Alright what you will need to do is to pull out the unit and unplug it and take the back off the range and look for any bad wires going to the broil element. Also inspect broil element for damage.

ok, the tan wire coming from the right side of the broiler element goes into a connection on the backside of the stove, this connection piece looks like a capacitor, sensor or something, brown ceramic disc. this is broken
Expert:  Sean F. replied 8 months ago.

If it is broken then you need to replace it. Its grounded out causing it to stay on.
