Question about Amana AER5515QA Electric Kitchen Range

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees

My electric Amana range (AER5515QA) will clean and broil, but will not bake. When we set the bake to 400 degrees it will heat to 220 and stop there. Any ideas? The range is 2 years old. Thanks, Jon Z

Re: 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.

You should have 120 to the element when not in bake mode, while in bake mode you should have 220 - 240 volt. Sounds like you lost a relay to send the additional power to the element, or you have a High Limit thermostat which could be open. This is a safety device to protect the unit from over heating, this only goes if temperatures increase higher the safety levels, normally set about 200 degrees or so along the air flow channels. I would trace from the elements to the clock and find the missing source of current.
I hope this helps
Be safe with electricity......

When set to bake oven does not preheat and tempature does not increase. when set to broil oven heats

Since your oven has a separate element for bake and broil I would bet the bake element is burnt out or burnt electrical connection to the element. Make sure you disconnect all power to the range before checking.

Hi Tom. Salesmen love the phrase 'self-clean'. As a Tech I came to know this function as 'self-destruct'. The entire oven locks down so that owners cannot release air inside the oven that reaches 700-800 degrees during this 3hr. cycle. The control board routes max current through its circuits for most of this time, and over repeated cycles, causes eventual failure in almost all boards. Symptoms and errors vary- consistent with multiple failures of either resistors at power junctions, or internal processor errors that accompany heat related damage. FIRST- disconnect power and check resistance for elements- broil/bake/conv. If all have resistance and are not OPEN, control is probably bad. Control part # AP4422522 Whirlpool available for $157.52 or so thru local or on line parts. Installation is not difficult......power Off..... Advice- drip pans, aluminum foil, if boil over is possible---protect from contact with bottom of oven. Avoid using 'self-clean' by preventing or minimizing spills. Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

Oven not baking

1. Check that the bake/broil elements are ok. Do they glow red when cycled on?

2. Control board may have failed. We see this as a common failure. We repair control boards at

Amana Range, AER5515QAW

could be a bad bake element, bad temperature sensor, or control board problem

what does the oven readout display for temperature? if the readout agrees with the actual oven temperature ... it is probably the element

if the oven readout displays a much higher temperature it may be the temperature sensor (the probe in the oven cavity) or the control board

the temperature sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance with power off and unplugged from the control board, should be about 1100 ohms at 75F

If the sensor is good, then it is probably the control board ... in which case we can repair it for you at

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.

Check that both elements are working, and that there is 240 VAC being supplied to the oven (one of the two breakers has not tripped, or one of the two fuses has not blown.).

Oven slow to heat

In alot of ovens preheat will cause the both the broil and bake element to come on. You are most likely getting heat from the broil element. This means either the bake element is bad or the relay on the oven control is bad. If the element shows resistance with an ohm meter then replace the oven control board.
