Question about Maytag CWE4800A Electric Single Oven

Won't turn off

Last night after cooking a peach pie, then a ham & potatoes I turned off my oven. When I turned it back on to make bisquits it made an electrical zap & the lights in my house flashed. After the biscuits were done I turned off the oven (so I thought) but it stayed on w/ the fan running. We had company over so I really didn't notice it until later. The oven looked like it was off but it was still heating. We got the oven/fan to turn off but it started up again on it's own. I think it probably never shut off but the fan came on again to cool it down. I tried taking out the fuse & left it out all night. Today, I put it back in & the oven started up by itself. I thought I had it turned off again but apparently it was only the fan since the elements were hot. I even tried taking out the breaker that turns the electricity off to the entire house hoping that would reset it...but to no avail.

Sounds like maybe a wire burned off of an element terminal and shorted to ground. This would bypass the thermostat, so to speak, and continue to heat at 1/4 wattage. The only way to control this failure would be to turn off the power to the oven, but it won't reset until the burned wire is repaired.

Bosch wall oven (electric) heats up but baking 2 pumpkin pies & 1" cubed sweet potatoes took over 2 hours, crust still doughy and not browned, potatoes cooked but did not brown.


Have you checked your elements? They could be going bad otherwise your oven control board is going bad and needs to be repaired. The Repair Shack offers a service which can fix this issue of the problem is in fact the Conteol Board. Check your elements first and then give them a call, they will be able to save you some money on the element(s). Otherwise they can help you get the control boards repaired.

Oven not heating


you could have lost one of your 120v leads to the machine. that could cause it to work only half way. go turn the breaker off and then turn it back on and see if that corrects the problem.

Whirlpool oven accubake system


I have a whirlpool accubake wall oven. Half-way through baking a pie ,unknown to me, the oven went to the self-clean mode , the door locked and the pie started to burn. I tried to turn the oven off but it would not cut off. I immediately ran to the house's main power and turned off the oven breaker. I waited for a short time to let the oven cool enough to open the door and get the burned pie out, then went back to turn my breaker back on and the oven (even though in the off mode) started heating again with the bottom unit turning red again. I had to then go back and pull the power. We tried this several times trying to push the off button but the oven will not go off until we throw the breaker. Help please!
