If you disconnect it, you will loose functions to the oven so you will need to replace the clock/control board. Here is the part to order.

SOURCE: My hotpoint gas stove does

Well lets think about it. If you see the ignitor glowing then you have a complete circuit. That means the oven control is sending down juice to the ignitor. The oven safety is alloing for continuity because the ignitor is indeed coming on. So what in the heck could be the problem. All the components SEEM to be working. The answer is simple. The ignitor WILL get WEAK and not put out enough AMPS to open the bi-metal inside that safety valve. The way to know for sure is to clamp on an ammeter to the system and do a simple amp draw check, however, we aint all got a hundred dollar ampmeter to check amp draw with.
Look at the ignitor,is it orange or very bright? If it is a mellow orange the chances are it is weak. Replace it.

That's you ignitor. They get weak. If it has a glow that is dim orange that is a sign. Another sign of a weak glowbar is you can kick the oven and make her lite off. themobilian_467.jpg

SOURCE: I have a Hotpoint gas

Most gas ranges with electronic ignition aren't equipped to have a straight pilot ignition.
I'm don't even think they make conversion kit because of the routing of the gas tubing for the pilot source.

Usually you have to turn the gas knob way over to get the "click-click-click" of the igniter.
Its just as easy to turn on the gas and light with a match...or a long butane lighter.
Even a "striker" used in welding will provide a source of ignition.
A last ditch effort would be to get a replacement gas grill igniter...all ya gotta do is place the bottom of igniter on metal surface and press red button. (kinda works like a spark plug) and no A/C needed.

Hope this helps some.

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?

How to disconnect beeping hotpoint stove digital timer/clock?


Good Afternoon Patti,

I understand that your Hotpoint stove digital timer/clock is beeping and you are wondering how to disconnect it. I suggest resetting your stove by either unplugging it or disconnecting the power at your home's circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, if your stove is still beeping, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause of the beeping is. They will also be able to assist with repairs, if needed. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

All pilots ignite when 1 gas knob is used on one burner


All igniters will spark when you turn on any burner but only the one you have turned on will allow gas through to ignite.

Electrical power is off on my Hotpoint 183D6027G069, even though power is on for all other appliances and all circuit breakers checked normal.


I'm guessing this is a gas / propane stove - so the power is likely 120v if in N. America. If this is the case, I would unplug the stove and plug it into another outlet. If none is close enough, you should be able to run an extension cord to determine if it is an outlet or stove problem.

The 120v is needed on gas stoves mostly for lights, electronics, clock, ignitors, etc. It is not for heating / cook of foods so a decent cord should be fine to use. If it still refuses to function on a known to be good outlet, the power outage you had has caused a problem in the stove and will likely require service.

GE gas stove top igniters won t stop clicking


I got this problem yesterday. My 6-month old GE range/stove top was being cleaned by a cleaning lady and suddenly, the igniters started clicking nonstop. I had to shut down the circuit breakers. I googled the problem, and it seemed clear that the "spark switches" got moisture on them. The best site which described this is: http://www.appliance411.com/archive/25012_ge_gas_cooktop_not_working_.shtml

Some people said you could dry them with a blow dryer, and others said you need to replace these switches (which is not too expensive, but takes some time/skill). I was hoping against this, so I tried something along those lines: I removed all the parts of the stovetop - the grill, the "cap", the metal funky piece, etc. until there was nothing but the surface of the stove and holes going down to the igniter area. Then, I took an electric fan and kept it pointed at the stovetop all night long. After about 10 hours, I turned the circuit breaker back on. No more clicking! And the burners all work! So, I think I essentially did the "hair dryer" solution, but did it more longterm without having to watch the clock to see if I did it long enough. Anyway, I don't normally post these things, but this discovery really helped me and I hope it helps someone else!
