Westinghouse oven LPG 527 wont stay alight and grill wont start

The oven wont stay alight after holding down the temperature knob. I understand I have to replace the thermocouple but the grill wont ignite at all. Are they both linked or do they have a separate thermocouple

Normally the grill is completely separate to the oven. Press the ignitor before you turn on the grill, as, to ignite, oxygen needs to be present (ie: not flooded with gas) . and you should be able to see the spark from the ignitor in the grill. if you can't, then you may have problems with your ignition pack or ignition leads.

SOURCE: The oven of my westinghouse

This oven is provided with a gas safety- the oven knob has a thermoswitch system: inside the knob valve there's a switch that is controlled by a thermostat , it allows the passing of the gas only after it has been heated. For that to work you must keep the knob pressed for at least 10 seconds after the burner has been lit - the time needed for the thermostat to heat up and allow the gas flow.
Your problem is caused by a faulty knob valve: the safety system of the knob is not disengaged after the thermostat gets hot. You will have to replace it: beware, the tube of the thermostat goes all the way to the burner of the oven and it's hard to replace, it will be a long and fiddly job

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

Ignition Switch ?


There is a safety device built into gas outlets to prevent the gas from running if it fails to ignite. It works by heat. If a valve is not heated enough then the main valve will not remain open. That's why many gas appliances ask you to leave a second valve open for as much as 30 seconds after igniting. These valves are highly reliable. It sounds like your appliance may not be warm enough. Try to run it on high for 5-10 seconds before you turn it down. To access the valves; pull all the knobs straight off first then try to remove the facing by the screws. A make & model would be helpful since there are many different configurations.

Looking for a manual for Whirlpool BS0801/WH oven


I have a paper copy of the manual - if you need to know anything more than the information below post a more specific question.

The function symbols on Knob F, clockwise from the top, are as follows:
  • 0 = Off
  • Lamp symbol = Lamp Only, no fan, no heating.
  • Fan + Drip Symbol = Lamp + Fan, but no Heating - this is for defrosting.
  • Fan inside a Circle symbol = Lamp + Fan + Oven Heating - this is the normal cooking position. The temperature of the oven is set on the Temperature Knob.
  • Final position = Grill. The temperature of the Grill is set on the Grill knob.
The red indicator light only comes on when the Oven is heating (not the Grill), and goes off when the oven has reached it's set temperature.

The bulb is 25W 230V Type E-14 300 Degree C.

The oven draws a maximum of 2300W so requires a 10A supply.
