Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Maytag Gemini electric oven

When the top oven is turned on to preheat, it does preheat, and then after a few minutes will beep twice and shut off. Sometimes I can just turn it back on and it stays on for about 15 minutes, and then double beep and shuts off, but this time I can't turn it back on until it cools completely. I don't think it is heating properly either--food takes a long time to cook. There have not been any error codes. This problem began after cleaning the oven.

Re: Maytag Gemini electric oven

Well my friend these type ovens have eyes and sensers. It could be that you left something on the sensor when you were cleaning it. That is if it is not self cleaning. Self cleaning gets real hot and could affect your appliance in some way. It shouldn't but it might.

Getting a F1-4 error code on my Maytag Gemini model # 6772. Came home to the upper oven at full heat with the control panel beeping. Extremely dangerous situation where the oven would not shut off at the...

Hi greg_shanoia,

The F1:-4 error code means "Runaway Clean Lower oven". You need to check the oven temperature sensor, replace if necessary.

Hope it helps.

The oven shuts itself off after preheating.

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Purchased at Maytag Gemini MER6770 in 2000. It

Sounds like the cancel (or stop) button is making contact by itself. Clock (oven control board) may need replacement.
One option to buy it new, your part number is 12001661
Coupon "New10" chops 10% off.
Another is to send the clock to be rebuilt. Google "stove timer rebuild", you'll find plenty of companies which can repair your original clock. In case you need it, the original part number is 74004542.
To get to the clock, remove the back of the control panel. Good luck.

Hello bigboy1666,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, Oven does not show any displace and does not work. When you try to turn on the top oven, the displace shows h3 132 and the clock shows 12:00 .
You try to turn the upper and lower oven, none of them work. The light in the oven comes on okay.

Lets try to reset the system.
trun off the range.
Now trhow the breaker in the electric box off for 5 minutes.
after waiting 5 minutes turn the power on and try the range!
Let me know how she works.

Huuum at your service.
Please remember to leave a rating!
