The Main Oven temperature control which is the knob at the right of clock is a thermostat and is working like an electrical switch. So you need to replace the temperature control.

If you have already replaced the element then you can easily remove the temperature control knob. Just take care to note the wire where each one goes and a very simple way just take a photo.

The red light you mention is a pilot light which mean when is on the thermostat control is switch on so power goes to the element.

The main oven is not getting to the correct temperature. The element is clearly working fine so is it most likely to be the thermostat?


That would seem to be the problem. It is a simple process to replace, but make sure that the main switch is OFF.

The main oven of my DY46 Hotpoint is not heating up


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.

My oven wont heat up light and fan work I have visualy checked the element and it looks ok but not sure how do you know/test,if ok what else could it be hotpoint DY46


Even though the element look's o/k, it is more than likely faulty, more so if the fan is working o/k.
The only 100% test to make sure if it is faulty, is to test it with a meter.
In my experience I would advise you to replace the element.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Oven not working


You need to detrmine if you are getting a supply to the oven element, if you are , then the new element is faulty, if no supply, then you are going to have to work back from source.

Oven not heating


Hello.
If the fan is working, but there is no heat, then it is the fan oven element that needs to be replaced.
It has nothing to do with timer on this occasion.
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the round element.
Undo fixing screws,and remove element, disconnect leads and fit onto new element, refit new elemrnt, replace cover, and job done!!!

Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thankyou

Display works but no lights on either oven and no fan


If the display is flashing, it sounds like the timer needs resetting
U need to refer to your instuctions on how to do this..
If it does it again once u have reset it, then I suspect that the oven element has blown..
Pls leave feedback.
Thanks.

Hotpoint dy46 x oven


Hi there,

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.

Regards
Bryan
