LP gas stove, piolet light only lit on one side

Moving into a house that comes with an LP gas cook stove. The pilot light only stays lit on one side, and you can smell gas in the room. How can I find out what the problem is with the other side of the stove. I have not tried to light the oven, yet.
Thanks

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

SOURCE: Burners work,Broiler works but oven does not preheat

If everything works on your range, but the oven, the most likely culprit is the igniter for the BAKE manifold. What is confusing me, though is the statement in your question where you say the "oven will light up, but never get hot". Yet, you say the oven does not ignite. Can you clarify this? In some ovens the BAKE and BROIL manifolds BOTH light when preheating, to reduce the warm up time. Once the desired temperature is reached the manifold not in use, will shut off.

In any case, on a gas range, the burners for the BAKE and BROIL manifolds use an electric glow bar type igniter. There's a separate igniter for EACH burner. When you make a bake or broil selection on your oven control, the respective igniter begins to glow. After the igniter reaches a certain current potential, the gas safety valve is opened, gas flows to the manifold, and voila! You have ignition. It can take as long as 90 seconds for the burner to ignite. What can happen over time, is the igniter becomes weak or fails. If the igniter becomes weak, it will still glow, but it never reaches the desired current potential to open the gas safety valve. The result: you end up with an igniter glowing with no ignition. And, if you're like me, you're left scratching your head wondering why the thing isn't working when it "looks" like it is. You can easily tell if the igniter is working by opening your oven door and selecting bake. Watch the oven pan in the bottom of the oven. You should see an orange glow coming from under it. It here's no glow at all, the igniter has probably failed. If there IS a glow, a current reading will tell if it's within tolerance. The following link explains more on these igniters and how to replace one:

The bake igniter is a common fail item as it gets used more frequently than the broil function. On your range both igniters are interchangeable. You can purchase replacements on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. The part number is WB2X9154. Shop all three sites for the best price.

I hope this helps you. If my assessment of your symptoms is wrong, or if you need further assistance, please let me know.

Stove knobs only light pilot and cook on high.


Most likely the holes where the gas comes out are dirty so it is only staying lit when there is a lot of gas coming out. That part comes off very easily. Try taking them off and soaking them in your sink with a degreaser, like Dawn dishsoap or something of that sort. Let them air dry and try using them again.

I own a Comstock-Castle Range model C330-11.It has been converted to use propane. It has 4 burners @ 13,000 BTU ea and a griddle @ 20,000 BTU on the stove top. It has a single oven with no broiler @ 25,000...


Castle ranges don't require a electrical plug. If converted to LP/propane make sure the water column (WC) is set to 10 inches. If it is less you will have pilot light problems even if the thermocouple is strong. If set at 10 inches, most likely problem is the thermocouple. Correct replacement at Castle is approx. $25. The manual for current ranges should cover most issues but the Castle stopped making the C series ranges in the 80s. All controls and most parts are still available.

Pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range


Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

60" double oven gas Garland stove


We use a Garland from the 1960's and pilot lights ARE scary and should make you nervous. This is why they are no longer allowed in new gas ranges. I mounted an inline gas shut off to the stove where the gas enters (on mine this is right in front on the left side). It turns on and off like a burner and when we are done cooking we simply shut off the gas there. To light the burners or the stove I use one of those long reach lighters. I go to bed knowing that NO gas is coming in.
We love the stove, it makes cooking more fun.
Good Luck!
