Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
I have a MER6770AAC. The lower oven bake element is only partially working. All except for the last section that runs parallel to the back of the oven turns red. I assume that's not normal correct?? I replaced the element today and much to my dismay, it did the same thing. I called the store where I bought the element and he suggested that it's a power problem. I checked across both leads and had 240. I also checked across the ground to each lead and had 120. Seems fine there.
Any suggestions??? Thanksgiving is a week away and I don't want the turkey cooking unevenly. Thanks for all your help!!

Sounds like you have it figured, need to spend some moola..........
You can ohm out the sensor to the oven should be about 1100 ohms at room temperature.((the sensor is the little rod with two wires attached to it sticking in the oven, as temps change resistance changes which is read by the board) The upper and lower oven sensors are probably the same,you could just swap them to test, but probably not necessary,might also be confusing if you do not do a lot of testing on a regular basis. Remember to unplug unit for safety.
The bake element if it was not bad should be about 20 ohms, bad would read open........
