Bryan, The control pad on my Maytag Gemini range (double oven)

This answer was rated:

The control pad on my Maytag Gemini range (double oven) is only displaying the bar for the lower oven and the time(after some button was inadvertently pushed. How can I reset the factory defaults
Hello, Give me a few minutes to pull up your model. thanks .Be right back.
okay lets try a few things, first lets see if the control is locked out.

Control Lockout:

The control can be Locked

Out by pressing Setup and then 4. When

locked "Control Locked" will be displayed and

scroll twice. Press Auto Set to toggle

between Locked and Unlocked. The control

lockout will not lock out the timer, clock,

setup options or oven light


next if that doesn't work see if this is in demo mode.


Demo Mode:

The control can be placed in a


sales demo mode by pressing Bake and Cancel


keys for 3 seconds. The demo mode can be


exited by pressing any key. This mode will


activate the display as if the unit is operating


without energizing the heating elements


let me know if either of them do anything.

Control Lockout - I pushed Setup (#9)then 4 - no "Control lockout was displayed. Which is the scroll key #5

I then tried the Demo mode but after hitting Control & BAK for 3 seconds - the display dis not change

okay that's probably not good. I have the tech sheets let me go over them some more.

While I'm doing that have you tried unplugging this for 5 minutes then plugging it back in to see if it resets ?

Okay I'm back and have gone through the entire tech manual. if unplugging this didn't reset the clock then we have one more thing to try. we need to see if this will go into test mode.



Test Mode:

Accessed by holding Cancel and


Broil keys down for 3 seconds within 5


minutes of power up. The test mode cannot


be accessed if the oven temperature is above


400ºF. When test mode is activated all digits


will display "-". To exit the test mode press


Cancel or auto exit occurs 16 seconds after


last key pressed.

Earlier I did reset the circuit breakers - I will try unplugging & leaving off for 5 minutes now before trying the Test mode option

okay if that doesn't work unfortunately theres no other reset for this. it means the control has failed. I have combed through the whole tech manual. I did find an 18 error which says the control has failed. let me know if this goes into test mode.

The unplugging & leaving off for 5 minutes worked. The control pad is back to normal DISPLAYS, SOUNDS and I can set temperaturesl & timers

So this is done & thank-you
