Question about Hotpoint RGB528 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven & broiler not working

I have a GE gas oven

Hotpoint Electric Ignition
Model #: RGB528 ET4WW
Serial #: D5156500P
yesterday the oven and broiler stoped working. I thought I had a pilot light but I'm not sure. I tried turning the gas on and lighting it with a match and it didn't work. I do not smell any gas so I'm guessing a safety valve has shut the gas off. The stovetop burners all work normally. The clock works as usual too. I can't find a manual for this. Do I have a pilot light? if so how do I reignite it? if not what are possible causes? I'm trying to fix this myself.

    Yes I have the same problem, everyone I talk to tells me I must have a pilot that needs to be lite but I have tried that and it does not light. The knob for the stove doesn't click like ones to the top of the stove either . Does that mean something?

    unplugged oven yesterday to install flooring. When plugged back in, the stovetop burners work fine, and the broiler works; but the oven will not ignite. Is there a pilot light or something? Thank you. Becky in Rochester, NY

GE Gas Oven and broiler not working

No, there is a "hot-point" ignition for each but they are both controlled by the ignition module, easy fix, follow the wires (2) from the Broiler ignition point.... they will lead you to the module. More then likely it's wire connection came apart.....

My bet is that the broiler ignitor has been out for a while and you just never knew it...
I would change the ignitor as a first try to fix it it is themost common failure..

Hello, Can't find model/serial number. Older Tappan custom gas stove. Burners work but oven does not. Told it has electric ignition that could be problem. Where to find it, how to remove, where to get...

Serial number labels are usually located in any one of a number of places -

Under the cooktop in one of the corners
Inside the oven door frame (not on the door)
Behind the bottom drawer pullout on the oven, left hand side
Oven back.

If this unit is anything less than 20 years old, there will be a label somewhere.

Reply back you findings and I can give you more information as to how to repair, and we can identify part numbers. You might also try and see if you can drill down through parts when only knowing the manufacturer.
