Question and Answers

Q:

Maytag electric range Model MER5775QAQ won't self clean.

A:

You can try to reset that control board by unplugging the range for 3 minutes (or shutting off the house circuit breaker) to completely disconnect electrical power. After restoring power to the range, set the clock and see if the self clean cycle will work properly. I don't have programming information for that self clean cycle. I suspect that it will use the broil element and that the broil element and bake element will alternate in that mode. You may give the oven some time to heat up and see if the bake element ever comes on in that self clean mode. If not, then you may have a bad control board. The bake element and wiring are apparently okay since they work in other modes.

If you are sure that the control needs to be replaced, you can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that clock control board is 74009222. Unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing that control board.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine the range and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Q:

I have a Maytag electric oven model # MER5775QAQ and both the bake and broil don't work. The cooktop works fine. What is wrong?

A:

Based on your symptom the thermal limiter has likely tripped. The high limit/thermal limiter (key#18) may have to be replaced or it may be resettable if it has red button on it. In order to access the high limit/thermal limiter you will need to pull the range out and remove the lower panel. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the range before removing the lower rear panel. The high limit is part #74008715 which is available to order and have it shipped to you from Sears Parts Direct .

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.

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.
