We have a Maytag Gemini...
We have a Maytag Gemini Double oven (electric). The top oven's lower cooking element does not heat. There are no issues with the upper heating element and the lower oven haes no problems. The oven is 7 1/2 years old and out of warranty. Is this something that can be fixed (replaced) by a do-it-yourselfer or does this require an experienced technician? What kind of costs can be expected either way?

Thank you-
Gary

Maytag Gemini Electric - 30" in free standing range

I can get access to a volt ohm meter.

Do you have a volt/ohm meter?

Yes, I have a volt/ohm meter as I stated earlier. I am not at the appliance right now.

Unplug unit and remove the big back panel. Put the oven in bake mode and check voltage at the bottom element connections, you should have 220VAC. If you have voltage replace the element. If no voltage replace the clock/control board. The element comes out the front of stove by removing two screws and pulling element out. The clock/control can be replaced through the upper back panel. Both are easy to replace. The bake element part # XXXXX XXXXX and cost around $42.00. The clock/control part # XXXXX XXXXX and cost around $300.00.

Just to verify, shoulld I plug the unit back in after the panel is removed and I am testing the voltage? I can not place the oven in bake mode if unplugged as it is digital.

 

If determined it is the element - do i simply remove the 2 screws on each side and pull it out and then push th enew one in? Are there any internal connections or wiring to be concerned with?

Yes you will have to plug the unit in to check for voltage. If the element is bad you have to unplug the wires on the element to replace. You will see the wire connections when you check voltage. Always unplug unit b/4 replacing any parts.
