A Maytag gas range displays a fault code when certain components malfunction. These codes appear in the range's electronic display and may be different between Maytag models. The meaning for each code is found in the product literature that comes with the range and at online sites such as appliancerepair.net.
Fault codes can help accurately diagnose the reason for the malfunction. Giving the code to a technician before a service call helps the tech obtain the proper parts so that a repair can be completed the first time. Many appliance repairs should be done by a certified Maytag technician, particularly in the first 12 months when the range is still under warranty.
