SOURCE: Hotpoint cooker, grill doesn't work but top oven does

If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

Hi I have a 720GRa rotostar double oven and grill when I turn the top oven/grill knob it turns but nothing works eg lights on the front the fan or the ignition but the oven works fine it worked this...


I suggest that if you have more than one knob of the same type, these knobs are usually removable by pulling straight out. Pull the knobs out and compare the inside. I would not be surprised if a metal insert is missing or the inside is stripped. Hope this suggestion is helpful.

NEW WORLD - NW601FP Electric Oven


i believe after buying this oven that the left knob at turning clockwise position 1 is defrost which works by just blowing room temp air around, position 2 is oven on, position 3 is conventional grill must be used with door open and position 4 is fan grill can be used with door closed ,and the knob on the left is for setting oven temp and and turn fully round when using the grill to heat the grill

Grill knob doesnt want to turn on without wiggling then clunks on,top oven(same knob different direction turn)is ok.


The last time I asked, espares could provide a replacement which is what you need to do. If you can't find it listed, there is a section on it where you can ask for a quote.

Model 720EF. Model No 059040415. The grill will not work. The top oven is still working but the grill light or fan will not come on at all. Stoves have told me over the phone that it could be the...


First things first. The top oven lights ONLY come on when the top oven is switched on. Operating the grill DOES NOT turn the lights on. If you wish to see what you are grilling, you have to turn the top oven control knob on to its first position as well as turning the grill on.
Secondly, the grill only works when the door is open. The grill does not work when you shut the door. When you open and shut the door, you should be able to hear the microswitch operating. It is located in the right hand side of the cooker, between the inner and outer panels - you cannot see it. I haven't seen the switch first hand but they normally come with an arm that contacts the door mechanism and the door mechanism operating, causes the arm to move, which causes a button on the switch to move and make the circuit. It has been known for the arm on the microswitch to bend with use so it no longer works correctly.
If you have checked all above and you hear the switch operating, then it could have failed. They are quite common, so if you can't get one from STOVES, try espares or someone like Maplin or RadioSpares.
The get to the microswitch you have to take the oven out of the housing and then take the right hand panel off. You should then be able to see it and check its operation.
All the best

Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...


The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

I would like to know how to adjust the stove so that it sits level ?


Most stoves of this type have both wheels and screw adjusted levellers (generally in the front only).
The lower drawer opens to reveal these in the corners or a loose clip-on front panel needs to be removed by gentle pulling. The knurled wheel like knobs are generally turned anti-clockwise (Right to Left as you face the stove) to screw out and thereby lift the stove front up to suit your requirements. Good Luck.
