Your boiler’s crucial role in baking, roasting, and broiling immediately becomes obvious when it breaks down. Why isn’t the broiler on my GE oven working? Use these instructions that outline the issue and a fix to troubleshoot a GE oven broiler that isn’t operating.
Four reasons for a GE Oven Broiler not working
To ignite the gas in the burner assembly, the igniter glows. Watch the igniter closely as the oven heats up to see whether it’s broken. It is a sign that the igniter is insufficient to ignite the gas if it burns for more than 90 seconds without starting the flame. Replace the igniter if it is weak.
Element to Broil
Perhaps the broiler element burned out. The broil element shines brightly red when it is appropriately heated. If the element does not glow bright red, heating is not occurring. The element will frequently be clearly damaged if it has burned out. Look for any cracks or blisters on the broil element. Using a multimeter, check the element for continuity to see if the broil element has burned out. Replace the broil element if it lacks continuity.
Thermostat for regulating temperature
The temperature of the broiler is controlled by the thermostat. The broiler element might not get heated if the thermostat is broken. The thermostat in the oven cannot be fixed; you must replace it if it is broken.
The oven’s control panel
According to user settings and sensor input, relays on the oven control board send voltage to the bake and broil circuits. The broil element may not get voltage if the control board is broken. This is rarely the case, though. Test each heating component before replacing the control board. The oven control board cannot be easily tested, therefore if you think it may be faulty, you will need to replace it.
