Question about Maytag MER5770 Electric Kitchen Range

Maytag MER5770AAW smoothtop range

I just bought this range off somebody, they didn't have an owner's manual and an F1 message comes up on the display from time to time. I usually press the cancel key and it will stop. Sometimes I have to press it more than once, but it stops. Sometimes, it even starts going off in the middle of the night. I don't cook anything overnight, so this is when it's not in use. I also have no idea what some of the controls do, and can't seem to obtain an owner's manual online. There is little information I have been able to find on this range, I would assume because of the age of the range. Any help with the F1 thing would be appriciated, and any other information on this range would be great.

Seems Maytags have never fixed this problem. I have a 1993 and have had to replace the membrane (touchpad) every 4 yrs. If you can do it yourself, actually easy, you will save $$ for repairman, and can order part from Repair
Only trick is carefully opening up the stove top, having someone hold it up for you while you disconnect the membrane...

Hey, whom ever posted that, THANK YOU! I looked everywhere for the owners manual! I am SO grateful! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Http:// is the owner's manual. The F1 thing seems to be a common problem with this model involving the electronics - one or both circuit boards in the control pannel. Most common solution: repair call and $$, although the Maytag repair people suggest resetting the oven by unplugging for about and hour and re-plugging the oven.

Oven will not shut off


Sounds like a stuck relay in the control board. The only way to repair this problem is going to be by replacing the control board. If you have anymore questions please ask. I'll be more than happy to help you further.

No heat Maytag smoothtop range MERH752BAB

It would have to be under warranty if this happened after only 1 week. I would contact the manufacturer.
