Hi.

The problem is likely a defective temperature probe, first check the following.

Try disconnecting power for two minutes, disconnect power cord or trip the circuit breaker. That will reset the electronics.

Check if the problem happens with both broiling and baking. If the problem is only with one of the two functions, then one of the elements (electric oven), or a valve coil or igniter (gas oven) may be faulty and causing the problem.

If the problem occurs with both baking and broiling, then it is usually the sensor probe. The temperature sensor is located inside the oven cavity, and held by one or two screws. The sensor can be tested reading Ohms at its terminal with a multimeter. A bad sensor is often open at room temp (it reads infinite Ohms). A good sensor will read about 1KOhms at room.

Here you find parts and diagrams for most units. Enter the full model number as printed in the service tag.

Regards.

Ginko.

My Maytag Performa oven and stove top will not turn on (heat up)


When I turn on my Maytag performa using the "bake" function, everything looks ok on the display, however the temp. never rises above 100. I've tried "bake" and "convect", and neither one work. "Clean" doesn't work either. The oven will lock, and display shows that it's heating up, but temp. never rises.
However....."broil" feature works just fine.
Please help.

Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,


This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

Bake and Broil not working


After you hit the function you want...bake or broil...click the up arrow.  That should give you the default temp of 350 and the unit should light.  Now adjust to the temp you want.

hi there,

if it's just the stove, it's not the control board because the rest of your stove work. if it's just the oven, it most likely the thermostat, blower or the heat probe. go to www.reliableparts.com to get parts for it.
