Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
Hello, what may have happened when the unit was moved someone used the handle to lift the unit which in turn has bent something most likely the hinges which will cause the door to be out of alignment slightly allowing heat to escape and an imperfect seal on the oven cavity. Have the hinges replaced also inspect the hinge channel and door panel (inner). P.S> if the elements heat up they are O.K. Good Luck

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.
If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.
Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.
Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.
If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

I had a similar issue with my Wolf ovens. The upper one was not heating evently and I thought there was an air leak in the door seal since it seemed to be hotter at the back. That seems to be the most common adjustment.
The repairman came out and did his electornic diagnostic thing and determined that one of the heating elements was in fact bad. They ordered a new one without taking it apart. Then, when the new part arrive, they tooke the oven out and disassembled. The heating element looks like a strip of krinkled metal running through a tray of clay -- except my krinkled metal strip was pulled up, twisted and bent around. Worked a whole lot better when they got a good one in there.
I'm not sure that we have an air leak. A bad heating element is the more likely cause as one side of the oven gets hotter than the other. OTOH, when I baked muffins, all of them came out raw. So perhaps it is the control panel as others have stated.

It definately sounds like a heating element broke when you were moving the oven or a wire the was allready real crispy finaslly brokr during the move. If I was you i wold grab some tools and at least take a loo at the wire connnections but be sure to kill power first. also if it is a broken element they are not to hard to change. good lluck!

It could be the heating element gone faulty or broke down and needs replacement.so its baking problem.

I see that u say the oven temp is accurate? how did u test this? did u try different locations inside the oven to confirm even heating? try adjusting the gap you speak of closer in and see if that helps, but still curious about your method of checking oven temps.
