Oven not working properly

I have a Maytag Kitchen Range Model#MER5555Q. Everything works fine on the range except the oven started to not heat up. It started out heating up to about 200 degrees and over the period of about a week it stopped heating altogether. The brolier works fine, the stovetop works fine, the clock and lcd indicator works. Thanks for any help.

Re: Oven not working properly

Do you mean 200 degrees Celcius or Farenheit? If Farenheit then the most likely culprit would be the thermocouple in the oven which can usually be replaced relatively easily by someone mechanically minded, if Celsius then you should suspect the elements although a working broiler would suggest that there is at least one element that works fine. Maytag says; "Why won't the oven heat up? First, make sure you've properly set all the oven controls. Check your user's guide for more information on your model's controls.(see below for the link to the manual if you need it) If your range offers the option of a delayed oven start, check to see if it's been selected. If so, the oven won't begin to heat until the selected time. If your oven has a lockout feature, check to see if it's been selected. If so, it will prevent you from using the oven. If your oven still won't operate, please contact an authorized Maytag service provider for more assistance." Here is the link to the manual; and here is the link to Maytag Service if you need it - hopefully not; The other possible culprit would be the electrical supply to the oven - it may be adequate for the stovetop or grill but the oven may draw more power than the circuit can handle - even if it was fine before, this can change and may be caused by corrosion, rodents, overloading etc. and may not necessarily trip the breaker switch - if you suspect this at all then get a qualified electrician to check - it shouldn't take long to check so should be cheap, although repairs if necessary may cost more Hope this helps :)

Have a maytag range model number mer5555qcw oven temperature will not go higher than 245


This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

We had the same thing happen and had the Atco Gas company come out to look at it.  Our regulator was not working properly which caused CO to be relased.  We were told that the problem could be fixed for about $250-300 (CAN.) including parts and labour.

heating elements are usually good or failed with nothing between so unlikely to be the element. problem probably lies with the thermostat. to check, bypass the thermostat and check the oven gets really hot.

Oven won't heat

25 mins for oven to reach temp is not unusual. if it reaches temp ok across the range, don't think you have a problem
