Question about Maytag PER5705 Performa Electric Kitchen Range
The clock works, but, the top elements and oven do not. The oven shows the temp set and indicates preheat, but, nothing happens. The top elements do not work at all.
SOURCE: inacurate temp
The follow suggestions apply if you are at sea level, or a bit above. If you are in the mountains, you'll have to compensate for altitude issues. You need an accurate thermometer to be spot on. One way is to use an electronic thermometer. Another is to set the oven to 217 degrees, insert a small pan of water into the oven, with a metal tray or pie tin on a lower rack to catch spills and see if it eventually boils. If the water didn't boil, you can adjust the temperature upward in 5 degree steps (see your owner's manual for details). If you've lost your manual, you may be able to go on-line and get a pdf copy of your manual.If the water does boil, you know your oven is accurate within 5 degrees. You can then proceed to re-do the experiment at 212 degrees, if you wish. Then you may use the data to adjust the oven temperature.

SOURCE: not heating up
If one of the heating elements is not heating at all, then replace the heating element. You can test the heating element reading Ohms with a multimeter. You disconnect element and read impedance with multimeter set at Rx1. If the element has no continuity, and the circuit is open , then the element has blown. In that case you get no heating at all on one of the elements. Check if either broiling or baking element is not working.
If heating is poor, then it is the sensor probe.
In some case replacing the probe does not fix the problem. In that case it is faulty control assembly. Usually it is the temp probe.
Here parts and diagrams.

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........
