Re: broil wont COME on
Doble check the unit wiring, might have a wire out of place
it the display is showing the broil element on then check and see if you have proper voltage at the element, work bat to the board and find the problem

When the broil function is off, check for continuity between the broiler relay output terminals. If there is no continuity, check for an external short. If there is continuity when the broiler is supposed to be off, you need to replace or repair the board.You can get your old board repaired at appliancetimers.com.
I would say you have a stuck relay on your control board. what happens when you unplug and plug back in? does the broiler turn on by itself or do you have to turn it on? Does the broiler cycle on and off or is is constintaly on all the time? Do you have a control board to turn the broiler on or is it a machanical dial? If you have to press a button to turn the broiler on i would say 99% positive you have a stuck relay on your control board. slide range out of the hole remove the back panel to access the control board. you will see these black little boxs on the board and marked on your board you will see bake and broil and both of them have 2 wires on them. on the broil relay should have 2 red wires going to it. unplug power to the range. remove the 2 wires from the relay check continuity accross the relay. you should not have continuity if you do this is the reason your broiler is stuck on. plug thhe wires back in to the board..... And if you feel comfortable enough plug the power back in. with wires plugged into board sett your meter to volts AC. put them straight accross the broil relay. in a normaly off poistion you should read 120 volts. With a bad broil relay in the off position you will read 0volts. try these things and let me know how it goes.
Could be the bake igniter is bad and broil igniter is still good. may need to replace the bake igniter you will need a complete model number off range to determine the part number of the igniteryou may need.
the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??
You can find everything you need and diagrams at http://www3.sears.com/. Just type in the model #. There is no repair manual that I know of. If you need help solving a problem once you have seen the wiring diagram let me know.
