Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I can't stop cleaning!!!

I ran the self-cleaning cycle last night and now every time that I try to turn the temp/bake knob to use the oven, the CLEAN light blinks. When this happens, the oven does not ignite to cook at the asked temp, just blinks to clean. The clean cycle still works properly. I have tried to reset the system by unplugging it, but to no avail! In short, now that the oven is clean-I cannot use it!!

I had the same problem. The issue is in the electric switch that tells the oven whether the door lock is latched. If the switch gets stuck in the "clean" position, even though the lock is released, the oven will not run the regular cycles. If you wiggle the lock levr a few times it may free the switch, otherwise you'll have to raise the cooktop, and there is a metal cover over the mechanism. Remove the 2 screws holding the switch (unplug the power first) and you should be able to un-stick it. Reassemble and you're good to go, at least until you need to run the cleaning cycle again...

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Jenn Air oven door won't open after clean cycle


Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:

Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work


Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.

Tappan double oven


I have the digital timer oven and also cannot find the manual. You have to set the bake time timer, I think for 3 hours. Then you set the oven knob on clean and turn on the temp knob, probably to full but I don't think it matters. When you engage the lock, the clean light should come on/ When the oven reaches high temp, the lock light will also be on.
