Maytag electric range buzzes and resets clock when key is pressed

Maytag MES5552BAB electric range - sometimes when I push the Bake key (also happens with other keys), there is a momentary electrical buzzing sound or hum in the controls unit, the clock resets randomly, and the display shows the number 30. Pressing Bake again gets me going (except the clock is off). It only happens on the first key press when I go to use the stove. If the first key press works OK, then additional key presses are fine also.

What needs to be replaced to fix this?

I have a Maytag model MER5775QAW free standing range. When you press "bake" and then set the temp. and press "bake" again the numbers instantly climb to the set temp and the buzzer beeps showing oven at...


Unplug the range open the control panel to access the electronic oven control. Unplug the wires and wait 5 minutes. Replace all wires on the control and turn the power back on.
If this does not reset your oven control it must be replaced.
Your ERC(clock) is bad and must be replaced.

When i hit bake the clock resets


I've seen this happen on some models due to a bad temperature sensor probe or bad oven door switch. This can also be caused by a problem with the electronic control. If you are able to eliminate the probe and door switch as culprits, we can help you with the control board. We repair oven controllers at www.fixyourboard.com.

When I press BAKE to preheat the oven or CLOCK to set the time the display goes blank, then the number 30 appears, and then the clock time resets itself. I can still use the oven to preheat or bake, but...


I have the same problem. I bought it new in the fall of 2007. They replaced the control panel but that didn't help. Next they replaced the whole range with a new one, same model, still the same problem. They told me it was a problem with my electric in my house. Then they said it was a strange electro-magnetic field in my neighborhood and I would have to buy a different brand?
One time with the original stove the oven quit working and I had to re-set the breaker. Everything still works but the clock is always wrong.
We bought all Maytag stuff, including fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer. The kitchen stuff is 4 years old. The washer and dryer are 3 years old. We have had this issue with the stove, the washing machine broke and they had to replace the whole drum assembly, and last week my refrigerator broke. Very disappointed with Maytag stuff.
So has anyone found a solution?

Maytag slide in range - MES5752BAW - when you press BAKE or BROIL the power cycles off and the number 30 flashes on the display then the power cycles back on and the clock is reset to 12:01.


I had similar issue with my Maytag slide in range MES5552BAB. Pressing Bake or Broil would sporatically cause clock display to go blank, show "30" then reset clock to 12:00. Under warranty, the service technicians replaced the clock unit twice. On last visit the range performed the error while technician present.

The suspected problem is that the clock unit is experiencing high frequency interference.
The proposed solution is to place noise suppressors on L1, L2 and Ground wires at the clock. (Noise suppressor: Ferrite beads, Sears Part #12001500.) Reverse L1 and L2 at the pigtail terminal block.
