Maytag MER5755QAS Electric Oven

I replaced the bake element which had burned out. The process was very simple and I know it had to be done but it is still not working. I tryed the broiler just to see if it would heat and I get nothing. Is there a reset or fuse or something else I need to do to get it going again?

Hi,my oven does not work the screen says off the burners work but oven don't. model # mgr5770adw serial # 1659974wq can you please help me

It might be a simple problem that your baking element is burned. The MGR5770adw is a gas model though. If that's the model you have you need to call a technician ASAP since it's nothing you should be playing in yourself. If it is an electric as stated on top you can attempt to order a new baking element . Part centers would carry it or you can order it from

The bottom oven is heating up very slow.

If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.

The bake element is the bottom element in your oven. The life span of these elements can vary depending on the usage of your oven and the quality of the element. Anything electric has an unpredictable lifespan. Elements made on the same assembly line can vary greatly in how long they last. But when the element burns out it will need to be replaced to have your oven work properly.

The thing the fools many people is that many ovens will use the broil element to preheat the oven and then switch to using the baking element only. When this happens the oven will no longer heat and will cool down. The unit may sense this and activate the broil element again which will cause wild swings in temperature and also can cause food to burn on the top self or not bake properly.

If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contacts where the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good.Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.

If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

The oven is taking forever to heat to 250...The broil works and the stove works...The oven will not heat above 250 on regular bake mode

Sounds like the bottom element is not working, Check it. If it is, there is a high limit, that shuts the oven off it it overheats. When they go bad, they shut down at lower temps. Sounds like that might be your problem

Maytag Oven model MER5755QAS trouble heating up

your bake element could be burned out & the oven is trying to get to temp with the broil element only. see if it is getting warm or if it has a burnt spot on it. if it seems to be ok, you may have a bad oven sensor. the oven sensor should have a reading of at least 1100 ohms. let me know if i can be any further help.

Electric oven does not heat up enough

I had the same problem before the warranty expired. The heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. They replaced the heating element and it works as it should, however, this oven has never baked right. It gets hotter on the right hand side than it does the left and I have to constantly watch whatever I bake. I'm not very happy with this oven.
