Maytag MER6772 - Oven bake element not working even after replacing it.

I have a Maytag MER6772 electric oven. The top oven bake element stopped working. The broiler still works. Replaced the bake element but it still does not work. Both elements work in the bottom oven. No error codes display. The oven is 7 years old.

These ranges have a tendency to blow out either the solder joints or the relay leads on the PC board of the main controller when an oven element fails. Apparently there is a current surge as the element fails which causes this.

Check these threads and you will see others who had the same problem.

In my case, the lead to the oven relay vaporized so I could not solder it back. The relay on my MER6755AAS is a Song Chuan 832-1C-F-C-12VDC. I searched the part on the web and found 832-1C-F-S-12VDC in stock at an electronic distributor which is the same relay in a sealed, washable version for
$ 2.88.

I soldered in the new relay and everything works fine.

Note these relays are not available as spare parts. Only the entire control assembly is sold for about $270.00 An official service person will only replace the whole assembly, but if you do this on your own you can save big $.

There are 7 of these relays on my control, so I ordered 7 relays for any future repairs.

The bottom oven is heating up very slow.


If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.

The bake element is the bottom element in your oven. The life span of these elements can vary depending on the usage of your oven and the quality of the element. Anything electric has an unpredictable lifespan. Elements made on the same assembly line can vary greatly in how long they last. But when the element burns out it will need to be replaced to have your oven work properly.

The thing the fools many people is that many ovens will use the broil element to preheat the oven and then switch to using the baking element only. When this happens the oven will no longer heat and will cool down. The unit may sense this and activate the broil element again which will cause wild swings in temperature and also can cause food to burn on the top self or not bake properly.

If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contacts where the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good.Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.

If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

My top oven on the maytag "gemini" doesn't work! it is a gas oven.


1) Confirm if its just the bake or both bake and broil that doesn't work. 2) If its just the bake you will most likely need to replace the bake ignitor. 3) If its both you need to test for voltage output from the electronic control to the ignitors.

No power to upper oven 'bake' heating element.


Sounds like you have it figured, need to spend some moola..........

You can ohm out the sensor to the oven should be about 1100 ohms at room temperature.((the sensor is the little rod with two wires attached to it sticking in the oven, as temps change resistance changes which is read by the board) The upper and lower oven sensors are probably the same,you could just swap them to test, but probably not necessary,might also be confusing if you do not do a lot of testing on a regular basis. Remember to unplug unit for safety.

The bake element if it was not bad should be about 20 ohms, bad would read open........
