Gas stove DCS

I just purchased house with gas stove (dcs) it takes to long to start, few seconds to long, and the minimum is still to high to cook something slowly (sauces etc.) can this be fixed, serviced change parts or i need a new stove? No money for that either. Could you please see if you can help me with this problem? Thank you and regards. Elizabeth

Sounds like the thermal fuse may have gone on it.

is it just the stove or does the cooktop work funny too?

a technician shouldn't cost you more than $80.00 to diagnose. part is farily inexpensive too + labour to install.

Dcs 484 oven won't light but ingition bar glows bright

Yep, that's a common problem with these stoves. The igniter has a limited lifespan. You will need to call and order another igniter and probably have someone install it.

Hi, we have a dcs 366 gas range. the pilot light for the oven went out and we can't seem to locate the pilot to re-light. the manual doesn't really go into detail for the oven...only the stove top. is this...

You don't give the model number of your DCS range, but it probably doesn't have a pilot light.
More likely it uses and electronic igniter. Internet search on "gas oven ignitor". I think this
might help you with your problem.

DCS Range constant sparking at all burners even when lighting one

This happens to mine if there is anything on any of the burners, such as food residue or moisture. Check all the burners to see that nothing is touching the burner area where the gas jets are. Even a little water can make this happen.
