How close should the temp control hold the temp


Generally the oven temperature will fluctuate as much as 30 degrees above or below the set temperature. The longer the oven is on, the less the temperature fluctuates. If you measure the highest and lowest temperatures readings with a thermometer after the oven has been preheated at least 20 minutes, you should come up with an average temperature somewhere within about 10 degrees of the set temperature. You can calibrate most ovens up to 35 degrees higher or lower if it is off. Any more than that requires replacing parts.

Takes an extremely long time to cook in oven, but elements seem to be working


If your oven has a digital timer then it is capable of being calibrated. Usually the oven is pretty close to accurate but can vary sometimes. In your user guide it may explain how to adjust the setting. You need to purchase a thermometer that you can put in your stove. Set it to 300 degrees and time how long it takes to stabilize. It is possible your stove will not get to 300 but to 270 or 280. If this is the case then the thermostat needs calibration. You can find out how to do this out of your guide or in the tech sheet that you should be able to find on line.

The thermostat is the cause of the problem, normally the the only cure is to replace the oven thermostat,completely, or alternatively, compensate by setting a lower temperature when cooking.
this will work o/k if it is always the same variation in temperature across the range .

I think the oven is not getting hot enough,i have baked three


Buy an oven thermometer to check if the temperature you set the oven at is accurate. You may have a faulty thermostat, but if the temp is only off by a little, you can calibrate the temp setting on the oven by as much as + or - 25 degrees. If you have an LCD screen, then most likely you can adjust it right on there. If not, then the backside of the oven knob can be adjusted + or -. by moving a set screw and turning as needed. Your owner's manual will have a more detailed explanation on this procedure. Douglas

Temp cycle span from on to off is 32 and 33 degrees respectvly


Obviously the thermostat calibration is out, most manufactures allow a tolerance of + or- 10%, so yours is outside this range.
You can compensate by setting the temperature lower by say 20 degrees, this will then bring it within accepted tolerances.
Hope this helps you.

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.

Could be a couple things. If your machine is actually failing either a control board or an oven sensor.

Also measuring the temperature can only be done by a tech unless you have a special tool. Oven thermometers are inaccurate. Plus most ranges should vary temp between 50-75 degrees unless has a feature or the more recent ones keep it between 15-25 degrees.

Try the biscuit test, buy some biscuit, brand not important, i just say pillsbury. Cook exactly as recommended on package. If results are a little overcooked or a bit undercook try a feature called Adjusting the oven temperature or Calibrating the oven. This can be done by following the instructions in your book.

Maytag.com click support click manuals put in model MER5775QA (notice i took off your models S) open the Use guide, page 14
