Oven only heats up to 100 degrees, but the temp on the oven says 350. Do you think it is the sensor or the control board?

Right now, it's a toss-up. The only way to separate the two possibilities is to first find the nominal value of the sensor, then measure it.

Why doesn't it heat to set temperature?


Hello. In most ovens with an electronic control, the temperature is regulated by 2 things--the sensor and the oven control board. The sensor is simply an electrically resistive device that changes resistance as the temperature increases or decreases. It is connected to the main control board by 2 wires(just a "pigtail") and the main board is supposed to be calibrated to adjust properly. Most control boards have a built-in program by which you can adjust the calibration +/- 35 degrees. If your oven is outside that range, and you're sure that the sensor is good, the connections are good, etc., then the oven control board temp control circuit has gone bad. Keep in mind, when you turn on an electronically controlled oven, the first time it heats up is USUALLY hotter by about 50 degrees--this allows the floor, walls, and ceiling to reach proper temperature. This is called the initial spike. In gas ovens, the user must wait approximately 8-10 minutes AFTER the oven beeps to cook anything. In an exposed-element electric oven, the user waits approximately 10-15 minutes after the beep. In the hidden bake element models, waiting 20-25 minutes after the beep is normal!
Also, keep in mind, ovens can have 60 degree temp swings higher and lower(as long as the midpoint is close to the chosen temp) I hope I've helped you!

Alarm going off on whirlpool stove with flat top. Showing F2. Cannot find manual


Hello,

The F2 error code means that the oven temp. sensor has detected that the temp.of the oven was at least 100 degrees what the setting was ...if it was set at 350 it heated to at least 450...this sometimes is a electronic fluke especially if you didnt see wher ewhat ever you were cooking because it over heated,if that is the case you didnt experience something burnt,the F2 can can cleared by pushing cancel/off button

If the F2 does returns the oven sensor should be replaced

What's an f1 and f2 code mean???


Hello,

The F1 code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck

The F2 means that the oven tempature was at least 100 degrees over what the temp it was set to was

the F1 will come sometimes if the ribbon connection on the touchpad doesnt fit well into the control board and other times it comes because the touchpad is defective

the F2 comes up because the control has measures the temp and thinks that when it set as lets say fro instiance 350 degrees the control thinks the temp ahs reached 450 degrees(100 plus over) typically the thing wrong when the F2 comes up is the oven sensor at room temp to be between 1060-1100 ohms

However if you are getting both error codes at the same time the only thing common to both is the oven control and if both at the same time i suspect the control is the problem

Oven not heating up


Problem with oven sensor or control board (ERC). Oven sensor at room temperature should have resistance about 1080 Ohms, and it rises with temp rise.

I have to adjust my oven temperature with an oven thermometer. I have to set the oven higher to get to the temperature I want. It's sometimes as much as 100 degrees lower than the setting. To get it to 350...


Oven temp sensor failure, possible control board problem. Unit thinks its a different temp. sensor connects directly to control....suggest you to call maytag cust service....sometimes they will assist with parts

Oven won't reach proper temperature and hold


If the element glows its ok , if you have replaced the sensor with a new one it can only be the control board. in some cases you can adjust the temp. through the control , it should list directions to do so in the manual. Good luck

Oven temp set at 350. only heated to 310 after 1 hour! Set to 390 before reached 350. What to do?


Use an oven thermometer Try to figure out if by setting it to 390 it will maintain 350 accurately. (A 25 degree change while it cycles is normal. It will probably overshoot before going off and undershoot a little before cycling on.) If so the thermostat has just drifted. Pull off the control know and look usually there is an adjustment on the shaft to change the temp showing on the knob. set it up 50 degrees. If the knob can't be changed just know that you have to adjust yourself. If it won't maintain a steady temp the thermostat is bad and will need to be replaced. The thermostat will be over $100 it may not be worth it. If this is a computer controled unit (pushbutton temp selection) the sensor needs to be replaced. This is a lot cheaper than a thermostat.
