The oven is heating up but cutting off when the temperture in the oven get to about half of what the set temperture is. You up the setting and the temp goes up but still only about half of the setting. I changed the oven temp probe and that did not change anything.

    What troubleshooting method is the proper way to check this problem

  • canehunter Aug 07, 2008

    Where is the thermostat located. The parts store does not have a thermostat listed.

    Is it part of the clock?

    The oven keeps heating and won't regulate the temp. I replaced the temp probe for the oven but it did not fix the problem. What's next?

Here are directions for replacing the thermostat with pictures. Please let me know if you need any more help. Make sure that you replace it exactly with the same one otherwise your temperature may be off with the new one.

    Since you know for sure that the temperature is off by quite a bit, all things point to the sensor. The sensors are only so accurate, they usually are within 25 degrees of the set temperature and not perfect. The sensor isn't too much and the first link I posted I believe also gave a website for where to purchase a new one

Have you checked the status of the thermostat? there is a possibility that it is the one causing the issue.

Usually, the constant beeping indicates a problem with a stuck key on the keypad or with the electronic control (clock) board. Sometimes, the beeps indicate an issue with the door closed/locked circuit. Maytag lists the F5 error as a watchdog circuit on the clock assembly control board detecting a problem with the range.

First, try unplugging the range for at least 30 minutes. You may want to check the wiring at the door latch.Also check for a stuck keypad. After that, the solution is to replace the electronic control board and send it off for repair. You may want to consider replacing the appliance. It is expensive and the oven of your range won't be available during the repair. The parts diagram is available at Sears Parts Direct, . The clock is part 14 on the Control Panel diagram and has a substituted RFR-CCS part number. This means that new replacement electronic controls are not available.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Maytag oven model cre9800ace with error code F3

Hi Janine.

F3 means "Shorted oven temperature sensor" and it is returned when the oven electronic control detects a wrong impedance value from the oven temperature sensor circuit.

The oven temperature sensor is a probe located inside the oven cavity. The sensor can be removed from the oven and tested using a multimeter set on impedance. The impedance reading across the two sensor's contacts at room temperature must be about 1100 Ohms. Impedance increment rate is 100 Ohms more for every 50 degrees temperature increase. If the reading is sensibly different from this value the sensor must be replaced.

Here the replacement part:
Long Oven Sensor Kit

The sensor is indicated as part number 11 in the exploded view available here.

The sensor is held by two screws. In order to replace the sensor disconnect power, disconnect the connector attached to the sensor, undo the two screws and remove the sensor. Perform operations in reverse order to install the new sensor.

Newhome 1000dfdl main fan oven appears to stay at the same temperture what ever the setting

whilst the fan is running the heating element which is usually in parallel with it should heat.. This usually means a faulty element whilst the temperature light remains on.
but if the temperture light is off then its likely to be a faulty thermostat

My oven is taking a really long time to warm up. it has been over half an hour and it is only at 180 degree

You may need to replace an heating element, it has 2 the top one (broil element) the bottom one (bake ele)
First try shuting off the breaker to the range for 45 min, this will reset to factory settings

Oven heats very slowly

If your top burners work ok, regulator should be ok. Majority of times the fail part in the oven is the ignitor...turn oven on and check for a flame after 10 mins. small flame could mean a bad safety valve.
