Hotpoint Oven Intermittently Works
« on: July 25, 2010, 01:25:13 PM »
I have 2 issues with my oven.

1.  It sometimes does not ignite as it should but that is rare.

2.  After igniting and preheating, it does not reignite regularly to maintain a constant temp. I sometimes have to briefly turn it off and back on so it retains a constant temp.

I've had the gas company out but, of course, when the man was here it was working flawlessly! After he left it screwed up again. LOL

What do I need to get this fixed? Can I repair it myself or do I need a qualified tech?

Thanks.

Model RGB745WEH3WW

Replace the glow bar ignitor.
It is loosing resistance causing slow light and poor re-light.

Also verify 1100 ohms reading for the temperature sensor.
