Broiling is the method of exposing the food to high temperatures for a short period. The heat comes from the oven’s top heating element. If it doesn’t broil, the issue could be in the broiler burner igniter or electronic oven control board in the gas oven.

There are reasons why the broiler won’t work, the following are:

Burned out Broiled Element

If the broiler is not working, the main reason can be due to the defective broil element. A working broiler will glow in red and in the heat but the high heat can also cause a blistering and breakage of the component. You may notice this with the visible damage and the uneven heating of the broiler. This component can be repaired by a professional technician. 

Problem with the Igniter

For a long time, the igniter can weaken and would not be able to send signals to the gas valve to open causing the broiler not to ignite. To check, after the appliance has been turned on, check if its igniter glows for 90 seconds without igniting the broiler, this is most likely the igniter is weakened. Replacement needs to be done to work again.

Worn out Bake or Broil Spark Electrode
