OK, this is my first visit/post so bear with me.

I have a 30+ year-old Hotpoint RB734 free standing electric range and am having problems with the oven. Frequently, not always, the oven (or broiler) cuts out and power is not available until the whole unit cools down. Is this a thermostat problem? The range owes me nothing at this point but I'd prefer a quick fix if that's possible.

All suggestions gratefully received.

Will need the rest of the model number as that shows to be a built in oven.  However the thermostat doing this would be odd.  It is possible there is something wrong with the electrical to your oven, cutting the oven off when it is drawing too many amps....

Sorry. The complete model number is RB734002HT.

Does this model have a high temperature cutout sensor that could be acting up?

Ok found your range on the old H/P fisch, page 117, B6, ...RB734*02    The first 0 just means the voltage.  HT probably Harvest Gold.....  Mfd. August 1973.  Lots ot stuff in there.  It does have a fuse on the left side of the oven but is just a 15 amp type S plug, obtain locally.  If this blew your oven would be dead.  In the console you have a circut board behind the oven Rheostat.  Looks like inside of the back panel is a transformer and a temperature switch.  Lots of stuff in there that could be going south and by the looks of things some of these may be NLA but you will need to see where the voltage to the oven is stopping when it cuts out.

there is a thermal switch in the upper rear left that is notorious for failure- need to pull oven and remove from rear-looks like a tube with wire terminals on the back.
