This is a problem.
You will have to check whether she uses Natural gas or propane.
The oven might and most likely will be set for the other.
if the problem just occured it means the the oxygen supplied is to little.
It can be that dirt buildup at the gas line prevents the oxygen to mix with the gas.

Please be careful and check it out directly and please do not use untill fixed. Carbon monoxide is quickly build up and you will notice only when too late

    Check all the valve and safety valves. Orfices might be dirty too

    Idea you can get HERE

    And HERE you can get your manual which will tell you how to clean this problem. If she however changed gas (either supplier or gas) and did not convert the stove than that is the problem

This is caused by incomplete combustion of the gas.

The pores of the burner have been blocked by some food particles or the pores have not been cleaned since longtime,so try to remove the blockage thats creating fumes of the carbon and also try to maintain the time and temprature depending on the food u make or bake.this may help to prevent such problems in future. wish u success.

Hotpoint gas oven doesn't light


What is the complete model number of your unit?

Hotpoint gas stove. burners work, oven and broiler do not.


Probably the safety valve. This unit broils and bakes off the same gas burner. A spark ignitor lights the pilot and this save gas because no standing pilot is needed. It takes a few minutes for the thermocouple bimetal combo to release the gas. When the temp gets to the desired rate then the bulb on the oven control closes off the flow of gas. To recap: The flow of gas comes from a regulator along a rail which supplys the gas to the top burners and the oven control. older models had pilot light tubing going down to the oven and to the top burners. This newer style uses a spark module to light off the top burners and the oven. So when yall turn the the oven on the spark ignitor lights the pilot first and then after the mercury bulf thermocouple heats up the bimetal inside the valve opens allowing gas to flow out to the pilot and ignite the gas burner. the temp rises and the mercury bulb oven control expands closing off the flow but not the gas safety valve. I would suspect the safety valve on this one.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.
