I replaced the lower bake element. When I turned oven on, it immediately tripped the fuse. I turned fuse back on, now the oven heats up and continues to heat up...I turn it off after it passes 500 or so... I also replaced the temperature sensor. still the oven heats up and doesn't stop. the upper oven works fine. Could it be the hi-limit thermostat?

Sally for Model Number MER6775AAS

ANSWER Hello Sally, The high limit will cause the unit to shut down when it reaches a certain temp. The clock assembly W10166967 would be the most likely cause. Relay on the control sticking open.
