Question about Hotpoint RGB524 Gas Kitchen Range

3 Answers

Hotpoint Gas Range (model: RGB524PN1AD)

The oven knob turns (round and round) and won't shut off gas. What could this be. Some guy told me it was the thermostat. The cost of a new thermostat is crazy! Any ideas. Everything else works fine.

The knob could be stripped or cracked. Try to shut it off with a pliers, careful not to damage the shaft. If thet works get a new knob.

I have a GE Hotpoint stove/range model num 317B6641P001 that the oven will not ignite nor will the igniter turn on.

It sounds like the ignitor is will not or should not smell gas if ignitor is bad...gas valve is not supposed to open until the sensor by the ignitor has reached a certain temp. It's a safety feature. If you replace the ignitor, it should work like normal.

That's you ignitor. They get weak. If it has a glow that is dim orange that is a sign. Another sign of a weak glowbar is you can kick the oven and make her lite off. themobilian_467.jpg

What do you mean "checked the parts?" If you are not a qualified tech DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING! Check to see if there is a separate knob by the thermostat that turns on the gas.

Oven ignites by itself

Any chance that the plastic knob was cracked and not really turning the shaft of the thermostat?
What did you find the problem. I know this response is 2 months after the last post above.
