I cannot see the thermal limiter. The back is off and I've searched the whole backplane. How far above the terminal block is it? 6 inches, 12 inches? more? I know it should be there but I can't see it.

Todd for Model Number mer5755qcb

ANSWER Todd, Your range does not have a "thermal limiter". Your range may or may not have a "high limit" switch (most "free standing" ranges don't. but here's a little help " Oven High Limit NOTE: Requires removal of oven from installation position. 1. Turn off power to unit. 2. Remove lower rear access panel. 3. Disconnect and label wire terminals connected to limit switch. 4. Remove screws securing high limit switch. 5. Reverse procedure to reinstall switches." If the high limit opens it will shut off power to the control/clock, and resets when the switch has cooled down..
