Three possibilities:

2. Wiring problem to broil element.
3. Electronic controller failure (this can be repaired).

Broiler will not work on a whirlpool range rf367lxsyo


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.

Does the element pass the short test? Check between the element leads and anywhere on the element except the other lead. If you get a circuit, its shorted. When you say power to element OK, are you getting 220Vac? If yes its OK, if not, its not OK.

Why doesn't GE JBP24 preheat?


Not familiar with this exact range, but it could be a couple of things.

If the broiler (upper) element heats properly and the baking (lower) element works properly, then the issue is probably in the controller/preheat switch.

If the broiler doesn't heat up, then the upper heating element.may need to be replaced.

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?


Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

GE XL44 Oven and stovetop work - broiler does not work


The broiler is the top element in the oven. Look at it. Bad ones sometimes have burnt into or have a melted spot. If it looks ok take it out by removing the screws at the back and pull the wires out a little and unplug the element. With an ohm meter it should show continuity. Replace it if any of these things apply.

Kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat


if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,
ttfn
