Question and Answers

Q:

my oven reaches 300 degrees then shuts down MER6769BAW Maytag Range

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. We, at Sears, value your service.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the range.
 
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Maytag Range model number MER6769BAW.

First you need to check the upper broil and lower bake element to see if they are working to full strength.  If you have an ohm meter then you can test them for full continuity.
Test both the upper and lower elements.   If both are good then most likely you will need a new oven sensor.
 
1.  For safety reasons, unplug the range/oven or disconnect the power.
 
2.   Look first to see if there are any visible signs of burned spots or separations on either element.
 
3.  Unscrew, one element at a time.   Then remove the element.   Be careful in not letting the wires go back into the oven hole.
 
4.  Attach the wires of a multi-meter to the ends of the elements.  If your elements measures less than 50 ohms the problems will not be with the element.  If you have a high resistance reading, you may need to replace the elements.

If the upper broil and lower bake elements are good then you will either have problems with the oven sensor or the control board.

Oven temperature sensor:

1.  Make sure the sensor is secure, inside the oven and in the right position.  It should be attached to the back wall of the oven.  The sensor measures the temperature of the air so make sure that the sensor is not touching the side wall, the oven rack, or anything else.

2.  If you can get an oven safety thermostat, hang the oven thermometer in the oven by wrapping the cord around the rack.  Adjust the rack so that the thermometer is hanging in the center of the oven.  The thermometer should not be touching any metal.  Set the temperature display on the counter beside the oven.

3.  Set your oven at 350 degrees.  Take the first temperature reading right after the oven finishes preheating.   Do not open the oven door during this test or results may go wrong.

4.  Ovens work by heating up a temperature above what it is set to, and then cooling to a lower temperature before it heats back up again.  The average of the high and low temperatures should be the temperature the dial is set to; a difference of up to 50 degrees between the high and low is normal.  

5.  If the ovens average temperature is way above or below that which it is set too, then the oven is not calibrated correctly.   You may need to contact a service person to see if the sensor or the oven control board is bad.

Please "RESUBMIT ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.
