Maytag gas range

We bought a maytag sealed burner gas range-used. It is a power boost.
seemed to work fine, then in the middle of the night the timer went off, would shut it off, and a few minutes later it would sound again, with the message -F1- flashing. It didn't matter what I tried it continued, so I ended up unplugging it, any ideas

    Our 15 year old Maytag power boost gas oven which works great has started beeping and flashes a F1 message even though we are not using it. When we hit cancel it stops but starts again a few hours later.

SOURCE: F1 Error Code on MayTag range

migs, on a Maytag the F1 indicates there is a problem with the touch-pad or control itself. Usually, it's the touch pad. Try killing the power to the range and remove the touch pad ribbon from the control board. Clean it with an eraser. Power back up and see if the error comes back. If it does, remove the ribbon cable again and power up with-out it attached. If the same error still returns, then I would suspect the control board itself. Catriver..post back.

Seems Maytags have never fixed this problem. I have a 1993 and have had to replace the membrane (touchpad) every 4 yrs. If you can do it yourself, actually easy, you will save $$ for repairman, and can order part from Repair Clinic.com.
Only trick is carefully opening up the stove top, having someone hold it up for you while you disconnect the membrane...

SOURCE: Maytag oven doesn't fire, but stovetop burners work fine

This will sound crazy but I had to work through it on my own stove a few years ago. The ignitor (glow tube) was getting hot but the oven would not owrk. When investigating the problem I found that the gas valve will only open when the ignitor pulls a specific amperage or draw of current. As the ignitor ages it pu;;s a reduced draw of current. This causes you to be fooled by the glow nut no gas. Replace your ignitor and your oven will begin to work again!
You can get ignitors easily online by doing a search for "appliance parts" and then entering the model number of your stove. Look for ignitor and you will be good to go. Also check out a few different sites as the prices of the parts can vary quite a bit.

I have a maytag MGS 5770 ADA range/oven. The oven does not heat. The top burners and broilers work fine. However, the bottom oven burner doesnt kick in. the igniter glows red hot but the gas never...


I would start by replacing the ignitor. It could glow enough to light the oven, but to maintain the burner, it often re-ignites several times during a cooking cycle. I have had the problem before, replaced the ignitor and all was well. You should be able to find an ignitor for under $40 online. Just google 'Maytag oven ignitor' and you should find many offers. My sister just bought one for $19.99!

make sure the wire is connected to the ignition(where it sparks)if it is gently clean the sparking surface with a piece of fine sandpaper.Hope this helps,if it still does'nt work you may need to replace this part but it should'nt be expensive and you can do it yourself(usually one screw) ps sorry for the late reply.

Electronic touch pad not working on my oven


Hello beachlady80,
Welcome

You said, It was working fine last night but when you woke up this morning the display has 3 vertical lines and none of the electronic touch pads work. The burners on top of the stove still work.

What is the model number and how old is the range ?

Try turning the breaker off for 10 minutes and then on again after this allotted time.
This may reset the system.
Let me know how it works.


Waiting for your answer.

My maytag gas range has sealed burners. They need to be adjusted because they dont ignite properly and they blow out when you turn it on high


Peace,
ngafm here at your service,

How old is the range ?
You may have some food that spilled into the burner and it could be causing the gas not to fully flow out of that burner so
it will come out with force.
If you have sealed burners and the cap and burner where the gas comes out, is removable by hand without tools!
You may want to check the gas holes in the removable burner is clear and or clean them out if they are clogged.
How old is the range?
I hope that these measures will help you remedy the problem simply and easily!
Bless you,
ngafm

Range mgr 5745 sealed burner


Yes the burner does twist off. You must turn it counter clockwise about 1/4 of a turn. These can be stuburn at times so what you might want to do is strike it sharply down with the heal of your hand first then give it a twist. this seems to help.

Sealed Burner


Ralph, you need to look at the electrodes at the burners. They might be cracked or dirty. It's very hard to tell sometimes when they are cracked. The burner cap itself has to have a good ground and the wires going to the electrode should be on tight. You can eliminate the spark module by switching the right and left side burner wires at the module. Once you do that, if the right side works ok, but now the left doesn't, you can be pretty sure it's the module...Catriver..post back.
