Bake element doesnt work everything else does

Hello, The bake setting stopped working the other day. I opened oven to see that bake element was melted mostly on right (if looking into oven) 2/3 of unit. I replaced with new element. It still is not working. I measured resistance of new element; it is 16.8 ohms. I opened up the back of oven to expose wiring, everything looks good; no burned wires, no wires appear disconnected. We are having relatives over this weekend so I am in big trouble with the wife if I dont get it fixed. Any help is super appreciated. I have the same problem. Maytag Gemini (Model MER6770ACW). Lower bake element burnt out (literally blew up). Replaced it with new element. There is no electricity going to the element when oven is turned on.

New element testing is OK, check the control knob for the bake element, if element is fine you usually need to replace the control.

Q - My microwave seems to shut off every once in a while, what might be wrong?
A - Make sure you hear the fan is still operating in your microwave. Next is to make sure the air intake grill on your microwave is not plugged up with air borne dust and dirt.
Bake element doesnt work everything else does - nuker100.jpg Use an old tooth brush to help clean off the grille area.

Q - The microwave makes a loud "hum or buzz" noise but will not heat up the food?
A - 9 times out of 10 this is usually this is a bad magnetron, the other time is sometimes a bad high voltage diode. See components section.


Q - My microwave is running and sounds like it is working but will not heat up anything.
A - Many thing can do this but, common things are....loose high voltage wire.....poor solder joint on board.....magnetron.....power relay.....

Q - The microwave display counts down and the inside light is on, but nothing is heating and the fan is not running.
A - This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.


Q - My microwave went dead when I opened the door ( same problem as closed the door ).
A - This often is a stuck or faulty door switch and it has blown the interior microwave fuse.


Q - My microwave is completely dead.
A - House fuse has blown or interior fuse inside the microwave has blown ( usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow ) Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well.


Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.


Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.

Q - I burnt something in my microwave and now it is dead...help!
A - The fuse inside the microwave may have blown, but more commonly the flame/oven thermostat has sensed the over cooked food and the flame/oven/cavity thermostat has opened up - Info on that

If you disconnect the terminals to the element put your multimeter on the two terminals and turn the oven to bake. You should have current at them. If not check the thermostat to ensure it is good, if so you have a bad oven switch.
Hope this keeps you out of hot water.

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced


Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

The oven preheats, but then "cools down" before I


Most likely the problem is your bake element. When the oven is preheating it uses both the bake and the broil element. When it's done preheating it uses only the bake element, so the broil element is heating it up, and since the bake element is not working the temperature drops until it starts preheating again.

My oven won't work on bake but everything else is operational


Most likely have a bad heating element. Check for continuity in the element. Make sure to trip the breaker or unplug the unit before removing the element. 120 volts still run through the element even though it is not turned on. Takes 240 volts to make it glow red.

The time when baking will stop, will appear in the display window. The words "BAKE STOP TIME" will glow in the display. 7. Push and hold up or down arrows until the time that you want cooking to be completed appears in the display. 8. Push Bake (or Conv).

Bottom Baking element not working


dmiller58
If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?

Control unit is probably the problem, You should check your Breaker to make sure it didnt trip outside of that you can check voltage to the element with the oven set to bake, if you dont have votage to element then it would most likely be the board. I just checked the wiring diagram for this unit and there is an over limit switch which is a long shot but worth checking. My bet is on the board. There are 2 listings for the part number so if you check on parts make sure you have full model # serial # AND series #(should be a 2 digit number like 10 or something)
