Just fixed my Maytag MER6772BAS my lower oven element was not working & buying a replacement element did not fix it, I found the problem in the control panel circuit board. The relay for the lower element had a bad solder connection to the board ( the yellow wire relay ) re-soldered connection & problem fixed. Check everything before shelling out hundreds on replacement parts. I had to take the control panel apart to fix this issue be carefulll not to force any of the connections, do not disconnect any of the tape wire harnesses. REMEMBER DISCONNECT THE POWER 220 VOLTS WILL HURT. ALOT.

Hi dmiller58,

This is how I solved my problem. First make sure that the upper oven works correctly, Both on bake and broil. Check to make sure that the oven heats up to desired temperature. I did those tests on my upper oven and found that the upper oven worked correctly I then rewired the lower oven in the following manner:

1) Reroute the wires leading to the upper broiler element, to the lower broiler element. Reroute from before the broiler high-limit switch. Needs an extra piece of wire which I scavenged from an old range at the local landfill. The wire has to be at least AWG 16 (I used AWG 14) and have a rating of 600V and 150˚ C. Make sure where the extra piece is joined is well insulated.
2) Reroute the wires leading to the upper bake element, to the lower bake element.
3) Swap the heat sensor wires between the upper oven and the lower oven. It is a simple plastic connector.
4) When I want to bake in the lower oven I press BAKE for the upper oven on the front panel.

Trust me, it works. (My wife made a roast and several cakes)

I went a step further and connected the wires that used to go to the lower broil, to the upper bake element. When I want to bake in the upper oven I press BROIL for the lower oven on the front panel. Make sure you set the desired temperature manually. Do not use AUTO SET.

The downside is that I cannot broil in the upper oven. A small price to pay for having a fully functional lower oven. The other alternative is probably a replacement for the clock/controller. (Cost of parts for that is $200-$300 pus labor $???)

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?

If it's an electric oven, then it may be a baking element gone bad. When mine went bad the rest of the oven worked but not the bottom oven baking section. Mine made popping noises and sparks when it went out. Look for a break or burnt spot in the heating coil in the bottom of your oven. I replaced mine for about $50

Wont heat past 200 degres


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Oven doesn't work after replacing the bottom (baking) element


Will the clock control accept the bake and temperature request?
If so,
You will need to remove the rear panel of the range and test the bake element leads for 220 volts when the oven control is set to bake and is turned on.

Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.

Call avantiproducts.com sales (service didn't work) and get a replacement bake element. It was about $35 including shipping. Download the manual from the site and study the structure. Uncover the back cover using standard phillips screw. TO DO THIS, SHUT DOWN YOUR HOME BREAKER AND MAKE SURE THE OVEN OPERATION LUMP DOES NOT LIGHT. OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE EXPOSED TO HIGH VOLTAGE. Additionaly use multimeter to make sure the voltage is not there. Remove back inner cover. You can't remove this inner cover completely because of the thermostat line but try to make a work space in the lower part of the oven. The bottom element cover can be uncovered readily without any screw or pin. At this point you have access to baking element from the bottom of the oven. Loosen two nuts to remove the bad element. Reverse the procedure to install the new element.
