  1. Disconnect power to stove
  2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  5. Turn power back on to stove.
  6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
    NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.
Importatnt. few of the newer Maytag ranges with a F1 fault code and the problem was the oven temp sensor, check carefully the wires to and from the oven temp sensor!!

How to unlock a Maytag double oven


Hi Mary,If the door locked after you started the oven!
Press Cancel/Off key to start a latch reset, wait 20-30 seconds and open door, or turn the power off at the circuit breaker or fuse box for one minute, then turn the power back on.
If the oven has a manual latch handle!
Allow the oven to cool, approximately 30-90 minutes, move the latch arm to the left to unlock the door.
If the latch arm will not move after cooling to room temperature, or is stuck in between full right and full left positions, schedule service.
Is the oven door locked due to power failure during Self-Clean? If the oven door locked due to a power failure during a self cleaning cycle!
Select the "Self Clean" option, then select "Cancel". Wait a couple of minutes then try to start the cycle again.
If you started the oven clean cycle by mistake!
Press Cancel/Off key. The oven will need to cool to approximately 200F(95C) before the oven door will open.
Was there an error message!
Follow directions in the display, and refer to the Error Code Symptom, or:
Reset power to the oven!
  • Power the oven down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) or fuse(s) or if you can, unplug the oven for one (1) minute.
  • Turn the power back on turning on the circuit breaker(s) or fuse(s) or plugging it back in.
  • Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.
  • Verify the ovens operation.
Kind regards

Oven door is locked with food in it how to unlock asap


Hi , Anon !
My name is Ashlynn .
If your oven is locked , here's some ways you can unlock it :
  • 1 Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.
  • 2 Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.
  • 3 Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.
  • 4 Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    But it seems you have food inside so ,
    Press cancel on the cooking cycle , and let it cool to room temperature , and then try to open your oven .

    Door won't unlock after self cleaning. Code F1 appeared after cleaning was done. The fan continues to run even after oven is cool and door won't unlock


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa
    Error code F1 is displayed due to electronic oven control failure and the only way to solve this problem is by replacing the control board which is bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Hi

    F1 error means that you have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad. To check these please follow these simple instructions:
    1. Disconnect power to stove
    2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
    3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
    4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
    5. Turn power back on to stove.
    6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
    7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
    8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad...

    Maytag Gemini Stove Code F1-4 (bottom door won't open)


    F-1 error is a Temperature Runaway. It Maytag's way of letting you know that oven overheated. Nothing you have done but it may have shorted out the oven sensor or the keypad. Check the sensor and see if it's closed. If it's okay, replace the keypad.
