I have a Hotpoint stove / oven and the Oven Set switch

Customer Question
I have a Hotpoint...

I have a Hotpoint stove / oven and the Oven Set switch appears be be faulty. I've checked a number pf places locally and they can't seem to be able to locate the replacement part. Most just shrug their shoulders and say they don't have it and can't get it. From there it's "let me show you this appliance.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Hotpoint is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I can get the model number. hold on a minute

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. I am a radio station engineer and that shouldn't be above my level of intelligence

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Model # is R B525 0J1AD I have no idea when it was made as it was here when we moved in to the house
