When I connect my oven to the power line, all it does is show F7 on the screen and it wont turn on to bake. The oven is completely dead and every 3 minutes the timer goes off without any time been put on it. What should I do??
This problem just occured to me last nite. we had to shut the power off at the breaker box. we turned it back on this morning and it seems to be working fine. it is still a mystery as to what occured but it appears it had to reset itself. not sure if this is a solution, but it has appeared to be working so far.

F3 error code is telling you the oven temperature sensor has failed on the oven. You can access the oven sensor from inside the oven. The sensor is a stainless steel probe about 1/4 inch in diameter and several inches long. Disconnect the power to the oven and remove the screws that secure the probe to the rear oven wall and you can usually pull it into the oven.
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.
F7 error code occures due to A = Function pad button stuck or B = Bad clock Unstick button or Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
Replace the ERC there are ten screws 3 on each side and 4 on the control leave the hex screws alone all you need is a phillip screwdriver. REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF THE POWER FIRST lift and fold out the control panel remove the ribbon cable and remove the four screws that hold the control board . replace control panel in reverse order. Good Luck!! Thanks
I have shared this with over 1500 folks and most report success.
Please let me know. Also, what is your model number, how old is your oven and where are you located? I am making a study of this problem. You can email me at: [email protected]
On these older ovens ther is usually always 120 volts on the elements at all times.
If you check across the element ends with it in bake you should read 240V. If not, there is a problem with the control. With the voltage drop you describe, it sounds like you are losing power on one line of voltage coming to the element.
Post back to let me know what you find out or if you have any questions.
The control is automatically set to turn off the oven after 12 hours baking or 3 hours broiling should you forget and leave the oven on. If you want to remvoe this feature do the following steps:
1. Press and hold, at the same time, the BAKE and BROIL buttons for 3 seconds, until the display shows "SF".
2. Press the DELAY START TIME button. The display shows "12Shdn" for 12 hour shut off.
Press the DELAY START TIME button again. The display will show "no Shdn" for no shut off.
3. Press the START button.
