Question about Maytag PER5510 Performa Electric Kitchen Range
Broil works fine. Bottom heating element does not turn on in Bake and Clean modes
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.

Probably a failure to get 240 volts to those elements.
If burners work, then it's probably an oven CONTROL(S)l failure. Test them if you know how. Very difficult to find parts for a stove that old.

Testimonial: "very helpful as all 4 burners work but oven does not get hot enough to bake. As suggested I will search for new oven temp control switch. Thank you "
I have the same problem... I checked both elements and they are fine. I was wondering if it was the ERC. Have you fixed yours yet? Please let me know.

Sorry to say but the erc or eoc has gone bad. The oven control is part # 74009212 at about 200.00. Sorry for the news but it is the problem. Hope this has helped.
