It is possible the knob is slipping round and not turning the spindle of the switch, or the spindle is broken inside the switch, or the switch is partially seized up.
Pull the kjnob off the switch, and try turning it on wioth pair of pliers or grips, if that works, then the switch is probably o/k.
Also spray some WD40 onto the switch spindle, and inside the switch.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.

Knobs on hob above the oven getting very hot. Guess heat must be escaping from the oven. Any suggestions?


Try putting a layer of insulating materials between the Knob and the oven. That should help.

Hi I have a 720GRa rotostar double oven and grill when I turn the top oven/grill knob it turns but nothing works eg lights on the front the fan or the ignition but the oven works fine it worked this...


I suggest that if you have more than one knob of the same type, these knobs are usually removable by pulling straight out. Pull the knobs out and compare the inside. I would not be surprised if a metal insert is missing or the inside is stripped. Hope this suggestion is helpful.

Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...


The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

Stoves 720 EF Electric Double Oven Model No 059040415 -when you turn the grill knob there is no light and it doesn't do anything at all - the grill is not working. However, the element must be working as...


First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

Hotpoint cooker, grill doesn't work but top oven does


If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.
