Re: gas oven not heating


I'm guessing that there is an issue of some kind with flow of heat inside the oven. Gas ovens use the hot air/gas exhaust to heat up the oven. Flames mean heat. The flames should be about half an inch long or so. If not, there may be an issue, but I don't think that is it.

Have you lined the oven with foil? It is possible that vents from the boiler section are closed up? That will prevent heat from reaching the oven.

Why t takes long time for oven to heat up?

Does the oven actually heat up with the temperature more than 100 or does it just stay at 100? Alternatively, when you open the oven can you see the orange glow of the flame through the vents in the bottom of the oven and hear the gas hissing?

The lower oven heats up really slow and stops at around 220'F when its set for 400, it wont get up in temperature

The problem may be caused by different components but most common is the oven temperature probe. It could also the the thermostat. A technician can measure the resistance of the probe at a known temperature and determine if it is failed or not.

Our gas oven will heat to 265 degrees and then turn off. This happens on the bake setting. Even after trying to heat to 400 degrees, it turns off at 265 every time.

The first thing you need to do is check the temperature sensor, which should be 1100 ohms at room temperature (plus or minus 5%). If it is accurate, you probably need to fix the control board. You can send in your board to for repair.

Oven taking very long time to hit temperature. set at 400 it takes forever (1/2 hour) then gets stuck at 398

Replace the oven ignitor. (they get weak after a period of time, and will give those results, or stop heating altogether)

Oven not heating to desired temperature

You will have to place a amp meter over one ignitor wire and turn the oven on to bake.
If the amp draw is 3.3 amps or less,replace the ignitor.

Hotpoint gas oven won't keep its temperature. I

The temperature sensor in the oven needs replacing. It is located in the back wall of the oven. About 3 inches long,metal and about the size of a thin pencil.

Oven not about 100 deg. below temperature setting

It's easier to eliminate the element.You can do this two ways;first thing,remove power from unit.Unplug it and you know for sure power is off.Inside the oven you can get to the wiring on element by removing the two screws on the back wall that holds the bracket to the wall.(this works for both elements)Pull the element out and you will see the wires(2).They will be either screwed on or connected with spade clips which pull on/off.Remove at least one wire and use your meter,set on ohms, put a meter lead on each element connector,you should read continuity.If you don't the element is bad,replace it.Give the elements a good visual inspection first,some times you can see where the element burnt out.The other way to get to the wiring by pulling the back panel off the stove.Hope this helps.
