Question about Hotpoint Ovens

1 Answer

What's causing my oven to stay hot HOURS after I've turned it off?

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.

SOURCE: Door locked and screen is dead after Auto Clean

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.

Pheo,
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.

SOURCE: Turning off oven.

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.

Oven will not turn off


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire oven will not turn off. I also see that when you turn it off, the blower and heating element, stay on. The blower will stay on to help cool down the oven, but the heating element should turn off. I see that you have to turn your oven off at the circuit breaker. I suggest contacting your local authorized dealer for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why your oven will not turn off. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Bake and Broil elements quit working


Could be both elements, control board cause usually both elements don't go out simutaneously, or even just your breaker. check for continuity on elements unplugged of course.... and 220v at plug. also check for burnt wires to elements. some models have a cavity high-limit switch located on back for safety. check for continuity on this if you have such...hope this helps

When i use the oven it stays hot after turned off. front panel, right under the touch buttons gets very hot.


This oven has an oven vent that comes out under the control panel usually to the right. Very poor design as this vents heat into the controls and can cause a control board failure, especially during a self cleaning cycle. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

OVEN STAYS HOT


This is somethig you should have checked by technician.Till then turn the oven off then pull straight out on the knob removing it. use a plyers to check if it's actually turning off by turning it to the left. If it does turn to the left( off position) you may just need a new knob.

Self cleaning


Sometimes, according to what I've seen.  My theory is that the elements are probably covered in grime and this causes the damage.  As far as the control...I don't think that makes sense.
Never use cleaner on the elements..also causes damage.
A typical duty cycle for cleaning is 2- 2.5 hours.  Longer and you could burn them up, too.

Oven heating element stays on


If element stays on even with oven turned off you probably have a bad main board. A relay on board is probably stuck on. If it stays on, but at a reduced heat...not getting red hot, it may be from a shorted wire causing 110 volts to get to element.
