CONTROL PANEL MEW6530BAW Maytag Electric wall oven


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the oven.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag Wall Oven model number MEW6530BAW.

I see you have an F9 error code and not doing anything so let me see what the service manual states on the F9.
The service manual states that each error code is 4 digis long. It states also ending in 9 that it has to do with the door lock.

Special conditions for  latch codes:

1.  A known good unlock position is defined as when the unlock switch reads closed and lock switch reads open.

2.  A known good lock position is defined as when the unlock switch reads open and lock switch reads closed.

3.  A faulted switch means the switch input is reading an invalid state, neither open or closed.

4.  Once a latch fault occurs, latch movement is disabled until there is a POR.  An error tone will sound if a function requiring a faulted latch is attempted.

5.  If at POR, The latch is not a know good unlock position:

-> If the latch is at a good lock position, it will attempt to unlock when the RTD (resistance temprature Device) temperature is below 400 degree F.

->  If the latch is not a good lock position will fault.

6.  If a latch fault occurs while the RTD is above the lock temperature, the latch will not try to move, but the fault is still logged to EEPROM after the first stage of detection).

7.  The display column for latch faultes applies A)  If the latch was moving when the fault occured; B)  If the latch is already in a known locked state when the fault occurs.

->  LOCK flashes after a fault is detected and until the unlocked position is achieved.  The unlock position may be identified by a successful unlock switch closure, or as the result of timing when the unlock switch is not functioning properly.

8.  If the last known good positon was unlock (e.g. baking, or idle) and a latch fault occurs, the motor is never moved.  The fault is logged to EEPROM and is not seen by the user.

9.  The detection for latch faults is in two stages.  The first stage is to let the control recover without moving the latch.  After this:

->  If the latch was previously at a known good unlock position, the latch will not move and the control will fault.

->  If the control was previously in a known good lock position.

->  If the RTD is below 400 degree F, the latch will attempt to recover to it's proper position (up to three
revolutions).  If it cannot, the control will fault and the latch will move to a calculated unlock position.

->  If the RTD is at or above 400 degrees F, the control will fault.  When the RTD cools to below 400 F, the control will attempt to recover to a good unlock position (up to 3 revolutions).  If it cannot, the control will fault and the latch will move to a calculated unlock position.

NOTE:  If the unlock position cannot be found, this may result in a 2nd fault, the first fault occuring when the latch request was unlocked, and the second when the latch request is unlocked.

->  If the latch is moving when the fault occurs, the control will bypass the first stage of detection and immediately try to find its proper position.  If it cannot, the control will fault and the latch will move to a calculated unlock position.

10.  Affected DLBs (double line breaks) and loads are disabled during detection.

11.  If the control is in a known good unlock position and the lock switch becomes faulted:
 ->  The control will not fault.

->  If a function requiring latch movement is attempted while the lock switch is faulted, the control will sound an error tone and the function will be disabled.

12.  If the control is in a known good lock position and the unlock switch becomes faulted:

->  The control will not fault

->  After the function is canceled and unlock is attempted, the control will attempt to unlock the latch according to the procedures in these notes.

Why does our Maytag range model MEW6530BAW just beep and display the F1 code after using the automatic clean cycle?


There is limited technical information available for this Maytag oven regarding error codes. The F1 normally indicates a problem with the touch pad assembly or the electronic control board on this type of Maytag oven. The touch pad is the component that most often causes this failure. A technician will normally shut off the breaker and then access the control board assembly. The touch pad assembly would be unplugged and the ribbon wire would be positioned so that it is out of the way. The oven would be reassembled and powered up. If the F1 reappears after the range is powered back up then the electronic control board will need to be replaced. If the F1 does not reappear then the touch pad will need to be replaced.

A technician will normally need to perform this repair since it involves a built-in oven. Parts for Maytag oven must be ordered according to the serial number. For these reasons, I recommend that you set up service for a Sears technician to visit your home and repair this problem. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
