Question about Fagor 5HA-196 X Single Oven

Gas to stay on

I have a very old Fagor single oven in my rented apartment. The gas to the oven will light when I push down on the knob, but the light goes out when I let go of the it. How do I get the gas to stay on? The stovetop is no problem.

    Well, what is strange is that I have to push down on the knob to release the gas for the oven. Once I stop pushing down on the knob, the gas stops being released. For the stovetop I do not have to push down on the knob, so the gas just continues to be released.

Push knob in on oven sparks & lights release knob flames go out


Often on ovens you have to hold the knob down for a period of time before the flame will stay alight.


Try getting the oven lit then holding the knob down for 30 seconds. That should be more than enough time if that is indeed the problem.

Is it a new oven or has the problem just arisen? It

replace the gas safety valve thermocouple,it has a thin coil of copper colored tubing going from the safety gas valve into the pilot light flame and as the flame heats the copper tube end it keeps the gas valve open to supply gas to the unit,they get old from being in a flame and cant signal the gas valve to stay open any longer,they just unscrew out of the gas valve and the opposite end is positioned in the tip of the pilot flame to heat it

I don't have the model number for this range but it's a very old magic chef gas oven. What I need is the oven temperature knob. The knob used to have all of the temperature numbers printed on it however...


If you go any hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot) they have universal knob replacement kits. Take your old knob with you and ask for help from someone who looks like they know something (the old guy). Its so much cheaper this way, exact replacement knobs can run $20 or more each. Good luck!!

Propane not getting to oven... stove top works fine..


The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

Gas ove will not stay lighting


Hi there you need to change the ffd on your oven FFd stands for flame faliure device. its like an temperature controlled switch. it is located in the oven and this device is what lets the gas go through once it has reached a certain temp. It must only be done by a corgi qualified engineer and to be honest your loooking at about 100 pounds.
