Heater elements don't have any colors on the terminals. They will work any way you connect them.
In general, wires are always connected to wires of the same color.
I am concerned that you may be doing something other than replacing the broiler element. If so, it is very important to return the machine to the way you found it. If you can't remember what that was, you should call a professional repair technician.

Good luck!

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.

Broiler will not come on when baking


Take a look at the element ( the "tube" inside the oven that glows red hot when the oven is turned on). If the element is burned out it will not be hot and glowing. You may have a loose connection to the element but most likely it is burned out and needs replacing.
Our stove is 27 years old and I have had to replace top or bottom elements every 6 years or so. I just bought a replacement element at Canadian Tire in Calgary for about $34. Just undo the 2 screws around the element and attach the new element to the old wires.
Good Luck -I hope this works for you

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

normally theres 2 wires on the right side spade lug looking in from the oven front where it plugs in and both of the bake elements have a black wire on the spades and the right side has 2 wires off that terminal,but to simplify the correct connection take a volt-meter (NOT connecting the element) and connect to the single black wire on the left spade on the element on one meter probe and connect the right side to the other wires at a time and then switch on the oven and broiler at separate times and see which wires read 240volts when that switch is energized at that time

You probably know this, but on an oven unit there has to be two different phases of 120 to make it work. Check the wires that attach to the oven unit to make sure that you have 240 when in oven mode. If you have only 120, find out which wire is not hot and trace it to its source. Is it miswired at the other end? Is it shorted to one of the broiler wires? Usually there is a schematic to show how the oven is wired. Check for anything that is common to both oven and broiler wires and make sure the wires are on the right terminals. With out seeing the sove it is hard to know what it going on. Hope that helps. Robin

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.

Screen displays error code f3e2


This code means "BAKE/BROIL range over temperature"
Problem is in either temperature sensor or the control board. Check the temp sensor and wiring from it to the control board first (connector #3, contacts 8 and 10, violet wires) . At room temperature the temp sensor resistance should be around 1080 Ohms. Also check temp sensor for short to ground. If no problems found with the sensor - replace control board.
OBTW - for the broil problem - check the fuse inline with the broil element (continuity between Conn #2, wire 1, blue and conn #4, wire 3, red). It should read several ohms. Good luck!
