Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

Oven does not maintain temperature while cooking. Oven will come on and preheat as it should but then temperature drops while cooking and remains below preheat value. Every 15 minutes or so we set the temperature to 5 degrees higher and wait for the preheat just to keep it going. The self clean function and broil work OK. I have changed both the thermocouple and the control board. Thanks for your ideas.

    Stove makes a humming noise and will not get up to desired temperature.

    Oven does not maintain temperature. Must keep raising temperature to keep it at needed temperature. If set at 350, it will drop to 250 until I raise it to 400 - then it will go to 450. Broiler is fine. Help!

I eventually replaced the oven ignitor. That has solved the problem.

Hotpoint Gas Range does not hold temperature

We had the same problem, my husband took ours apart and noticed a loose wire off the relay board for the oven. So far it's working again, we had it at 450 for awhile and it kept the temp, then lowered it to 325 for 1/2 hour and it kept the temp, yippee! It better keep working, because he's cooking a ham on Christmas!

Oven will come up to preheat,but will not maintain temp. the ignitor will come back on but burner will not light again.

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

The temperature sensor in the oven needs replacing. It is located in the back wall of the oven. About 3 inches long,metal and about the size of a thin pencil.

From MNTECH, "If your oven would light sometimes, but usually not, or take a very long time to ignite, then replace the oven igniter. Even though it probably is glowing, it needs to draw a specific minimum electrical current (in amps) for the gas safety valve to open and release the gas. Also low voltage can affect how many amps the igniter draws, so that may be a factor, but not as often."

I live in Japan. I got a brand new range in june and it has had this problem for four month. The igniter glows but the gas never (or rarely) releases. Often it would preheat but not maintain the temp while baking. **augh** After reading MNTECH's solution I got a transformer and plugged my range into it to change the voltage (100 to 110) and I haven't had a problem since. THANK YOU MNTECH FOR POSTING THIS SOLUTION
