Oven will not shut off

Maytag model MER5770AAW smoothtop electric range. The lower heating element comes on and will not turn off. Red Hot. I hit cancel and nothing. It seems as though I can even set it to bake, but it never goes off. Turned it off a breaker box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a control board from another Maytag moel (sisters range), the glass was broken so I can harvest the parts. Not the smae model number and the keypad is different. Can I replace a relay?

    I have the same problem with just the top oven. Will try the 'unrecommended' trick with the relays before buying a new board. If I have to buy one - any suggestions on what supplier might have the best price?

Sounds like a stuck relay in the control board. The only way to repair this problem is going to be by replacing the control board. If you have anymore questions please ask. I'll be more than happy to help you further.

    The Relays are build into the control board, there isn't a way to just replace the relay on the board. You would have to unsolder and resolder, that's not recommended though.

    Try this, I know its not proper repair proceedure, Remove the back from the stove with the bad control board. Take the handle of the screwdriver and bang on the relays. The relays look like plastic boxes on the back of the board.

    It is possible that you could unstick the relay by banging on it. I have seen this done before and its worked fine afterwords. Give that a shot and let me know how you make out.

Should the lower oven heating element heat all the way around? The heating element in my oven only heats and glows red on the front and two sides, The rear part of the element never glows red.

This is probably normal. the element has a fine wire inside the tube that you see and depending on where it starts in the tube it will start glowing from there.

Oven will not turn off. Turns on, on its own

Try resetting the electronics. If that does not resolve it then you will have to get a board.

Preheats very slowly. Also, steam cleaning option seems to not be effective due to low heat. Is there more than one lower oven heating element?

For the oven their is 2 elements 1 for bake and 1 for broil,are each glowing red hot on the respictive settings of bake and broil? their is no trird hidden element. Plus i know manufactures come out with new features all the time,i attend factory trainging sessions a couple times a year but i am confused as to what the "STEAM CLEAN OPTION" IS??
THE SELF CLEAN cycle utilizes both elements to clean the oven adding steam is a new one on me

Element nor oven will get hot

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Heat in lower oven will not exceed 185 degrees

Several possibilities:

1. Bake/broil elements are bad - can you see them glow red?

2. Temperature sensor is out of wack - does the temperature displayed agree with the actual oven temperature? The sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance.

3. If the elements and sensors check out and the oven "thinks" it is hot when it's not, then it is probably your control board. In this case we may be able to help you, we repair these at
