Re: oven

Andrew, first check to see if you have the control set for centigrade instead of Farenheit. You can find the instructions by clicking on the oven icon just above your post. The owners manual will come up. If that is ok, check to see that the element is getting 240 V. I assume you meant 450 degrees instead of 45. Catriver.

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!

Oven would not light. I replaced the igniter and now it lights but it will not heat past 200 degrees. Is this the thermostat acting up or is this connected to the gas supply? Any suggestions??? My oven...

when you say now it lights. is just the ignitor lighting?or can you hear the gas flowing??? can you feel it heating at all?? should start at 100 degrees and climb up from there. no reason for it not to heat past 200 (unless set to Celsius which default setting of 350 =190degress) therefore will not heat past 200. and wont let you try to heat to 425 , that would be off the charts of Celsius conversion. sensor problem would eitherno t let stove come on or wouldnt stop from heating eitherway a code would come up in the display

Hi. I have a Maytag CWE4200ACB wall mount oven that seems to have a circuit board/timer problem. When the oven is turned on and temp set you can hear (at the control panel) one click and the "on"...


The clicking noise comes from the control board relays. The board has three relays. One for for bake. One for broil. One for light/fan auxiliary functions.

Try switching on only bake or broil. If one of the two elements (either bake or broil) gets hot, then the problem is either element or timer board. Make sure that the element has continuity at the Ohm meter.

If both bake and broil do not work test first the oven temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity. Make sure that impedance of the sensor at room is about 1.1KOhms . If sensor is open or shorted, replace the sensor. If sensor reading is OK test wiring and elements for continuity and eventually replace the control board if the rest is OK. Even if door switch should not affect regular programs, check the door switch reading impedance or jumping it.To test wiring test continuity of red and black lines. Check black line between power cord and relay board. Test with particular attention the oven temperature sensor, that is a common cause for your symptoms. Here the part:Long Oven Sensor Kit

Here a wiring diagram for your oven.

Here all parts and diagrams.

My oven heating element doesn't get red and the oven temperature rises only until 270 degrees. The broiler element works fine. Any thoughts?

I removed the heating element and checked it with an ohmeter, which showed the element had shorted out. I've purchased another element on line.

Most likely a bad temperature sensor if the bake element is coming on and not reaching temperature.
The temperature sensor is in the back wall of the oven up high on the right or left side depending upon your model number. It is about 3 inches long and about the size of a thin pencil. It removes from the inside of the oven.

Heat in lower oven will not exceed 185 degrees

Several possibilities:

1. Bake/broil elements are bad - can you see them glow red?

2. Temperature sensor is out of wack - does the temperature displayed agree with the actual oven temperature? The sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance.

3. If the elements and sensors check out and the oven "thinks" it is hot when it's not, then it is probably your control board. In this case we may be able to help you, we repair these at
