Question about Hotpoint RB526 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

I have a Hotpoint electric range. Model RB526. It is only a couple of yrs old. The oven temp is too hot. I set it at 350 degrees and it heats up to 400 degrees. Set it at 325 degrees and it goes to about 375 degrees. Is it a simple fix that I could do myself?

SOURCE: Possible Control board problem

You may not necessarily need a new control panel. Sometimes the oven temperature can be calibrated. Look in your owner's manual (if you have one) for calibration instructions. This will usually take care of the problem. If not, you may have to replace the oven sensor located inside the oven in the upper right or left hand corner of the back wall. Good luck.

Why does the control panel on my Whirlpool electric range get too hot to touch when oven is operating at 350 degrees?


heat transference and radiated heat at that temp is normal

the stove should have an air gap between unit and wall
not pushed up against the wall
and internally insulated

check to see if your whirlpool model oven ever had a safety recall 26301150-vpuqtjtdvoowntuyvcl35auo-4-0.jpg

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

The oven will pre heat to set temp, then when it reaches temp the oven beeps and both oven elements turn off. At this point the control panel (clock LED) shows an F2 error.


Good afternoon.
F2 for hotpoint means oven temp sensor thinks oven exceeded 650 degrees .Did that happen?
Probably not so have your sensor checked or replaced. It should be a probe device in oven back wall.

On my Hotpoint RB787 range, how can I prevent my broiler element from being on any time the oven has been turned on?


There is no adjustment. When set to bake, BOTH elements are supposed to heat. On broil, only the top heats. To answer your question, you can't..........

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

My oven heats up, but then does not maintain the temp.


If it has a pilot then I would say the thermal couple is bad. If it has a glow type ignitor then the ignitor is bad.

MY OVEN IS BAKING AT A LOWER TEMPERATURE


Check to make sure the broil element works. If so then change your oven sensor.

Electric Oven not getting hot enough


Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
