Question about Hotpoint RB787 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Storage drawer - design flaw?

The bottom storage drawer of my new Hotpoint RB787 does not slide in-out properly. It comes off-track every time I open or close it whether it has contents or not. Now it is stuck open and off-track. Any suggestions? Lynne

This was installed by contractors for the apartment complex and they say ALL of these models have the same problem. How can this be?

Yea find it hard to believe that a product would be built this way!!, without looking at it would imagine that the tracks going back on both sides are too close together, which usually happens when the unit is mishandled upon delivery, a quick call to an authorized servicer will correct problem( it is a warr issue any way, and from the sound of it hell have a lot of warr work in your development

I have a 1976 Gaffers & Sattlers slide in range I want to replace. Any idea how to remove it? Thanks

this taken from ehow site:
Slide-in ranges and freestanding ranges use the same installation techniques, with one minor difference: the slide-in range rests on the edge of your counter top. Removing a slide-in range is not difficult but will require a friend to assist. Removing the storage drawer from the slide-in range first will give you access to the power cord and gas shut-off valve, if your unit uses gas
    • 1 Pull the bottom storage drawer out as far as it will slide. Lift up the front of the drawer and unhook the back of the drawer from the drawer guide. Pull the drawer away from the range.
    • 2 Reach under the slide-in range and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Turn the gas valve to the off position on the house line coming from the wall.
  • 3 Lift the top of the slide-in range with the assistance of your helper, and pull the range forward enough that you can access the back of the range.
  • 4 Go behind the range and locate the connection between the house gas line and the range gas line. Disconnect the flexible gas line from the house gas line with a pair of channel lock pliers or a pipe wrench.
  • 5 Lift up on the rear of the slide-in range while your partner lifts the front. Slide the range out of the cabinet opening and out of the house. Lifting the unit will prevent unnecessary damage to your counter tops.

    I want to reinstall a oven storage drawer on a electric LG oven

    I don't think you need to remove a slide rail. They should slide out by hand and then set drawer back into it. usually have to tile drawer up some to start.

    Oven won't ignite

    Your range is a Direct spark model.ce00970.jpg8278a1e.pngIf you want a Direct spark manual, let me know. The module gets confirmation from relay on the oven control and sends dc power to the gas valve. I suspect that gas valve be cause the top burners work which is usually and indicator that the module is fine. The terminals ohms should be 216 ohms between each of the 3. If any are open the valve won't work.
