Oven won't stay hot

I turn my Maytag oven on to a certain temperature and the element lights up but will not stay hot. Could you tell me what could be wrong?

    If it's not tripping a circuit breaker, and the oven is just not coming up to temperature, yet the elements do get hot, then it's either the thermostat or the door sensor.

    And, elements do not normally "light up" or glow because if they do, they will fail much sooner than they should. If this is happening, then there may be some other problem that needs to be diagnosed.

Bottom oven on Magtag Gemini burning bottoms of everything


when you set oven on bake the broil element comes on too,set the bottom oven on broil and see if the element gets hot,if not,unplug the machine or kill the power going to it,remove the element and check it with a meter to see if the element is bad,if so change out broil element if element is good you could have a broken wire or bad clock assy.there's a computer board with the clock that everything runs through,hopefully you have a bad element,if the element is coming on next thing to check is the sensor,this tells the computer how hot it is so it will turn the elements on and off,if you look behind the top panel in the back i think the paperwork is in a plastic pouch,it will tell you how to read out the sensor,i think it's 1080 ohms,or you can read out the sensor on the top oven and then check the bottom sensor and hopefully it will be a bad broil element or sensor and not the clock assy. hope this helps.

Whirlpool Range model RF386PXGQ2 broiler won't shut off


Hi.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:

Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.

Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.

Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.

Testing must be done by a trained technician.

Fan turned on by self, won't turn off


Hi,
The unit has a temperature sensing device that turns on the fan if it gets too hot...if it is very hot in your house it could turn this on...
If it is not overly hot then the thermistor or the main control board have gone bad and are reading an incorrect temperature...

The oven does not cook the food, it only warms the food.


Two possible problems. If the oven has two or more elements for normal operation then one of these elements may be faulty. The thermostat may also be faulty and only heating to a far lesser temperature than required. The way to tell is turn the oven to a normal cooking temperature.
If the oven indicator light stays on all the time and doesn't cycle off then it may be an element problem, meaning that the oven can't reach the temperature setting desired.
If the oven indicator light goes off after a while and then cycles on and off then the thermostat is working correctly but the temperature may not be hot enough. You may have to purchase a small oven thermometer and check the oven temperature against the thermometer to get a better idea of what the problem is.

Oven lights, but temp does not get above 100


The gas burner is broken. There is an upper burner and a lower burner. In-order for both burners to turn on, both must be working to let the gas turn on. If one burner element is out the oven wont get hot just warm.

Oven over heats and gives a 1D11 fault


I have a similar unit with a similar problem, and found the Maytag troubleshooting manual online. Code 1d11 means the the unit reached 600 degrees (not supposed to get that hot). Basically, it had a runaway temperature. The computer does not know why it happened, so it just tells you that it happened by showing code 1d11. But you can tell what went wrong by your description of the problem: the broiler element was turned on without any command from you. Which means the swithc/relay in the electronic control unit is bad. I am guessing it was fried when you ran the oven through the self-cleaning phase (should not get fried with this little of heat--it was defective to begin with). Mine just went bad after 4 years of use. You can get an electronic control unit for this unit for around $170 at Sears online parts store. Notice that Maytag has replaced the old part number for this electronic control unit with a new one, which probably means they had a design flaw and have fixed it.

Oven light


This is done to regulate the temperature. Higher heat settings will let the element stay on longer, while lower settings will turn it off sooner. Even on high, the elements may turn off periodically because there is a switch called a temperature limiter. Its job is to keep the element from overheating.
