If you have an electric range, you should leave the door set to the part way open position (about 4 inches) when broiling, and the top (broil element) normally stays red hot the entire time then.
This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.

I have a Maytag glass top stove are the burns suppose to turn off and on while I am cooking on it or just stay on all the time? Please someone help me with this.

i used a glass top cooker just recently and I noticed the same effect
the cooking process was not interrupted so I would say that it is part of the energy saving characteristic of the glass top cooker where once the set thermostat setting is reached, the burner is switched off until the thermostat turns it back on again
the glass top cookers are advertised as more energy efficient than the coils and solid plate so discuss this with a retailer or service agent to ensure that there is no faults in the unit

I have a Kenmore Range Model # 970-5060 and the top element will not work on bake but will on Broil. What is the problem?

No problem - that's the way it is supposed to work.
Note: in some ranges/ovens, the broil (upper) element is a little bit of the time to help even out temperatures, but it will not glow red.

Dcs 484 oven won't light but ingition bar glows bright

Yep, that's a common problem with these stoves. The igniter has a limited lifespan. You will need to call and order another igniter and probably have someone install it.

When the broil function is off, check for continuity between the broiler relay output terminals. If there is no continuity, check for an external short. If there is continuity when the broiler is supposed to be off, you need to replace or repair the board.You can get your old board repaired at

Frigidaire range model #FEFLFSA, is the top element

When you say Top Element, I assume you mean the TOP OVEN ELEMENT, correct? You have bake, and broil? Bake is usually on the bottom, and broil is the top. In order to have the oven operate correctly, the top and bottom elements may come on at start, in order to do as you just said, "Preheat the oven". This will insure an even distribution of the heat in the oven box and result in better cooking expierences. I would not be alarmed or concerned if the top element came on for a short period to pre-heat in preparation for cooking. This is normal. If the top element stayed on, and did not shut off on bake after the pre-heat period, then I would say you have a control board problem. However, if it comes on and then goes out, except when you are broiling, then I would say that this is normal for your stove, and the pre-heat mode of operations. Your owners manual should advise you of this very process in the guide section to how to use the oven. I hope this helps and that all your cakes, pies, souffle's and the like are......delicious. I'm sure they are. I hope this helps and eases your concerns. Kindest regards, Slats.

My kitchenAid YKERC607 oven is not working. The surface cook areas are working. The display is working. Checked fuse l/b relay -ok. Supply is ok. Is it the power board? 3 years before this the whole...

to ask another question does the broil work but not bake or are they both not working? have you done a self clean in some models after you have done a self clean there is a fuse at the back of the oven that pops causeing both bake and broil not to work. So it is possible for the control board to be bad usually there are 2 relays on the board one for bake and one for broil when you look at the board... usualy there are 2 red wires going to the relay and the relay is marked bake/broil. check straight across with a volt meter and see if you have voltage after you have selected bake. if you have voltage there you have a bad board if you have no voltage there that means that the realy is closeing and sending voltage to your heaters but before it gets to your heaters it goes to a thermal fuse. you can also check straight at your element and see if you have 240v if you do you have a bad heater. i hopes this helps if you have any other questions pls let me know
