    unfortunately that is not the answer. The oven is suppose to heat from the bottom up and the air moves around the oven(convection). Now what is happening is the broiler part of the oven is coming on at any temp. It should only come on if I turn the knob to broil. Ex. cooking a pizza if the broil mechanism comes on the cheese burns but the pizza doesn't cook. the broiler is on top and heats downward.

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.

Check your owner manual to confirm.

    Some thoughts -

    How long do you let the oven heat up before putting the pizza inside? Do you let the oven temp indicator light go off before putting the pizza in?
    What temperature do you set the oven temperature for to cook pizza?

    Depending on your answers above, it may be the temperature controller, and for the problem you state, I would expect the oven temperature to not be controllable. In other words, if you set the temperature for 350 degrees, the oven goes to maybe 550, or when you set the oven for 450, the oven reaches maybe 550.

    Let me know your answers to the above, and I'll see if I can track down a wiring diagram and service manual.

No heat when set to broil but the bake turns on the broil element. nothing turns on the bake element. are the wires hooked back correctly?


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

Maytag oven problem


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.

I have a 4 yr old kenmore glasstop electric range. Problem exists with the broiler as it comes on when I set the oven to bake.


this is normal
about 8 years ago manufactures started to include the broil element in the preheat cycle to heat the oven faster
it should cycle down once the set temp is reached

GE oven, F2 message but fault is with broiler element staying on?


Hi there,

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.

Good Luck

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??
