I purchased a new Maytag gas range 4-30-99 and it has never worked correctly. The burners pop when turned on and off. There is a gas smell when it is on. The third time I cleaned the oven the door would not unlock. It took three weeks to get a repairman to fix it by putting in a new electronic control. After one year the inner oven glass broke and I had to pay for the repair. It was inside? Two pieces of glass and it was MY fault it broke! When the oven is on or the self-cleaning is on the upper stove and back splash on the wall are covered in black soot?? Now the oven won't come on when you turn it on for one hour to half a day. We have unhooked it and it will be junked!
I paid $745.48 for this range and today went to Sears and bought a new electric range so I can cook again! They used to have the best now they have the worst! The service is also terrible and I am tired of being cheated! I will do all I can to encourage others to stay away from Maytag products!
The electric range/self-clean oven was purchased in 2000. Three years later, during cleaning, it started beeping, the F1 code flashed and the cleaning action stopped. Since the warranty was up I decided to take a look inside the oven. I undid the two screws holding the temperature sensor in place and looked behind it. There was nothing there but the wire to the sensor so I reinstalled the sensor, tried the self-clean operation again and it went through the full cycle.
The range/oven has worked fine ever since, until about a month ago (Mar, 2006) at which time the same problem occurred. Once again I unscrewed the sensor and then screwed it back in place and the problem was fixed. It must be some kind of a grounding problem????
