Hotpoint gas stove with self cleaning oven is stuck in preheat

My freely given hotpoint gas stove with self cleaning oven is stuck in preheat cycle. does anyone have any idea how to remedy the problem ? it was given to me freely and this is the first time i have ever had a gas stove with a self cleaning oven. It has digetal clock,cook time settings as well. When turning on the oven, the preheat light comes on and then it flames up high in the oven and comes out the small openings in the bottom of the oven. You can see this by turning on the light or looking into the glass window. When it does this, it smells of gas in the house. It eventualy will bake what you place in there but it seems with more baking time. Any ideas on why this is happening?

SOURCE: preheat worksoven wont bake

hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

SOURCE: Bake mode will not preheat. Circuit breaker is

Check both sides of the element for 100-120VAC. If either one is out, you won't get squat for heating - the problem is most likely with the DLB relay or the bake relay on the relay board. (The element should ohm out between 20 and 40 ohms if it's healthy.)

How do I turn the temp down after oven has been on for a while. 'Loc on' message is showing and will not allow me to turn oven on.


Can you provide some additional details to help me help you? What kind of stove (make/model) and does it have any kind of self clean mode?

Without knowing the above details generally speaking of the oven is already preheated, to change the temperature you would hit the bake/preheat button to then adjust temp up or down with a digital stove. The dial stove from is self explainatory!

That loc on message may be because you have a stove lock lever or feature that prevents the stove from being opened when enabled, or when the stove is self cleaning. This may prohibit the adjust meant of temperature when the lock is on, or the stove is running through the self clean..

Again all just a general thought without knowing the above information... if you can post back or let me know is this was helpful in anyway to you! Thanks!!

Should my broiler turn on when I am preheating my oven this does not seem right to me and my oven caught on fire last night


Hi,
Yes the broiler will often turn on to help preheat the oven.
If it caught fire, it is not because of that, but because you have too much run over food in the oven. That is what caught fire. You need to clean it an NOT with the self clean!!

Self Clean cycle on Hotpoint Gas range doesn't work


We see a symptom like this due to a failure in the control board. Although it usually also affects bake mode. Another cause could be a problem with the door lock as it must be engaged (by the controller) to initiate self-clean.

If this doesn't help, you can either post the full model number or email me at bruce@fixyourboard.com and we can dig deeper.

Oven wont heat


That depends if the oven is electric or gas.

If it is electric, it can be heating element, temp probe, or control knob/buttons, board and wiring.

If it is gas it can be the igniter (check spark) , the thermostat, the safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow, or the control.

If the oven has self cleaning cycle, check that it is not stuck on self cleaning, try unplugging for a while and restarting self cleaning cycle in that case.
