Question about Maytag MER5550 Electric Kitchen Range
The oven seems to heat up fine. After its been on for a while it displays a F2 fault and turns itself off.It can be turned back on but faults every couple of minutes. It's not over heating, a temperature guage placed in the oven shows it maintaining the setpoint. Thanks for any help.
5550 The error code ?F2? will be displayed along with a beeping sound if the ERC (Electronic Range Control) or ?clock? senses a runaway heat condition during the ?cook? or the ?clean? modes. It could be caused by the oven temperature sensor, by the ERC or by the wire harness between the oven temperature sensor and the ERC. If the error code ?F2? is displayed in the ?cook? or ?clean? modes only, then the problem is a bad oven temperature sensor or its wire harness. If the error code ?F2? is displayed in the time of the day mode also, then most likely a problem is the bad ERC. The access to the oven temperature sensor plug and the wires is from the back only. You have to pull the oven out of the wall (if it?s free standing) or remove it from the cabinet (if it?s built in). Disconnect the power and remove the rear cover. Check the resistance across the oven temperature sensor. It is supposed to be about 1100 Ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is incorrect, the oven temperature sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If not, check all the wires from the oven temperature sensor to the ERC. Replace all wire nuts if any. If it is not the sensor and wires, you have to replace the ERC. To get the right replacement part just click on the link http://tinyurl.com/34ujtl , then type the model number of your oven in the search box, click on the ?search? button and in the new window type the word ?sensor? or the word ?clock? in the ?search by keyword? box and click the ?search? button.
