When I hit the "cancel" button the beeping stops. Yesterday it stayed off for 15 hours and just started again while I was sleeping. If I can unplug it and then plug it in will it reset itself. I will have to put towels on top of the stove and sit on those and try and reach down behind it. I tried this already but the plug is in there very tightly. I can try again but then I will not be able to cook anything. I can't pull it away from the wall as when they installed it they bent the rear right leg and it will break. ( When I bake a cake it is cockeyed, and when I took the drawer out of the bottom I could see the bent leg.) Is it safe to leave the house to go to the grocery store and leave my puppies in the house? Will they be all right if the beeping starts? It won't start a fire or anything will it? Won't the beep burn out or just stop eventually? All of the buttons on the keypad work. I pressed them all and they all worked appropriately - when I pressed the clock button the clock was ready to be set and when I pressed it again the clock worked. I pressed the timer button and the numbers went to 00:00 for me to set the time and when I pressed cancel the current time came back up. I cannot afford a new stove right now as I lost my job as a teacher. There must be some way I can fix this. If I unplug it can I use the burners by lighting them with a match? I am 2 rooms away with the doors closed and the beeping is aggravating. If I can still use the stove with a match I will get a wooden cane I have and try and pull out the plug. The gas line will still be connected though. Thank You so very much. It is almost 5am and I have not slept yet because of this. Thank you. Susan
Is it safe to leave the house? It won't start a fire and hurt my puppies will it?
Another person on the Maytag site said that when he got an "F-1" he unplugged it and then when he plugged it back in it never happened again. I also called around and it seems that parts are scarce for a 20 year old appliance. Should I just get a new one instead of trying to get someone to fix this one?
Thank You .
