MER6770 Fault Code

Looking at your site a F 1-2 indicates a faulty sensor in the lower oven. I also get that code when using the upper oven. Recently it's been going off just after I've turned the stove off - upper oven at 350 and top right/front burner seems to be the combination that triggers that. Should I be looking at sensors for both ovens?

Re: MER6770 Fault Code

No. just the one sensor part number 12001656. After paying a maytag repairman twice, I will now for the third time replace it myself, google the part number and you will see the different companies that sell it. Price runs up to 40.00, next time buy a different product and hope that Maytag goes out of business!!!! I know I will!!!

Kenmore oven 9114288816

The "F3" fault indicates an open oven sensor probe or an open sensor circuit. The oven temperature sensor is no longer available. The oven temperature sensor circuit also has thermal fuse connected in a series circuit in one of the two wires in the sensor circuit. Based on the fault code, the sensor is faulty or the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse comes with the oven temperature sensor. Here is the part to order.

F1-2 prompt keeps beeping

"F1:2" is a Runaway Cook Lower Oven error. This indicates that the oven temperature sensor is defective and needs replaced. The following link explains how to replace an oven sensor on most ranges:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. The sensor is listed as item 7 under the "Oven" parts listing.

If you have any questions please post and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

What does the F3-1 code on a Maytag flat top double oven range mean?

Solution - Check sensor and wiring for shorted or open circuit. you need a multimeter to check them. Please post comments for further help or information........

Good Luck!!

Maytag MER6770 F1-3 code Serial #12650733ws

F1-3 is the code for the upper oven being over 950 deg F.
If the oven is now cool, then most likely there is a problem with the temp sensor in the upper oven.
You will need to remove the rear panel from the stove and check the resistence of the sensor to know for sure if it is bad. The only other way is to hook a new sensor to the harness and see if doors will unlock then.
Post back if you have any questions.

Maytag Gemini Electric stove fault code F 1-2 when using the oven(s)

The oven temp sensor has gone bad.  F1-2 would be for the lower oven and F1-1 would mean the upper oven.  If you give me the model # from the sticker on the oven I can direct you to a diagram, part #, and price.  These are very easy to replace.  Should be located inside the oven in the upper right or left hand side.  It looks like a silver rod about 4-8 inches long and crimped on the end.  Most of them can be removed from inside the oven by removing the two screws, pull out the sensor (harness and all) plug in the new sensor, put the screws back in and your done.  Some have to be removed from the back of the oven by removing the lower, larger back panel and follow the same process as mentioned above.  Hope this helps.
