Question about Maytag MER6872BAS Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
I just want to let everyone know I had the same problem with our mer6872bas oven where the upper oven stopped coming up to temperature 2 years after it was purchased. The lower oven stopped coming up to temperature 4 years after purchase. Both broilers worked. I spent a lot of time researching the problem to find out that the relays were soldered to the control board insufficiently. The solder had melted, dripped down onto a heat shield and all conductivity between the relay and control board was lost. This resulted in only 115v being applied to one side of each lower heating element. There are terminals on the backside of the relays that can be used to re-establish the connection. Both of my lower elements work perfectly now.

Steps to check element. TURN off breaker that feeds oven. Unistall bottom element in question. With a continuity tester see if element has continuity. If it does not then element is bad, replace it and turn on breaker. If it does you need to call a technician because the next step requires voltage testings that can shock you if done improperly..
