Most Frequent Causes for Oven broiler not working

Cause 1Broil Element

The broiler element may have burned out. When the broil element is heating properly, it glows red hot. If the element does not glow red, this indicates that the element is not heating. Often, if the element has burned out, it will be visibly damaged. Inspect the broil element for holes or blisters. To determine if the broil element has burned out, use a multimeter to test the element for continuity. If the broil element does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 2Loose 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 3Oven 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.
