Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a Hotpoint range that had been taking a long time cycle off during a preheat even though the oven seemed to attain the temperature that I was setting easily. I presumed that the thermostat or temp probe was failing and that I would need to see if I could replace it.
Recently the oven overheats regardless of the temperature setting with the elements constantly on and turning the dial down to see where it would cycle off would make one think that it hadn't even begun to warm.
There is (what appears to be) a temp probe located inside upper center rear area of the oven near the broil element that looks pretty crispy - including the wire that goes out of it and exits through a small hole in the rear wall and now appears to be lacking any thermal insulation - presuming that there was some orginally.
Is this a replaceable part on these models and where would one purchase the part if it is available? Should I be looking for an additional problem?
Model: RB525 S1AD
Yes this is repairable, the probe in oven called a thermostat,that wire that goes out the back small hole goes up to the oven temp. knob ie thermostat. part # .WB20K10004 you can find it at

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below. Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic
