You are in the Tiller and Cultivator section of FIXYA but have you tried unplugging or shutting off the Breaker for a few seconds and let the Oven 'reboot'? Ahh, what ever happened to the simple good old fashioned Ovens?
Your valve switches are defective. Sometime they will do that if you recently had a boil over and they have got wet. Try turning the breaker off for 24 hours to see if the fixes the problem.http://www.on-timeappliance.com/ovenrepair.html
Your breaker in the breaker box has a double pole breaker for the stove one breaker is shot so you still have 120volts which runs the lights 240volts for the elements.Turn main power off and replace the breaker. To verify for sure pull the stove out and unplug it check power at the plug you need 240volts at the plug. If i dont have a plug and wired straight in disconnect the wires and check the wires.
Not if you can access you main electrical panel. You should be able to turn off the 50 Amp Double Pole Breaker that provides power to the wall oven/ Note, sometimes it's a 40 or a 60 amp breaker depending on the age and requirements for the wall oven.
You should be able to turn off the breaker and safely remove the oven and disconnect the wiring connections once you pull the oven out of the opening. Be sure to fully tape each wire once you disconnect them from the oven to prevent an accidents - also, LEAVE THE BREAKER OFF until the new oven has been properly installed!
IF you aren't sure which breaker it is and really want to be ultra safe, you can shut off the main breaker, but you'll be without power until you've got the oven removed and have safely taped each conductor with SEVERAL wraps of electrical tape to prevent contact with the bare conductors.
Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!
Put in a new thermastat in the top oven and it works great. Thanks for the advice(from other's having problems).
My Maytag was older than I thought, so the thermastat was not available on line, but found one at a repair shop that worked. Thanks!
Yes you will have to remove the back panel , but first shut off the breaker to the stove as one of these wires go directly to the power cord. Normally I would tell you to unplug it but in trying to move it out you may cause one of the wires to touch the frame and ZAPPP you! So please b4 you go farther shut the breaker off. Once you have the stove pulled out, it should have several screws that hold the back on. Not a big deal. Push the element through and connect the wires. In the future be very careful as you are pulling the element out and usually the wires will stay connected and you can replace the element from the front. Just remember to shut the power off first!
