I answered your previous question regarding this problem. Here is a link for that previous answer: I replaced a burnt Bake Element and I get nothing. No Bake, or Broil. I've looked for the Hi-Limit Switch, but cannot find one.

Unplug the range and remove the back panel. Trace the red wires attached to the terminal block if the information in the link provided above does not help you find that thermal high limit switch.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Thanks for your time Lyle...I did trip CB and Unplugged...removed back and traced Red wires..one went to Infinite Switch(far right) and the other went to Black terminal on the Elect. Control Board. ...also, I placed my hand between the insulation and oven cavity and felt around...pretty much all over and close to the edge. I couldn't find a Hi-Limit Switch...and I did the same on the top....I've pushed ll programs and cancelled them...tested the Oven Sensor and get a acceptable 1096 ohms and room temp....the oven door switch opens/closes like it's suppose to..... with nothing else left to check I was thinking it must a Elect. Control Board...and this model has NO Hi-Limit Switch..? P.S. there is a audible "click" when you turn on the oven or broiler. hat do you think? Thanks, Sam

A:

The click that you hear is a relay closing on the control board to apply voltage to the element. Since you find no high limit switch, I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on the control board. If the wiring is okay, I recommend that you check the resistance through the bake element and broil element circuits. You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms through those circuits. If the wiring connections are okay and the circuits are good, then you will probably need to replace the control board to fix this problem. A technician would normally check the voltages going out of the control board but I do not recommend that you make this type of live voltage check. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

Thanks, I did the checks and I am satisfied that there is no Hi-Limit Switch on my Maytag MER5765QAW...I replaced the Control Board and everything checks good. One thing though...wonder what happened with the bake element burning out? Was it caused by the control board, or was the control board caused by the baking element, or was it just a freak coincidence they both burnt me at the same time? Too mauch thinking.. Merry Christmas and Haapy Holidays! Sam

I am glad to hear that you got it fixed. Regarding the order of the failures, it is likely that the element failed and then shorted out of the control board. There is no way to tell for sure.

Q:

I have asked this qiestion before but need clarification. I have a electric Maytag stove model #MER5775QAQ. The cooktop works but the oven and broiler don't.

A:

I reviewed the answer by our Manage My Life expert Joey and I think that he is right. It could be a tripped high limit/thermal limiter on the back of the range that is causing this problem. Since you hear the relay initially click, this indicates that the control board is apparently closing the relay to apply voltage to the element. The control may click the second time because it detects no L2 voltage into the board due to a tripped high limit/thermal limiter switch. You can try this:

  • Unplug the range or shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power.
  • Pull the range out and remove the back panel to access the high limit/thermal limiter switch.
  • Remove the two wires that go to the thermal limiter and tape the leads securely together with electrical tape to "bypass" this component.
  • Reassemble the range and briefly test the oven to see if it will heat with this component bypassed.
If the oven heats, shut off the oven and order the high limit/thermal limiter switch (part 74008715) from the Sears PartsDirect website. NOTE: Do not continue to use the oven with this component bypassed. If you want to use the cook top, unplug the range and restore the wiring connections on the high limit/thermal limiter switch and reassemble the range. Once you receive the part, replace the high limit/thermal limiter and see if the oven will work normally. If it still won't heat properly then you could have a bad clock/oven panel control or you may have a problem with the oven temperature sensor.

NOTE: The technician may have already conducted the test described above and could have diagnosed your failure correctly. It is worth it to try the test noted above before replacing the control board in case the technician did not perform this check.

Be sure that you unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Excuse me Lyle....I have a similar problem/question...a Maytag MER5765QAW ... I replaced a burnt out Bake Element...but I can't get the Broiler, or Bake elements to come on. I've looked for this Hi-Limit Switch that shows on the Schematic and Parts List, but I can't find it on the Range anywhere, certainly not the back. Can you help?

The link below may help you locate the high limit switch on the back of the range. UNPLUG the range and remove the back panel. Trace the red wires attached to the terminal block if the tips in the link below don't help you locate that thermal switch. If you need more help, reply with additional details and I will try to assist you further.

A:

You could have a problem with the electronic oven control board or a tripped high limit switch. This range does have a high limit switch that will prevent the bake and broil elements from heating. I recommend that you unplug the range and check that component first. The wiring diagram in the first image below shows the high limit switch circled in green. It should have red wires going to it. A photograph of that part (74008715) is shown in the second image. You should find this component attached to the outside back wall of the oven. Move the range forward and remove the back panel to access this component. Press the red button to reset the switch. If it will not reset, it will need to be replaced. Here is a Sears PartsDirect.com link for that part: Limit switch .

If you reset this switch and still have a problem with the oven elements heating, I recommend that you check the continuity through that thermal switch using a volt/ohm meter (with the range unplugged ).

If the thermal switch is okay, then you will probably need to replace the electronic oven control board.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
