I have an older (mid-80s) model Hotpoint double oven (Model #RK767GOD2BG) and I know that the thermostat is off because I usually have to increase the cooking temp. on most recipes (and I check food doneness frequently). How do I fix the thermostat? Having trouble finding the manual anywhere online for this model.

Re: Fixing thermostat on oIder Hotpoint Double Oven
Hello, there is no fixing the thermostat although some of the older thermostats could be calibrated by using a very small flat head screwdriver in the shaft of the thermostat if there is no opening for a tiny screwdriver in the shaft then it cannot be calibrated. If you have to change the thermostat contact your local parts department have the model # handy if the original is not available ask about universal oven control replacement parts. Good Luck

If your oven is burning everything, it is getting too hot. Therefore the heater is working but the thing that measures the temperature is not. This is called the thermostat and there will be two types, one for each oven.
Google search for Hotpoint UY46 thermostat, there are plenty of suppliers. Make sure you get the correct one for the oven that is burning.
They are about 20-30 pounds to buy and generally easy to change. Just make sure the power is turned off before working on the oven and be careful of sharp edges as it is easy to get cut when removing panels.
All you need to do is to remove the screws securing the cover at the rear of the oven compartment.
There you will see the cicular eloement, just undo the fixing screws, and ease the element forward, transfer wires onto new elemnt, , refit, and job done.
If it is heating, but not getting hot enough, then it is possible the thermostat is cutting the element off too soon, in this event, you will need to replace the thermostat.
If it is not heating at all , then the element is probably faulty.
Please rate my solution.
If the fan is working, but there is no heat, then it is the fan oven element that needs to be replaced.
It has nothing to do with timer on this occasion.
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the round element.
Undo fixing screws,and remove element, disconnect leads and fit onto new element, refit new elemrnt, replace cover, and job done!!!

I have checked the Hotpoint website user manuals, and your model EW 84 is listed and available for download, so don't know why you could not find it.
If you still can't find it let me know.
Plz rate my solution.
The fan oven element needs to be replaced in the Hotpoint 6150 cooker.
Access is by removing the inner rear cover of the oven, there you will see the element.
Replace with a new one.
It is possible the base element is faulty in the top oven of the Hotpoint EW95,
The other possibility is that the high speed grill element is only part working.You need to check both these elements.
If the fan is working o/k in the main oven , but not getting hot, then you need to replace the element.
If it does heat, then it could be a faulty thermostat or possibly selector switch.
Unless you have a good working knowledge of electrics and know how to use a meter, then I would suggest you call some one in.

I just had a model 976-4CX put in...I have no manual...I'm trying to find one. I thought I had a problem with the element, dial or thermostat. The bottom worked, but the top stopped working. There are 2 timers with dials next to the clock labeled Start and Stop, and Push for Manual. Come to find out my problem was solved by adjusting the Start and Stop dials and/or pushing in for manual!?!
If I had a manual I'd know how these timers worked.
While it is flashing auto ,you will not get the oven to heat up.
You must press the timer buttons in the correcf sequence to cancel auto.Refer to user hand book.
If you suceed with this, and the oven still does not get hot, then the element has probably failed.
