Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
The heating element (Im guessing-The odd shaped rod on the bottom of the oven that normally gets red) made popping noises and burst into flames on the left side of the oven. Since then the oven will get warm but it took 30 minutes for it to get to 200 degrees and the element is not turning red. Was wondering if this part can be replaced and for approx. how much money or do I have bigger problems? The numbers on the left side door are: 8114P471-60 and on the right side door are:
8114P395-60. Not sure if the product below is even correct.
heating elements are usually good or failed with nothing between so unlikely to be the element. problem probably lies with the thermostat. to check, bypass the thermostat and check the oven gets really hot.

Unplug the range.
Open the oven door.
Remove the racks.
Remove the 2 screws holding the bake element to the rear wall of the range.
Carefully pull the element from the access holes in the rear wall.
Remove the wires from the element.
With your meter set for continuity, put one lead on each element end.
If you get a reading it is good.
If it is good. Replace the wires and reinstall the element.
Pull the range out from the wall.
Remove the rear panels.
Plug the range back in.
Set your meter for 220volts or more.
Careful now because you are working with live voltage.
Set the oven for bake.
Put a lead on each element terminal to check voltage.
If you have 220 volts at the element, unplug the range and unplug the temperature sensor.
Set your meter for ohms.
Check the 2 leads on the temp sensor.
If at room temp the sensor is 1050 - 1100 it is OK. If not replace it.
If the temp sensor checks out OK, replace the ERC

Sorry to say but the erc or eoc has gone bad. The oven control is part # 74009212 at about 200.00. Sorry for the news but it is the problem. Hope this has helped.

I am attaching a Gemini manual. The checking procedures are the same for your oven.
Two component suspects for your problem would be the door latch mechanisms and the oven temperature sensors.
