Does the unit bake and broil?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Broiler does not seem to work. Bake is fine.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

If the broiler does not work it will not self clean properly, now are you just trying to self clean it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will go back to the old fashioned way.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yes sometimes that is easiest and actually easier on the unit as the temps reach 1000 degrees during self clean and can cause other failures.
