Oven Broiler Problem

Some common reasons as to why your broiler is malfunctioning could be:

The broiler element may have burned out. The broil element glows red hot when it is functioning properly. If the element does not glow red, this indicates that it is not heating. It’s possible that if the element has burnt out, it will be visibly damaged. Check for holes or blisters in the broil element.

The broiler temperature is controlled by a temperature control thermostat. If the thermostat malfunctions, it may fail to heat the broiler element. The oven thermostat is not repairable—if the thermostat goes bad, you must replace it.

One of the wires to the broil element or igniter burner may be damaged. Near the heating component, these wires are frequently burned out. Examine the wires that lead to the element or igniter for signs of a burnt wire. If a wire is charred, it is usually readily visible.

The oven control board has relays that send power to the bake and broil circuits depending on user preferences and sensor input. If the control board is faulty, it may not provide power to the broil element.
