I have a freestanding electric maytag range which the oven/broiler is not turning on. You can set the temp on the display but it doesn't trigger the oven to heat up?
I have a similar problem; the oven has "clean" light flashing.We let it self clean for 4 hours and later unplugged it from the outlet briely.
It was heating the elements during "CLEAN" Cycle; but would not turn on
for baking or broiling. Please help? Any suggestions?

Re: Maytag oven problem
Somehow, usually when cleaning the face of the clock area, you locked
the oven control. Go into your manual, and it will tell you how to
unlock it. If I remember right, try holding in the broil button for 5
seconds, that might take it out of the lock mode.

since your broiler works, your valve should be good. Since you replaced your ignitor, the only other thing I would recommend would be the electronic oven control board. There is a sensor that is on the ignitor, the control board reads the signal (temp) coming from the sensor. If the control doesn't read that signal properly, it will not energize the gas valve.
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
Hi, May be the heating coil is bust? The control panel is in parallel usually so as long as the controls are getting power they will turn on. But if the coil is gone you wont get heat. If you want to try fixing it, you may need a multimeter, or a continuity tester.
Unplug the range.
Open the oven door.
Remove the racks.
Remove the 2 screws holding the bake element to the rear wall of the range.
Carefully pull the element from the access holes in the rear wall.
Remove the wires from the element.
With your meter set for continuity, put one lead on each element end.
If you get a reading it is good.
If it is good. Replace the wires and reinstall the element.
Pull the range out from the wall.
Remove the rear panels.
Plug the range back in.
Set your meter for 220volts or more.
Careful now because you are working with live voltage.
Set the oven for bake.
Put a lead on each element terminal to check voltage.
If you have 220 volts at the element, unplug the range and unplug the temperature sensor.
Set your meter for ohms.
Check the 2 leads on the temp sensor.
If at room temp the sensor is 1050 - 1100 it is OK. If not replace it.
If the temp sensor checks out OK, replace the ERC
the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??
