Re: Oven elements don't work,Bake broil or clean. Display...
Always check your breakers first (220v breaker has 2 legs, be sure both sides of the breaker are in the solid on position) and plug. The next step will be to verify voltage to the element, if it has 220v then the element will have to be replaced if it doesn't then you'll have to find the contactswitch for the element. High amperage components such as oven elements tend to be tough on contact surfaces in switches , carbon deposits build up and the contact fails, You must find the failure in the circuit and replace the faulty component.

A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?
Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:
Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.
Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.
Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.
Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.
You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.
You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to
become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20-40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained
in memory after a power failure.
Adjust the oven thermostat-Do it yourself!
To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the BAKEand BROIL HI/LOpads
at the same time for 2 seconds until
the display shows SF.
Touch the BAKEpad. A two digit
number shows in the display.
The oven temperature can be adjusted
up to (+) 35°F hotter or (-) 35°F
cooler. Touch the + pad to increase the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
Touch the - pad to decrease the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
When you have made the adjustment,
touch the START/ON pad to go back to
the time of day display. Use your oven
as you would normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling
or self-cleaning temperatures. It will be retained
in memory after a power failure
From what you are describing, it seems there was an "arc" from where the element itself was supposed to connected to the power in the bottom portion of the stove.
This may have caused the connector itself to burn, seal, or carbonize I.E. Blacken and not allow the element to properly connect to the internal workings.
The other possibility, because the broil is still working is that this particular model of a stove has multiple fuses for controlling the different elements in the oven portion.
You would need to consult the manual, likely available online via model number. The ranges themselves rarley change the electronics inside and if you cannot find the exact model number maybe a newer model 3 year newer would help.
The first thing to check is going to be the fuses themselves. If you have a multimeter available to check the current in the fuses.
If indeed it is the connectors where the element "clips" in to the base of the oven that has gone out, the work to replace it might be more tedious to accomplish.
If you find it is not the fuses, you can consult a repair guy, but likely, parts and labor will be more expensive than replacing the range itself.
Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
try to hold down the light switch on the door set it up for another cleaning hit start when oven clean door lock showes hit cancel if that doesnt work try unplugging it for three min fyi the doors can take up to an hour to un lock after cleaning its so it dont burn your face off from the intense heat after cleaning some take 2
MAYTAG Type "C" and "D" Clocks Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes
Supervisory relay enable shorted (non-cook mode); sounds alarm and inhibits cook mode if alarm fault monitor is always active in non-cook mode, and requires removal of power until serviced.
Usually a bad touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC). Replace touchpad or ERC
Bake/broil/clean temp runaway alarm; sounds alarm and resets control to non-cook mode when bake/broil/clean temp exceeds programmed limits.
Usually means a stuck relay. Electric @ 525F (bake), 640F(broil), 900F(clean)
Gas @ 525F (bake), 640F(broil), 900F(clean)
Open temp oven temperature sensor; sounds alarm and inhibits cook mode
Replace oven temperature sensor
Shorted temp oven temperature sensor; sounds alarm and inhibits cook mode
Replace oven temperature sensor
Supervisory relay enable open (cook mode); sounds alarm and resets the control to non-cook mode
Replace electronic range control (ERC)
Missing a/c line cycle detector; displays code (no audible)
Unplug appliance for two minutes, should clear problem
Function key shorted; too hot at the clock assembly (also called the ERC) or shorted touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC)
Replace touchpad or ERC
Analog/Digital supervisory; sounds alarm to non-cook mode
Door latch supervisory (door latched)
Unlock door and check switches or clock assembly (also called the ERC)
Cancel key supervision
Requires the removal of power until serviced. See qualified technician
My Spectra XL44 suddenly refuses to ignite the baking portion of the oven - broiler and top work just fine. The day before it was working fine. Wondered if it was an electrical egnition problem - gas feed or what??? Help!! Mregressor@aol.com
Paul, the F9-3 code has to do with the oven door lock motor assy.. Water must have gotten on to it and now the fault. There is a quick test mode on the model ending in aab, if yours ends in this try this. Unplug the oven for 30 seconds, plug it back in and press and hold the cancel and broil buttons together. It should enter test mode. When in the test mode press the clean button to see if the motor activates and resets. Press cancel to exit the test mode...Catriver...post back
