My broiler igniter has gone out once in my 8 yo ERD30. The tech was nice enough to tell me how to replace it myself when it went out again, and so it has. So now I'm looking for the part online! Check out the thread here: http://applianceguru.com/forum1/12935.html

Likely the broiler flame sensor. After stove lights the flame sensor is heated and signals control board that broiler is lit. No signal from flame sensor is interpreted as no flame, so controller shuts down broiler and attempts to relight. Could also be failed control board.
is this a gas or electric range. If it is gas it sounds like a flame sensor is not working. The oven will try to fire up, but if it does not sence a flame, it will shut off again to keep the range from filling with raw gas. Also the easy one, is the gas turned on?
either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees
see the next steps and proceed according with commong sense: God bless you Usually,
when an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned
out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick
tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, the element glows
red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may
last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns
out, you need to replace it. To determine if the heating element is
burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of thi
any food with an oil base will catch fire on a heating element, it will be fine to use but try to keep food from spilling out towards any heat source, use a try to collect any food drippings or a tray with vents if doing potatoes this will minimize any food dripping on the elements. it will smell for a while on the first cook as the oil will still be present on the element but it will soon burn off.
