Maytag advanced Cooking system oven Model MER5770ACW Serial

Resolved Question:

Maytag advanced Cooking system oven
Model MER5770ACW
Serial # XXXXX

The stove top elements are very hard to control. They go on and off intermitttantly when we are trying to cook ; especially the large dual element on the right front.

Should I just replace the elements or is this also a control problem.

the switch under the knob is what determines when the elements turn on and off (they don't have a low or high setting they just turn on more for higher tempratures). If the elements turn on at all then the element is good. So if you think they are hard to control or not working properly then replace the switch under the knob to that burner.
