Problem with Precision Touch Control 500 Electirc Smoothtop

I was using the stove the other day and everything was fine, but the next day the largest element (which is also a dual element in that it has a size selector for larger pots) stopped working. The second element (the one that makes the total heating area larger) works, but the main portion does not. The specific model # is MER 5165RAS. I'm not having any other problems with it. I have reset the breaker and unplugged it over night and plugged it back in, but it still does not work.

Re: Problem with Precision Touch Control 500 Electirc...

It's more than likely an open element or a burner thermo. There are 2 ways to check. One is find a wiring diagram and trace the burner circuit to see if the element circuit is open. The other way (and you have to be careful) is to remove the top, being very careful not to crack it lift it off and check the element leads for an open element or element thermo. There will be several screws around the bottom out base of the top. Check it and you will find out what is wrong.

I think some wires may have burnt due to high voltage or overloading

Kitchen range cleaning

Use Glass cook top cleaner by Weiman. For stubborn burnt on food use a scraper or razor blade and hold it at and angle almost parallel with the top of the stove top and scrape off gunk.

No heat Maytag smoothtop range MERH752BAB

It would have to be under warranty if this happened after only 1 week. I would contact the manufacturer.
