Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range
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.
You can find replacements and free schematics here.

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.
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.

Hello kimberlymaso - If you are referring to the bake element, but the broil element works then you would need to just replace the bake element. If both your bake and broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring communication. However, if the oven does not bake and/or broil but the cook top works; contact a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control).
