Hello, my name is***** lights 2

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

George-Allsorts :

When lights 2 & 4 are flashing on your Hotpoint BFV620 the system is indicating to you that the element is not working for whatever reason

Take off the right hand side panel and test the heater with a multimeter to see if it is open circuit... If it is not, then there are other things you can check like the Main PCB and the wiring.. The issue is most likely the Element though

George-Allsorts :

How did you get on with the problem? Do you need any firther assistance?
