Question about Hotpoint RA520 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Today the oven elements do not seem to be heating up and the light that is on the front of the stove does not come on indicating that the oven is on. The burners continue to work fine. The rest of the model number is W8WH and the sn is: TH185848N. Any thoughts? Thanks, Jack Harrill

Hello Jack,

I think, your oven is controled by a timer?
If so, there is a problem with the timer. Timers are often source of problems. When I refurbish a cooker and tghe timer is gone, I never replace it. They are very costly.
You can bypass the timer. When you google on "bypass the oven timer" you can find solutions.

WHEN YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS KIND OF WORK, THEN LEAVE IT TO A QUALIFIED ENGINEER.

The link I sent you is just for information. Succes, Dik
Well found you when tried to bypass my timer too For

check you outlet make sure it has 240 volts coming out. it might be your house breaker 1 side bad it is a breaker with 2 points in it 1 side will work and give you 120 volts but the other side is burned out you need both points in contact to give you 240 volts good luck and make sure you use a volt tester you can buy at any hardware

SOURCE: stove does not work now that we have removed a broken element

Carleen,
Thanks for the reply.

OK... I know this sounds odd and all... but all of the components (elements in the oven specifically) have to be installed and working correctly for the oven to operate properly.

Most people don't know this, but even when the oven is turned off and sitting there peacefully waiting for something to cook, there is STILL 120 Volts at one of the terminals on the element. Know what that means? That means that it is constantly (always) powered up! It also means that it is a necessary component involved in applying 220 volts to all the OTHER (cook top burners anyone?) components.

So... to take care of this and to bring you oven (and cook top) back to life, ya gotta go get yourself a new element and install it. OK?

Do you have the model number? If you do, give it to me and I'll look up the part number for you, deal?

SOURCE: hotpoint electic stove, the burners and the oven not working

Is there any sign of life? Does the oven light come on or does the clock work? Just for kicks, go and reset the breaker - it should be a double breaker for a 220V appliance - sometimes half will throw and still leave 110v that will run the light / clock.

you will need to replace the control board that contains the clock readout,any power surges ruins these electronics instantly,this can be replaced by removing the rear cover on the back of the unit and remove screws securing the electronic module

While cleaning oven I lifted bottom element heard a pop. Now neither the stove or oven will not come on. The indicator lights do not light up either.


The "pop" was the sound of the heating element shorting to ground so naturally nothing works now.

The indicator lights operate on 120 volts whereas the elements operate on 220 volts.
Using an electrical test meter go between the two hot legs and see if you are getting 220 volts. If not you have an open or non completed circuit.
Do not test from one leg to ground as you will probably read 120 volts for each leg. By reading across both legs you should get 220 volts.

Oven will not heat


Although I am not familiar with this oven, living in the u/k, I would say that without any doubt the oven element(s) have failed, more so if the fan is working, so I would have hesitation that you replace the suspect element (s)..
Plz let me know how you get on.Thanks.
