Question about Maytag MER5755QAS CleanDesign Electric Kitchen Range
I replaced the bake element and cannot get the oven to bake or broil. The range works, the oven light works, there are no error messages or indicators that there is a problem. No settings are on such as delay bake, sabbath mode, or anything that I can tell. I reset the circuit breaker and unplug the unit and plugged back in. Nothing happens! No heat! HELP!!
I have been looking at the wiring diagram. I find 1 familiar wire between the broil and bake element which has a HI LIMIT SWITCH drawn on the diagram but I am not sure what that is and have been unable to locate it on the oven.
If that hi limit is bad or tripped you wont get heat.the hi limit should sit near the heater if not in it.if you find this is tripped your thermostat could be faulty.from the schematic try to trace the wires from the heater to the hi limit and then jump it out.let me know.

SOURCE: Oven will not bake or broil
bann...why did you replace the element? It is possible that the relay or the control circuit were the problems and still are. The hi limit switch is a temperature 'box' which is designed to open the circuit in case of overheating. Rarely a problem. First, these units are 3 wire units. That means 220 volts ... two breakers. They may be part of a linked unit or separate. Turn them BOTH off and then on. Do all of your burners heat properly on high? If you have a voltage tester, you can test to see if the voltage is there. Unplug the unit. The vertical slot is neutral. Each of the other slots with the neutral should light the tester. If not, your problem is outside the stove.

Hello G Rego - The range may be reset by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, turn on the range and select bake or broil option. Should all troubleshooting measures fail, I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately. The range could possibly be experiencing a wiring failure, EOC (electronic oven control), sensor probe and/or faulty element(s). You can often local service providers by visiting the manufacturer website.
