Most ovens have a broiler burner on the "ceiling" of the oven and a baking burner on the "floor" of the oven.

Depends whether your oven is gas or electric. If electric, it's most likely the way hla described above. If it's a gas burner, likely there's a separate unit either above or below your oven.

Turn your stove setting onto broil and feel where the most heat is coming from.

Look at your owner's manual.

Have you tried cranking it up to its highest setting and then sticking your head inside? Here's something I learned from recently purchasing a new gas range; broiler pans are no longer standard equipment. They have to be purchased separately even from the top appliance makers.

@ChefJune, not necessarily. My gas range has the broiler unit in the top of the oven cavity, and on the "bake" setting, the flame is on the bottom. I think only the really older gas models had a separate broiler drawer.
