Hotpoint RGB745BEA3AD Stove-Ignitor?

Dear Sirs,
Our Hotpoint range (oven) sometimes does not light off. The top range works fine, but the oven sometimes does not light? When it does work it works fine. Is this an ignitor,gas valve or thermostat problem? Thanks Frank.

Given what you have said in the question, I would have to say it is to stay on.

SOURCE: old hotpoint gas stove. burners and broiler work

Usually ranges have a pilot at the bottom. Take the bottom panel off and there should be a button that says 'pilot' hold the button down for a few seconds to let the air purge out. Then while still holding the button down, light the pilot with a match or a lighter of some sort. Continue holding the button down for a few more seconds until the thermocouple has warmed up. (You'll know the thermocouple has warmed up if you can release the pilot button and the pilot stays lit)

Can't seem to access Hotpoint Stove Pilot Light?


Your range uses electronic ignition, not pilot lights. For surface burners the igniter sparks when the gas valve is turned to the "light" position. All burners should spark when any gas valve is in the light position. For the oven the ignitor is also electric but does not spark but rather heats up or glows. What is the problem with your range?

My oven won't turn on but the broiler and stove work fine. I think it could be either the shut-off valve or ignitor but the diagram for the position of the shut-off valve isn't very helpful.

I have a Hotpoint RGB745 gas range everything works on the stove except for the oven. It now will not come on. the ignitor glows but will not light and if it does the oven will go out. the broiler works...


The ignitor gets weak and dim and does not allow for the safety device to open and let the gas flow. The igniter must pull at least 3.2 amps. I have a short video HERE

Oven burner won't light


You likely have a bad ignitor. It's like a mini element that heats up and then ignites the gas once the valve releases it. When the ignitor gets old it doesn't glow bight enough or draw enough amperage so the gas valve won't open. If you set bake and see a glow coming from under the plate in the oven but the burner never lights that's your culprit. They probably cost about $50-$80. Good luck!

Stove top works oven wont heat on 465


the ignitor needs replacing, that's the glow that you see. it's not getting hot enough to open the safety valve.
