Question about La Cornue Chateau 120 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
I ordered in 1995 a La Cornue Chateau 120 from France. I live in the British virgin Islands and they built it for propane. For several years I have had a continual problem with the pilot light going out after the oven has been on. I have a large oven, not the small vaulted type and the right side has an electric warming oven. I can turn the oven on and it will stay on for several hours sometimes, but then it shuts down and I when I try to relight it, the pilot is reluctant to light and if it does the oven won't stay lit for very long and I actually can hear it click off/ Several years ago, I replaced the thermocoupler and the thermostat, but the problem continues. La Cornue is the worst company for service and repair, and I have been waiting on the phone for someone to actually answer when you call them, but I get fed up and hang up. The repairment that come and look at it have no idea what is causing the problem. Now they suggest that I replace the pilot light, because they seem to think that it is not a thermostat problem or a thermocoupler problem. Sometimes, when I open the oven door it blows out too. I thought about just replacing the whole of the inside of the oven with another brand ie US, just because I am so fed up with this. HELP
It could be your air to gas mixture is too lean, and the flame is blowing out. the oven will then turn off, but it is producing a lot of carbon monoxide have to see flame to really tell.

First thing should be to make sure the top selector switch is not set to the optional Pizza element.
Make sure the power to the unit is OFF. Also keep in mind that the following tests should be done by a qualified appliance specialist. To find one near you, contact the La Cornue Service Center @ 877-522-6768
Is this the first time using the oven? If so, make sure the overall power to the range is 240 volts. This can be checked at the main terminal block.
If your model has three indicator lights and the red light is illuminated, then it is likely the hi-limit thermostat has tripped and you will need to reset it. The reset switch is located underneath the cycling thermostat. To access this, you will need to remove the front fascia. Please note: The original safety thermostat is no longer available. Use current safety thermostat (reference: 06ELTS01). If your model has only two indicator lights and the red light is illuminated, that means the oven is heating up. If the red light is not illuminated when the thermostat is set at the desired temperature, then check the hi-limit thermostat.
Power relay/contactor on the back of the unit should be checked. It
