My 1970's Hotpoint oven was working fine and then one day just stopped working. It's getting power but the bake/broil lights do not turn on nor does the oven. When I turn the oven to self cleaning the light goes on but nothing happens. Is there a diagnosis? Thank you
Answer Hello Len,
If you are getting 240Vac to the unit properly, this sounds like a failure of a relay on the board. We could give a more detailed diagnosis if we could please ask you to provide the full model number from the units' I.D. tag. The model number you provided does not come up as valid so we could not pull a wiring diagram for your unit.
I am getting a message of F3 on my Whirlpool Oven. The oven and broiler do not work but the burners on the stove work.
Answer Hello Cory. 1. Unplug range or disconnect power.
2. Disconnect sensor from harness.
3. Measure sensor value (between connector pins) between 1000 ? @ 32°F (0°C) and 2697 ? @ 900°F (482.2°) (room temperature
approx. = 1080 ?). Also measure from sensor connector to sensor casing for possible short. If measurement does not correlate to
real temperature, or if short is found, replace sensor.
4. Trace wires and connectors to sensor from control, then back to control. If wire or connection is damaged, replace the harness.
5. Reconnect the sensor to the harness.
6. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
7. Plug in range or reconnect power.
8. Press BAKE and START/ENTER. Observe for longer than 1 minute. If failure remains, go to step 9.
9. Unplug range or disconnect power.
10. Replace control.
11. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
12. Plug in range or reconnect power.
13. Verify operation is normal. Go to step 1 and complete checks.
