Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
Its an electric range, believe your lower element is either bad or wire to it burned off or the thermostat or control to it are bad.
FYI the Broil element is upper and lower element is bake. Just so we are on the same page. Sorry if you already knew this.
The most common thing is a bad lower element where food has "boiled oveer" and got on the lower element causing a cold/hot spot and thus burns it out prematurly.
Shut off breaker, no power to unit, remove lower element. Inspect wires in back of element if tight and connected, keep wire ends out and test for voltage (usually 220-240 VAC) on the wires. No voltage here then the problem is above at the thermostat or operation selector switch or wiring or a safety control and may even be in the clock timmer. If you have power there all these items are ok and again go to the element power off. Remove 1 wire which one dosnt matter. test for continuity of the element. It will proably read HIGH or infinity. My guess is anything over 30 to 70 ohms the element is bad.. the part number used to be located someplace on the element. Keep it together and un bent as much as possible becaused you may have to use the measuremants to secure a part number of a generic element.
Hope this helps. If so please grade me accordingly and good luck.
