    I had the same problem my electric went off and when I reset the trip fuse my oven did not get hot

    My Hotpoint is also getting warm, but not hot.  The light comes on - but it never fully heats.  However, we did not lose power - this just happened.

You could have lost one of your 120v leads to the machine. that could cause it to work only half way. go turn the breaker off and then turn it back on and see if that corrects the problem.

    open the back panel and test for the element. put your meter leads one
    on one terminal one on the other if you read 240 you have a bad element
    if you read 0 you may have a bad control. take the yellow wire off and
    tet for 120 coming out if the board if no voltage coming out then
    replace the control.

Main fan oven not heating

If the light and the fan are working then it is the heating element that has failed. You need to replace it.

Its not a difficult job but you have to take the back off the oven. The heating element is usually in a circular shape around the fan housing.

You have to disconnect the wires to the heater and remove the retaining screws, fit the new heater and reconnect. Remember to switch off the power before starting work

Oven not working

you would have to check the element for continuity. Also the oven sensor could be suspect and should ohm out at 1180 at room temp. if both those are ok then main control is probable. without schematic it would be hard to say for sure..there may even be a safety fuse blown.

The oven wont heat up above 50

HI, this is not a serious issue here. you will need to test the resistance of the oven temp senors. it seems to be defective. also, check the wiring harness from the oven temp sensor to the control. make sure the wiring harness is in good condition. replace the oven temp sensor if found to be defective.

Hotpoint BD52 oven very slow to heat up

You may have one leg of power that is out. First turn off the breakers, then back on. Check it to see if it is better. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug, to the back of the oven. Look inside the back of it and see if you see any fuses. They could be blown as well. If you are getting some heat (red) then it is an indication of a wiring or fuse problem. Now, one last thought here, if you turn it to high heat does it heat up faster? This one lead it to be in the control switch. Let me know how you do.
