Maytag Oven Error Codes

Maytag Oven Error Code F1-2

If your Maytag double range oven is displaying the error code F1-2, it’s indicating a Temperature Error on the lower range. This specific error occurs when the temperature in the lower range becomes excessively high for the electric range control to handle. Understanding the nuances of this error is crucial for efficient troubleshooting and resolution.

Probable Cause: Temperature Sensor Issue

The F1-2 error code is commonly associated with a malfunction in the temperature sensor. The temperature sensor plays a pivotal role in gauging the oven’s internal temperature and communicating it to the electric range control. When the sensor malfunctions, it can provide inaccurate readings, leading to the oven becoming too hot and triggering the F1-2 error.

Diagnostic Steps:

  1. Check for Visible Damage: Inspect the temperature sensor for any visible signs of damage, such as frayed wires or corrosion. If any issues are detected, replacement may be necessary.
  2. Resistance Testing: Use a multimeter to measure the resistance of the temperature sensor. Compare the reading with the manufacturer’s specifications. A significant deviation indicates a faulty sensor.
  3. Sensor Calibration: Some ovens allow for sensor calibration. Refer to your Maytag oven manual to see if calibration is possible. This may resolve minor inaccuracies in temperature readings.

Resolution: Repair or Replace the Temperature Sensor

To address the F1-2 error code, it is recommended to either repair or replace the faulty temperature sensor. While minor issues might be resolved through sensor calibration, more significant problems may require sensor replacement for optimal performance.
