When I am baking the broiler will come on and burn the top of my cookies or bread. I am baking on the bottom and 3 rd from the bottom rack what can I do to fix this?

    It would be helpful to know what type of stove (electric or gas), as well as the brand or model. Even a picture of the control panel. It could be a setting--in which case someone might be able to help, or it could be working as designed--in which case someone might have advice using this type of oven.

    The broiler should not come on during baking. Do you have a manual or can you search online for product help from the manufacturer?

  • Is it only the top heat coming on? I have an electric stove and both the bottom and the top heat when it’s in ‘bake’ mode

If its electric, just put a rack up top and and put a sheet tray or cookie sheet on that so it blocks the direct heat from the broiler.
