    Same problem. My oven will not heat up completly. I'm going to try replacing the element. If not I'll move on the the sensor. Both are easy DIY fixes.

    I have a similar issue with Jenn Air W131B oven. I bought one of the better quality oven thermometers (Hg based) that I use to 'calibrate' my oven. It was showing temperatures about 80 deg F higher than it was reported by the oven display.
    (consistently, and I could see the heaters work - they do turn red when the oven is ON - both the top and the bottom ones work).


    I purchased brand new thermal sensor and replaced it in the oven. The temperature is now consistently (I really tried only 350 and 400 F) about 100 degrees lower* than displayed.


    Can I calibrate control chip on this oven or should I replace the whole control board (kinda expensive and I do not believe that it will solve the problem).
    *assuming correct reading of the Hg thermometer.


    thanks!

Hi!

Try the following---

1.) When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

2.) When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Thanks
Rylee

Maytag Oven model MER5755QAQ has lock on the display and the oven will not operate.


If one of the position switches on the latch assembly is not reading, the control will sometimes lock because it "thinks" a clean cycle has been initiated, if replacing the control did not fix the lock icon, test the switch... Incorrect temp probe and thermostat failures can also make a control "think" it is in a clean cycle.

Too hot


more than likely if it isnt shutting off when it reaches temp. then it probably needs a temp sensor or a EOC (electronic oven control). I have replaced many of these boards in the past , usually there is a relay on the board that is stuck. The relay really isn't replaceable and the whole board needs to be replaced. Does the dispay show the temp that the oven acually is or the temp it is set for?
