Question about Maytag MER5775Q Electric Kitchen Range
My oven would not preheat. I checked and found bake element broken. Relaced the bake element but it shorted out( touching metal ground). Now neither bake or broiler work. Multi- meter reading for resistance = 0 on both elements. I'm afraid I shorted both elements - maybe more. Before I purchase 2 new elements is there any way to check for further damage? I don't hear the clicking sound in the bake or broil setting. I also read that a circuit board may be fried. Help! thanks, Mike
HI. I'm afraid that you have shorted out the two element relays located on the main board. This will require you to have the main board(ERC/PCB) replaced, asap. The elements are also damaged. A good element will have ranges around 19 to 115ohms, when tested on Rx1 settings. Due to the fact that the relays are not clicking as designed, this will confirm the additional damaged that is located at the main board.
Replace the elements and main circuit board.

Are other part of the oven working ?
if the answer is yes then go a hard to get the new element but make sure that you are buying the same side or you should go to the store together with the bad element ,
let me ask you a question that think you most have ask your self , will you be able to fix up the element after buying it from the store if the answer to my question is yes then do just that but if the answer to the question is no the you will have to invite a technician along with you.
thank you and thank for using fixya.
