Why won't my oven turn off?

Oven won’t stop heating? These parts could be the cause.

Does your oven continue to heat even after you have switched it off? An overheating oven can be a real danger in your kitchen, but we’ll help you respond rapidly. Read our diagnostic guide to understand why your oven is overheating and how our professionals can resolve the problem—either virtually or in person.

1. Bake or broil element

A damaged baking or broiling element is usually visibly apparent, with holes, cracks, and blistering. Damage to the heating elements can also cause issues with voltage being improperly directed from the control board. In this case, we recommend bringing in a skilled technician for repair.

2. Oven control board

The oven control board can cause your oven to heat inconsistently because of relay shortages and power sources continuously sending voltage. The control board relies on its sensors to correctly output energy, so inconsistent heating may be a sign that the control board needs to be repaired or replaced.

3. Dials, knobs, and switches

Sometimes there may be a physical issue with your oven controls—dials, knobs, and switches—that could be forcing a constant surge of power. Call an expert to inspect your oven’s controls, so they can diagnose whether you need simple maintenance or to replace any parts.

4. Temperature control thermostat

Too much heat can damage your oven’s thermostat, melting its electrical contacts to the point where it will continually read the wrong temperature. At this point the thermostat cannot be repaired, so we recommend a replacement.
