1950 Wedgewood stove safety valve instruction

Hello,
I have a 1950 Wedgewood stove that I just fixed the oven on. Problem is that I can't figure out how to get the safety valve to allow me to use it! I push it in, the gas goes on and she lights beautifully, but as soon as I release the button, the gas shuts off. Help! I have the original manual and it doesn't tell me what to do in this case.
Any hints? I just spent $300 getting a new thermocoupler put in (I think that's what it is called) and I want to do some baking!
Thanks,
Cecilia

    Greetings from Phialdelphia. . . I am restoring the same vintage Wedgewood but sadly the owners manual was lost. . . could I get a copy of yours? I would be happy to pay costs or if it is easier you could scan and send.

    Thanks,
    Gregory

Hold the red button down for a minute - pilot - under the burner cover at the rear of the stove. One pilot is for the ovens and other is for the stove top.

What are BTUs for vintage propane oven/cooktop?


This is the only thing I can find on that brand. I would have thought your propane supplier could have given you the information?

Or you could Google propane stoves and pick one that is similar. I won't make that much difference. Like this site

Our Wedgewood stove suddenly started acting up. We have to use the Reset button often to get any oven lighting at all. The pilots are fine. The broiler (separate compartment) is fine. But the oven lights...


It sounds like the problem is either the safety valve (the reset button) or the oven thermostat (the assembly behind the oven temperature knob). Both parts can be rebuilt (if they are original parts) and replacement parts are still made for 1940's and 50's Wedgewoods.

I have a Tappan gas stove that takes forever to heat up (oven) and I smell gas before it starts to heat. Help?


Hello,
Thanks for answering my questions. It sounds to me like your oven's safety valve is going bad. There have been many times when I am at a customer's house and it has been a while since they used the oven, and it seems to take forever to light the oven. Just tapping the oven safety valve with a wrench or handle of a screw driver is all that's needed to open the valve and light the burner. As long as your oven's igniter glow bar is lighting, (glowing orange or sparking), then the oven safety valve is your problem. It is a silver rectangular valve in the far back bottom of the oven with the orifice on top of it and the burner tube coming down over the orifice. Try tapping it and see if that works. Otherwise, just have it replaced. Douglas

Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.
