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.

Re: Maytag Range CRE9800ACE
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.

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.
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.
My experience on the direct spark ranges is that the gas valve is usually at fault for this problem. The regulator valve and the burner shutoff solenoids are all built together in one valve assembely. The valve will work properly until it gets hot then it will stick and not open when the oven calls for heat again.
Please post back with the complete model and serial numbers if you need further help in troubleshooting it. There have been many updates and design changes on these ranges.
This sound like you have a faulty thermostat module. The digital temperature display is giving you a false reading. Your best bet is to purchse an in oven thermometer that will give you a more exact reading until the thermostat is replaced. Good luck and happy cooking.
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
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
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.
