Gemini MER6769BAW Range/Dual Ovens

The lower heating element in the lower oven is non-operative. Is it likely a faulty element or something else? Is replacing the element difficult to do for a do-it-you-self homeowner?

    I thought mine was the element, turned out to be the main circuit panel aka control pad. This cost me around $450. The element itself is not hard to replace on mine, a few screws and it unplugs. Have someone test it before buying one. If it is burnt out it may have a blown out spot that is easy to see

    The lower element in my bottom oven is not working. The top element works, but the oven will only heat to about 225 degrees. Can someone walk me through a diagnosis and possible fix.

Depending on type of unit. most of the time they are very easy to change out.. look at element locate two screws. go shut off breaker to oven.. make sure its has no power. after removing screws element should come out fairly easy.. make sure not to let wires fall back inside unit. if so not to worry. just pull unit out from wall and remove back panel. push wire back through. hope this helps

Should the lower oven heating element heat all the way around? The heating element in my oven only heats and glows red on the front and two sides, The rear part of the element never glows red.

This is probably normal. the element has a fine wire inside the tube that you see and depending on where it starts in the tube it will start glowing from there.

Bottom oven bottom element doesn't heat

Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60

In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.

Power to that element comes directly from the oven control. If you have replaced the element and all wiring is ok then the control is bad even if you hear it clicking. The part # is 74006213 and cost is $298.99 @
Part # for is AP377973 and their price is $230.53.
