    The cooker is at another location so it might be a week before I can try the micro switch idea. I failed to get it onto manual. Is there a particular order for using the small setting buttons.

    For example, in some cookers one has to depresss two buttons while pushing a third. As you can guess, the instruction manual is missing.

If your oven has timer and it is flashing AUTO then you need to reset it to manual for it to work.
If no timer then it could be a faulty door micro switch, located at the front left side..\Hope this helps, please leave feed back.

I have a stoves cooker which was working fine until we upgraded to the seventeeth edition consumer unit and rcds. Now I have a negative earth fault.Rcd trips out, circuit is fine up to the cooker. Any...

The clue will be when the rcd trips out. If everything is switched off on the cooker with the exception of the clock when you power it up and then it trips out, it could be in the wiring to the oven from the control switch and or the wiring in the oven. The only way you are going to find this is to take the oven out of the housing and test the wiring, isolating components until you find the problem.

The grill on my Hotpoint EW 41 Electric freestanding cooker has stopped working after my wife put aluminum foil into the grill pan which then touched the grill element causing it to 'blow' and so...

The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick

Hi.i have a hotpoint creda c362e cooker the rings work grill works but main oven and top oven elements dont come on even when lights come on when switched on fan works but no heat could you help me on this...

Frpm the sympton's you list, I would say that the main oven element has failed, espsecially if the fan is working o/k.
The element is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
In addition to the grill elements in the top oven compartment, there is an additional base element which you can't see.
If you turn the top oven on, the base of the compartment should get hot, if it does not, then the base element has probably failed.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint cooker, grill doesn't work but top oven does

If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

The oven just stopped working in our hotpoint ew51 cooker everything else still works any idea,s

the oven control switch is bad, or you have a burned out oven element top or bottom. If your broiler heat comes on, the top is o.k., then the bottom element needs replaced

Cant set cooker clock so cant use oven as a result

You will probably have to replace the cooker clock. Do any of the other parts work? This fortunately is not that expensive and you were blessed not to have more damage than this.
