Hotpoint eg76x grill

The grill in my oven has developed a fault - to begin with it didn't work when the knob was turned to the highest setting on full grill, but now it is very hit and miss what will work. The fan sometimes works for the grill, sometimes not. I can get the grill itself to come on but not in all positions on the knob where it should. Is this a problem with the knob or the grill? Thank you.

Hi there,

If the grill is working in some positions on the switch but not in others it sounds like the switch under the knob may be the problem. Does the same switch control the fan? If yes I would say you will have to replace that switch and that the contacts more than likely are worn inside the switch. Switches are usually not hard to replace and usually have lugs or a push/pull connector. Make sure you TURN OFF the POWER before you start trying to remove it. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan

NEW WORLD - NW601FP Electric Oven


i believe after buying this oven that the left knob at turning clockwise position 1 is defrost which works by just blowing room temp air around, position 2 is oven on, position 3 is conventional grill must be used with door open and position 4 is fan grill can be used with door closed ,and the knob on the left is for setting oven temp and and turn fully round when using the grill to heat the grill

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

Because I haven't got a manual, and the oven is slightly worn, I would like to know what the symbol at the eleven o'clock position on the top oven control knob means. There are 2 symbols that appear to be...


There are two controls for the top oven and grill.

The far left one is purely for the oven and oven lights. The middle control of the three on the panel is for the grill. The grill will only work when the front is down, there is a micro switch that controls this.

The grill control is a dual action control. Turn it one way and it is the full grill, turn it the other and it is only the inner element. Left is the small grill, right is the larger, full grill. Oven lights do not come on with the grill control, you have to turn the lights on with the oven control.

The oven has a small element so takes a long time to heat up.

If you need a copy of the handbook, supply an email address and you can have access to my BT digital vault where a copy is stored.

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.

Hotpoint EG900X rear round heating element


If the fan is working, but there is no heat from rear element, then the element needs replacing.
Remove inner rear cover of oven, you will see the element there, remove, and replace.
Please leave a rating for my suggested solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint Double Oven ceramic hob


suspect more than one problem. half grill not working may be due to half the element gone open circuit. the other problems could be due to an installation fault. many ovens have links in the connection box which have to be tightened down. this is often overlooked. look at the connection box or terminal strip to check. there is often a diagram of hoiw it should be done adjacent.
