Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range

7 Answers

The top oven is not baking evenly. My wife thinks when we recently moved the stove to our new location we may have messed up the space at the bottom of the door. We checked the temperature and it is accurate. Any idea what is going on and if it is the bottom hyinges how do we change them and what is the measurement? THANKS Dave

    temperature corresponds to the setting we punch in.

  • fireside331 Dec 28, 2008

    If the oven holds temperature OK how can it be the heating element. I would like to know what the opening space at the bottom of the door should be for circulating the air.

  • fireside331 Dec 28, 2008

    I checked the temperature with a thermoometer made for ovens. The reading from the thermometer was the same as on the oven display.

  • fireside331 Dec 28, 2008

    This suggestion sounds better than most I have received. As you probably know the Gemini MER 6770 Is digital.

  • fireside331 Dec 28, 2008

    I am going to follow through some of the suggestions this coming week. Hopefully with some positive results

  • fireside331 Dec 29, 2008

    Am I mistaken by thinking some air comes in from the bottom of the door? There is a section of the gasket at the bottom that does not seal. In other words the gasket does not make a complete loop around the door.

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

  • 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.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.


  • 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!

You need to have the hinges or the door assembly replaced.

    If the hinges are broken or the door is not closing well , that can be the problem. In that case the oven won't heat properly near to the door.

    If the oven does not heath either on the lower, or the upper side, then eithr the broiling or backing element has failed.

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.

While baking my wife noticed sparks coming out of the baking element or coil. can we continue to use the stove top or should we leave it unplugged.also how much does it cost to replace the element


It sounds like the element shorted out and needs replacement. I would not continue to use the oven, although it should be ok to use the stove.

It's difficult to say what a new element plus installation will be, but you can call around and get estimates. Have the model number, type and serial number available if possible before you call.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Yes, we were a couple of dummys when we received our brand new LG stove, with convection oven,glass top and very fancy, and we put tin foil to cover the bottom of the stove and of course yesterday when I...


I really don't know what to tell you. During the clean cycyle the metal probably melted and is permantly sealed to the bottom. You are lucky the oven still works. Sometimes using foil will destroy sensors or other things. NEVER use foil in ANY oven!!!!! The only exception is to partially cover the shelf underneath something you know is going to make a mess. Even then don't cover more than about 60% of the rack.(Never do this in a convection oven as the fan will blow the foil ) Also NEVER!!! allow foil to come in contact with a hot burner. It will melt to the smooth top or coil.

GE Spectra oven not lighting

Oven won't heat


This could be the ignitor. The ignitor is located under the bottom of your oven. you get to it from the inside of the oven. A quick check though is to set the oven to bake and wait about 30 seconds and see if you can see a faint orange glow from the bottom inside of the oven. If you do then your ignitor is probably working ok and the problem lies somewhere else.
