Broiler turned on by itself and won't turn off

Just today, when I turned the overn off, the broiling element turned on and stayed on. The range of course became very hot. No combination of oven or broiler controls would turn it off. I had to disconnect the range to turn it off and the broiler immediately turned back on when the range was re-connected. This seems very dangerous since it could cause a house fire.

The broiler element comes on by itself when the power is on--it will not turn off unless I turn the power off at the breaker. The bottom element does not come on at all. I get no codes on the display


You have a bad broil-element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) - the contacts have welded shut (closed). You will need to replace the EOC.

Oven element


model T, either you have a stuck or shorted broil keypad or the relay on the board is welded closed. Try this, remove the back panel behind the control panel. Make sure the breaker is off to the range. Unplug the keypad ribbon cable to the main board. Power the unit back up. You should get an error code. Now if the broiler still comes on you know you have a welded broiler relay on the board. If the broiler doesn't come on..it's the keypad. Catriver.

Will the oven work without the broiler attached


You could use the oven without the broiler. It is customary that the oven will use the broil element to even out the heat in the oven for better baking but you could use if. it just may not bake evenly. There could be two things that is causing the broil element to stay energized. the control is not shutting down or there is a short to ground in the broil element. Have the broil element tested, it could just need replacing. If it is in the control that is a bigger problem.

Broiler element doesn't heat

Oven Won Turn on

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

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

Broiler element stays on. I had to trip the


a wire in the back of your stove is grounded... open rear panel after unplugging and look for burnt wires going to the element. the wires will be a higher grade than most..
most likely there is no problem with the broil element itself, but the problem could possibly be located in the oven switch (if it is not digital)

Broiler won't turn off even after unplugging and plugging back in.


Check to make sure your broil element is not grounding out causing the element to always stay on when power is applied.

You would need to turn off your house breaker to your oven and check for continuity with an ohm meter between each of your 2 broil element terminals and ground.

GE Electric Stove Broiler doesn't stay on


If the door is closed the broil element will cycle off an on normally. It should stay on most of the time if the door is in the broil position (partially open). If your range has an electronic control it will probably also have a hi and low broil setting. On low broil it will cycle off an on even with the door open but more with the door closed

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??
