Question about Hotpoint SY21 Style Line Gas Single Oven
When using grill, it will ignite correctly, but when using the oven the oven lights spiradically, if i hold the door switch in and light with a lighter it will work, then if i take my finger off the switch and close the door it will ignite. This happens maybe once a week and the rest of the time it lights ok.
if the grill is constant sparking when the oven was on and turns off when the oven is not in use then u either have a defective pcb/ht lead or electrode if it is self lighting or if you have to push in a button then this button or control will have a problem

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.

it seems to me that it is a fan oven and the top element won't heat up you need a new fan oven element. it is a round element that sits behind the back grill surrounding the fan...

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
