Model # MER6770AAB, Serial # 21479859ZH Gemini dual oven range.

 I had a problem with this range recently. The upper oven top element wasn't working. Traced it to the hi-limit switch and replaced it. Worked fine. Now the upper oven lower element doesn't work. The element itself is good. I traced the voltage back and it APPEARS  that the relay controlling this element has lost its "ground" or return connection. There are four relays on the circuit board in this range. Two of them (connected to the two broil elements) are connected directly to the black wire that goes back to the power cord. The two relays for the bake elements appear to make this connection in some other way.

Now: the relay connected to my nonfunctioning element does work. It clicks and 240 VAC appears at the unused contact on the other side. Is there any reason I shouldn't connect another wire to hook this unused relay contact up to the return side of the power line? It looks simple and straightforward - therefore I'm worried.

As shown on PDF pages 42 & 43 (MER6770AA*)

These Relays directly connect the folowing Elements to Black.

UP BAKE  Orange Wire

UP BROIL  Tan Wire

LOW BROIL  Blue Wire

The LOW BAKE (Yellow Wire) connects to the Normally Open contact of the LOW BROIL Relay
so as not to be able to turn them both on at the same time.

I'll have to play with it a bit more to make SURE it will do what I want, but if not, do you know of a source for the individual relays? Replacing the whole circuit board runs about $300 so I know I won't be doing that.

Thanks

if you posted the part numbers off the Relays ... it's been done before...

but it's the LOW BROIL that dosen't connect directly to the Black Wire....

If you're having problems with one of the BAKE Elements, that may be another problem...
