Cause 4Loose 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 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.
