Question about Hotpoint Ovens
I used it to make breakfast in the morning, and when I came home, almost 11-12 hours later, it was still super hot! I'm worried about fires! :(
If you have the older type stove with the oven knob that has the temperature setting around the outside of the knob, then that part could be bad. It is called a thermostat. That part usually comes with sensor attached. The sensor is the long skinny looking tube that goes through a hole and into the oven.
If you have the newer type electronic stove where you program in the temperature you want, the electronic circuit board could be bad. But the electronic stoves have a over temperature protection built into the circuit board, so that would have engaged, shutting down the stove.
Either way, it is a potential fire hazard and needs to be addressed.

Gracias, sounds like your thermal cut out opened in the back. Part number 4451442. It's a small thermal fuse that can open during cleaning killing power to the oven. It's located in the back of the oven. Two wires going to it, orange and red according to the diagram. Cost is around 39.00. You can ohm it out, should show continuity. You can do the job yourself. Look the part up on the net so you know what you are going after. Or just let the repair service you think you know what is wrong and have them give you an estimate..Catriver..post back.

Turn Breaker/Fuse for the stove, your electrical panel, “OFF” and then “ON”, wait 20 - 30 seconds and the door should unlock.
It may be that the temp sensor is going out and you'll need to have that looked at soon.

The fan only comes on in the back of the oven when convecting and Automaticaly turns off when you open the door. The exhaust fan coming from the front stays on for qutie a while, maybe 2 hours or so till the oven cools. I think it is just a function of the oven. A good thing in the winter but uses a bunch of airconditioning in the summer

Could be a couple things. If your machine is actually failing either a control board or an oven sensor.
Also measuring the temperature can only be done by a tech unless you have a special tool. Oven thermometers are inaccurate. Plus most ranges should vary temp between 50-75 degrees unless has a feature or the more recent ones keep it between 15-25 degrees.
Try the biscuit test, buy some biscuit, brand not important, i just say pillsbury. Cook exactly as recommended on package. If results are a little overcooked or a bit undercook try a feature called Adjusting the oven temperature or Calibrating the oven. This can be done by following the instructions in your book.
