One of the elements that an oven has is the broil. This heating element can be found at the top of the oven, producing very high heat for broiling if this is not working or cannot produce the heat needed. A faulty broiler indicates a failed electronic control board or thermostat. You can also do a visual inspection for signs that the element has some blisters or is separated. If the element has no sign of damage or appears normal, you can check for its continuity using a multimeter.
Another possible reason the electric broiler doesn’t produce the heat needed is when the broil element is burned out. When your Viking oven, for example, and its broiler is not working, a burned-out element may be the main cause. A functioning broiler typically glows red with heat. But, the high heat can also damage the elements such as blistering and breakage. When this happens, you will be able to see the damage, as well as uneven heating, or the broiler itself is no longer producing the heat needed. In this type of situation, repairing the heating element is impossible. Instead, it must be replaced for it to be fixed.
The Temperature Control Thermostat helps to regulate the broiler temperature. If the said component is defective, it may cause the broiler to be unable to produce the heat. The oven thermostat is not repairable, and if the thermostat is faulty, this needs to be replaced.
If you are unsure what causes the electric broiler not to be able to heat, it is best to have it checked properly using the right tools and equipment to properly determine what causes the issue.
