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.

Re: Oven will not shut off
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.

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
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
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 www.fixyourboard.com.
From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.
How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.
When you put the oven into bake it preheats with the bake and broil element both. The broil element is most likely your only heat source if it took that long to cook the pie. Need to verify that the bake element is coming on. If it isn't then the problem is either in the control or the element itself. Give me the model # off the sticker on the oven and I can help you do the check out. In the mean time see if the bake element is getting hot.
