SOURCE: Oven top element gets SUPER hot without warning

the sensor in your oven is picking up the high heat and posting error message which displays F2 ,at least the sensor is working but lets look at the problem isuspect one of two the first is your control switch needs tested i would say this is the problem and number two the elemant could be on its way out either of these problems are going to need a electrican to fix ,sorry i cant give you a simple answer to your problem.adrian

SOURCE: broiler element comes on when "bake" is pressed

does the bake element come on at all?
if so, try the oven out. do a bake @ 350 allow it to pre-heat, and see if once the pre-heat is comlete, id the broil shuts off.
on many ovens at the beginning of the cycle during pre-heat both bake and broil elements are powered.

other than that it may be a control board, or a burnt and crossed wire in the harness.

SOURCE: Oven element will not come on but broiler works

There are three possible defects to conside. In order of likelihood given what you've described...

1) The bake element is defective. You can remove it and check it with an ohm meter. A good one would be roughly 20 to 40 ohms, a bad element has high (or very high) resistance.

2) The oven thermostat. It controls both the bake and broil elements, but has seperate control circuits (contacts) for each. The bake element is used most and most likely to fail. You *can* check for voltage while its operating, but if you aren't sure of what you're doing its an unnecessary danger. If you eliminate the element (#1 above) and the wiring (#3 below) then the thermostat is what you have to replace.

3) The wiring from the thermostat to the bake element could be defective. (I'm sorry, I don't know if your bake element has a socket or just wiring. It is possible for a bad socket to burn and pit the element's contacts and to have to replace both.). This is the least common cause, but if you test the bake element resistance at the thermostat, that includes the wiring, and if the element by itself is good, but not with the wiring then its the wiring. Since the broil element works, the wiring feeding power to the thermostat is good, and the only wiring to check was from the thermostat to the bake element.

SOURCE: GE Oven JKP56...after Self Clean

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Leave the power off remove the screws from under the panel and lift up to open the control panel. There are reset-able fuses in there check them by pressing the center red button if they are ok check the screen in front of the fan make sure its not blocked up it will cause this problem too.If all that is ok then the relay on the control fused closed and you would have to replace the control board with the relays on it.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Oven heats properly, but the broiler element does not heat or even get warm. Controller lights up and says broiler is activated. Galaxy stove with ES100/105 electronic oven control.


Broil element can be tested with a meter by a competent service person or by yourself if you are handy. Be sure unit is unplugged before doing any service yourself. If element tests good, then clock / control will have to be replaced

Will the oven work without the broiler attached


You could use the oven without the broiler. It is customary that the oven will use the broil element to even out the heat in the oven for better baking but you could use if. it just may not bake evenly. There could be two things that is causing the broil element to stay energized. the control is not shutting down or there is a short to ground in the broil element. Have the broil element tested, it could just need replacing. If it is in the control that is a bigger problem.

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.

Whirlpool Range model RF386PXGQ2 broiler won't shut off


Hi.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:

Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.

Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.

Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.

Testing must be done by a trained technician.

When we turn the oven on, it stays at 100 degrees and will not warm up. Also the broiler will turn on.


Most oven controllers have two relays/contactors that turn the elements on and off. Sounds like the relay/contactor that controls the bottom element has failed. The other alternative is a bad element. If you have a ohm meter this can be checked by removing the element and measuring the resistance. If it is shorted or open it is bad. I do not know the resistance reading that is should be however. Good luck!

Oven will not light,broiler will .I set the oven for 350 but it stays at 100


Hi, Is this an electric oven? I will go with it is and you can correct me if I am wrong. I would say the oven element is about had it. If you have a volt meter you can reach back at each side of the element to see if it has voltage you would know for sure. If it is warm at all it has power it is just faulty and needs a new one. There is a screw at each side of the element to remove and it will come out. Turn off breaker first!!.You can get a new one at a appliance parts house to replace it. Keep me posted on how it goes for you. Doing it yourself will save you $$$$.
Sincerely,

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.

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.

Oven will not heat - Thermador SMW272 Electric Oven


since you said the broiler does work , take the wires off the broiler element and put on the bake . then when you put on the broiler the bake should work . the light bulb principle, just remember to wrap all loose wire with electrical tape and disconnect from wall while working.
