If you have a HOTPOINTelectric Cooker or Fan Ovenwhich is not heating it could be one of the following problems.
1, If the fanmotor inthe back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normallylittle red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new ovenelement, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from ourwebsite these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the HOTPOINTelement youwill have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you willsee the fan and element,if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where ithas blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuitie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.

2, If your HOTPOINTfan oven is getting warm buttakes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than theother, then you need to check if your oven fanmotor is working you will seethe blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fanmotor isnot blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fanmotor is a little more expensive and a bit moreinvolved.
3. If you have theopposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then youwill need to replace your HOTPOINToven thermostat

4, A quite commonand easily overlooked answer is if your HOTPOINToven is not working at all ie:no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer intoAUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

    this could be that your timer is on auto if not then this can be many faults including thermostat fault or switch gear, also check if the element is blown see my right up on this

Hotpoint BD32 built in oven is not heating up anymore, top oven/grill works fine. When it's switched on it makes the right "noise" but there is no heat or light. Is this an element problem?


you can check the element, just get a volt ohm meter, set to ohm's and make sure it shows a short, otherwise you have an open or bad element.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

The grill on my Hotpoint EW 41 Electric freestanding cooker has stopped working after my wife put aluminum foil into the grill pan which then touched the grill element causing it to 'blow' and so...


The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick

Hi.i have a hotpoint creda c362e cooker the rings work grill works but main oven and top oven elements dont come on even when lights come on when switched on fan works but no heat could you help me on this...


Hi.
Frpm the sympton's you list, I would say that the main oven element has failed, espsecially if the fan is working o/k.
The element is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
In addition to the grill elements in the top oven compartment, there is an additional base element which you can't see.
If you turn the top oven on, the base of the compartment should get hot, if it does not, then the base element has probably failed.
Hope this helps.

My hotpoint ew61 double oven doesnt come up to


If it is heating, but not getting hot enough, then it is possible the thermostat is cutting the element off too soon, in this event, you will need to replace the thermostat.
If it is not heating at all , then the element is probably faulty.

Thanks.

Hotpoint ew83p oven has no heat


The oven fan element has failed, you need to fit a new one.

Remove inner rear panel of oven and you will see the round element at rear.Unscew screw(s) that secure element, disconnect leads, and fit new element.
Refit element cover.
Job done..
Make sure you have power off to oven before you start.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
