Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range
The small heating element on the left is not working. How do I open/replace this part? Range came with home when I bought it and no manuals
There are a few screws located under the front edge of the top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. Make sure you unplug the range or turn off the main breaker BEFORE servicing. There are still live voltages present with the range turned off. There are a couple of screws holding the element in place, as well as some wires. Make sure you write down how the wires were connected to assist you in reconnecting them in the right order. Make sure you also take note of the numbering scheme on the element and make sure you place the mounting brackets in the same holes that they came out of on the old element. Last of all, make sure you handle the new element carefully. Care must be used not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure. Good luck and I hope this helps.
