Sticking Knob I have a Maytag Performa gas/electric range. Today when I turned the oven on the knob was stiff. It is only getting stiffer as the day goes on and we cook. Any ideas?

There is nothing to do other than replacing the burner switch, no rhyme or reason why it goes bad , but there is no adjustment

Setting the clock


To set the time, turn and hold the Timer knob to the clock
symbol = and at the same time turn the Adjusting knob left
or right until the clock shows the time of day. Remember this
is a 24-hour clock. Let go of the Timer knob and it will spring
back to the vertical, oven manual setting.

My right front burner does not work on low. it does not turn on until you turn the knob to about the medium setting


many burners have safety mechanism that shuts the flow of gas when it is cold. it is there to prevent the flow of gas in the case when the fire was put out by wind or split of water.
you didn't mention if after the fire is lighted, are you able to turn the knob back to low.

Maytag Performa Electric Range (PER1510) tripped circuit breaker when immediately following turning the oven on. There was a mild electric burn smell from behind the range. I have left the circuit...


first, un-plug unit and remove rear access cover,it could be a wire with bad insulation that has shorted to the body of the unit,could be an oven/broiler element,could be one of your feed lines to the unit shorted to ground,does it trip brkr w/o anything turned on???you can also isolate the problem that way.good luck

Bottom oven is not working - I set it but it isn't heating at all. There are no errors being issued, no gas odor. The top oven is working fine


Hi, open oven door, remove last panel, you will see oven burner, check pilot, if you see a small tube, manually strick a match and light it, then turn oven knob to on position, but if there's no pilot tube, then you got electrical ignition, could be faulty thermostat(knob you turn to put oven on) or thermocouple(device where oven burner conected too) could be faulty. but first check your oven pilot, it should be always lighting, sometimes, they get blown out. good luck.

Hotpoint oven/range


Is it a gas or electric if it is gas take knob off usally in front where it says 150 degrees and up and if you look down the shaft you will see a little screw turn it counter clockwise to turn oven down if it is electric take knob off where it says 150 /250/etc... and look behind the knob in your hand it has 2 screws to adjust the oven temp.

Calibration


Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.

Retractable function selector knob stuck


problem is caused by the sprung mechanism within the control knob sticking remove the knob completly, try to squeeze together in your hand to release and then spray with a wd40 type product, if this fails you will need to replace the knob, the knob only pulls off. Engineer
