You do not say it is electric oven. if so broil element requires 240 vac. may be controlled by relay. Is bake element working? also controls for broil may be different setting if digital panel is in this design. I think same sensor may be used for bake or broil.

you do not say if gas oven, electric oven, single or double oven or if digital panel control, a little more information would help.

if you have digial voltmeter, FULLY disconnect electric power and measure element on terminals. probably less than 15-20 ohms for a good element.

Oven element good but does not heat even though broil workes with temp sensor


Hello Billy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

First, your broiler is not connected to your oven thermocouple (Temperature sensor). When you turn on your broiler full load amps go into the broiler element with no adjustment.


There are only three components that control your oven operation:

1.) Heater Element - Inspect your heating element for cracks, sparking or corrosion on the two contacts on the back wall.

2.) Thermocouple - This is a temperature sensor inside your oven. It is about the diameter of a coat hanger wire. Either it comes straight out of the back upper wall or is mounted on the back wall.
It is disconnected and removed from the upper back of the oven.
You should get a meter reading of 1000-1100 Ohms if the component is good.

3.) Oven Control - The control communicates with the thermocouple and increases or decreases the amps to the oven heating element. If the thermocouple is good then the oven control needs to be replaced.

If in unsure, replace them both.

Recently, I replace a digital oven control for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00 for the control. I purchased a remanufactured oven control over the internet for $30.00.

Get the oven model number off your oven. It is on a metal tag on the face of the oven after you open the door.

Go into the following website. Put in your oven model number (on the left). You will get diagrams and parts part numbers. Record these numbers for the above components. Put the part number in your computer search engine and search best price.

CAUTION: If you replace a electrical control board GROUND YOURSELF by touching something that is bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a control board.

Broiler will not work on a whirlpool range rf367lxsyo


the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.

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.

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

When I turn my oven on bake the broiler element runs and eventuly the f2 codes comes on.


your oven uses fboth the broiler element and the oven element during baking. Since you know the broiler element works, you most likely will have to replace the oven element.

My oven has increased only 65 degrees in almost an hour....what does it mean when it heats up, but SLOWLEY??


The broiler element on the top of the oven comes on during the preheat cycle to speed things up and then only the lower element keeps the temperature steady. One of those elements is bad, probably the broiler. Try using the broiler and see if it works. If not, you need to disconnect the elements from the oven and check them with an ohm meter. If gthe elements check out ok, then it must be the temperature sensor/thermostat.

The best way for you to check is to swap with other element since they use the same one. FRIST turn the breaker off! Then take out the 2 screws on the element. The wires unplug, make sure they don't go back in the holes or the oven may have to come out to find them. You can pull the element out and take it to a parts house to see if they can check it with a ohm meter for you if you don't want to pull both of them out.

Broiler element not working


It's either the switch that supplys power to the broiler element or it's the element itself (probably the element itself). I'd go after that first as it's not that expensive.

It's not a thermostat because if it was, the bake element wouldn't work either. The broiler element is not supposed to come on except when in the broil mode or cleaning mode.
