Hotpoint - RB525 H3WH Oven shuts off past 250 degrees

Every time I turn my oven past 250 degrees, the preheating light turns off, and the element starts to cool. I figured if it was a bad element, that it wouldn't work at all.

The model # is - Hotpoint - RB525 H3WH

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

Oven temp heats higher than set

The control board is bad. One of the relays has fused and you will need to replace the control board.

Oven does not heat

This clicking sound.. If it is coming from the control panel area could be indicative of a relay that is malfunctioning.
For giggles try the oven on just broil. See if the upper element comes on and stays on, or if it too shuts down.
If it stays on then you most likely have a bad control board.
If it shuts off like the bake element and does not come back on, I would carefully inspect your power cord and cord connections as well as the range outlet.
Good luck!

Model GBS307PDQ5: Oven preheated to 425 degrees.

F3 usually means, that the oven temp. sensor is bad and one need to replace it.
The fact, that it's not heating tells me, the fuse in the back also needs to be replaced (requires pulling out).

This morning, I went to turn the oven on to preheat. The oven light came on, but when I passed 250 degrees, it went back off. I turned the knob around to broil, the light came on again. But the oven never...

Check the breaker pannel or fuse box. The elements work on 220 volts the lights on 120 volts. If this doesn't help repost and well try again
Hope This helps

It takes my electric over a long time I think to

That is a long time, but please give more information on what type of oven you have, and how old it is if the following does not solve your problem. First, Make sure you have not covered the bottom of the oven with any type of barrier to keep the oven clean (aluminum foil or inserts), it blocks the vents. If it is an older convection oven, preheat on bake and set the convection after it has preheated. Check the elements. Lift up the bottom panel and do a visual check of the element. Take out the bottom panel and turn the on oven on somewhere near 450-500 degrees. Visually inspect the element and see if there are bright red areas and dull areas. If the element has red hot areas and dark areas, you need a new element. If the element does not get red at all, you need a new element. Electric ovens usually have an upper and lower element, so you should check both before replacing one. The broiler element should be visible without removing anything, just look at the top of the oven after you set to broil. Lastly, make sure the oven door shuts snugly and that any gasket around the door is in good condition. If you don't know if the door is tight enough, just lean up against it to see if it preheats more quickly. The oven also has a temperature sensor, but from your description, that would not be the case because you did not mention trouble maintaining the temperature.The good news is that elements are usually cheap and easy to replace. Try to find your owners manual, it will tell you what part you need. If not, write down as much info on your oven that you can and take the element with you to the parts store. If this is not helpful, leave comments with more information and I will attempt to solve your problem. thank you for your question.

5 yr old Jenn Air Electric oven won't maintain oven temperature

Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.

If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.

Viking oven broil keeps on

it is designed to preheat this way. after the unit cycles the red indicator light off the first time than both elements turn off. when it calls for heat again only the bake elements comes on. makes the preheating work faster.
