Question about Kitchen Ranges

Hotpoint oven overheating

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?

I have a hotpoint gas range with electronic controls. When i put the oven on preheat the igniter glows but the gas does not come on. this problem happens 50% of time.


You may have a low voltage problem, especially if it occurs at about the same time every day, but more likely you will need to replace the igniter. Even though you see it glowing, often times as they age they start to draw fewer amps, resulting in your exact symptoms.

Hotpoint oven


From MNTECH, "If your oven would light sometimes, but usually not, or take a very long time to ignite, then replace the oven igniter. Even though it probably is glowing, it needs to draw a specific minimum electrical current (in amps) for the gas safety valve to open and release the gas. Also low voltage can affect how many amps the igniter draws, so that may be a factor, but not as often."

I live in Japan. I got a brand new range in june and it has had this problem for four month. The igniter glows but the gas never (or rarely) releases. Often it would preheat but not maintain the temp while baking. **augh** After reading MNTECH's solution I got a transformer and plugged my range into it to change the voltage (100 to 110) and I haven't had a problem since. THANK YOU MNTECH FOR POSTING THIS SOLUTION

Preheat taking long time


If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.

Oven takes a long time to preheat


Before we go into diagnosis mode, call the customer service # in the owners manual and complain about the problem.  They usually will make a concession when it is this close to the warranty period.  Let me know what you find out.

Bake part of kenmore not working seems to take to long


Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced.  Look and see if it glows.  If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite.  Let me know what you find.

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
