If you have a HOTPOINTelectric Cooker or Fan Ovenwhich is not heating it could be one of the following problems.
1, If the fanmotor inthe back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normallylittle red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new ovenelement, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from ourwebsite these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the HOTPOINTelement youwill have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you willsee the fan and element,if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where ithas blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuitie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.
2, If your HOTPOINTfan oven is getting warm buttakes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than theother, then you need to check if your oven fanmotor is working you will seethe blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fanmotor isnot blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fanmotor is a little more expensive and a bit moreinvolved.
3. If you have theopposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then youwill need to replace your HOTPOINToven thermostat
4, A quite commonand easily overlooked answer is if your HOTPOINToven is not working at all ie:no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer intoAUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

If it has a timer, then make sure it is set to manual, and not auto, otherwise the oven will not come on.
What usually happens is, if you have a power cut, or switch the oven off, then the timer automatially goes to auto when the power is on again.
Please rate my solution.

It will be the element that has gone, and it is easy to replace.
Remove the cover at rear of oven compartment, and you will see the fan element, just undo fixing screw,and replace element.

SOURCE: De Dietrich oven not working!
I suspect that it is the oven lock that needs replacing. I bought a De Deitrich oven (pyroclean) in Sept 2007. The oven failed to heat in Aug 2009. The oven lock needed replacing which meant the unit had to be removed from the wall. It was replaced under guarantee but failed again in June 2010 and was replaced at a cost of €140 by enginneer. I am very dissappoined in the oven and expected to have no problems with it considering the DeDeitrich name. I would not recommend it to a friend. By the way the clock is easy to use if you follow the instructions exactly. Oven used by two careful owners only.
