I have a Maytag Model MEW5530AAB gas range. I have a message

Resolved Question:

I have a Maytag Model MEW5530AAB gas range. I have a message that says off and I cannot turn on the oven. Also when I try the self cleaning the latch will only stay latched for a minute then opens again and will not clean the oven.

hte "off" means that your unit is in control lock mode. Press and hold the lock button for 5 seconds to unlock the controls. If that doesn't work then you need to replace your control board.

As for the self cleaning, when it locks and then unlocks right away, it means that the latch switch isn't sensing correctly so it doesn't sense the "closed" position. You will definitely need to replace your latch assembly to correct this issue.
