Hello all.

I'm new to the world of large appliances and I think my ignorance has gotten me this time. Our first home is wired for three prong appliances. In the transition to the newer four prong, I miswired the ground and the nuetral on the oven. The range worked (and still does work) fine, but the erc and the oven were completely dead. My wife plugged a small appliance into the built in socket and when she did the erc lit up and then pop! She could smell a small amount of electrical smoke. I've since fixed the wiring in the socket, but the oven is still dead. Anyone have any wisdom to share? Does it sound likely that the controller is burnt? I took off the back panel and nothing appears charred to the eye, but there is some burnt smell that I wasn't able to pinpoint.

The oven is a Maytag glass top. Model # MER5870ACW.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Eric

I would think something burnt, but will need to trace how much damage was done to what and where, might take a pro on this one...

Once the outlet is wired properly and verified with your meter...

... then plug the range back in and see if you're getting 120v up to the ERC.  If so, it's fried.  You can scroll down to the bottom of this page a buy the replacement there.

Thanks for the help folks. I haven't tested the socket yet since I'm at work, but that will get done as soon as I get home. I'm having some trouble finding the part number for the ERC though. Is it called "clock w/ overlay" in the store? There's no picture so I can't visually compare it. I'm trying to get an idea of how much it would cost to replace it if that's what it turns out to be.

 

Thanks again!

Eric

Sears.com shows the clock W-overlay part number  74003794 at $361.49.   This site says this is replaced by 74008099 at $145.55.   Pegi
