Question about Hotpoint 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Gas Range - Black

1 Answer

My Hotpoint oven won't get and stay hot. What could the problem be?

Sometimes it smells of gas. Sometimes gets hot for a while but cannot sustain it. I can get it hot via Broil, but it won't stay hot once I turn it back to oven. Any ideas?

    From what I can tell from the receipt is is a M920 Gas Range. There is a classification code of 27520. And possibly a Model number of RGB746HED. Does that help?

    OK, that is the model number. Pull the temperature probe out and with a multi-meter you will need to check the Ohms. It should be 1100 Ohms at room tempature. If you get any other reading then you will need to replace it. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/WP8vcI

Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced.  Look and see if it glows.  If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite.  Let me know what you find.

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below.  Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic

SOURCE: I have a Hot point

More than likely, you have a bad igniter. As the igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function properly. Just because they glow, does not mean they are good. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. If a single igniter is still working (i.e., the broiler still works), its more than likely NOT a control board issue, either.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement igniter is WB13K21.

NOTE: It is common for the BAKE igniter to require replacement more often than the broiler, due to the frequency of use.

If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

Hello,

The problem with your oven is that ignitor is weak and not drawing enough amprage to open the gas valve, the gas you smell was since the ignitor does come on it allowed the gas valve to open a wee bit but since ignitor is weak it wont allow gas valve to open fully. I know you going to doubt that what i'm telling you is correct, i base my diagnosis on my 30 years experience as a appliance repair technician.Replace ignitor and enjoy your baked meal

When i turn on oven all i smell is gas i cleaned with a wire brush still nothing. also is the pilot light always have to be on and can you see it when oven is off


Most gas ovens that aren't electronic ignition usually have a pilot light.
Usually one in the oven area and one for each burner. (Sometimes shared between two burners.)
These pilot lights must lit at all times...otherwise it won't light up and you'll smell gas.
Usually the pilot light is in the very back of the oven and can be seen with the broiler drawer opened.

There is a small set screw located at the pilot light assembly in the oven and also at every burner.
This allows you to adjust pilot light up or down, thereby letting you set pilot light flame to a level that doesn't get blown out by a draft...or you can turn it off completely.

If you use that set screw to turn off the pilot light gas, you'd need to strike a match to light the oven or burners everytime you needed them.

Smell gas in oven


We smell it sometimes, too. Ever since we got it we sometimes smell gas. I think we got used to it and just assumed it was the pilot light doing things.

You need to replace the igniter, it controls the how much the gas valve opens by how much electricity passes through it. Sometimes when the igniter gets weak, it opens the gas valve just slightly but it is not yet hot enough to light the gas. you can purchase the igniter you need at http://www.reliableparts.com/ using your model number.

The flame sensor has to prove the flame to stay lit. When it fails, the valve closes.
