When you turn the thermostat on the pilot light goes to secondary flame. The flame kicks on to the oven safety valve thermocouple. When it gets hot enough it generates millivolts and opens the safety valve. Here's how to check it; Make sure the flame kicks down and covers the bulb of the thermocouple. You can use a lighter if you're not sure. If no gas comes out It might be the valve that's bad. Now, some of the older models used a flame switch. It looks like a dryer thermostat with two wires on it and the thermocouple coming out of the middle. To check it, short the two wires together or use a ohm meter to see if it's closed.

How do I adjust polite lite on a natural gas stove just tryna convert to natural gas was propane are what do i do?? Just changed that piece on regulator..N that's about it??


no-
the conversion requires the changing of jet sizes for all the units and an adjustment of the air shrouds near the jets
because gas is more dangerous than power , it should only be done by an accredited gas appliance fitter

THE FURANCE IS ABOUT 20 YEARS OLD I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT WENT TO TURN IT ON AND IT WOUNDNT COME ON CHECK POLIT LITE IT WAS OUT WENT TO LITE IT AND IT WOUNDNT LITE


Replace the thermocouple. It is the brass or copper tube that goes into the pilot light to detect the heat from the flame. If it is burned out, the gas valve will not open and the pilot will not light. They are universal and cost less than $10.

I have a GE XL44 gas stove the oven will not stay lite why?


That's bad. Sounds like the burner is dirty.
and the gas belive it or not is blowing the polit out it hit it so fast. The gas can't go in the burner. There should be two screws that hold it in place take it off and clean. See if that will work. Let me know.

GE XL44 gas range, oven dial doesn't have "lite"?


Set the oven for the desired temperature. It will cycle on and off at that temperature.
It will lite automatically.

Oven will not lite


Unplug the unit, change the igniter maybe it does not draw enough ampage.
or check the gas control knob if somebody mistakenly turned it to off position. the ON position should be inline with the gas pipe.

Oven will not lite


Replace the oven ignitor. IT probably still gets red but it has to draw enough current to open the gas valve and yours isnt. Replace the ignitor and it should fix you up.
