Question about Hotpoint RB787 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven won't shut off

I used the self-clean feature on my oven more than 24 hrs ago. It will self- clean for 4 hrs. I turned the oven off with only 36 mins left on the timer. This morning I noticed it was still very warm in the kitchen. The oven was off according to the dial. It was never turned on again since yesterday morning, but upon opening the oven door, I was blasted with immense heat. The oven was still on! I turned the dial 360 degrees back to the off setting, no help. The light, letting me know the oven was on ,lit as I turned the dial. So I unplugged the oven from the wall. Help? Why did this happen? What could be the problem? The oven was purchased in 1996-97 and is a Hotpoint RB787, if that helps.

Tes, sounds like the relays on the board welded shut or the selector is bad. Looks like the clock and selector are all one unit. If you post a complete model number I can give you a part number and you can look it up on the net to get a price. Catriver..post back.

RBS305 replaced thermal cutoff twice and again it won't come on bake or broil


Good Evening!
The self clean feature is causing your thermal fuses to fail or open. This is a safety mechanism that when open (bad) won't allow electricity to pass through any longer. The temperature in your oven exceeds what the components in your appliance can handle. If you want your oven to last it's longest, I would discontinue using that feature. If ever the control board or keypad on your oven by way of the self clean feature, we can help you with that. Fixyourboard.com can help. Send all inquiries to info@fixyourboard.com . Thank you!

Self cleaning ovens


Perhaps it hasn't cooled down enough; or you may have to run the self-cleaning cycle again. The oven has to reach a certain temperature before it starts to turn the residue to ash.You may have interrupted its cycle.

It then has to cool off sufficiently to safely open the door.

I need my kitchen aid oven to unlock


NEVER use the self cleaning feature - again!!

Sounds like my problem two days ago. I have a Kitchen Aid free standing gas oven/range model
KGRI801PWH00. I read online that the thermo-fuse might've blown. I found the thermo-fuse after removing the rear panel. It was at the top/center. Mine is T-O-D (brand) 60F24; Westinghouse #8300802. I ordered mine from appliancepartspros.com for only $34.75; arrived in 36 hrs with regular shipping!! Easy to fix, sure beats several hundred $$ to repairman.

Don't bother to call Kitchen Aid - they'll just blow you off just like the hundreds of complaints said that I found online.

Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.
 The oven must be removed from the wall to change this.

How long does the oven take for the self-cleaning cycle?


Most self clean cycles take 4 hrs.The oven is gradually heated up to 950 degrees F which takes up to 1 hr and after the 4 hrs is up it takes some time for the oven to cool down before the door will unlatch at below 550 degrees. You can self clean your oven 2-3 times for the price of a can of oven cleaner and without the elbow grease involved. You should not use harsh oven cleaners on the soft porcelain on your oven liner or it could be damaged. Before you put your oven into self clean you should wipe out any excess spillage with a damp soapy cloth and after cleaning you wipe away the ash with a damp cloth. If you do not want the oven racks to take on a blueish to ugly gray tint do not leave them in the oven during the clean cycle.

I have a ge electric built in single oven which had a grease fire


Its possible that the wiring harness to the door switch got a little too hot and have shorted. What I would do before I call a technician is to unplug the oven or turn the power off to it for a few minutes and then plug it back in to reset the control board. If you still get the error, I would recommend calling a service professional.
