Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

We have had this 1996 Maytag oven and NEVER used the self cleaning apparatus. Alway cleaned by hand. This New Years, we deciced to use the self cleaning technique and low and hehold, we cannot open our oven door. It feels like the latch is stuck, and we cannot get to it. We were told by the Lowe's guy to shut off the braker switch (since it is an electric stove and oven), so we did, and it didn't. So, help out there...how do we get our oven door to open? I said abbra ka drabbra, open saysa me...it still wouldn't open. Help!!!!!!! (We did let it cool off before we tried to open it. That was a hint....

When you shut the breaker off make sure it stays off for over an hour. If that does not do the trick you will need to replace the erc (electronic range control) and for a 96 model your looking at 300 and up to fix.

Lost manual for self cleaninf Maytag oven. It's about 8-10 years old.


My answer is to NOT use that feature, as generally after most people use that :Feature" straight after the oven faults, you see that "Cleaning" mode simply heats the oven up wayyy up to like 900 degrees up, and after this the temperature sensors generally "Go" so my advice is ... use elbow grease and save a lot of possible problems, especially with a 8 - 10 yo unit.

Since we bought our Maytag Gemini 9 years ago, every time I use the oven cleaning function, I get an f9-4 error and cannot clean my oven. Is there anything I can do to bypass this? Its just too expensive...


Oven Cleaner can be used instead of letting the ovens "Self Clean". This error report you are getting could be a couple of things, 1 the oven latching mechanism may have gone on the blink (this is the part that locks the door during the cleaning process to prevent any opening of the door during cleaning) 2 it could be that the oven will not reach the self cleaning temp. any longer (this temp is much higher than the hi broil) Good Luck

I have an electric Maytag stove/oven but don't know how to use the self cleaning feature. What do I do?


Dear cooper1914,

There are two types of Ovens that clean themselves.
1) A Self-Cleaning Oven which usually gets locked 1st then set on Self-Clean.
2) A Continuous-Cleaning Oven which is constantly cleaning

Some people prefer the old fashion clean by hand with degreasers but I prefer Self-Clean or Continuous-Clean as there is no need for harsh potent cleaners!

If you have a Self-Cleaning or Continuous-Clean Oven Do Not Clean With Cleaners as it will ruin the flavor of your oven!

How to remove the control panel on Whirlpool double oven Model RBD305PDS14


Remove the doors by turning toward you a little toggle apparatus located on each hinge. Locate a small screw on the lower inside edge of the left and right hand trim and then slide off the trim. Remove the lower trim then raise the upper trip and put the left end of the panel inside the top opening. This allows you access to the control panel. Test both the keypad part #8300440 and the control panel part #830219 to see which one needs to be replaced. Order the replacement part, plug it in, reverse the precess above and it should work like new..

Self cleaning caused interior glass to crack


hi there,

this is called thermal breakage. basically, when the mfg. makes the glass, they either don't cook it long enough or let it harden long enough during manufacturing. remember, the glass is supposed to withstand over 1200 degrees, which is temperature during self cleaning. have a technician replace the door glass, as warranty should cover this.

thanks

Stove cleaning


The filter in the jenn air can be run through the dishwasher. clean the outside of the oven as best as you can before you start the self clean cycle. NEVER!!! use oven cleaner inside a self cleaning oven. or on the gasket. . You can use a degreaser or oven cleaner on the cooktop on any stainless steel, procelain or chrome surface. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum surfaces. Rinse off very well.
