I have a Westinghouse Silhouette upright natural gas oven which burns out Solinoid valves within a couple of months. I recently had the solinoid replaced under warranty & was advised that it was being caused by a falty ingnition pack. They have told me that this part is now unavailable. Please advise if this is correct Model # GWC 705 FWNG 00 sERIAL # 33702205

That could be a couple things, it could be your DPFE, your EGR valve, or the EGR valve solinoid, or it could be the vacuum leak as well.

Can I use an Elgas swap n go cylinder on my gas stove ( with it's own regulator ) on my westinghouse stove until I can afford to get a plumber to install it properly? What are the risks? Is it the same...

Are you talking about putting an LP cylinder onto a NATURAL GAS oven?If you are,please do not do it,unless you know about it.The regulator sometimes will have two options for gas input.One side is for LP,the other for natural.They HAVE to have different internal features on the regulator because the 2 gases have COMPLETELY DIFFERENT properties.For one,LP is a liquid,natural gas is a gas/vapor.That alone produces a whole different set of requirements for each and they ARE NOT compatible with one regulator.It is far from a one valve for all type application if you know what I am trying to say.Thanks,Greg

Hi Nancy
I have to ask you a couple of questions. Is the range set up for LP or Natural gas? Blow-tourch sounds are normally caused by to much air going into the burner. If you can look at the burner safely the flames should burn just out of the burner. If the flames are way off the burner the air adjustment is way off or you range is set for the wrong gas. Are your top burners OK?

The oven flame comes into the oven around the oven bake cover and all burners and broiler have a perfect flame. this is a brand new oven

Are you on natural gas or propane? If you are on propane did you have it converted form natural gas. Due to the difference in orface size you will be getting more gas flow then needed. If it was converted you need to contact the store and advise them it has a possible gas valve problem.

Converting broiler in oven from natural gas to lp gas on hotpoint gas range

On the oven portion you will need to turn the oriface clockwise all the way till it bottoms out. This is the conversion from natural gas to lp gas on all gas ovens. Also make sure the valve down toward the back has been flipped off of nat. to lp. Good luck

I have a Hotpoint oven that is more than 5 years old, and it burns natural gas. when i use the oven, it will burn, but it doesn't seem to burn all the gas while it is on. The gas company has checked the...

Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! First of all you clearly did the right thing by having the gas company come by. Most likely the safety valve on your stove is defective and needs to be replaced. The safety valve is supposed to prevent accidental gas flow.
Here is the other issue. In home repairs have become so pricey once any thing is out of warranty that it is always a judgment call as to what to do. The new gas stoves are much more efficient than the models of 5 years ago, they are much better when it comes to baking with uniform results, etc. etc. etc. There fore, you could call a few appliance repair shops and get estimates, which would allow you to make a more educated decision about whether to repair or replace. Best regards, J.

Bosch HGS442UC Gas Oven won't light

Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

Reading the user manual, it states that the flame initially comes on low, until it is "sensed" by the flame sensing device. This to me sounds suspiciously like the flame isn't being sensed and so never gets increased to the normal level.
I've not had time for a proper look at it.... but from a quick glance this morning this looked like a "flame rectifier" probe next to my burner (as we commonly use in boilers to sense if the gas burner is lit). This is just a metal probe. They send a high-ish AC voltage signal (Sine wave) from it, through the flame, to the earthed metal case. The flame acts like a diode (yes it really does work !) and simple electronics detects the change in the applied signal (rectified) due to the flame. I know from personal experience they (the probes) get coated with crud (carbon, etc) and need a good clean. I suggest you try cleaning both it and the metal area opposite it. If necessary the probes metal tip could be GENTLY rubbed with very fine Emmery cloth, etc, if badly coated.
Other than that, if it is sensing the flame, then it must be the gas control device (solenoid valve ?) that is jammed, blocked or just defective.

Gas oven smell

I have the same issue. I live in an apartment, and I had maintenance come by to check it out. They say that it is carbon (white, ashy) built up around the burners from where the gas is burning. They clean it, but then it comes back. I'm wondering what else it can be because I feel like death every time we use the oven. And I know, I shouldn't use it! Well, I like to cook, and I'm stuck in this crappy place until the end of my lease. I don't know what to do either. If my maintenance actually figures out the problem, I'll let you know.
