Maytag oven will not heat, no gas flow. Broiler works, clock and timer works.


Hi,

You may even see the orange "glow plug" (called a hot surface igniter) glowing orange and so assume that it's OK. Not necessarily!! You have to measure the current/amp drawn by the igniter and compare it to this repair sheet before you can say it's OK or not. The gas valve has a bi-metal that open when a certain amount of current flows through it to heat it up. The igniter is wired in series with the gas valve. As the igniter gets older or weaker, it's resistance increases to the point where not enough current is flowing to the gas valve bimetal to open it up. As a result, the gas valve never opens up. BTW, a common symptom of the early stages of this problem is erratic temperature control in the oven due to delayed firing of the bake burner while cooking.

The hot surface igniter will not come on - check igniter with a ohm meter, you should have continuity through the glow bar, the glow bar can also crack = new igniter time. The glow bar comes on but the main burner will not light - you should have an amp probe to check properly, but often this is a hot surface igniter problem. The hot surface igniter often looses it's ability to get hot enough to open the gas safety valve. The safety valve can fail, but most times it is just a bad hot surface igniter. The hot surface igniter can also quit part way through cooking , in other words the oven may cycle a couple of times and then it just sits there with the red glow from the igniter. See this service sheet for the proper way and amp readings for the hot surface igniter system. Hot surface igniters do weaken and will eventually generate less heat than they normally could. When this happens they can still allow marginally correct current to flow to the oven gas valve for it to open but not get quite hot enough to ignite the gas burner immediately. When this happens, gas released into the oven can sometimes build up to the point where when finally ignited, the amount of gas lit can cause a small explosion inside the oven or cause an odor of gas with out the oven working. Yes, your glow bar igniter can glow orange-red and still be bad!! How a common gas valve works - click here.



Let me know,if needed further assistance.



Hope i helped you.



Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Fissler Pressure cooker has steam coming out from the Utimax valve, is this normal?


Hi. Some steam is ok. But when it is running it should be sealed up. The little rocker should be doing it's thing too. Good luck.

The induction cooker when put on it shows E6 after about a minute or so and no heating takes place.


There is a error message there, it indicate a problem with your induction cooker. It cause a defective winding wire or circuit controllers your know induction cooker works similar to the principle of electro magnet induction, it give heat to metal cooking pot. I hope I give you a idea regarding what happen to your unit.

Prestige Automatic pressure cooker Instruction


You really need the instruction manual for this model to provide you with full information on how to work it, however the recipes will probably be the same as printed in any other Prestige PC that works at 15/10/5 psi.

I have a copy of a 12 page brochure entitled 'Pressure Cooking - The Fact and the Fiction' that Prestige produced when this model was first introduced. In there there is one page of instructions and illustrations devoted to the Automatic. This gives the following four steps :

1. Put your ingredients in - and the liquid.

2. Secure the lid and set the switch. Turn heat up full.

3. When pressure is reached, set timer, move switch to AUTO, lower the heat.

4. When the bell rings, turn heat off - cooker will release steam automatically. Open and serve.

Hope that this helps.

Microwave doesnot heat anything


6 years is a good run for a microwave to keep working
as it is basically a high frequency radio transmitter, take it in for a proper diagnosis and a quote
mostly after 6 years there may be a shortage of parts available for repair so keep in mind that it may be cheaper to junk it and get a later model

JUst purchased a Cook's Essentials programmable pressure cooker, but cannot get it to heat. The program mode seems to be working, that is, all thae proper lights light up, but no heat in element whatsoever...


If you're following the instruction manual but it won't heat, and it's within the 30 day return period, I'd take it back to the dealer for a replacement.

If it's past 30 days, but within the warranty period, you'd have to contact the manufacturer via the owner's manual to get it repaired.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
