Question about Avanti DG241BS Stainless Steel Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Lighting the oven

Have had the range for over a year--recently, if the oven is not lit just right, the burner goes out. sometimes it will light on the second try, and sometims it won't light again. also with the oven burner, if you use the oven once during the day or evening, then shut it off, then try to light it again later (even an hour or two later), it won't light again. so is something wrong with our unit? or is there some kind of safety or emergency shut off that happens automatically? this is a big problem if you can't use the oven more than once per day, or if you have to just keep it on if you want to use it more than once in a day (i.e., making dinner and baking cookies in the same evening). please advise!

Re: lighting the oven

I have similar problems with several 20-inch Avanti ranges. Solution(s); Get a new range, different brand. Cool the range between lightings.

Sometimes the pilot light goes out on this type of oven. This could be caused by a draft, or sudden jolt. Even if the top burner is working, the bottom won't go on until the pilot is lit. Check your manufacturers' instructions for locating and re-lighting the pilot.
Best of luck.

the oven pilot has 2 setting first setting is for you to light small flame, should not be all yellow if it is it has a dirty orifice inside the pilot hood, you can remove this by disconnecting the pilot line from the hood and removing orifice for cleaning, just rub it with a cloth.once clean and replaced you light pilot and check it out. if its ok turn on oven and secondary pilot will ignite that why it got bigger!! this heats a flame sensor to allow 100% safty vavle to open to let gas into burner so yuo can cook.

Occasional gas smell

If you have a burner lit and gas build up, strong smell etc., my advice would be to stop using the oven immediately! You no way gas should come out, build up, to the point you smell it, Especially while a burner is lit. Dangerous condition.

Viking range burners won't light

All of these ranges have a spark module at each burner sight and they all click when ever you attempt to light one burner. Therefore, it can not be assummed that the spark module for those nonworking burners are actually clicking. Remove the burner covers and actually look for the sparks. If there is no spark make sure the connections are nice and tight. IF they are, you most likely need to replace the spark module.

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit

Hello and welcome,
If your range has electronic igniters, then you seem to have one or more bad igniters on top of the range if you have a pilot range then you have a gas restriction or clogged orifice tube.
Even if they make the click noise while trying to light they may not get hot enough to draw the gas on a constant speed!

This will need to be diagnosed hands on at your location.
But this is the fault!

Thank you for using fixya.

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit

I have fix that problem before, the oven heat is soficating the top burners, you will have to adjust top burners with the oven on, so that they will light by them selfs.Or put a shield under the cook top section on the back, so that the heat will not come to the burners where they get the oxigen.
