Most Frequent Causes for Oven won't turn off

Cause 1Oven 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 one of the control board relays shorts closed, the control board may send continuous voltage to the heating circuit. If the oven continues to heat after it is turned off, the control board is likely defective. If the control board is defective, replace it.

Cause 4Bake Element

Sometimes, if the heating element burns out, it can short out to the inside of the oven. If the heating element has shorted out, the oven will not turn off. Often, if the bake element has shorted out, it will be visibly damaged. Inspect the heating element for holes or blisters. To determine if the bake element has shorted out, use a multimeter to test the element for continuity. If the bake element does not have continuity, replace it.
