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.

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.

Broiler element doesn't work


Reseating the Element The broiler is heated using an electric element which should be clipped in to the top of the broiler enclosure. If this has come loose then it might not be making contact with the necessary terminals. Try to reseat the terminal but before doing so you must ensure that the electricity is turned off.
Testing the Element The element is what heats up and cooks the food in the broiler. Over time the heat can damage the broiler element. These elements are supported by stand-offs and if the element burns out or becomes damaged then this can be a common reason why the broiler isn't working.
The easiest way to test whether this is working is to turn the broiler on and look at the element. If it is working correctly then the element should be glowing red.
Another slightly more complicated test for the broiler element is to remove the element from the oven and disconnect it. Then use a multimeter to check the continuity of the element. Set the multi-meter to measure resistance and then put it either side of the element. The normal measurement should be between 20 and 40 ohms. If the element is infinitely resistant then this means it's broken and will need to be replaced.
Testing Oven Controls Another reason why the broiler will fail to work is because of problems with the oven controls. A thermostat is used to set the temperature of the broiler, and the oven selector controls are used to control the setting of the broiler.
Turn the oven controls on to see whether the broiler is working properly. If not the controls can be removed and tested using a multimeter. Check the outputs to ensure that the controls are working correctly.
These can also be replaced if required by fitting a replacement part designed specifically for your oven.

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.

Broiler doesn't turn on completely


The top element should come on when Broiler is selected. If both ovens have a broiler mode, then look for something failed in the circuit for the broiler heating elements (it's unlikely both broiler elements would fail together.). If there is only 1 oven with a broiler, look for a failed broiler element.

THE GAS BROILER ON THE BIG OVEN WILL NOT LIGHT.


RKLentz11,

TYPICALLY for safety reasons... Hot surface ignitions will only attempt to light a FEW times and then locks out...

As you already know these things have EXPLOSIVE CAPABILITIES...

TECHNICALLY you can USUALLY reset the gas flow
by cutting the power and restoring power...

IT IS AN EXTREMELY UNWISE thing to do without
placing a NEW... WORKING hot surface igniter...

The hot surface should be GLOWING before the
gas starts...

Do yourself a favor and forget about touching it to
see if it is warm... even BROKEN it has line current
flowing to it and EVERYTHING around it is grounded...

((read PAINFUL at best)).

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.

Broiler won't turn off. Error code F-3


The broiler won't turn off even when you press the "Off/cancel" button? It sounds like the broiler control relay is stuck shut. The F3 code means the oven temperature sensor has failed, this probably happened because the oven got too hot when the broiler was stuck on. There is fail-safe thermal fuse that will blow if the oven gets too hot, so the oven won't melt down but you should leave the unit off so you don't blow the fuse.

To fix the relay, you will have to replace the oven control module. I think this is about $200 and not too hard to replace if you are somewhat handy. The temperature sensor is also serviceable, you can find parts at Appliance Parts Pros on the web. Hopefully you haven't thrown the range out yet, let me know if you need further assistance.
