A spokesman for Whirlpool, which owns Maytag, told the CBS affiliate in New York City that the company had just become aware of Melnikov's problem and was checking out the issue.
Maytag is no longer Maytag. This oven may be a Whirlpool underneath with a Maytag sticker on it; so if you own Whirlpool it may have the same electronics and react to your PDA in the same manner. It will be interesting to see if Whirlpool has the same problem.
I have a Logitech Harmony Remote Control programmed to operate my Vizio HDTV. My wife sometimes gets upset sometimes when I press the ON button on the remote because it sleeps her MacBook.
I have a 19" Philips HDTV in my kitchen that occasionally would turn itself on for some unknown reason. I simply moved the television's remote control farther away from the television and that seems to have resolved the problem.
