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.

Broiler element heats up but smoke comes from behind where element it plugs into


Hello Paul;

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

You either have grease burning, insulating material burning or a short in the electrical wiring behind your oven back wall.

Do not use your broiler until the issue is fixed.

Turn the power off at your breaker box. Pull the oven out so you can get behind it. Remove the back cover and assets the problem.

Go into the following website, put in your model number and you will get diagrams, part numbers and cost. If you need a part, record the part number and search the internet for best price.

Oven element


model T, either you have a stuck or shorted broil keypad or the relay on the board is welded closed. Try this, remove the back panel behind the control panel. Make sure the breaker is off to the range. Unplug the keypad ribbon cable to the main board. Power the unit back up. You should get an error code. Now if the broiler still comes on you know you have a welded broiler relay on the board. If the broiler doesn't come on..it's the keypad. Catriver.

Indesit oven keeps heating


Tappan gas range, TGF334BCWB. I can NOT stop the broiler burner from lighting. I have unplugged the 110 power and I light top burner with a striker. However when stove is plugged in to the power the broiler burner lights and continues to burn. The oven knob is turned OFF. The only way to stop the broiler is to unplug the power.

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

Upper oven broiler element broken. Need to remove and replace


Yes you can replace it yourself. Make sure the breaker is off or the oven is un-plugged. When elements fail and burn out they will not stop until they have burned out completely.
The elements in this stove are simply held in place by a couple of quarter in head screws and the wires that connect to them are the push on connector type. There may be a support bar as well that you will need to remove as well to get the element out.
You can do this!
Good luck!

let me understand, you p[lug in you oven and the broiler will automaticalle start??? not allowing you to cancel???? if that s the case unplug and remove the back panel from tyhe range, sound sas if the wire leading to the broil ignitor has shorted itself against the cabinet of the range itself, look for whiter braided wires at broiler hieght, chances arte they are hitting against hte cabinet right near the vent area.

The problem is caused by a shorted BROIL relay on the Electronic Oven Control board. I have experienced this problem before. The oven will continue to heat because it's being provided a constant power source. You are right to assume the reason for the oven temp error. This is common too.

Here's a TEMPORARY fix you can try:

1. Secure power to the range and remove the back panel from the console.
2. Unplug the BROIL element wires from the EOC and wrap them with electrical tape. It should be marked on the circuit card.

This will leave your broiler out of service, but you should be able to use the bake function. This should only be a TEMPORARY fix. The real fix is to replace the EOC. In the mean time, DO NOT leave the range plugged in while not in use (especially, if you are not going to be home, or while sleeping). This could be a definite fire hazard. If you post back with your model number (located around the oven door, or bottom drawer opening) I can give you an idea of how much the EOC would cost, and give you advice on how to replace it.
