Question about Hotpoint Kitchen Ranges
SOURCE: Dim Digital Display
Connie P, Unfortunately it is not possible to make the display brighter. The only solution is to replace the entire clock/timer. The price for the part is less then a hundred dollars and if you will give me the complete model number and a color, I can help you to find the best deal. Gendos...post back

SOURCE: Oven Temperture adjustment
On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher. Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds. The temp display is replaced by 00. Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments. When finished push cancel (or just do nothing). Good luck. I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire. It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too. May be something else wrong with my oven though?

The oven is controlled by an Electronic Range Control (ERC). This is the clock assembly on the range. The surface elements are powered by infinite switches and do not go through the ERC. That explains why the clock assembly is dead, your oven does not work, but your surface elements do. You need to replace the ERC. If you can provide me with a model number (located near the oven door or bottom drawer opening on most ranges, on the back of the console on some) I can determine what type of ERC you need and how much it might cost you. Post back with comments and let me know if I can be of further assistance. I hope this helps you.

If the oven was working before then
1. Power is gone from the unit - loose connector or neutral wire ( or ground wire depending on wiring system being used)
2. The power supply transformer (or transistor) on control board is busted. This is especially true if there was power problems in the apartment- power going on and off frequently. Check the wiring and see what comes up. Hope that helps

Hello, I think I have the same oven as you, and yes the oven doesn't seem to work unless the clock has been set.
On my oven, there are 4 buttons and a dial below the digital clock.
To set the clock, you need to turn the dial whilst holding any two of the 4 buttons down.
For me it's a two handed job.
