    I have a somewhat similar problem, but what this oven (purchased 2006) does is keep going up in temperature, way past the setting.
    It even scorches partchment paper.

    I have read that in case of microwaves, sometimes unpluging it for 15 seconds allows it to do what it is supposed to do again.

    I have not tried that, but I will. -Ca Cook

    Our oven is propane, but of course the controls are electric. I agree that the problem is probably the thermostat. I guess I need to take the back off and see if I can find the thermostat. It would be nice to find an owner's manual but Google does not even find this model of Maytag, again, built in 2006.

The solution I am proposing here only applys to electric ovens and not micro wave ovens.
The usual reason for fluctuating oven temperatures is a faulty or out of calibration thermostat.
Some thermostats can be recalibrated, but in my experience, it is better to replace it.
Another reason for fluctuating temperatures is a badly fitting oven door, or a worn or faulty door seal, the door should be a good firm fit agaist the seal.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

First start up


You're actually referring to the "broiler" elements. Most electric ovens have these at the top of the main oven space. (Some gas ovens are set up the same way, but many put the broiler elements in a bottom drawer.)

As their name implies, broiler elements are active only when you're broiling. They will not go on for baking.

Broiling is the process of cooking food by exposing it directly to a high heat source at close range. To broil a steak, for example, you would place the pan holding the steak on an oven rack raised to the top or next to top position in the oven (consult the manual) and set the oven to broil. The top elements will then turn on and cook the meat by direct radiation.

Most people, however, use ovens for baking far more often than for broiling. Baking is the process of cooking food (cakes, casseroles, roasts etc) by indirect heat. In other words you raise the oven to a certain temperature, put the food on a rack more in the middle of the oven, and let the surrounding heat cook it over time. When you bake the top broiler elements usually don't come on at all.

I hope this helps.

I want to use top and bottom ovens but at different temps - how do I do this


To Set a Cook T ime:
1. On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER
OVEN for the one you want to set.
2. Press BAKE or CONVECT UPPER (on some models).
Press the number pads to enter a temperature other than the
one displayed.
3. Press COOK TIME.
4. Press the HR and MIN "up" or "down" arrow pads to enter
the length of time to cook.
5. Press START/ENTER.
The start time and stop time countdown will appear on the
oven display.
On double oven models only, when both upper and lower
ovens are being used at the same time, touch UPPER OVEN
or LOWER OVEN to display the respective cook time.
When the stop time is reached, the oven will shut off
automatically and "End" will appear on the oven display.
If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound, then reminder
tones will sound every minute.
Repeat the process by choosing the other option of UPPER or LOWER OVEN

Have just moved from UK and we don't have broil and bake on our ovens - what do they mean/what's the difference as I've been cooking garlic bread on bake but it's taking twice as long to cook?


Hi,
The broil is the top element and the bake is the bottom element...so with broil you are heating from the top and with bake you are heating from the bottom...if your oven has a fan, turn that on with a bake setting and it will speed up the process..

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay on...how do I get the oven to stay on


What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.

Time bake


No, time bake is what time you want the unit to start cooking and what time you would like it to stop cooking. Or turning the oven on and turning itr off. the timer on the unit will just count down.
