EG73 Hotpoint Oven heating when switched off

I have a Hotpoint EG73 oven that is heating even when switched off, was intermittent, now all the time, spoke to Hotpoint and they say its likely to be the thermostat, sounds like a common problem can anyone confirm?

Thanks

Sounds just like hotpoint customer service "fob off"
your fault sounds more like the selector swich shorting out going by prev repairs i would isolate the cooker straight away and investigate.
ps. would not leave cooker powered up if not in use until fault repaired

Random intermittant crackling sound from Hotpoint electric oven


This could be insulation on the wiring or more importantly the connecting spot might be frying. In any event, disassemble it and check into it.

My Hotpoint electric oven no longer heats up. The top oven works but not the main one. How can I fix this?


HI, seen this before with the ge/hotpoint elec. ovens i worked on when i did apartment maintenance. One could be a bad control switch(knob u turn to turn on oven).turn on broiler and see if it comes on,if it does not that could be it.If it comes on it u might have to replace lower element,but could still be control switch not working for that section.But it will one or the other.

Hotpoint sy36x grill element works fine but when switched on to oven it doesnt heat up, fan working.


it seems to me that it is a fan oven and the top element won't heat up you need a new fan oven element. it is a round element that sits behind the back grill surrounding the fan...

Hotpoint BD52 oven very slow to heat up


You may have one leg of power that is out. First turn off the breakers, then back on. Check it to see if it is better. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug, to the back of the oven. Look inside the back of it and see if you see any fuses. They could be blown as well. If you are getting some heat (red) then it is an indication of a wiring or fuse problem. Now, one last thought here, if you turn it to high heat does it heat up faster? This one lead it to be in the control switch. Let me know how you do.

Hotpoint bottom oven


Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.

They are:

  1. The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
  2. The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
  3. The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
I hope this Helps - Terry

ALWAYS ISOLATE THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE WORKING ON THEI APPLIANCE!
