Broiler works intermittantly

When I turn the broiler on, many times it never comes on, or it might get barely warm, but never hot. If I keep turning it off and back on, sometimes it will go on, and get hot as you would normally expect, but then it goes off. Any suggestions on what could be wrong.

Re: Broiler works intermittantly

It sounds like you have an intermittent disconnection either because of a dirty contact on or in the switch or something loose like a wire or the element contacts, maybe not plugged in all the way--possibly greased and dirty. If you feel comfortable try moving stuff around with the switch on and see if anything makes it change -- otherwise get somebody knowledgeable with a test meter.

Kenmore elite stove model #7909912949B. Can get anything to work on oven. Light comes one. Nothing else in the enter panel. Top burners work.

Can you enter the oven temp and press start on the control panel? Do you hear it click on, but it just does not get hot? Try turning on the broiler and see if the broiler gets hot.

My whirlpool SF265LXTS oven turns on properly, but the oven itself isn't getting hot. The gas stove top and broiler both work fine.

It sounds like you might have a clogged burner plate or manifold. You should call a certified gas repair service. This could be very dangerous, even deadly.

Oven wont heat broiler wont heat

is this a gas or electric range. If it is gas it sounds like a flame sensor is not working. The oven will try to fire up, but if it does not sence a flame, it will shut off again to keep the range from filling with raw gas. Also the easy one, is the gas turned on?

Viking pro. gas range/oven leaks when all knobs turned off

check both oven ignitor and broiler by turning the oven first, and time the time that the ignitor takes before the flame lights up, it should not take more then 60 to 70 seconds, and do the same to the broiler.the one that takes the longer passing that mark of the 70 seconds needs replacing it 's not getting hot enough to light the burner on time that's the one that passes gas with out igniting. replace that one.
