Trying to set delayed start on both ovens of a Maytag Gemini.

Customer Question

Trying to set delayed start on both ovens of a Maytag Gemini. We seem to be following manual step by step (page 9), but its not working.

Steps 1. and 2. in the first column seem to indicate we should set the COOK TIME and temperatures for both ovens before setting the STOP TIMES for both ovens. Please review and tell us what we are doing wrong:
1. Press COOK TIME; enter :20 for 20 minutes.
2. Press BAKE on the Upper Oven; enter 350.
3. Press COOK TIME; enter 2:00 for 2 hours.
4. Press BAKE on the Lower Oven; enter 325.
5. Press STOP TIME; press STOP TIME again so it is flashing; enter 12:20 (time of day).
6. Press STOP TIME; press STOP TIME again so it is flashing; enter 12:15.

AT THIS POINT, THE TIME OF DAY ALREADY SET FOR THE UPPER OVEN CHANGES TO 12:15. WE CANNOT GET THE STOP TIME FOR THE BOTTOM OVEN TO SET.

Can you help us? Thanks.

This oven doesnt have a delay start mode.

This oven DOES have a delay start. We used it on the upper oven. We just could not get it to accept our input for both ovens at once, even though page 9 of the manual says it can be done.
We do not accept your answer and do not wish to go further.
Thanks anyway.
