The broil relay is shorted on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. I've seen this many times. There is a separate relay model on the board for the bake and broil functions. You can try unplugging the unit, and lightly tap on the relay module to see if its just a stuck relay (believe it or not, sometimes this fixes the problem). There is a wiring diagram inside the operator console to assist you in, and in most cases, the components are identified and printed on the board. Otherwise, you will need to replace the EOC. Let me know if you have further questions, and/or need assistance locating parts. If you DO need a replacement board, please post back with you COMPLETE model number (located on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening). I hope this helps you.

I have a Magic Chef gas oven. The broiler won't turn off. Ihad to shut off the gas and unplug it. Model 3568XVW. Where should I start?


This is usually caused by the main control. The relay for the broiler has likely melted into the on position. Here is a link that should help Replacing oven ERC

Oven will not reach desired temperature and slight gas smell


Just had same problem it was nice it waited until christmas dinner, all i did to resolve the problem was switch the upper broiler igniter with the lower one for the oven. I tuned on the oven & it fired right up i never use the broiler on my oven so itll buy me some time. So if you can get the broiler to light try that but i did have the same low temp. & the smell of gas. Good Luck

The broiler coil heats even when the oven is off.


The oven control is bad, since I do not have your model number I cannot tell what type of control it uses. If you could send me the model number from the tag I could take a look and maybe give you some insight as to what it will take to repair.

Thank you

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.

Oven will not shut off broiler element stays on


The control knob more than likely operates a relay that has gotten stuck in the energized position. If this isn't the case then the Temp sensor or thermostat probably shorted internally. Unplug the unit before attempting any work.

It's your oven temperature sensor. It's a thin metal stick that juts into the oven. It is located on the upper right back wall of the oven cavity. Flip your breaker, slide out the oven. You install it from the back, very simple, two screws, i think. I'm a beginner at DIY and had no problem fixing it.
