I used the repair listed below. Thank you! Never fixed anything like this before but I did it! I soldered like it says and did it! You saved Thanksgiving!

As posted from Geoff Andrews -

“Just fixed my Maytag MER6772BAS my lower oven element was not working & buying a replacement element did not fix it, I found the problem in the control panel circuit board. The relay for the lower element had a bad solder connection to the board ( the yellow wire relay ) re-soldered connection & problem fixed. Check everything before shelling out hundreds on replacement parts. I had to take the control panel apart to fix this issue be carefulll not to force any of the connections, do not disconnect any of the tape wire harnesses. REMEMBER DISCONNECT THE POWER 220 VOLTS WILL HURT. ALOT.”

SOURCE: bottom element in oven not working

bake%20element2.jpg Bake element Most times it is easy to see a failed oven element. Their will bea hole or a welded mark somewhere on the element where a piece ofcheese fell on it and caused a hotspot. You can also check elementswith a meter or simply apply some wall current to them using a cheatercord to see if it gets warm. If the element gets warm that means itwill work and is not bad. If the element ain't coming on but you havechecked it out, of course then that would be the thermostat. HEADS UP: When fooling with the stove always be sure the power isoff. Pull out the bottom drawer and most of the time you can unplug thepower cord without moving the stove. To make it easier to work on most stoves the oven door can beremoved. I set the door at the broil position and gently ease up on thedoor, remove it, and set it to the side.

Bottom oven bottom element doesn't heat


Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60

In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.

Whirlpool built in electric oven bake (bottom)heating element does not heat up only tot heats when in bake mode


CHECK FOR CRACKS IN THE BAKE ELEMENT. IF THE UNIT IS NOT HEATING THE BOTTOM, BUT THE TOP IS STILL HEATING, YOU MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE TO REPLACE THE ELEMENT. THIS IS A 220 VOLT OVEN WITH 110 VOLTS ALWAYS GOING TO THIS ELEMENT, SO TURNING OF THE BREAKER IS VITAL FOR SAFETY PURPOSES. WITH AN OHM METER, UNINSTALL THE ELEMENT AND CHECK BOTH WIRE CONNECTIONS FOR OHMS. YOU SHOULD GET SOME KIND OF READING BETWEEN 10 OHMS AND 500 OHMS. IF YOU'RE NOT AT LEAST GETTING A SOLID READING, REPLACE THIS ELEMENT.

Usually when the element fails to heat up, It means its usually broke, cracked, or where they plug in gets brittle and breaks. Your best bet is to replace the bottom element.

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
