Unevenly cooked meals

If you have a fan assisted oven that suddenly stops cooking your food evenly it can be very frustrating trying to cook something properly.

Solution: The oven fan is what pushes the heat around your oven evenly, replacing a busted oven fan will help it cook your food evenly once more! See our oven fan replacements

Door won't close properly

Your oven will struggle to heat up and stay warm with a loose door. This can happen after years of opening and close your oven with a bit too much force. 

Solution: If your oven door is hanging off, or is too stiff you probably have a problem with your oven door hinges or the door pin/catch

Oven keeps overheating

If you keep finding that your food is coming out a bit more... crisp than you had intended, you may find that it really isn't to do with your culinary skills after all.

Solution: It may be that your thermostat is no longer able to read the temperature of the oven which is why it keeps heating up. Find replacement oven thermostats here.

My oven is not cooking evenly

If your oven is heating up fine and all the other components are working and you're following the cooking instructions correctly (we have to ask...) then the problem is probably with your fan. A fan assisted oven is designed to better push the heat around your oven cavity, to fix the problem that traditional ovens had. This is to prevent your oven from unevenly cooking your food.

My oven isn't staying at the right temperature

Another reason your oven is not cooking your food evenly is that your cooker may be having trouble maintaining the temperature you set it to. This can happen when you have a faulty thermostat as the over can no longer tell how hot it is getting. The thermostat alerts your oven when it has reached to level you set it to, so if it is broken you may find your oven is changing temperature, either under or overheating your meals.

Hotpoint Oven Troubleshooting 

Do you have a Hotpoint oven? If so, you're not alone! According to Hotpoint's own statistics, every 2 out of 3 homes in the UK have a Hotpoint appliance and one is sold every 19 seconds. 

However, even though these stats are impressive, this doesn't mean you won't come across some oven troubles in the future. We've put together some Hotpoint oven troubleshooting tips to help you with this issue. 

  • The Hotpoint oven fan runs for a long time after cooking

Hotpoint appliances are typically fitted with a cooling fan to stop the oven getting too hot. When the oven is switched off, the fan continues to spin because it is still cooling down the oven. This is nothing to worry about and does not require you to take any action.

However, if your Hotpoint oven fan does not turn off or on, this is cause for concern. A working oven needs fan to cool down after cooking, so it is necessary to get your oven fan replaced if you think it may be broken. 

If you would like to replace your oven fan, you can browse our wide range of fans suitable for a Hotpoint cooker.

  • I am having trouble lighting the gas rings on my Hotpoint cooker

There's nothing more frustrating than a gas oven hob which will not light. If you're having this issue, the first troubleshooting step is to ensure there's nothing blocking the burner or burner caps. 

If you've found they're clean as a whistle, the next step is to check your glass lid (if you have one). If you find this is not in the correct upright position, it could be causing your gas supply to shut off. 

Finally, if neither of these checks seems to solve the problem, you can find a replacement part for your Hotpoint gas rings here. 

  • The clock on my Hotpoint oven isn't turning on

A common problem with Hotpoint cookers is the oven clock wears out and no longer tells the time. While this may seem like a minor problem, if you like to time cooking your food using the oven clock, it can be very frustrating. 

If you find your Hotpoint oven clock is no longer switching on when you turn your oven on, the best solution is to find a replacement. This is not costly and can save you plenty of time. Browse the oven clocks suitable for Hotpoint cookers
