Question about Maytag MGR6875ADS

1 Answer

The ovens won't light, but the broiler does.

For a while now the oven would go into Sabbath mode and shut down for a day or two (sometimes more) and now neither of the ovens will turn on, but the control panel acts like it is working.

SOURCE: bake and broil do not work

assuming that the worst case senario has taken place
first thing i would check is ensure i have proper voltage at the outlet, 120 from each side to ground
220 across L1-L2
the elements are the only thing on the range that uses 220v
if you know how to use a mutimeter
you can test both the elements
disconnect the range at teh breaker
take out the screws at the back wall that hold the elements in
pull out about an inch becareful they dont leave much slack on the wires
disconnect on element terminal and apply your leads your looking for continuity, your meter should beep
if not replace the element
if yes, let the element hang ensureing niether terminal touches anything, reconnect the other terminal
now turn the stove on bake if your doing the lower
turn you meter to ac voltage
you should read 220v
anything less than that, your problem is before that

What does 5AB mean on clock?


Your display is actually reading "SAB". This is an indication of a mode of operation rather than an error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608491-sabb_or_sab_explanation_kitchen_ranges

Sabbath Mode is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.

Somewhere in the owner/operator's manual is a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode". Since all ranges differ in features and operator, you need to refer to the operation section of your owner's manual to find out how to shut the feature off.

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, you need to press and hold the CLOCK button for 3 seconds to clear the Sabbath Mode. "Sab" will flash for about 5 seconds, then return to normal display.

We have a dcs 48 inch range/oven and the main oven does not heat. The broiler does and the small side oven heats. Any advice?


You don't say if it lights up! If it lights up and stays on low it's the thermostat that's at fault, they are not adjustable and will need to be replaced.

Main oven does not heat at all


Sounds like the heating/starter element went out. This item is very delicate and will break if touched. They are used on almost all newer gas appliances. It takes about 3 minutes to check. Turn the oven on and look down near the burners with all of the lights in the room out. You should see a glow for a while, then it will click off for a while and then come back on. If not, then turn off the oven and get a flashlight and look for the starter element to see if it is broken. It is about one inch wide, two inches long, and 1/4 inch thick. If you do get a glow then this is good news, the element is not broken. However, the element operates a thermostatic switch which operates the gas valve. This switch may be broken. The switch and the starter element usually come out together when removed.

Keys on the oven are not working so I can not start oven bake


Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

*In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

Happy Holidays!

How to relight the pilot light?


There is an easy way to relight a pilot light in an oven/broiler if you do not have long fireplace matches and you are scared to stick your arm in with a regular lighter: Light a long stick of incense, but do not blow out the flame. Open the broiler door. Turn the oven to "broil" and extend the lit incense stick in \to the back of the broiler space. Wave the incense stick slowly back and forth below the broiler coil towards the rear of the oven until you hear the pilot light ignite, then pull the incense stick out, blow out the flame and insert into an incense holder.
