Maytag Model MEW6530 Baking Element

The baking element (part number 71001638) burnt out. I replaced the element to the two connections, however, the element would not heat. First, I thought the part was faulty and ordered another with the same results. I believe the wires connected to the element may be damaged. Do I need to trace them back to their connection or should I check something else? Thanks.

    Do you mean ?Oven Sensor?? Inside the oven is a probe that is 6? long and is described on the parts website as an oven sensor. The thermostat is also listed on the parts website, however, there is no picture of it or where it is located. The oven sensor inside the oven appears to be very easy to replace. If it is the thermostat, where is it located? Thanks.

At times there might be some prob due to  a weak oven igniter. It's the thing you see glowing. UNPLUG UNIT and replace igniter. And as u said there might be problem in the connection also i suppose..  also it may be due to irregular power supply. so better to trace the connection and replace if any damages present and prevent it from a major risk.. So don delay to replace if u probably know else contact a service man.. without delaying..

To test the oven sensor, unplug the range, then ohm the sensor with an ohm meter, the normal reading will be 1100 ohms at room temperature.check out and see if it is getting that .
or When you turn on your oven and look inside, do you see an orange glow from the bottom?
it it does not glow then the ignition is gone bad and needs replacement. thanks.

You need to see if there is an inline fuse for the element on the wires , if not then there will be one at the power source of the supply line for the element , also power sould be checked on the wires for the element before it goes to the wires( that would determine the inline fuse)

  • jason Oct 31, 2008

    those of you that are saying to check ignitor , THIS IS AN ELECTRIC STOVE!!!

  • jason Nov 01, 2008

    if you can you must make sure that an inline fuse or fuse for the element is not open , that would explain why the light comes on but not the element

Dear Sir/Madam,

The problem is indeed the control unit. You took the unit out and inspected the circuit boards. There is a burn't area under what looks to be a small transformer. The solder actually melted away, and the entire area is hazed over. You will have to order this part.
Also check out the selector switch .....Else I would guess the bake element wires go back to the oven control/clock.
The clock may work, but there is a bake/broil relays on the back of that clock that controls the oven.
The oven clock/control is all one piece.

thanks
good luck

Theres could be a 2 fault on the unit.. as you said on your statement that you have already change and replace the thermal tube. it is better to check also the connection of this and check the continuity and also you better check the thermal switch if its still good..

btw.. may i know the what happen the first time this problem occurred. did the unit got any electrical failure or any kind..


thanks

MEW6530 is not the complete model number. You'll have to locate the model / serial number tag off the range (usually on the frame behind the oven door for built in ovens) If your broil works it tells us that you do have 240 volts to the unit and that the high limit is good. If this is the case, the most likely cause is the relay which controls the oven is bad, most likely damaged when the bake element shorted out. This would require replacing the clock, which has all the relays mounted to it's electronic board. I'd list the part number if you had a full model number. (you could have a bad oven sensor or door lock switch, but these are not as likely in your case, having just had the bake element burn out and only then did this problem occur.)

    Check the dual high limit thermostat (part number
    74008265) located behind the control in the top of the oven. Specifically, check that there is continuity between the terminals which have the yellow wires going to them. (the other terminals should have red wires) If that is OK, you may need to replace the electronic range control (part number

    74008995) An improvement in the rating you posted for me would be appreciated. Thanks and good luck with your repair.

Theck the thermostate, the thermostat is the circuit that activates the heating, and power the baking element , when this is faulty there is no heat or low it, give it a check.

If you need to buy the replacement part, or to locate the thermostat, check on this website, they provide exploded view, so that you can locate the part.

Kenmore electric range model 911.95875790, no heat to either baking and broiler elements.


Hello. I looked carefully at the service manual for your unit--surprisingly, there is no thermal switch inline with the bake/broil elements. Usually, if the bake or broil elements pop, this blows out the thermal switch, killing power to the elements for safety. The main control board can get damaged due to the high current draw during a short-circuit. The part number for the main board is WB27T10008. The overlay(the decorative sticker with the button/names on it) numbers are as follows: almond WB27T10022, black WB27T10023, and white WB27T10021. I hope this helps you!

Baking & broiling elements won't heat after baking element burned out and was replaced.


the surge from the original element burning out has destroyed the control board if you can't hear the relays on the board clicking when you power up the elements bake or broil then its either the low voltage side of the board,if you hear clicking then the relays are working but the contacts are burned out and can't pass the current to heat the oven or briol elements

They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter, it should read 0 (zero or very close) resistance on an ohm meter. You may also take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

I have Whirlpool oven Model # RB220PXK (almost 30 years old) and the lower element sparked and stopped working. I measured the resistance of the element and it showed 1.6M ohms. Is my element bad or is...


HI. You can Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.


This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.

NOTE- The element may have small holes and bubbles on the coils as well. This is a sign of a burned out element. Test the element connectors as well.

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.

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?

Electricity getting to broiler element but not baking element


Get me the exact model number and I'll provide you a part number and the correct pricing info. That's way out of line, that part is probably less than $130.00 and is easy to replace yourself.

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.
