Question about Maytag MER5552BAW / MER5552BAQ / MER5552BAB Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Matag MER5552BAW Right from the start my oven door lets so much heat out over the top of the door that it has stained the top edge of the door kind of a carmel color from the heat. I have tryed taking the door off to see if it is on right but there seems to be only one way it does fit. I looked at other new ones just like it in the store and they all seem to fit the same. Since I can't get the heat to not do that - how can I remove the icky color from the edge? This was a brand new stove a year ago and because of this discoloring - it looks older than the 20 yr old one I got rid of!

Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your Electrolux range has yellow stains on the top of the door. Typically you should just use warm water and mild soap to remove any stains on your range. If that does not help to correct the issue I would suggest a touch up paint that can by typically purchased through your manufacturer or replacement of the door. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt

Hi, I have a wonderful Maytag speckled black smooth top stove. Over Christmas someone caused a big (2 " diameter) stain. I've tried everything to get it out. is it possible to have a new ceramic...

Ceramic cooktop cleaning tips - especially for 2-in difficult-to-remove stain:
Best Idea: "Cerama Bryte" + plastic scrubbie
Cerama Bryte is specifically designed for this cooktop, works on stains, avail at Hardware Stores.

Other ceramic cooktop tips:
1. "Soft Scrub" plasic scrubbie
2. Comet cleanser + sponge
3. Single-edge razor blade held at 45-degree angle - scrapes off material
4. "Cook Top" cleaner (WalMart) + Mr. Clean "Magic Eraser" abrasive pad
5. baking soda on damp sponge
6. soak stain for awhile with Formula 409, Fantastic, or citrus degreaser ("Orange Clean")
7. ammonia + water - in a 1:1 solution
8. Easy Off oven cleaner - it foams on the stain and does the work for you - let it sit 20 min.
9. the nuclear option:
Cerama Bryte under a plastic scrubbie under an orbital sander with sandpaper removed
(just the pad down on top of the scrubbie), after pre-soaking in Citrus Degreaser.
The sander is a power tool which only saves your joints, and speeds up the chore.

Element in oven sparked at corner and now will not heat

The heating element burned through -- it needs replacing. Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element. To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

How to install a hancle on the oven door of a matag range?

Ok open the door to about 1/3 of the way the door will rest there when you let go. Now pull straght up on the door. The door will slide right off. Pull the screws out that hold the door together. look at the bottom of the door then look on both sides for screws. remove them all. Pull the door apart and you can get to the screws that hold the handle on.
Good Day Hope this helps.

Oven vents on front are stained and ugly. How do I clean them?

sorry but you wont be able to remove the "stain" what has happend is the paint used by maytag has become discolored from the oven vent heat and the only way to correct it is to replace the panel. they are available but for about 80 bucks. you could try to paint the panel but it will do it again.

Bottom oven element on Model MER5552BAW

magic, start with the basics first. See if you have the right power going to the oven. At the terminal block on the oven, where the cord attaches, you should have 120V from the center terminal to each end terminal. You should have 240V across the 2 end terminals. If you don't have this, there is your problem. If that's ok, check the voltage at the bake element terminals in back. Should be 240V when in bake. If that checks ok, then it would be the element itself. Check it, with power off and wires disconnected from the element it will ohm at approx. 20 to 22.6 ohms. If you don't have the power at the element then I would suspect the oven controller. The fact that it's heating to 170 degrees leads me to believe that you are missing a leg of power. Catriver.

Older model - belling 356 double oven - unable to get grill to work

The microswitch on the right of the top oven is stuck in. Open the top oven door and you can see the switch on the right. It has a small black rubber cap on it. To solve this, loosen the right top and bottom screws of the brown panel and lever the white panel slightly to the right. Tighen the screws and the switch should go in and out as you push and release it. The grill will now come on when the door is open.

Oven door will not seal at top.

The same thing with mine. I took apart the door today and found the hinges a little bent. I think it should be ok to bent them the opposite way a little with some mole grips......and then I must remember not to move the stove out for cleaning by the oven door handle again (oops).
Door comes off (unlock hinges and lift up). undo 4 screws on the bottom edge and then two on the inside of the door handle then it comes apart - beware as it's heavy. The hinges themselves come off with two screw each.
