Hi, we have a Maytag MER6872BAW (specific tag seems to have 8114P732-60 (12-99-00)). There were two elements not working, broiler on top oven, baking element on bottom - replaced the top and that now works, the bottom however will still not heat up with the replacement.

Resistance on the new element seems to be ok?

And on the image of the back of the panel. The wires marked 1 and 2 both have current running through them when on, verified with a non-contact tester, but I'm not sure specifically what else I can try - any thoughts? Fan and broiler in bottom oven also both turn on.

Any insights would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Ok James, with the oven on BAKE 350 put your meter leads on each bake element terminal in the back there and see how many volts your meter reads. Put your meter on AC volts.

Be Careful not to touch anything else when testing live voltage. Then unplug the range from the wall outlet when you are done testing.
