Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Can't seem to access Hotpoint Stove Pilot Light? Also is there a second pilot light for the oven?

I am wondering how I'm supposed to light the pilot on a Hotpoint stove. I think I'm supposed to lift up the cooktop, but I can't get to lift up. It feels like its locked/screwed down somehow but I can't tell where it would be. Also, not sure whether there is second pilot for the oven. If so, any thoughts on where that would be. The exact model is RGB745WEA7WW.

For the last 10 years or more there are no pilot lights on gas ranges. Modern ranges have an electronic igniter on the burners and a different type on the oven.

Can't seem to access Hotpoint Stove Pilot Light?

Your range uses electronic ignition, not pilot lights. For surface burners the igniter sparks when the gas valve is turned to the "light" position. All burners should spark when any gas valve is in the light position. For the oven the ignitor is also electric but does not spark but rather heats up or glows. What is the problem with your range?

Hot point has 2 pilot lights on top... light them... then go to oven and light that one... it is a safety feature... no pilot on top kills the pilot in the stove.
.. since gas is heavier then air the company made sure if there was a gas leak on top that it would not be caught by oven and blow up.

How do i turn the pilot light off. I want to use a bug fogger in my apartment and i want to temporarily turn off the pilot on my stove

This model should have pilotless electronic ignition.If you hear clicking when you light the burners , it is electronic,. Also , open broiler drawer and turn on oven .After a few seconds do you see a glow start?Thats your electronic oven igniter confirming you have no pilot.

Old hotpoint gas stove. burners and broiler work oven does not. Could it be the ignitor and how does one fix it?

Usually ranges have a pilot at the bottom. Take the bottom panel off and there should be a button that says 'pilot' hold the button down for a few seconds to let the air purge out. Then while still holding the button down, light the pilot with a match or a lighter of some sort. Continue holding the button down for a few more seconds until the thermocouple has warmed up. (You'll know the thermocouple has warmed up if you can release the pilot button and the pilot stays lit)

I can't find the pilot light on my Hotpoint gas stove. Where is it?

Depends which pilot light you're talking about. There are two for the hobs and (I assume) one for the oven. I can't find the one for the oven, hence why I'm on here looking through forums (a..?)

How to light pilot for oven in 1950's roper delux

If it is an insta-light, I just rebuilt a Roper that age, the instructions are to turn off oven heat control, wait two minutes, locate red button which you have done, apply match to pilot, depress red button for 5 seconds and that should keep pilot light on, the instruction manual states to hold match for 60 seconds prior to pushing button, then hold for 5 seconds, either way, you don't want to flood the area with raw gas, and yet still apply enough heat long enough to lock in pilot, has the gas line been loose? Make sure it is purged of air, again, don't flood area with raw gas, it is pretty typical pilot procedure, the worst part is finding the red button, usually behind a burner cover. So try holding the button a bit longer with your match on it, some take a while, worst is the control has gone bad, but there are replacement valves for this vintage, I did check,

Gas oven dosnt work

the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.
