Maytag Gemini
« on: July 24, 2009, 11:09:17 AM »
This morning my Magtag Gemini top oven started sparking from the back of the heating element. It eventually burned half the heating element away before I put it out with a fire extinguisher.

Is this something that can be fixed or should we just look at getting a new unit all together. The error code that it finally gave was F1-1 which I looked up and said check oven temp and sensor and replace if necessary. I'm sure that was going off b/c it was so hot in there from the fire.

Any thoughts?

What is the model number of your oven?

I think on the Gemini if you run your hand along the top of the control counsel you will feel a small little metal bracket on the back that you will be able to flip up to view the model number.

You will have to replace the heating element and the temp sensor. They are much less than the cost of a new unit.
