We have a Maytag double oven. The lower oven latch will not unlatch under any circumstances. I've read all the questions and answers.
How do I access this lower latch? Pull off the front Cover? Is it the same part numbers as the upper oven?
Answer Hello Ken,
The door lock motor is mounted on the rear of this unit. You will need to pull the unit out and unplug it and remove the rear panel to access the door lock assembly. You will then remove the motor from the linkage and operate it to unlock the door. From this point, the door lock assembly 74007429 should be replaced. To do this, you will need to remove the cooktop and the right, (as you face the appliance from the front) bodyside. The upper and lower door lock assemblies are the same.
Upper and lower oven will not heat when used in bake mode. Checked for voltage coming from control board and it registers 0. Do I need to replace the oven control board?
If you check at the control board and get a 0 reading then it sounds like you are loosing power to the control board. You will want to trace your wires back to make sure that there are no thermostats that could be faulty and check to make sure that there are no loose or broken wires. If all checks ok then you will want to replace the control board.
i have tested the wiring for lower element on oven and check out element and checked thermostat most likely control board
I see that Whirlpool has replacement board w10166967 for the maytag #7400992 is this a exact match or should i order the overlay also will all the connectors be the same?
Answer John, Yes, the ERC / Clock should be a straight across trade out. Just make sure you label the wires as you remove them from the original ERC. It'll be a lot easier in long run. As for the "overlay, you would probably want to have one handy. Quite often they have a tendency to wrinkle and crease when being removed from the original ERC, Unless you're very careful. It doesn't present a very pretty picture when the job is completed.
I have amaytag gemini electric double oven range. The control panel works. All elements, including the upper and lower ovens, and the surface burners, do not work. Nothing works except the control panel. I reset the circuit breaker, and not thing happens. Is the control board bad?
Since only the control panel is working you will want to check at your terminal block for 240 vac across the outside 2 posts. If there is not 240 vac then check from each of the outer post to the center post for 120 vac. Which ever side does not have 120 vac is the side you are losing voltage on. You will then want to check the power outlet for 240 vac. If there is power then you have a bad power cord and would need to be replaced. If you do not have 240 vac then you have a home wiring issue or the breaker is faulty.
Control board shows lock and there is no way to turn oven on or test the board ,it just beeps at you.
You will want to check your door latch to see if the latch switch is good. If the door is locked then you can try to disconnect power for 30 minutes and then back on to see if it will reset. If the door is not locked and there is no issue with switches on the latch, then the control would need to be replaced.
The primary cooktop element of the 4 cooktop elements does not function properly. It cycles on and off, and generally will only heat up by running on high. Is there a controller / regulator for this heating element and how do you replace it?
Answer Hello Eric,
The element itself would have to be replaced as it is the limiter that has failed causing the element to continuously cycle. To replace you would open oven door and take out 1 screw on either side, Lift up on top and slide forward. Disconnect harness connector at the back and turn cooktop over. When replacing element pay attention to which numbers the clips are attached to so that when you put it back on they will be in the same position.
