I have a hotpoint RGB745. The oven reaches the set temp. Then the flame will go out and not come back on unless, the oven dial is turned to off and then back to the set temp. Then the cycle is repeted...heats up ok then out etc. The indicator light for reaching the set temp. will only go out if you reset the oven temp to off.
The oven temperature is very erratic. It is too cold, or, mysteriously,heats up way beyond the set temperature.. I have paid $300 in repairservice and was told it was too expensive to fix. I don't believe theyreally figured out what the problem was. I can only control the oventemperature by watching it carefully every ten minutes and turning theconrol off and on.

if it's glowing but not igniting the flame in less than 40 seconds you have a lazy ignitor,change it out.open the draw unser the oven door and on the left or right side of frame not the door you'll see a tag with the model and serial number,give your parts store the model number and they'll give you the correct ignitor
If you have a ohm meter you can ohm out the temp sensor. It has a harness that connects in the back. Unplug it and it should read around 1100 ohms at room temp. It sounds to me more like the ignitor itself. It has to draw so many amps to open up the gas valve. Check the sensor first. If it ohms out, change the ignitor. I think your problem will go away.

Hi! melisrus If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint. www.hotpoint.com Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

Any other posts have been blocked, so I don't know what you have been told or tried. Has the oven temp been OK until just recently? The range has not been moved or converted Nat gas to LP etc. recently? If yes to Q1 and no to Q2, I'd replace the oven sensor (
WB21X5301) and then reset control to +- 00. Sensor is the pencil shaped thing sticking out the back of the oven. Note: Your temp test method is not accurate enough to calibrate oven exactly. I take average temp after a minimum 3 on / off cycles using a digital calibrating oven thermometer to get them within 10 degrees of set temp.
