Question about KitchenAid KESC307 Electric Kitchen Range

Almond or Bisque Color the same??

I took off and disassembled the door the Maytag Oven Door on New Years Day. It turns out that the oven vents are located on a PLASTIC part that would not be paintable. O decided to replace the part #778537 that was about $30 from repairclinic.com
Also decided to replace the oven door trim insert (also very stained) since it was only $8 (part # 778514) . I decided painting plastic parts was not a good idea. Also this Maytag Oven, Model Number MER5770AAA, oddly seems to be called Almond at times and also Bisque color. So was not sure what color paint I would need. Does anyone know if Almond and Bisque are in fact that same color when it comes to Appliances such as Oven/Ranges?? Also What color is the Maytag MER5770AAA model Range?Is it almond or is it Bisque?

    Thanks --for some reason the replacement parts available for this model Maytag Range are listed in both Almond and Bisque. But this Model MER5770AAA range was only made in Almond, White and Black finishes I think. I can not understand why some replacement parts for this Model are shown as Bisque color and not almond. Do you think the replacement part companies(such as RepairClinic.com) are making a mistake and showing Bisque when in fact the part is actually Almond?

    I did notice that some parts for this Maytag Oven/Range MER5770A are no longer available. I think that I heard that Maytag went out of business and no longer exists. Whirlpool owns what is left of Maytag and plans to discontinue the Maytag name. So perhaps the end of Maytag lead to the incorrect paint for their products. This Oven/Range is 7 years old and now that there are parts that you can not get I suppose it is only a matter of time until she would have to replace it. Thanks for your help. We will try to get what life we can out of this model since repair parts are already only about 50% available. The Other 50% you just can not get!!

Your range is almond. The AA at the end of the model number is the color code for almond. Paint on a range may be affected by high heat be sure to use one that is tolerant of high heat. Almond is more yellow and bisque is more white, not the same color.

    I am not sure unless it is that the parts are no longer available in almond or hard to get in the almond color.

DOOR LOCKED FLASHING CONTROL PANEL WONT WORK


Hi

To unlock the oven turn off the oven and unplug it for 10-20 minutes. Let the oven cool and plug it back and check. If the oven door doesn't unlock then start the self clean cycle again and cancel the cycle after 15 minutes. Now let the oven cool down and try to unlock the door. If it still doesn't open then unplug the oven and you have to open the control panel and remove the door lock. Remove the three screws from the bottom of the control panel. You'll heed a 1/4" open wrench. Pull the bottom of the control panel toward yourself and push it up to release from the upper tabs. The door lock is secured by the three screws. Hope this helps...

Pull the screws out that hold the door together. look at the bottom of the door then look on both sides for screws. remove them all. Pull the door apart and you can get to the screws that hold the handle on.

Oven windows


I have the same problem. Two years ago the service representative came to my house to replace the door seal in my upper oven. He had to take the door apart to remove and replace the part. I used that opportunity to clean the interior glass partitions. I watch how he took it apart and put it back together again. I would not recommend trying it yourself. Also, local service reps. would clean it for you for a nominal fee. The problem is taking the bigger heavier door in which I have to do with mine.

Freestanding Electric Maytag Stove /Oven (with 4 burners self clean w/clock)


I WOULD LOOK AT THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY AS THE DEFECT. THERE IS USUALLY A SWITCH THAT TELLS THE CONTROL IF THE DOOR IS LOCKED OR NOT. IF THE SWITCH HAS SHORTED CLOSED, THE CONTROL THINKS THE DOOR IS LOCKED AND WON'T DO ANYTHING BUT CLEAN.
MOST OF THE ASSEMBLIES ARE UNDER THE RANGE TOP.
YOU MAY HAVE TO REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THE UNDERSIDE OF THE TOP AT EACH OF THE FRONT CORNERS. OPEN THE OVEN DOOR TO GAIN ACCESS.
IT WILL BE LOCATED IN THE CENTER. THE DOOR HOOK THAT STICKS OUT TO ENGAGE THE DOOR IS PART OF THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY.

you need to remove the door. On your model just grab the door and lift and it should lift right off. Then remove the screws that run along the bottom of the door. Remove the bottom trim and the glass should slide down and off. Reverse to assemble
