Question about Maytag MGR5880BDS Gas Kitchen Range
Hello, I have a Maytag Electric Range Model # MER5755QAW I went to bake a pizza at 425* but after a hour the oven temp only got to 200* ...I unpluged it from the wall, I turned off the breaker, still it did not work...The odd part is the Broiler works on both high and low settings...I called Maytag and they gave me three numbers of Repairmen to call, but they want 80 bucks just to come out and tell me whats wrong...That does not even include parts or labor !!! I found a site who sells Maytag parts and if it is possible to find out whats wrong I would like to be able to order the right part and repair it myself !!! If I pay 80 bucks plus parts and labor which they said could be 150 or more, Heck I might as well buy a New Stove !!! Please help me, I would greatly appreciate your expert advice, and Thank you in advance...M.E.F. Sr.
Unplug the range.
Open the oven door.
Remove the racks.
Remove the 2 screws holding the bake element to the rear wall of the range.
Carefully pull the element from the access holes in the rear wall.
Remove the wires from the element.
With your meter set for continuity, put one lead on each element end.
If you get a reading it is good.
If it is good. Replace the wires and reinstall the element.
Pull the range out from the wall.
Remove the rear panels.
Plug the range back in.
Set your meter for 220volts or more.
Careful now because you are working with live voltage.
Set the oven for bake.
Put a lead on each element terminal to check voltage.
If you have 220 volts at the element, unplug the range and unplug the temperature sensor.
Set your meter for ohms.
Check the 2 leads on the temp sensor.
If at room temp the sensor is 1050 - 1100 it is OK. If not replace it.
If the temp sensor checks out OK, replace the ERC
