it seems to me that it is a fan oven and the top element won't heat up you need a new fan oven element. it is a round element that sits behind the back grill surrounding the fan...

is the element still in one piece and mostly smooth to the touch? if you find any part of the element very rough where it looks like it actually melted then you've found your problem. post an update if this doesn't solve the problem.

There is no doubt that it is the element that has failed, so all you need to do is replace the fan oven element.
If you can see a removable panel at the rear of the oven ,remove that, and you should see the element.
Remove and replace.
If ther is no removable panel then you will have to access it from the rear of the oven cabinet.
Plz rate my solution.

If you have a HOTPOINTelectric Cooker or Fan Ovenwhich is not heating it could be one of the following problems.
1, If the fanmotor inthe back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normallylittle red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new ovenelement, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from ourwebsite these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the HOTPOINTelement youwill have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you willsee the fan and element,if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where ithas blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuitie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.
2, If your HOTPOINTfan oven is getting warm buttakes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than theother, then you need to check if your oven fanmotor is working you will seethe blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fanmotor isnot blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fanmotor is a little more expensive and a bit moreinvolved.
3. If you have theopposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then youwill need to replace your HOTPOINToven thermostat
4, A quite commonand easily overlooked answer is if your HOTPOINToven is not working at all ie:no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer intoAUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
