Maytag aqualift range is not getting very hot
your Maytag range has only a single heating element located at the top of the oven, it is likely a "broil" element, which is used primarily for cooking food close to the top of the oven. The lower heating element, which is typically used for baking and roasting, may be hidden beneath the oven floor or located at the bottom of the oven.
If your oven is not getting very hot, it is possible that the broil element is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. However, if the oven is not heating evenly or is not getting hot enough to cook food properly, it may be a more complex issue related to the temperature sensor, the control board, or other components.
To diagnose and repair the issue, it is recommended to have the range serviced by a qualified technician, who can properly identify the model and locate the faulty component. The model number of your range can typically be found on a label inside the oven door, on the back of the range, or on a storage drawer beneath the oven.
Have a Blodgett gas, double oven, top unit starts up and then shuts back down. Bottom unit will do so in about 5 min. Whats wrong. We have not tried anythng yet.
We have an older model EV-111 which initially will get up to 450, but when trays of Frozen Fries are loaded in to it, it can't climp back up over 350 degrees, even after 20 minutes. Disconnected Power, removed wires from each of the three elements, Measured them each at ~12 Ohms and measured each power lead to be 122 VAC to Gnd. Can an element be bad and still read 12 Ohms? Any details available on how to actually remove the elements? What panels need to be opened up to get at them? This Oven has performed very well for years. Thermostat seems ok because it can be set to any temperature. Red light indicates heaters are on, then shuts off when temp is achieved. Oven maintains temp when empty and doors are shut. Thank you!!
