Hi, the gas oven in my apartment only works at maximum temperature. The oven will start at any temperature and will operate for approximately 5mins. After this time the oven will turn itself off unless set at the maximum temperature (i.e. atmaximum temperature the oven will remain on) What is wrong and how do I fix this issue?I think my oven is a Haier Gas Range, but I am not certain.

Re: Oven only works at max temp
The oven temp switch should be replaced.
This switch has a long tube which goes from the switch to the inside of the oven. The switch can be replace without much of a problem but, feeding the new tube down to the oven can be tricky sometimes. The old tube will come out but you have to find the same hole to put the new tube back through, sometimes this will go through insulation and you can't see the hole where the old tube came out. It's not hard to do just be aware of this problem.

Hi This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the sensor is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control board however, as the issue is only with upper oven it is most likely that the temperature sensor is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance. Daniel
If both baking and broiling element do not heath above
a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the
temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.
If the part that is not heating is only one element, then you may need to replace
Before replacement the element can be tested
removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals,
with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the
element. In this case, selecting only baking or only broiling (depending on what element is faulty), the oven will work normally.
If the oven is a gas oven, then you have no element. In that case if the oven burners are working, replace the temperature sensor.
If replacing the temperature sensor does not help, then replace the oven electronic control.
HI. an F-2 during a baking cycle is the result of an out of control oven temp that has reached Temperatures above 615F-630F
If this actual over temperature condition occurred, Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
If no over temperature condition occurred, Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.
HI. this is a oven temp sensor failure notice. you will need to check the wires leading from the temp sensor to the control. if the wires are in good condition and , the sensor harness is not welded, replace the temp sensor asap.
The temperature sensor is bad. The broil element will work even if the temp sensor is bad but the bake element will not. If you measure the resistance across the contacts on the sensor, it should be around 20 ohms, if it is much higher (1000+), then it is bad and should be replaced. It is just as easy to replace as the elements and looks like a small pencil sized rod in the inside top of the oven. Let me know how this works out for you.
HI thanks for your question. A common problem with gas ovens is that the oven will not get hot enough. and the part that's at fault is the ig niter. replace the ig niter. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.
