Question about Hotpoint RB787 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Element burnt out

I had an element kinda of blow out on the range of a RB757BH1WH Hotpoint range. There was a big zap and pop sound and a hole in the bottom of my stock pot.

I have gotten a new element and replace the old. Nothing happens, no heat. I am assuming a wiring issue? The indicator light for the burner will not go out either.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Using oven and there was a pop and it went dead...oven, stovetop burner, clock panel, oven light!


Your element has burnt out. Reset the breaker, and get a new element. You can usually see where it has gone.

Some older stoves have glass fuses hidden behind the front panel.

Oven won't brown food properly


sounds like the upper element is burnt or the fuse is burnt.check the fuses first,by opening the access panel at the top and rear of the range,check the fuses to verify that they are good,if okay then open the oven door and remove the element and inspect the contacts and element for burn marks or breaks.if so replace either the element or the burnt contacts.

I was preheating my Samsung ftq387lwgx oven and heard 3 loud popping noises. Shut it off because it scared me. Turned it back on and it doesnt heat up and the top burners don't work either. The clock...


It sounds as if the oven element short circuited and blew one of the internal fuses in the range. If this occurs it generally knocks out the oven circuit and two hotplates. Locate the fuses, they are mostly in the griller/broiler section. Sometimes they are in the back of the range. Replace fuse wire and power will be restored. Before you turn the oven back on carry out a visual inspection of the element for holes/blow marks. It this is the problem the element will need replacing.

Top burners are working but oven will not turn on


This most likely will be a faulty oven element, followed by a burnt off wire at the oven element terminals. Check the element for any blow marks, holes etc. When you turn the oven switch on does the oven indicator light come on. If it does it generally means that the above will be the problem. If the indicator does not light has the oven got an electronic timer. The timer needs to the in the manual mode for the oven to work.

Was baking in oven on a baking stone and inside the oven there was a flash and loud pop (what you would expect if you had metal in a microwave). Is this worth the service charge to see if it can be fixed?...


Was the baking stone resting on the element? It sounds like the element has shorted out and it should have tripped the circuit breaker and/or blown a fuse in the unit. Replacing an element is not difficult and is carried out from the inside and the back if the oven. With the power off, locate which element has blown, it will probably be the bottom one and there should be a hole at the site. Remove the back if the unit, remove the wires from the element, remove any screws that may be holding itin place, ease the element out of any clips that retain it and pull it out through the front, Refitting the new element is the reverse of the removal.

Head a popping sound and oven temperature doesn't work


Most likely a bad element. Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks. Use a phillips screwdriver or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the mounting screws at the back of the oven cavity to remove the element. Carefully pull the element out and remove the wires. Do not let the wires fall back into the holes. Use a volt meter set for continuity. Touch one meter lead to one terminal on the element. Touch the other meter lead to the other terminal. If you get NO reading the element is bad. A new element will correct your problem. If the element reads as good you have a wiring problem or a bad control.

Stove cutoff after loud popping sound


The element burnt in to and arced which is the loud noice you heard red flash of light. It probably tripped the breaker at the electrical panel. Don't turn it back on until someone checks the element and replaces it.
