Question about Maytag Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Maytag oven that I just replaced the oven temperature sensor on. After plugging it back into the 220 outlet, the broiler comes on and stays on and can't be shut off so I have to unplug t

Previous error code indicated that the oven temperature sensor needed replacing. So, I did that. When I hooked the oven back up to it's power source the broiler part of the oven cam on and stayed on. I pushed the cancel button and played around with the clock...nothing. So, I had to disconnect the oven from it's power source just to turn off the broiler.

    Hi Charlie. The model number is: MER4530AAW. I'm wondering if it could be the electronic central board that needs replacing? Thanks for your help.

  • Charlie Lapinski Jan 17, 2013

    what you need is a new Panel, Control part number 74003596

  • Dean Louder Jan 18, 2013

    Thanks for the feedback Charlie. I took the advice of another responder who suggested to pull the heat sensor back out and connect / reconnect it several times to ensure a good connection. I also took steel wool and lightly rubbed the sensorto clean it up. Now it's working fine. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way. If not, your suggestion is next. Again, thanks for your time.

SOURCE: JTP15 Oven - Shuts down after preheating

It sounds like the module is momentarily losing power when the bake relay clicks off. Does it do the same thing when you use broil?
Post back with the complete model number and I will try to find the wiring diagram for it and we will walk through checking it.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: F2 error code

Similar problem. When baking over 400 degrees we get the F2 code that can only be reset by cycling the power at the breaker. Replaced the electonics to no avail. I'm thinking its the cooling fan located between the oven and microwave (upper unit) it never comes on which may cause a separate temp switch to generate the F2... but I'm not a pro. :)

SOURCE: Error code f2 after replacing sensor.

If the sensor utilizes a plug, it is not uncommon for the plug connection to become intermittent. Cut the plug off the sensor and the wire harness. Directly 'hard wire' the sensor wires to the harness wires using CERAMIC wire nuts.. (no polarity here, sensor is a resistive element) regular plastic wire nuts will melt. If problem persists thereafter, the electronic control may have to be replaced.

SOURCE: Broiler won't turn off. Error code F-3

The broiler won't turn off even when you press the "Off/cancel" button? It sounds like the broiler control relay is stuck shut. The F3 code means the oven temperature sensor has failed, this probably happened because the oven got too hot when the broiler was stuck on. There is fail-safe thermal fuse that will blow if the oven gets too hot, so the oven won't melt down but you should leave the unit off so you don't blow the fuse.

To fix the relay, you will have to replace the oven control module. I think this is about $200 and not too hard to replace if you are somewhat handy. The temperature sensor is also serviceable, you can find parts at Appliance Parts Pros on the web. Hopefully you haven't thrown the range out yet, let me know if you need further assistance.

Oven element good but does not heat even though broil workes with temp sensor


Hello Billy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

First, your broiler is not connected to your oven thermocouple (Temperature sensor). When you turn on your broiler full load amps go into the broiler element with no adjustment.


There are only three components that control your oven operation:

1.) Heater Element - Inspect your heating element for cracks, sparking or corrosion on the two contacts on the back wall.

2.) Thermocouple - This is a temperature sensor inside your oven. It is about the diameter of a coat hanger wire. Either it comes straight out of the back upper wall or is mounted on the back wall.
It is disconnected and removed from the upper back of the oven.
You should get a meter reading of 1000-1100 Ohms if the component is good.

3.) Oven Control - The control communicates with the thermocouple and increases or decreases the amps to the oven heating element. If the thermocouple is good then the oven control needs to be replaced.

If in unsure, replace them both.

Recently, I replace a digital oven control for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00 for the control. I purchased a remanufactured oven control over the internet for $30.00.

Get the oven model number off your oven. It is on a metal tag on the face of the oven after you open the door.

Go into the following website. Put in your oven model number (on the left). You will get diagrams and parts part numbers. Record these numbers for the above components. Put the part number in your computer search engine and search best price.

CAUTION: If you replace a electrical control board GROUND YOURSELF by touching something that is bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a control board.

Kenmore digital oven model 79095321303 temperature is wrong. Digital display on oven says 350 degrees but oven thermometer placed in center of oven (middle rack) shows 200 degrees. When I up the...


It could be one of two things either the control board or the temperature probe and I suspect the probe and that is a do it yourself job.

The oven temperature sensor on your Kenmore range is a one-piece unit that mounts to the rear oven wall with a mounting plate. The sensor is not difficult to change. You will need to dismantle the rear panel from the oven to access the mounting plate. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement sensors. It is a good idea to take the old sensor with you along with the model number of your oven. This way you will be sure to get the correct replacement sensor for your oven.

  • Unplug the Kenmore oven power cord from the wall outlet. Move the oven range away from the wall so that you can access the back of the unit. (Ask a friend to assist you to move the oven. if necessary.) The oven may use an anti-tip bracket on one of the rear legs. Push the oven toward the back wall to release the leg from the bracket in the floor. Tilt the back of the oven toward you, and pull the oven forward.


  • Remove the screws that secure the back panel to the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the back panel away from the unit and set the panel out of the work area.

  • 3

    Locate the mounting plate for the oven temperature sensor on the upper right side of the back of the oven. There will be a single wire coming from the back of the mounting plate and the wire mounts to a clip.

  • 4

    Follow the wire to the connector on the other end. Pull the connector on the wire to disconnect the wire from the wiring harness.

  • 5

    Remove the two screws that secure the mounting plate to the rear of the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the temperature sensor straight out of the oven. Unclip the sensor wire from the mounting clip.

  • 6

    Take the oven temperature sensor to an appliance repair facility to purchase a replacement. Insert the sensor end of the temperature sensor through the hole in the back of the oven. Slide the sensor all the way until the sensor mounting plate is flush against the oven. Secure the sensor with the two mounting screws.

  • 7

    Connect the sensor wire to the connector by pushing the connector until it locks in place. Snap the wire inside the retaining clip.

  • 8

    Place the back panel back over the rear of the oven and secure the panel with the retaining screws. Slide the Kenmore oven back into its working position and plug the power cord into the wall outlet.

    ello & Welcome to FixYa

    This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    When using oven F3 or F5 comes up on the digital display and it beeps. Sometimes it says err on it. Very frustrataing, use my oven a lot.


    Replace the temperature sensor first. It may solve both problems. If not,the clock will have to be replaced too.

    F3 or F4 Open or shorted oven temperature sensor Replace oven temperature sensor F5 Hardware and watchdog circuits disagree Replace clock assembly (also called the ERC)

    My oven has increased only 65 degrees in almost an hour....what does it mean when it heats up, but SLOWLEY??


    The broiler element on the top of the oven comes on during the preheat cycle to speed things up and then only the lower element keeps the temperature steady. One of those elements is bad, probably the broiler. Try using the broiler and see if it works. If not, you need to disconnect the elements from the oven and check them with an ohm meter. If gthe elements check out ok, then it must be the temperature sensor/thermostat.
