Question about Maytag MER6769 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range

F1-6 Fault Code

We have a Maytag MER6769BA Gemini Electric Range and were boling water (back left burn) when the it started beeping. There was also a message that started scrolling across the display showing the "F1-6 Call authorized servicer or dealer 888-462-9824". The manual calls it a fault code and said to hit cancel. If it continues, disconnect power and wait a few minutes, than reconnect. If it continues call authorized servicer. I disconnected and it appears to have solved it but still would like to know what F1-6 means, any clue?

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.
