Where is this Hi-limit switch located on this oven!!!!!!Maytag MER5755QAS

Can someone please tell me where to find the Hi-Limit switch on this oven? We have replaced the element and checked the oven sensor which seems to have power. I really believe it is this switch but I follow the wiring diagram and see nothing!!

Two things sharyn, first check the breakers. It is possible that one of two that control the stove tripped...they are in tandem. Shut them off and back on. If no fix: You'll have to remove and test the element. (if more than one element is involved might be the thermostat) Breakers off, pull the element out and have someone take an ohm meter and test the unit. Still no good? Then it will be the thermostat or relay. Let me know what you find.

Depending on your model it is usually at the top behind the "grill" of the oven that is not working. Take out the screws aournd the oven latch (usually for cleaning) and slide out the grill. The limit switch is either over the latch or to the side. If it popped, just put it back with a screw driver. If that is not the issue, then it it could be a bigger issue.

SOURCE: maytag electric oven - MER5770AAQ. lower heating element not work

Hi, Unplug the oven and remove the element to test it. Check the element and see if there is continuity. If the element is open, replace it. It can be bad even tho it doesn't appear bad.

I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: high limit switch trips and needs re-set

After grilling or cooking at higher temps leave the oven light on so the cooling fan continues to run for approx 1/4 hour, or whatever setting will keep the fan running...

It is possible that when the element blew that the control board blew and is what caused the element to blow the chunk out of it. You might want to check for any voltage coming from the control board.

How can i tell if the hi limit thermostat in my maytag wall oven is bad

test with a multi meter on each end of the wire prong connector, place each end of ur meter prong on both 1 and 2 of the connectors, and test for continuity ohms or a close circuit. have ur meter on a low ohms setting as the level of ohms is low. if it shows an open circuit or no continuity, its defective. Infinity is the meter not showing anything like a number 1 and not moving?

Oven wont bake....everything else works??? Mod # KGRT607HBT4

It is either a high temperature limit switch which is located on the rear of the appliance under the steel panel or the actual bake element itself. You need a volt meter. Disconnect eletrical power and check continuity on your limit switches with the wires disconnected. If there is no continuity the limit switch is bad. The element should have continuity or a specific resistance that you would need to locate in your technical literature for this appliance.

My oven won't heat up.

You should first check your breaker Box and Flip both polls off then back on and try it.

If both ovens wont work ((Bake & Broil)) after trying the breaker box then the High limit Thermostat could be the problem, It is located in the rear of the machine.

If this problem happened after you did a self clean, most tech's will start at the High Limit Thermostat.

Hgc5-1 hobart gas convection oven board giving a 3 blink code after flame shuts off what is the code error seems like maybe a limit

Test wire nuts on wire #54 and #55 (on 550 degree high limit switch) for continuity, should show shorted if shows open, limit switch is bad. Test by jumping if oven works switch is bad.

Turbo chef is not heating up, coming up on it reads, f8 low heat

the problem with f8 like you have said LOW HEAT
, IF the oven does not warm up in time , which is usually 8 min , it goes into f8 fault code
now please check the hi limit button , on the back of the oven , left hand side, bottom corner, if it reset and starts heating, please check bottom element and temp reading IR , IF it rises very quickly and the elemnt is glowing red , please switch off the unit at the power point , you have problem with the solid state relay, if the temp is slowly rising , then you might only have an issue with the hi limit reset button thermostat, FIRST JUST CHECK THE RESET BUTTON

I have a double oven. Model WW27430. The top oven will not heat. The bottom is fine. I was told that is was the relay board. which I replaced and I am still having the same problem. Could both...

Looking at the schematic I see 2 possibilities:

1. I think the most likely cause is a failed "limit switch" aka "thermal fuse" aka "temperature cutout". For each oven there is a limit switch that feeds power to both elements. So the upper limit switch is probably tripped which would kill power to the upper bake and broil elements. The limit switch is usually located on the back wall of the oven cavity.

2. There are a relay board for each oven. Be sure you changed the right one.

Best Regards,

I want to re-set high temperature limit control,

if you open the oven door all the way, then, look under the control panel (where the top of the oven door seats) you will see a plate that has 6 to 8 screws holding it in place.Remove the screws of that plate with a phillips screwdriver.You will possibly need a flashlight to look inside the space where the reset switch is located... but it is THERE. Make SURE that you TURN OFF the circuit breaker or... UNPLUG the range... B4 you proceed to reset. Look for the Red Button on the back side of one of the limit control switches. Press it in till it clicks. (sometimes you'll hear it... sometimes you wont). Plug baack in ro reset your breaker switch, Turn on your oven and see if it works. If it does... then replace the vent plate close your oven door and now your cook"n with gas...well... electricity really.

Oven does not work after self clean


Sorry to hear you`ve had an ongoing issue like this. Can you tell me what the model number is of your oven ? Can you also maybe touch on what step`s have been taken in the past when this occur`s ?

Depending on the model and vintage of your oven, it likely has tripped the hi-limit thermostat. The good new`s is it is typically easy to reset as it is a manual reset type hi-limit as opposed to one time non-reset. Also this hi-limit is either located on side, back, or behind the grill between the oven door and control panel/fascia. Let`s hope for the later.

**Always shut off power to the unit before performing any service/repairs**

If it is indeed just a tripped hi-limit as I suspect, ( it is common after self clean cycles on many ranges/ovens, not just Thermador ) I have a few tip`s and suggestion`s after you`re up and running, but we`ll cross that bridge when we get there.

I`ll watch for your reply. Good luck.

I have a KEBI17DBL8 Oven that will not work after using the self clean cycle. Should I get the thermostat replaced or but a new oven?

No, no need to get a thermostat or replace the unit...yet.

sounds like a tripped hi-limit thermo.

that model number looks like a double oven wall unit, correct ? if so, big job. if not awesome. if it is, it's hard only because these are heavy. (alot of techs like myself have "wall oven carts" that allow me to remove it fairly easy) you might not have to pull it out though if it's not a wall oven, my bad.

however, I think it may be the older unit's manufactured by "Dacor". if so the limit switch on most of those ranges is a "non-resetable" style. meaning you'll have to replace the themal cut-out or aka thermal switch.
*FIRST, unplug the unit or shut off the breaker.
the hi-limit is located by the latch/lock assembly, so you'll need to dismantle the unit to a degree. if it's a free standing range, it's pretty easy. lift the top and the latch/lock access panel is located right there.

you'll need to determine the "why" as well of course. did the cooling fan/blower fail (#4173004), or the cooling fan therostat (#4173008) ?

the part number you'll need for the thermal switch failure replacement is #814505. check the old one by ohming it out first of course.

hope that helps,

good luck
