Question about Hotpoint Ovens
I need to find information and sources for repair parts for this vintage oven. It heats, but the clock and timer do not work, the probe is missing, and the thermostat seems to be off as it appears to get too hot. The rubbery gasket is also missing except for a strip across the top of the opening on the oven side, not on the door. If there was one on the door, there is no sign of it now.
I can read a serial number of 1278447, but the Cat No. is hard to read. My best guess is 102366601 with the first 3 and last one digit the hardest to be sure of.
There is also a push-button switch in the bottom center of the control panel that I am unsure of. The button directly above it turns on the oven light.
Based on the age of an extensive remodel on this house, I am guessing it is from the late 60's to early 70's in age. It is in otherwise excellent condition.
brand new??? under a year old??? if so you have a warr call for service, but it sounds like an ignitor isssue, brand new , perhapsgot damaged in shipping 1-800-ge-cares

I replaced the C3 capacitor on the circuit board and works fine. This was mentioned in a prior post and took 5 minutes and was under $5.00 for the part.

Hi, this will happen over a period of time and its just heat related. the control panel isn't insulated properly and , there has been a larger than normal transfer of heat to the inside of the control panel where the circuits are housed.
If this is a problem, i recommend replacing the control board. it will fix the dim issue.

Good Morning Eileen, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your Electrolux double wall oven is having over heating issues. It is possible that this could be a faulty thermostat, control panel, or element. Since it could be anyone of these underlying having a technician out would help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. If you need help locating a technician you can visit your manufacturer's website for additional assistance with locating a technician. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Hello Chris Hammond, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided it sounds like a potential problem with your connector for your element within your Frigidaire wall oven.
