Pros:Looks Good.
Functions Well.
Convenient to have two ovens.
Easy cleaning. 

Cons:Unreliable electronics (Control Board failure).
Top chips easily. 

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this range ONLY if one is adept at performing their own service.


Purchased our Maytag Model MER6755AAW in May 2005 from Lowes.  The unit worked like a charm until November 2011.  At that time, the top oven broil element would not heat.  I checked the continuity of the element.  It was good at about 72 ohms. Checked the voltage across the element and it was 0!!  It should be 220V.  Checked the voltage from the element to ground and got 120V?? The conclusion is that a relay on the "control board" must be open and I am reading one leg of the 220V through the temperature control relay.  

I called Maytag Services and made an appointment for a Tech to repair my "out of warranty" range.  The Tech called late the day of the scheduled appointment and discussed the problem.  He came to the same conclusion as I.  However, he said he did not have a control board with him and would have to order one from Maytag  supply and it would cost $550.00 and would cost $129.00 to install. It was late and he apparently was not eager to come by and take a look at the range.  So, he suggested that I reschedule the repair for a later date and he would pick up a control board to bring with him. 

Since I had taken the back off the range to check it out, I was quite familiar with how everything fit together and where the control board was located.  So, I decided to do the repair myself.  I ordered a control board from AppliancePartsPros.com for $154.55, tax and shipping included, and installed it myself.  The range works like new!!

In examining the faulty control board, I could see where the offending relay had gotten hot and melted one solder contact to the board. There were six relays on the board, all exactly the same.  So, I saved the board for spare parts should the problem present itself again.
