Re: turn on oven and broiler comes on.
If the broiler burner is the only burner, then it should come on. If there are two burners, chances are the broiler burner comes on to get the oven heated up more quickly. Once near temperature, the other burner maintains temperature.

see the next steps and proceed according with commong sense: God bless you Usually,
when an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned
out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick
tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, the element glows
red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may
last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns
out, you need to replace it. To determine if the heating element is
burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of thi
Somehow, usually when cleaning the face of the clock area, you locked
the oven control. Go into your manual, and it will tell you how to
unlock it. If I remember right, try holding in the broil button for 5
seconds, that might take it out of the lock mode.
We had a similar issue. The problem was the igniter going bad, but still working "somewhat".
I think when you are putting the lock on, you might be going into self-cleaning mode, where the broiler comes on as well. The broiler has its own igniter, so that would be igniting the gas.
do you have voltage? you have to have 240 volts if you only have 120 this might happen check your breaker. does your bake element work? if neither bake or broil work always check the breaker first and let me know
F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked - If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit
F2 Note: Also see fan thermal switches - Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation. · Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode. · Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode. · Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem.
· Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode). · Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc. · Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.
the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??
