Maytag oven not lighting

A couple days ago, my wife noticed that our oven was not reaching it's temperature(it was still stuck at around 160 degrees)After looking online for a while i thought it was the igniterthat i sawunder the oven, ordered it wednesday , it got here about an hour ago, Oven still won't light, hopefully they will return the part, and hopefully I will find out what is actually wrong with our oven, ANy suggestions?

    i just checked the amperage through the new igniter, i am reading 3.6 amps. I wish I checked my old one prior to ordering the new one. Where is my safety valve at?

SOURCE: Maytag oven needs temp calibration

Take your temp knob off and look in the center of the stem and you should find a small set screw. Using a small precision screwdriver, turn the screw until you see the light come on. (You won't have to turn it far.) Turn it a little at a time, maybe a 1/16 of a turn. Leave your thermometer in the oven with the door closed and at or near the temp probe that is in the oven. This way, you are getting a true reading.

SOURCE: Dimming temperature and clock light on display window

I found capacitor c3 (68 uf 35 volt) had leaked and dried up, causing the display to fail. I unsoldered and tested c1, c4, c7, and made sure they were good, using a digital multimeter with the ability to test capacitors. C3 also had visible signs of leakage. Works like a charm again, and the display is bright like new!

SOURCE: Hi I have a Maytag

It could be either . The sensor can be checked with a good meter room temp should be around 1200ohms and change with added temp.

How do I replace the bottom oven element on my Maytag CWE5800?


This shouldn't be too difficult. Make sure the power is off. Remove the screws that hold the oven element in place. carefully pull the element out from the back wall without losing the wires back in the holes. Install the wire on the new element push it back in the wall. Reinstall the screws and you are set. Turn the power back on and check to make sure the oven cycles when it reaches the set temperature.

Turn oven on to bake when it reaches temp oven cuts off and f2 sh


This indicates the oven has reached an over temperature. You will first need to check the temperature probe for the proper reading. Refer to the tech sheet located somewhere on your stove. It should be around 1100 ohms. If this checks out good the ERC electronic range control will need to be replaced. Here is a couple links that should help

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...


If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

Incorrect temperature


under the oven knob is the screw that adjusts the temp. remove the knob and with a small blade screwdriver adjust the temp according to your wife's oven thermometer CW+hotter CCW=cooler
then on the back of the knob is a screw to adjust the position of the knob with respect to the marker

Do I have a problem?


Begin by obtaining an oven thermometer. Check to see that the oven does reach the temperature you set it at. Check this a couple of times. If you see a serious difference between what you set and what you get, the heaating element may need to be replaced. Hope this helps you. good luck.

GE Model JKP12G0P2BG Wall Oven Bake Element Not Working Properly


The temperature sensor is bad. The broil element will work even if the temp sensor is bad but the bake element will not. If you measure the resistance across the contacts on the sensor, it should be around 20 ohms, if it is much higher (1000+), then it is bad and should be replaced. It is just as easy to replace as the elements and looks like a small pencil sized rod in the inside top of the oven. Let me know how this works out for you.

F2 and F3 error codes...Is the oven REALLY fixed now?


The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site. 
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws. 

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement. 

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven. 

If you continue getting the F2 error after replacing the sensor, then the problem is likely in the control module - this is the circuit board behind the keypad and clock. 

You'll need to remove the decorative bezel to get behind the control panel. Remove screws and set off parts in order - it's not complicated. Once the bezel is off there are two more screws that hold the panel in place. Then you can lift the panel up about a half inch and pivot it forward toward you. You'll see a bunch of wires going to a circuit board. 

On the panel you will notice some black plastic boxes that say "Potter & Brumfield" on them. These are relays. Check the relays - slide the black plastic cover straight up to expose the coil and the contacts. The coil, when energized, closes the contacts - look at all the relays. You can manually close the contacts with your finger (be gentle). If the contacts of one of them are stuck, they might be welded together. You can fix the problem by prying apart the welded contacts gently with a knife blade. Take some time to gently polish the relay contacts with a folded bit of fine grain sandpaper - this will get some more life out of them. Be gentle and careful - the relays aren't complicated but if you bend the contact or rip it out, you'll have to replace the controller, which will set you back a couple hundred dollars. If you unstick and burnish the relays, they will probably eventually weld together again as the rough spot will spark, but when you burnish them with sandpaper they should be good for some more life before they need to be replaced. 

If the problem isn't the temp sensor or welded relay contacts then the problem is obviously somewhere else, but temp sensor and relay contacts will account for the lion's share of F2 errors. 

Once again, be safe, be careful, be gentle. Ovens are not very complicated and they're tough, but always exercise care. Always disconnect electricity before messing with them.
thanks
good luck
