In Topic: Maytag MER5555QCW oven (bake and broil) doesn't work

After replacing the control panel, do I still need to reset the Hi Limit Switch (thermstat)?

It seems that there's no such switch (Hi Limit) in this range looks like the one in the picture you posted. I checked the the wire connecting power terminal to the control panel, which is good and having power supply of 240 V. When I checked the wire (out from the control panel to the bake/broil elements), it was found there's no power out even from the control panel to the elements. After removing the wires (black on the circuit board), I checked the continuity of the them. There's no continuity between the power in (supply) and outs (to both bake and broil element). I guess there's something wrong between the power in and out on the integrated circuit board. In this case, do I have to replace the control board? Thank you.

HI guys, I cannot find this switch. Nothing really looks like the one showed. Please help me out to find where it's located. Appreciate your help.

I did not use self clean recently. However, when the bake was used, there's an "explosion" in the oven and smoke was full of oven. After that, both broil & bake don't work. The bake element was burned out (broken) and the broil element seems to be ok (om reading about 20). After the new bake element was installed, the light on the control panel was not lighting even the bake or broil was turned on. there're some clicking noise from the control unit (for digital clock, bake, broil, clean ...). checked the wire connecting to the elements and found there seem to be not power.

I suspected it might be the Hi Limit Switch problem. Just not sure how to check and confirm that's the problem. Do I have to replace it or it can be reset as you suggested. How to reset?

Really appreciate your expertise and help.
