OK first see if the broiler works, if not then you need to pull the unit out of the wall and remove the back panel and check the limit switch on the back to see if it is open. That is part #157 at this link. If it is open, meaning no continuity then you need to replace it. CLICK HERE PIC and CLICK HERE PART
