Why your Hotpoint oven is not heating up

From not heating at all to cooking unevenly, Hotpoint ovens can wear out and break with frequent use. If you’re experiencing this issue and curious to understand why your oven isn’t heating up, we’re here to assist. Below, we outline the most common reasons behind this problem.

Tripped circuit breaker

If your Hotpoint oven isn’t heating up, it might be due to a tripped circuit breaker. First, check your home’s breaker panel to see if any breakers are switched off. However, if the circuit trips every time you turn on the electric oven, it’s likely a problem with the circuit or the wiring. In this case, it’s best to contact our licensed technicians for repairs.

Broken heating element

If your heating element is broken, it will prevent your oven from heating up. You might notice the fault with your element just by looking at it. To check if this is the issue with your Hotpoint oven, simply turn it on and see if the element turns red. If it doesn’t, that’s likely why your oven isn’t heating up.

If you suspect a broken heating element, it’s best to seek help from our professionals rather than trying to fix it yourself.

Faulty temperature sensor

Another common issue that can prevent an electric oven from heating up is a broken or faulty oven temperature sensor. If you suspect this is the problem, don’t hesitate to reach out to our experts for assistance. Simply give us a call today, and we’ll send a technician to repair your Hotpoint oven promptly.

Your appliance is unplugged

One frequently overlooked reason why your oven isn’t heating up is that it might be unplugged. This is an easy fix you can handle yourself. Just make sure to double-check that your oven is properly plugged into the outlet.

Thermostat knobs are not positioned

If your oven isn’t heating up, it might be because the thermostat knobs aren’t set correctly. These knobs control the oven temperature. If they’re dispositioned, your oven won’t know the temperature it’s supposed to reach. The good news is that thermostat knobs are inexpensive and easy to install with the help of our experts.

Broken or damaged door

If your oven door isn’t completely shut, it lets heat escape, making it difficult for the oven to reach the correct temperature. A broken or damaged door seal could be the culprit.

Feel free to reach out to our experts for assistance. They can offer the expertise needed to fix or replace the door, getting your oven back in action and heating up properly.
