I just moved into a house with a hotpoint oven model RGB745BEH7WH. The oven control panel does not work at all, like there is no power to it. The oven is plugged in and the burner ignitors on the stove work fine. Could this be a blown fuse somewhere, and how would I figure out if the whole module itself is bad. Thanks in advance.

Re: oven control panel out
Not likely a bloiwn fuse, you would have to gain acees to the control panel itself and check for incoming power supply, if your geting power to the clock the n youll need to replace clock. in the cabinet somewhere will be a wire diagram/trouble shooter. to aid you along

If your oven is burning everything, it is getting too hot. Therefore the heater is working but the thing that measures the temperature is not. This is called the thermostat and there will be two types, one for each oven.
Google search for Hotpoint UY46 thermostat, there are plenty of suppliers. Make sure you get the correct one for the oven that is burning.
They are about 20-30 pounds to buy and generally easy to change. Just make sure the power is turned off before working on the oven and be careful of sharp edges as it is easy to get cut when removing panels.
The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.
So you have moved to a new house. I am assumeing that the Oven worked fine at the old house. I am also assumeing that you have plugged the Oven into your new house and that is when you noticed that it was not working.
If this is the case then the problem may be that the Breaker in the Electrical Sevice Panel of the new house is off. You need to reset the breaker and the Oven should then work.
Self clean is hard on controls. I do not recommend self clean. Kills expensive parts. If the temp goes above 300 in the control panel, a control panel fuse will melt, killing the power to the control. It looks like this:
The air you can hear blowing will be from the exterior cooling fan, and nothing to do with the main oven.
You need to check to seeif you have got a feed to the oven fan and element, the supply comes from the oven thermostat on the control panel.
Hope this helps.
Control Error, Failed EEPROM
You can try a hard reset . turn off the power for 1 minute.. also you can check the connections to the control .. other then that you will have to repalce the control
Usually with ovens not heating up the element has gone and needs replacing. A few checks to do before going to the expense and trouble of replacing are to check the House Power Box Fuses to make sure none a blown - especially look for the one relating to the Oven or Range. If blown replace the fuse wire. If it blows again you have a problem with the power point or appliance. Does the Oven Fan work? If so chances are the oven is getting power as is the element and your house electrical lines to the Oven are fine and the element needs replacing. Not knowing the particular Brand you have amkes it difficult say how to remove the element. Some elements are accessible from inside the oven - others you have to remove the oven and get access from behind by removing a panel. Whatever you do if you do decide to remove the element MAKE SURE you TURN OFF THE POWER to the Oven. Hope this helps.
