Hotpoint BU72 Cooker - Oven not getting to temprature

Hotpoint BU72 Cooker - Main oven not getting to temperature. Even when turned up to 230 C only reaching about 160 C but the thermostat light is going off as if it's up to temperature.

Rear element by fan appears to be working as very hot to touch (in fact too hot to touch) Not sure if there are other elements to check
Thanks

Replacing outer glass of oven door


This is glass because glass does not burn, does not melt at oven temperatures, and is a pretty good insulator. Also allows the cook to watch the cake rise.

I would not replace with anything but factor glass. Too dangerous, even regular glass is not properly treated to be safe in this environment.

The cash for clunkers gets extended to appliances soon, perhaps this makes a new one more affordable?

Oven will not respond


The knob won't have any effect on the flame size.  The knob controls temperature.  If you're referring to the pilot light staying on and then the main flame not going on...that's another problem.  If the main flame will not go on, the assembly that controls the main flame is likely defective.  If the unit has a thermocouple, you might change it out first.  Sometimes, that's all that is needed and they're cheap.

The cooker stays warm when mains cooker switch is on.


Either teh grill element or the oven heating element is fault or the thermostat or grill regulator, locate which element is warm, if the grill then it is most likely the regulator, if it is the oven it is the thermostat. Engineer

Problem with main fan oven - electric


there is an overheat stat and this is operating and cutting out the oven. the causes are several but here are the main things to look for: oven stat is faulty causing the oven to overheat. you should check over the range to see if stat is reasonably accurate. overheat stat itself is faulty. there is another stat which turns on the casing fan. (this is the fan which is out of sight - not the fan inside the oven) if this stat is faulty and not turning on the casing fan, then the overheat stat will operate. the casing fan is faulty or jammed. lack of ventilation. see if you can narrow it down a bit and get back to me if you wish
