Maytag Gemini Electric stove fault code F 1-2 when using the oven(s)
The oven temp sensor has gone bad. F1-2 would be for the lower oven and F1-1 would mean the upper oven. If you give me the model # from the sticker on the oven I can direct you to a diagram, part #, and price. These are very easy to replace. Should be located inside the oven in the upper right or left hand side. It looks like a silver rod about 4-8 inches long and crimped on the end. Most of them can be removed from inside the oven by removing the two screws, pull out the sensor (harness and all) plug in the new sensor, put the screws back in and your done. Some have to be removed from the back of the oven by removing the lower, larger back panel and follow the same process as mentioned above. Hope this helps.

5Ab error code for a Maytag Electric Range
You may have inadvertently set your range to "Sabbath Mode". The display actually reads "SAB". This is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.
To turn the Sabbath Mode on/off on most Maytag models you simply press and hold the "Clock" button for 5 seconds. These instructions should be in your owner's manual.
If this does not correct the problem for you, please post back with your model number (located on the back of the range or around the oven door opening) so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this helps you.

Plastic / maybe electrical smell
Personally, I do not cook indoors with gas (outdoor, yes), but any time you have an issue with gas cooking ranges....you need to call a professional. We are connected to Centerpoint Energy and so I would call them. this could be a very serious gas leak issue. You don't say if you are on a propane conversion type, or utility supplied gas. that smell could be your only clue to something not good. Did your smoke alarm or CO detector go off? You could call your local gas company to ask the questions, if there is a warranty for your range, call that store.
You don't say the age of the range. That comes into play as making suggestions. Please error on the side of safety. Get a professional to deal with this.
