How To Fix A Oven That Doesn't Heat When Broiling

The hardest part of any range repair is figuring out what part you need. Use our expert help to diagnose your appliance just like a pro!
Broiler Element
You’ll find the broiler on the roof of your oven. Because of the fact that it produces high heat to broil foods, it’s prone to blistering or separation, so check for that first. If there aren’t any visual signs of disrepair, unplug the oven and use a multi-meter to check for electrical continuity. To do this, take the back panel off the oven, find the terminals for the broiler, and while you’re there, check the wiring and terminals to see if they’ve overheated or gotten damaged. Should you find broken wiring or terminals, you’ll need to repair or replace them. If your check reveals no continuity for the element, simply replace it. If continuity was detected, then you may be entering the territory of the licensed electrician or appliance technician where live voltage checks need to be performed. There may be a problem with the thermostat for the oven, the electronic element, or the fuse, if your oven has fuses.

With an oven that has internal fuses, a fuse can blow when there are problems with wiring or other components. First, unplug the range or oven, and then find the fuse that is blown. The fuses are usually labeled, so you can track down which circuit has a problem in its components and/or a short in its wiring that caused that particular fuse to blow. Don’t bother to change the fuse until you know the cause of the problem, and when you do change the fuse, make sure the new one is of the same rating as the original.
