Replacing thermostat Is replacing my thermostat to my Hotpoint RGB524 something that I could do myself or should I hire it out? If the solution doesn't extend to that beyond me being a fit-it guy, how do I fix it? Thanks

Re: replacing thermostat

Thats very easy first unplug the stove lift the top it should stay up with the arms extended,pull the arms out of the slot and remove oven top , gently pull knobs off , remove all hidden screws behind knobs, remove the front panel held in place by 2-3 screws on top and under panel, remove 2 screws holding existing thermostat unplug 2 wire thermost follow capillary to sensing bulb which is inside the oven unless it broke off it should be there, im asuming thats why you are replacing it ,remove sensing bulb from 2 brackets holding it in place make sure its perfectly straight because it has to pass through a small hole, installaton is the opposite of removal good luck.

How can I manually light the oven if the igniter does not work?

Is it a natural gas oven? I remember old times, when igniter didn't work, my 91 years old great-grandmother opened the gas and used a match. This procedure is considered rather dangerous but it never exploded to her...

Where is the Hotpoint RGB524 Gas Kitchen Range pilot light located and how do I get it lit? I turn knobs and hear a spark sound but no flame. Thanks in advance..

The spark should light the pilot automatically. If you open the broiler door and look up at the left rear side of the burner, you should see the pilot assembly and the spark igniter. Try lighting the pilot by hand with a match, right where the spark is. If it lights, the oven should come on. If it doesn't light, there may be a blockage in the pilot assembly, like a spider web or something. If the pilot seems too small, it may set for LP and you are on Natural gas. The adjustment for that is behind the oven knob, a screw. Good luck.
