Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range
I have a maytag range with the model number of MERH752BAB. All burners still work, but the Hot Surface Light stays on even though the burners are cooled down. The range is only a couple years old. Is there a sensor that needs to be replaced? If it is a sensor, is there a diagram with instructions for replacement? Do you know what the part number would be? I cannot find the product in your list below so please the product number in my notes. I just had to select something to get it to go through.
You do have a top burner sensor that has failed. the hard thing is to figure out which one. most of these units have a 5 year part warranty, but you have to pay for an authorized servicer replace it for you.
if you want to figure it out yourself, you will have to find which of the wires, from the burner sensor, controls the indicator light. its not hard as it is usually the smaller one. each burner has a sensor and if you are certain you can work with the electricity on, its just a process of elimination.
unplug the unit from the wall, then take off the wire from 1 burner at a time, tape it off, to prevent shorting to ground, then plug back in and see if the light has gone out.
then you can order the new sensor, but on some models, you have to get the whole burner and sensor assembly.
