Maytag model number CRE9500ACE.  Wife noticed that her pies are taking too long to cook.  I read through some info and checked the resistance of the temp probe at various temps (I used a toaster oven and a stand alone oven thermometer for my test)

70 - 1056, 150-1200, 175-1365, 200-1417, 250-1532, 300-1620, 350-1745, 400-1780.

The numbers were a little different as the temp cooled back down.  While a little different from the resistance chart I found on this site I don't know if what I'm seeing is enough to cause my problem.

I haven't compared the oven temp yet with the stand alone thermometer but I can do that when I put the probe back in .

I hope it isn't the ERC!! Those aren't cheap!

Thanks in advance for any help.

Well, I put it back together and set it for 350 degrees and put my thermometer in.  The control started at 150 degrees and continued to move higher until it reached 350 in about 3-5 minutes. Meanwhile the thermometer inisde only read 200 degrees. If I move the temp up, to say 400, the control imedialty says 400 and doesn't show the actual oven temp.  I left it set at 350 for 15 minutes and the temp never got any higher than 225.[url=javascript:emoticon(':X', 'images/emoticons/mad.gif')][/url]

No fault codes (if this unit even has them) are displayed. 

I bought this unit new about 10 years ago. Is it worth fixing?

I need to get this fixed so the wife can fix some pie!

Seems like this goes back to the temp sensor or a bad connection at the molex plug..the sensor is not reading the temp correctly....perhaps someone else will have another suggestion.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The wiring all looks great including the connector going to the temp sensor.  I guess I can try changing that.  I was just hoping to find a test that would nail it down for sure.

Here is a chart listing the values for the sensor, let us compare these to yours first.

At room temp (70) I read 1056 ohms

At 200 I read 1417 (67 ohms above what the chart says)

At 300 I read 1620 (67 ohms above)

At 400 I read 1780 (27 phms above)

Looks sort of flakey to me, however if you replace the sensor connect the new one with ceramic wire nuts, the plugs can cause problems...

Well, swaped out the temp sensor and no change.  Control panel indicates the temp is 350 but the thermometer indactes 225.

I don't know what other part may cause this except maybe the control unit?  I don't see any other devices in the service diagram that may be the cause.  The heating element glows nice and even as it heats up, can that be the cause?

I don't know if the electronic control is the problem or not but a new one cost $248.  My guess is that it's about half of what a new stove would cost?  The appliance half life table indicates about a 17-18 years for a slide in stove.  If I remember right, I bought this one about 10 years ago.

I appreciate everyone's advice.

To me it sounds like the ERC, My oven was doing that to . I sent mine out to stove clock repair to get it repaired 2 1/2 yrs. ago .The cost was $120.00 .

the erc is bad, you've already replaced sensor, if the rest of the stove looks good why replace it?

True, the stove isn't in too bad of shape cosmetically but we are looking at some major kitchen work in the future and a new stove may be in the picture anyway.

It just seemed hard to justify $250 for a new ERC when I can get the whole stove for $500, if not less, for a similar Maytag model.
