Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My oven - St George UGM-4 model - won't light. I don't know how old the oven is. There have been problems for a while, with the flame going out after about 5 minutes when it's first lit (it makes a clicking sound, like it's trying to reignite itself) and needing to be re-lit several times. This goes on every five minutes or so for about half an hour, and then it kicks in and stays lit. Often times too the 'flame out' and 'grill' light indicators on the front of the oven will be lit up, even though the flame isn't out, and the grill isn't on. Have found the oven works best if the door is left wide open for about 15 minutes when it's first lit. Seems like it needs the oxygen? I close the door slowly and wait a while, and if the clicking sound starts I quickly open the door again and the sounds stops and the flame stays. I'll wait another 5-10 minutes before closing the door, and usually by this stage it works. Now, however, it won't light at all, and I really need it fixed. Just hope it's not too serious.

This one is hands on fix,many times the spark ignition the one that makes the clicking noise is clicking on a different position,so you most look inside the oven to see the spark, you can see it better at night or when is dark to see the spark, that spark is right at the tip of the oven pilot, make sure you see the spark lighting the pilot.as long as the pilot does not ignite.the clicking sounds continues making the noise. if the pilot lights the noise will stop, if the oven burner does not light after pilot is being for about 1 minute and a half the safety valve needs replacing

It is less expensive than replacing the whole stove if you do your self. Should be able to find parts a repairclinic.com. Hope this helps.

Turn off the timer on an old imperial st george


I have this exact same oven and this "feature" annoys me no end. To turn it off ... turn the clock dial to PAST the time that the timer dial shows. EG: If your timer dial is showing 6, turn the clock dial so that it rolls past 6 o'clock. This will pop out the timer dial and thus turn off the timer, allowing you to use the oven normally.

To stop accidentally pushing/turning that timer dial, I removed the knobs. Good luck.
