The good news is it does heat up. So that means the controls are ok and the safety valve is ok. So what could be causing the problem? A weak ignitor! The ignitor must draw 3 amps or better to properly open the safety valve. One way for the layman to tell for sure is to look at the ignitor. It should be very bright. If it is dim it is bad. Replace it.

My new oven doesnot cook lasagna through evenly.


Hi Angela,

There are many different possibilities that can cause this issue. From a faulty thermostat, to placement of the food in the oven, or not giving the oven enough time to pre-heat before placing your food item in the oven to be cooked. I have found that on many ovens they can reach well over 450 degrees during the pre-heating cycle. I had a customer who called because her new oven was burning her brownies on the outside and they were not done on the inside. The customer told me that she would wait for the pre-heat signal beep(oven is ready) before putting the tray of brownies in the oven. When I initially checked the oven tempature using a fluke meter and a thermocouple at the center of the oven I found that the oven was close to 460 degrees when the beep went on to indicate the oven is ready! So that is why she was burning her brownies. It took another 10 minutes after that for the oven to stabalize and keep the tempature at 350. So you might want to give your oven 20 or 30 minutes of pre-heating time before you put your tray of Lasagna in the oven. Always make sure to place the food item at the center most part of the oven. And if you are cooking several trays make sure to stagger their position on each rack so they are not right above/below each other. The positioning is important because it can interrupt the natural flow of heat in the oven. So if you let it pre-heat for a half hour and are still having the burning issue then you should have the oven tested for proper calibration to make sure the thermostat is working properly.

MAYTAG OVEN TAKE OVER 45 MINUTES TO PRE-HEAT AND OCCASIONALY THERE IS A SMALL DETONATION WHEN IT LIGHTS


Depending on the age of your oven, it may require a new thermocouple. This is best installed by a professional and is fairly inexpensive. Thank you, Dana

Oven takes FOREVER to pre-heat


You probably have a bad heating element. Trip the breaker and make sure that all power is removed from the stove/oven. Remove the element, and test it for continuity. If it tests open, obtain a replacement from an appliance parts supply house. If it tests good, you should suspect either a bad switch or thermostat.

My oven is taking a really long time to warm up. it has been over half an hour and it is only at 180 degree


You may need to replace an heating element, it has 2 the top one (broil element) the bottom one (bake ele)
First try shuting off the breaker to the range for 45 min, this will reset to factory settings
