Question about Hotpoint Kitchen Ranges
When you bake in your oven, the element below the rack heats. Broiling causes the element above the rack to heat.
The bake and broil heating elements may be identical or slightly different in shape, size, etc. They often look like this:
It is possible that your bake element is not heating evenly. What you're describing sounds like the mid part of the element is not getting as hot as the sides - leaving the middle of the dish you're cooking undone.
The element is pretty simple and straight forward to replace. Many cost between $10 and $40. Shut off the oven /stove. Unplug or shut off circuit breaker / remove fuses. There is often a couple screws that hold the element to the plug in the oven. They are usually in the holes shown above in the back metal plate. Once the screws are removed, the element can be pulled straight out of the plug.
Insert the new element in the reverse of removal and secure with the screws. Open a window in the kitchen. Restore power to the stove and select BAKE for 300 degrees or so. This will allow the oils and dust that may be coating the element to burn off before cooking with it. A very small amount of light smoke and a slight burning smell may be detected this first time used.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.
