Other Causes and Conditions

Loose or Burnt Wire Connection

If there is an oven broiler problem, there might be a burnt wire supplying power to the broil element. Sometimes the wire supplying power to the element burns out right near the element itself. Check for this by just looking at the wires leading to the element. If they're burned out it is usually easy to spot.

Oven Control Board - Part # 1086191 Mfg Part # WB27T10469

Oven Control Board

RepairClinic Item # 1086191

The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. An oven broiler problem is usually caused by one of the heating components. However, if the oven control board is bad, it might not send voltage to the heating components. To determine what is causing the oven broiler problem, first test the simpler components in the circuit. The oven control board can't be tested easily and will have to be replaced if it is defective.

Oven Thermostat - Part # 251863 Mfg Part # WB20K8

Oven Thermostat

RepairClinic Item # 251863

The oven thermostat regulates the broiler temperature. If there is an oven broiler problem the oven thermostat might be defective. The oven thermostat has a thin copper tube attached to a slightly thicker tube which sticks into the oven. Inside this tube is a type of hydraulic fluid. As the broiler temperature rises the fluid expands which puts pressure on a small activator inside the thermostat and shuts off the heat. As the broiler cools, the pressure reduces and the activator allows the broiler to heat. The oven thermostat is difficult to test and is not repairable. If this is the cause of the problem the oven thermostat will have to be replaced.

Look at other, more common components before replacing these.
