Comment:
Have had this two years and regret buying it because: 1) oven cleaning system is awful 2) Baking temperatures are so off that I have to use two oven thermometers to gauge approx temperature. This is a very poor product overall.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
The range was purchased as part of a Maytag rebate package (microwave/dishwasher/refrigerator)in April of 2013 but wasn't installed until the summer. Didn't use the oven much if at all. Started to notice the problem in the Fall. When a pork roast took an additional hour and a half from what it was supposed to take we purchased an oven thermometer. The stove top will say it is preheated to the proper temp, but the thermometer will say it is 100 to 200 degrees under. We have had a repair person out 3 times so far, the last time a new liner, clock and sensor were installed. Still not working correctly!!! Very unhappy! Seems that other folks are having problems of the same type as well. Warranty will end soon, so they better do something to make me happy.
