Gas Oven Broil Burner Not Working

Cause:

  • Defective glow coil igniter
  • Defective bimetal valve
  • Loose or broken connection between components
  • Defective thermostat
  • No power
  • No gas
  • 18" oven does not have Broil function

Core Issue:

  • What causes a gas oven infrared broiler not to ignite?
  • Broiler not igniting or ignition delayed
  • Gas broil element has no heat, is not heating, does not turn on, or is not working
  • Delayed ignition
  • Broiler igniter continues to click with or without ignition

Steps to Verify Issue:

  1. If a gas smell is present, turn off the burner, wait two minutes, and try to light it again.
  2. Initial ignition on a new unit can take up to one minute for ignition; this is considered normal.
  3. Ensure knobs are in correct location. The 18" oven knob will not have "Broil" on it.
  4. If a gas oven broil burner is not igniting or if a gas odor is present without ignition, discontinue use until repaired.
