I have a Maytag CHG9800BAE Gas Range
The oven temperature isn't calibrated properly, so when I set it at 350 it will actually reach about 275 (using an accurate internal thermometer) when the pre-heat beep sounds. After 20 min. or so will inch up to as high as 300. I have tested the sensor and it appears to be in good shape and ohms at 1090 so it is working well. Will replacing the control board/clock assy fix the problem? other suggestions?
Answer Hello Scott,
What you will want to do is to preheat oven for at least 15 minutes. Once 15 minutes has passed allow the unit to cycle at least 3 times. Once it has cycled 3 times then you will want to have access to the control board. Pull the wires for the sensor from control and check the resistance. The Resistance at 350 degrees should be 1650 ohms plus or minus 10 percent. If the sensor reads good then the unit is working properly.
Can you tell me how to remove the front panel on my maytag range to replace the clock assembly? I beleave it's something in the clock because the light is very dim.
Answer Don, to access the control you'll need to raise or remove the cooktop and manifold cover. Here's some help : Unplug the power cord or remove power to the unit,You may want to turn off the gas supply as well. Remove the oven door, remove the grates from the cooktop. Remove the surface burners(turn 90 dgrs. counterclockwise and lift up and out) disconnect and label each wire to each burner and remove and set the burners aside. Remove the four small phillips head screws under the burners that hold the orifice bracket to the underside of the cooktop. Remove the valve knobs from the valve stems(pull the knob straight out). Using a flat blade tool or putty knife, find and release the hold down clips (4 to 5 inches in from the corner) insert the tool in the seam between the msnifold cover and cooktop and press in on the clip, and lift up on the corner of the cooktop and raise the top, you can now prop the top up with a rod, or remove it from the unit. Remove the two screws securing the top of the manifold cover to the frame, and the four screws securing the bottom of the panel to the oven support frame. Grasp panel and pull straight forward slowly and carefully. Roll the panel over and remove the screws that mount the control to the support brackets and remove the control from the panel. Disconnect and label the wires. Reverse the procedure to reinstall the removed parts. Reapply power and gas to the unit and test for operation. Thanks and Good Luck
Thank you for answering my question in such detail. In order to access the screws on top, I will have to lift the main top. Concerning the gas lines that feed the burners, will I have any problems lifting the top up to get to the screws? Thanks in advanced for your help. Vern
Answer Hello Vern,
The sealed burners will remove easily by turning about 1/4 turn, (if I remember correctly counterclockwise). If they are difficult to turn, you can use a belt to wrap around the burner and run a screwdriver or similar tool in the buckle to use as a leverage handle. This will give plenty of leverage while protecting the burners. Do not bend your gas lines! definitely remove the burners to access the panel screws.
How do you replace the clock assembly for a Magic Chef gas range 6498XVB?
Answer Hello Vern,
There should be 3 or 4 screws under the control panel above the door. After the power has been turned off to the unit, open the door and remove these screws. There may be a couple of screws on the end and possibly across the top. The main top may need to be raised to access these top screws. Once the screws across the top have been removed the control panel will drop forward and you can access the control board. Four screws hold it in place. Always change the wires one at a time, removing from the old control and onto the new control one at a time to avoid having wires crossed. Assembly will be the reverse of this procedure.
If you have sealed burners, be sure to place them on the counter in sequence as different BTU burners will not work properly in the wrong position. Wearing gloves is always advisable to protect you from injury.
Would I need to replace part 12001617 timer assembly or part 702104 Relay control board, if you can not change the temperture on the front of the stove higher than 350 deg.? Is the relay control board part of part number 12001617 or two different parts like I listed above?
Answer Hi Bob. They do work in conjunction with one another. If the key pad will not accept the command to change temperature, then yes the clock control part # 12001617 will need changed. If you can raise the temperature in number sequence, the relay board will cycle the power on/off to the correct element by what the oven sensor tells it to. If the oven sensor is bad it should give a F-3 code. It will ohm out between 1060-1100 ohms. Relay board part # 74001870. Sensor is part # 12001655. Thank You.
Is the part available in BLACK?
Answer Hello Bob! It seems that the clock assembly 12001617 comes with the black overlay for installation. Thanks!
