Grill not working - Hotpoint double oven model BD31

Both elements of the Grill (part of top oven) are not working - no heat is coming out at all, either on "full" or "half grill" setting.

Yet, both grill elements appear to work OK (and certainly get hot) when the top oven is used or when the plate warming setting (in top oven) is used.

Initially I thought the grill elements had gone - but both at same time ? And why do they work when top oven is used ?

Any thoughts on what the problem might be ? Many thanks.

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.

SOURCE: wont get hot grill works think the element has

If it is a fan assisted oven, then it is probably the oven element that has failed.
This is usually located at the rear of the inner oven compartment behind a removeable panel

SOURCE: the grill on my Hotpoint EW 41 Electric

The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick

Hotpoint sy36x grill element works fine but when switched on to oven it doesnt heat up, fan working.


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...

Zanussi electric double oven. Top oven not working.


It sounds like a faulty thermostat, because when you turn the thermostat on it should supply the oven element and the neon light, so even if the element is faulty, the neon light should still come on regardless of the element working or not.
Hope this helps.

My hotpoint ew61 double oven doesnt come up to


If it is heating, but not getting hot enough, then it is possible the thermostat is cutting the element off too soon, in this event, you will need to replace the thermostat.
If it is not heating at all , then the element is probably faulty.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Oven not getting hot


The fan oven element needs to be replaced in the Hotpoint 6150 cooker.
Access is by removing the inner rear cover of the oven, there you will see the element.
Replace with a new one.


It is possible the base element is faulty in the top oven of the Hotpoint EW95,
The other possibility is that the high speed grill element is only part working.You need to check both these elements.
If the fan is working o/k in the main oven , but not getting hot, then you need to replace the element.
If it does heat, then it could be a faulty thermostat or possibly selector switch.
Unless you have a good working knowledge of electrics and know how to use a meter, then I would suggest you call some one in.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.
