Question about Maytag MER6769 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
I have a Maytag Gemini stand alone double oven MER6549BAW oven. Recently out of the blue, it started beeping as well as turning on -- the upper oven would set itself to Bake, 350 degrees. Thank Goodness I was home to discover it and that there was nothing inside the oven as it had gotten itself very hot by the time it was discovered! Maytag says they don't have any recalls on this oven for this problem-- it is hard to imagine that my oven is the only one! This could have been a very serious fire hazard!
This oven is about 7 years old and was about $1,000 at purchase. New part it supposedly needs is a $400 circuit board. I am surprised that there was not a fail safe devised so that during a computer glitch, the oven would not heat up. Does anyone have a similar occurrence? Know why this happened? Will it happen again even with a new circuit board?

bann...why did you replace the element? It is possible that the relay or the control circuit were the problems and still are. The hi limit switch is a temperature 'box' which is designed to open the circuit in case of overheating. Rarely a problem. First, these units are 3 wire units. That means 220 volts ... two breakers. They may be part of a linked unit or separate. Turn them BOTH off and then on. Do all of your burners heat properly on high? If you have a voltage tester, you can test to see if the voltage is there. Unplug the unit. The vertical slot is neutral. Each of the other slots with the neutral should light the tester. If not, your problem is outside the stove.

Hi, UNPLUG the oven! Remove the screws that hold the element in and pull it toward you. Hopefully they were kind enough to give you plenty of wire to pull it out. Then just unplug old element and plug in new one. Some models have a screws on the element to hold the wire on to it.
I hope this helps.
Please let me kow if I can assist you further.

Sounds like the cancel (or stop) button is making contact by itself. Clock (oven control board) may need replacement.
One option to buy it new, your part number is 12001661
Coupon "New10" chops 10% off.
Another is to send the clock to be rebuilt. Google "stove timer rebuild", you'll find plenty of companies which can repair your original clock. In case you need it, the original part number is 74004542.
To get to the clock, remove the back of the control panel. Good luck.
