If your BAKE function works, but the BROIL does not come on, more than likely you have a bad igniter on your broiler. The igniter is a glow bar type that comes in two basic shapes. One is round, and one is square. The round type igniter should draw between 2.7 to 3.2 amps of current to be considered good, while the square type igniter will draw 3.2 to 3.7 amps. The reason it is important to mention this is because, it is not uncommon for an igniter to still glow. and be bad. The igniter is designed to draw the required amount of current in order for the gas valve to open. Once the valve opens, you have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free-flowing gas from accumulating without ignition. An easy way to check is to remove the broil cover and turn the broiler on to see if you have any activity out of the igniter. If the igniter does not glow at all, a resistance reading can easily determine if the igniter is bad. It should read avery low resistance if good. If the igniter glows, but the gas valve never opens, take a current reading. If you can provide me with your EXACT model number (located somewhere around the oven door/lower drawer opening, or on the back of the range) I can track down a part number for. I hope this information is helpful to you.

SOURCE: oven wont heat to temp its displaying no codes,

Generally speaking, if an electric oven isn't reaching the correct temperature it's usually the element or the thermostat to blame. This tips should help you diagnose what's causing the problem:

If the bake element isn't heating at all or if when it's turned on it starts tripping breakers and blowing fuses than it's probably the element that needs to be replaced. Here's our guide to how to replace a fan oven element:

If the element is heating but the oven temperature isn't accurate for where it should be than it could be the thermostat. You can test these hypothesis out with certainity by testing the continuity of both the element & the thermostat.

You should also visually ***** to make sure that there isn't any loose wiring in your cooker.

Obviously before playing around with the cooker make sure that it's unplugged and drained of residual electricy.

It appears your Ignitor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Oven wont heat up

Most likely the problem will be in the control unit. Something is stopping the relays for the oven and broiler from working.
