Hello...after incinerating multiple meals and replacing multiple temperature sensors in our Maytag MER8775AS oven we now realize the fault lies in the oven control board #WPW10586726. (I confirmed the correct resistance reading on the newest sensor with an ohmmeter.)

After waiting 5 months for the new board we find it's unavailable (apparently everywhere.) So now we're sending the old board out to be diagnosed & hopefully repaired.

Here's my question: Can we still safely use the surface burners while the oven control board is out of the unit? I saw a similar question elsewhere on this forum and it appears that the answer varies according to the model in question. Thank you very much for your help!

Yes, it should be fine to do that on this model. Just tape the electrical connector ends up with black electrical tape.
