Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a maytag freestanding gas stove. It a probably about 4 years old. The knob that you set the temperature on will stay on the default and will not heat.

The temperature knob kicks up to 350 and will not go back to 100 and start heating like it should.

If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.

If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.

SOURCE: Oven won't heat up to set temperature

IF THIS IS A GAS RANGE, AND IS USED ALOT, 4YEARS IS ABOUT THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE IGNITOR FOR THE OVEN. IF THE IGNITOR IS WEAK, IT MAY NOT OPEN THE SAFETY VALVE. WITH A FLAT IGNITOR, IT REQUIRES 3.3AMPS TO OPEN THE VALVE. IF IT IS A ROUND IGNITOR, IT REQUIRES 2.8 AMPS TO OPEN THE OVEN IGNITOR.

IF THIS IS AN ELECTRIC OVEN WITH AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL, I WOULD SUSPECT THE OVEN SENSOR AS THE DEFECTIVE PART. AT ROOM TEMP, IT SHOULD READ ABOUT 1084 OHMS OF RESISTANCE.
IF IT IS A MECHANICAL CONTROL(WITH A KNOB) IT MAY BE ADJUSTABLE BY REMOVING THE KNOB AND INSERTING A THIN SCREWDRIVER UP THE SHAFT OF THE CONTROL AND TURNING A SCREW IN THE SHAFT TO CALIBRATE THE TEMP.

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:

  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

You probably have a short that is causing the stove not to heat up or you not to be able to control temperature settings. The stoves are made only to last as long as the warranty, and when it expires, the stove all of a sudden wants to break down. You might have to get a whole new stove.

No hot air


If you have a pilot light (small flame) you can try to re-light it by turning the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position and pushing the knob down while lighting the pilot, you may have to hold the knob down for up to 30 seconds before releasing it. The pilot should stay lit and then turn the knob to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit or the main burner will not light it could be the gas valve or the temperature sensor.
