Thanks for your reply. I contacted an appliance repair person I have used before and he told me about turning off the breaker, which I did. He suggested using an oven thermostat to see if it was heating to the correct temperature as a first step. It may be the thermostat, I do not know what the controller is as presented by one of the responders. At any rate I learned that my breaker for the oven is by itself and is not attached to the stovetop which is good. I will have to weigh the cost of replacing a part on a 20 year old builder quality oven with microwave on top to a new one. Any ideas on a new problem free model are appreciated!!

SOURCE: 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

A separate oven thermometer is absolutely necessary in baking. Something similar to this would be cheap and easy. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=10161738
Or you could go for a digital one with a probe.

SOURCE: My oven burns everything.
Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

HI. the oven temp sensor is malfunctioning. have it inspected for damage. check the wires leading from the control to the sensor for cuts and damage as well. replace the sensor if these issues with heating persist.
