Most Frequent Causes for Oven broiler not working

Cause 1Igniter

The igniter glows to ignite the gas in the burner assembly. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter as the oven is heating. If the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to ignite the gas. If the igniter is weak, replace it.

Cause 3Loose or Burnt Wire Connection

One of the wires that supply power to the broil element or broil burner igniter might be burned out. These wires commonly burn out near the heating element. To determine if a wire has burned out, inspect the wires leading to the element or igniter. If a wire is burned out, it will often be visibly burnt.

Cause 4Oven Control Board

The oven control board has relays that send voltage to the bake and broil circuits according to the user settings and sensor input. If the control board is defective, it may not send voltage to the broil element. However, this is rarely the case. Before replacing the control board, first test all of the heating components. Since it’s not easy to test the oven control board, you will have to replace it if you suspect it's defective.

Cause 5Safety Valve

The safety valve works with the oven igniter to provide gas to the burner. If the safety valve fails, the oven won’t heat. It is very uncommon for a safety valve to fail. Before replacing the safety valve, first test all of the more commonly defective oven components, particularly the igniter. If all of the other heating components are working properly, use a multimeter to test the safety valve for continuity. If the safety valve does not have continuity, replace it.
