is damaged, replace it and the temperature control switch with exact replacement parts.
  1. Test oven temperature with an oven thermometer in the oven and by setting the temperature control to 350°F. Wait 20 minutes, then check the temperature every 10 minutes for the next 40 minutes and calculate the average.
  2. If the result is off by less than 25°F, the control is normal. If it is off by 25° to 50°, recalibrate the temperature control with the following two steps. If the temperature is off by 50° or more, replace the control.
  3. Remove the oven control knob.
  4. If the knob has a ring with marks indicating decrease and increase, loosen the screws and turn the knob to move the ring in the appropriate direction, then retighten the screws.
  5. If there is no ring, hold the control shaft still with adjustable pliers. Insert a thin screwdriver, and chip away the factory seal. Then turn the inside screw clockwise to raise the temperature or counterclockwise to lower it. A one-eighth turn should adjust the temperature about 25°.
Good Luck

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try again the unplug from the mains or switch off the breakers for an extended period of time. To determine if a hard reset was accomplished, the clock should reset likewise to 12, if not and near to correct timeid displayed, then the reset never took place.

Additionally, you may want gleam additional insight from a solution posted by another member of this community, aborcass, at this problem where he posted:
Oven temperature has been factory calibrated and tested. If
oven consistently over or under cooks food, adjust thermostat.
Oven temperature can be increased or decreased 35°F. To
avoid over adjusting oven, move temperature 5°F each time.
1. Push BAKE pad.
2. Press + pad until an oven temperature greater than 500°F
shows in display.
3. Immediately push and hold, approximately 5 seconds,
BAKE button until “00” appears.
4. Press + or - arrow pad to adjust oven temperature.
• To increase oven temperature (for a hotter oven), Press
pad until a positive number appears in display.
• To decrease oven temperature (for a cooler oven),
Press pad until a negative number appears in display.
5. Press OVEN CANCEL pad to save adjustment.
• Setting is saved if power fails or is disconnected.

Heres the code my dear, F5 indicates the control felt a loss of power. I generally check the oven sensor for resistance (1040-1090 Ohms @ 770F). If the sensor is within normal limits, the control is bad. this is the proper step my dear to use the oven properly......

1.First, you need to determine how far off in temperature the oven is set. Get a good quality digital oven thermometer, install it in your oven, and set the oven to 350 degrees F. When the oven indicates it is at the proper temperature, check the reading on the thermometer.
2.Once you know how inaccurate your oven is, you can attempt to adjust it. If your oven has a calibration gauge right on its knob, you can attempt to repair it. If it does not, call a qualified appliance repair person.
3.Remove the oven temperature knob by pulling it from its shaft.
4.Take note of the current setting, and move the directional arrow in either direction to adjust the temperature up or down. You may have to remove a few screws to do this. Moving the arrow one notch usually adjusts the temperature by 10 degrees.

Ovens temps are generally controlled by a probe with two wires called the oven probe(1100 ohms at room temperature for a good one) This probe connects to the main erc control board, which as temperature rises, it changes resistance reading, which is read by the board.......These usually show a fault code on the display when one fails........

The oven ignitor is glowing which ignites the flame. Usually this has to read between 3 to 3.5 amps to be good. (can be 2 or 2.5 and glow and the gas valve will not open) If the ignitor is glowing after 40 minutes, it is most likely the ignitor is bad. (the broil has a separate one, the bake has a separate one) If you do not have a amp clamp to test, you will need to replace part and see what happens, if it fixes problem.......good luck (it could be a sticking gas valve or relay but the ignitor is the most common failure, fragile part also, do not drop it)

OVEN CALIBRATION Set the electronic oven control for normal baking at 350°F. Obtain an average oven temperature after a minimum of 5 cycles. Press CANCEL or CLEAR to end bake mode. TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT 1. Set EOC to bake at 550°F. 2. Within 5 seconds of setting 550°F, press and hold the bake pad for approximately 15 seconds until a single beep is heard (longer may cause F11 shorted keypad alarm). 3. Calibration offset should appear in the display. 4. Use the slew keys to adjust the oven temperature up or down 35°F in 5°F increments. 5. Once the desired (-35° to 35°) offset has been applied, press CANCEL or CLEAR. Note: Changing calibration affects both Speed Bake and normal bake modes. The adjustments made will not change the self-cleaning temperature.

Maytag oven overbakes or burns bottom of cookies, biscuits


Try this first, if the temperature is off contact me.
Put an oven thermometer at the center of the oven and set the oven to 350 degrees F.
 
Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees


Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.
