Question and Answers

Q:

Maytag MER6872BAB Range

A:

Good afternoon.... I can appreciate your wanting to do the job yourself and save $. It would be very helpful if you could include your full model number. I did locate a link that will discuss this situation in greater detail. Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Have your tried turning the breaker off to the unit for at least 5 minutes? This action will reboot your unit back to it's factory settings. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this link will help guide you as to what might be wrong with your range and have a nice day

Thanks for the reply. The breaker has been turned on and off several time as I spend yesterday working with my electrician and BGE (my power company) The neutral cable coming off the pole at my house was fried. Several appliances in the house that have flat surface control panels are not working (microwave, dishwasher). MER6872BAB is the model number on the range

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you're having this problem with the range. Power surges are rough on electronic controls. I see you have already tried resetting the control. The most likely problem will be just the electronic control # 5701M406-60. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

What is so unusual about the problem you describe is that the dryer will heat but only for a very short time.

You replaced the selector switch with no change. The thermostats might be the problem but most of the time they either work and there's heat or they don't work and there's no heat at all.

If you haven't tried this already then the first thing to do is remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer. With the vent hose removed add a medium size wet load to the dryer. See if the dryer heat stays on a little longer with a wet load and vent hose removed.

The most common reason a dryer only heats a moment is a restricted vent.

Try this first and let me know how things go. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Sometimes the element will break and then lay across itself. It might heat till the wires separate and stop heating. A technician should check this.

I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Hi Fred, Thank you for your reply! I have removed the vent hose and it was completely void of any debris or lint. I'll try inspecting the vent inside the unit to see if perhaps there's a block that I've previously missed internally. As I mentioned earlier, after I changed the plug (but before I had the receptacle or breaker replaced) the heat came back on for several minutes. Unfortunately when it went off that time I could not get it to come back on (not even for a second) until I bypassed the inlet control thermostat. I'll see how long I can get it to stay on with that thermostat bypassed to see if it too turns off after a minute or two. I've checked the heating element but cannot find a break anywhere. The technician kept assuring me that it wasn't the heating element (not that I know he actually checked it very carefully as he was certain it couldn't be that if the heat came on at all even after I suggested that perhaps it was making contact just long enough for it to heat up and then moving too far apart) May I ask what the schematic you've attached is for? Any other suggestions? Thank you again! I appreciate your help!

A:

The diagram shows the heating circuit. I thought is might be useful to you. Sometime a element can be broken and still heat till the wires heat up and separate. You would have to remove the drum to visually check this. Remember to unplug the dryer before accessing the element.

A:

I agree with Maira. I recommend that you contact Sears PartsDirect to discuss this problem with them directly. The phone number is 1-800-252-1698.

The damaged control board probably burned some wires off of the voltage supply circuit or damaged the connection plugs for the control board. I would not have advised you to install the damaged control board. I recommend that you have a service technician physically examine the range and check the wiring. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

The range could have wires that are shorted to the metal cabinet. I don't recommend that you plug the range back in until a service technician examines it.
