Why won't the broiler turn off?

Hello Cathy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I am afraid I have bad news for you. This is an expensive repair. I am sure it is not your thermostat. I wish it was that simple.

If you have to turn off the main breaker to shut off power to your unit, there are only two components that control where the power goes to your unit.

1.) Electric Built-in Oven Black Membrane Switch
Note how close on the lower left how close the select buttons for both the, "Bake" and "Broil" are.

This component is connecter directly to:
2.) Range Electronic Oven Control Board Part #: 8303885 Cost: $220.00
25695417-guxvworl0v2zgxzjtpf0vne4-4-2.jpg The cost is based on Sears parts. You can purchase them over the internet for slightly less.

Only one of these parts is bad. I can not tell you which one without my physically disassembling and testing them.

If I were still working for Sears Home Services or A & E Factory Services and I came to your home. The service call cost would be the part cost X 2, or lets say $220.00 x 2 = $440.00 plus about $200.00 labor, or a bill of $640.00.

The rule of thumb is; " If the cost of repair is 1/3 or more of the original purchase price, buy new".

May I suggest, you go into the internet and search, "Sears Outlet Store". This is a scratch and dent store. You can save hundreds of dollars on a new oven. You also receive a one year warrantee on the appliance.

I wish I could have been more help to you.

How much should it cost for my element in my oven to be fixed i have the element just the instalation needs diong

This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

Oven not working - rest of appliance fine

It is most likely that the oven heating element has failed and will need to be replaced.

This not an overly expensive part to have replaced and should be much less than the cost of buying a new oven although you would need to compare actual costs in your area.

Oven gets far too hot

It would suggest to me that the oven thermostat is not working for one reason or another. I would recommend that you have a new one fitted.
The cost can vary hugely depending on the make of oven, and the type of thermostat fitted
Best to ring around, and get some quotes
Hope this helps..

Oven not heating up

If the oven fan is working o/k, then all you need to do is replace the oven element, a straightforward repair, and cost effective, if no fan, then could be expensive.

Had an element go on my Technika T948/1 oven, had it replaced by an independent tec. Now the temp control does not cut out when it hits the desired temp, hence the oven now just burns everything. I rang...

Call the Company and ask them they can tell you, But the element is a long way off from the thermostat however the thermal bulb may have got bumped out of the way. The element is just a two wire or three wire element, you could call the Tech and ask if he might have moved the temperature sensor bulb and see what he says. You also have to understand his side of it to, many people try to get something for nothing and try to blame the tech's work. When you do this you put him on the defense and you won't get much help, he has to eat too and with the price of fuel now days driving out and fixing your problem is going to cost money. Try not blaming his work and ask him to explain it to you, you might be surprised at his response.

It sounds exactly the same as I am experiencing on my oven of the same model. My theory is that the full flame gas is controlled by a thermostat, and that this has broken hence why the oven only stays on preheat. This will be a matter of a replacement part. Most likely the thermostat is a bi-metal strip that, because it has heated and cooled so many times in it's life it has simply finally given up. Try searching online for the correct part and get a corgi registered fitter or another suitably qualified fitter to come and replace it.
