Hotpoint BU62 double oven I can't get the top oven to work as a grill. The oven/grill selector button (second from left) says plate warm then the temperatures, no full grill or half grill. The oven functions as an oven o.k. The cooker is set to manual.

The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.
All appliances must have a rating plate attached. This gives the load etc. It hsa to be there by law, and on some appliances, is duplicated on the back. Max draw on a double oven would be 3 elements and a fan.
electronic clock I presume. first of all turn power off then back on. Clock display will now be flashing.
press and hold the two buttons far left and hold in. at the same time press the + or - button to set clock. You should also have a pan icon between the hours and minutes iluminated which means you are in manual mode
The fan oven element needs to be replaced in the Hotpoint 6150 cooker.
Access is by removing the inner rear cover of the oven, there you will see the element.
Replace with a new one.
It is possible the base element is faulty in the top oven of the Hotpoint EW95,
The other possibility is that the high speed grill element is only part working.You need to check both these elements.
If the fan is working o/k in the main oven , but not getting hot, then you need to replace the element.
If it does heat, then it could be a faulty thermostat or possibly selector switch.
Unless you have a good working knowledge of electrics and know how to use a meter, then I would suggest you call some one in.
Plz rate my solution
If the display is flashing auto, then you need to reset it to manual, otherwise oven will not work,
The grill should still work regardless..If you have your handbook, refer to (What if something goes wrong).
If no hand book, type in HOTPOINT USER MANUALS in your browser bar, and follow the links.
