Old Summit stove makes loud banging noise intermittently


I live in an old brownstone, and unfortunately have a very old stove as well. The brand is Summit. There was a leak in the oven, so I had the gas company turn off the ignition and have to light the range with a match. Last night after using the stove top it began making loud noises about once an hour or so.
Any idea on what this could be?
FYI, the ignition was shut off some time ago, and it just began making this noise.

SOURCE: Thermador Oven won't heat after running self-cleaning cycle

SOunds like you need to reset the oven high limit switch. It should be located behind the grille obave the oven opening and below the control panel. There should be about 4-6 screws you need to take out to remove the grille to gain access. Turn the power of to the oven at the circuit breaker, then rech in with a screwdriver and push down on the little red button in the center of the hig limit until it clicks. the high limit should be about as big around as a quarter and have a wire going into one side and out the other. If this keeps tripping, you may have a bad cooling fan. When you run a self clean it should also run a fan to cool the components. You should be able to feel a breeze coming out of the bottom of the oven when the cooling fan (not the convection fan ) is running. If this fan doesnt run, it will trip that switch. Hope this helps!

I also had this problem about 11 years ago. A repair person came, pulled the oven out about 6 inches and inserted a pointed tool (an awl or skewer works great) and reset the oven. He then tried to charge me for this!! On my oven it just looks like a tiny hole. It works every time! And yes, my oven never works again after I clean it without doing this. Good luck.

hey man don;t worry i have too much solution if i explain u every thing then you confused so i explain one and if u want another then e-mail me on so listen carefully

Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.

Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.

Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious blockage.

Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.

An oven that won't heat can occur for a variety of reasons.

SOURCE: Gas stove top works, but oven does not.

The Kenmore 24-Inch Self-Cleaning Gas Oven 30472 features a low-maintenance self-cleaning feature and is offered at a fair price.
Many retailers offer only a limited selection of gas ovens for 24-inch cutouts, but Sears has a fairly good number of models to choose from. And the 30472 stands out because of the its price and the self-cleaning feature. Since most 24-inch models are so similar, you'll want to make finding the best price your priority.
The 30472 (Sears item 02230472000) built-in gas oven offers a feature set that is typical of ovens in this category. You'll find a modern frameless door design and a digital display. Most all products offered today have a built-in clock and digital timer, like this one. The interior light goes on automatically when the door is opened. As an alternative, you can switch on the light manually without opening the door. This allows you to take a peak at a cake or other food without any heat escaping.
As is typical, this model also offers a pre-heat signal. Unlike the ovens of yesteryear, when the selected temperature is reached, this model will alert you.
Offered here in white, this model also comes in black (30479), bisque (30474), or stainless steel with black (30473).
At an attractive price, the 30472 warrants some serious consideration because of the self-cleaning feature.

Everytime i turn on my stove it makes a big bang noise, i cant figure out what else it could be.

Sounds like your cord or wireing may be arching. Your elements may also be making that noise. Carefully try to see if you can see what is arching.

If you need further assistance please comment me back.

My ignitor made a loud popping noise and then stopped working. U can ligt the stove manualy but the ignitor does not work.

The venturi tube is probably blocked. Take an old toothbrush and gently swab the site where the spark usually appears. This should dislodge any debris that might have gotten stuck there. Wipe with a paper towel and try the electric ignition again. I hope this helps.

DCS 5 burner 30" oven makes loud noises as if starved for fuel

Hi; Is the oven run with LP or NAT gas. Sounds like a regulator problem not letting enough gas through. Also is this a comercial unit. If so when was the last time all burners and pilot orafices were cleaned out. The burner tubes have a air vent cut into the burner at the orafice. Make sure no debris have covered these airways.And lastly how old are the thermocouples and are they secure to the gas valves and have a good pilot flame on them...
