Question about Hotpoint RB787 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven won't shut off

I used the self-clean feature on my oven more than 24 hrs ago. It will self- clean for 4 hrs. I turned the oven off with only 36 mins left on the timer. This morning I noticed it was still very warm in the kitchen. The oven was off according to the dial. It was never turned on again since yesterday morning, but upon opening the oven door, I was blasted with immense heat. The oven was still on! I turned the dial 360 degrees back to the off setting, no help. The light, letting me know the oven was on ,lit as I turned the dial. So I unplugged the oven from the wall. Help? Why did this happen? What could be the problem? The oven was purchased in 1996-97 and is a Hotpoint RB787, if that helps.

Tes, sounds like the relays on the board welded shut or the selector is bad. Looks like the clock and selector are all one unit. If you post a complete model number I can give you a part number and you can look it up on the net to get a price. Catriver..post back.

How to use a self clean magic chef oven bought 24 years ago


Self Clean Magic Chef Ovens, clean by Nuking the baked on grime etc... As I recall, invoking the self clean (some models will allow you to specify a time - 2 hours for light cleaning to 4 hours for heavy), will ramp the oven temperature up to as high as 900 degrees F (as opposed to the mid 300 norm). YOu probably want to remove any racks etc before hand, and wipe up crumbs etc...

Once completed, and cooled, wipe out the ash that is left over, witha damp cloth.

I need my kitchen aid oven to unlock


NEVER use the self cleaning feature - again!!

Sounds like my problem two days ago. I have a Kitchen Aid free standing gas oven/range model
KGRI801PWH00. I read online that the thermo-fuse might've blown. I found the thermo-fuse after removing the rear panel. It was at the top/center. Mine is T-O-D (brand) 60F24; Westinghouse #8300802. I ordered mine from appliancepartspros.com for only $34.75; arrived in 36 hrs with regular shipping!! Easy to fix, sure beats several hundred $$ to repairman.

Don't bother to call Kitchen Aid - they'll just blow you off just like the hundreds of complaints said that I found online.

The self cleaning instructions for my Frigidaire Gallery Pro Series Model FEB798WCCH do not inform how long to set timer. Any instructions would be helpful as I've never operated a self cleaning oven...


Hello- The function is automatic when clean button is pushed. Oven will lock, and turn on at full power for about 90 mins. This 'feature' can, and usually does eventually burn out circuits in the control board. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' option, cheerfully promoted by the salesman. Avoid using 'self clean'!  Scrape and clean with light soap/water. Turn on to 450deg. for about 30 min. This is about half the temp. of a 900deg. 'clean' cycle and a lot less expensive in the long run. Please acknowledge this post if info is helpful- have more if needed.- Thanks- Ed

Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.
 The oven must be removed from the wall to change this.
