Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range
My maytag has continued to trip my breaker box, every single time I've used it. I've called an electrician out to look at my breaker box and he saw no problems. Even when I use only one eye, and it's on medium high or even medium it trips the breaker. Also, any time I try to use the over part, it trips off after a few short minutes. I will continue to go and switch the breaker on, and on and on every time it trips. Usually about 4-5 time per 30 mins of use. PLEASE HELP!
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
Sounds like you have a short circuit in your electric range!
What is the model # ?
How old is this range?
You will need a good service tech, hands on for this!
Let me know how it goes,
Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old range
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
