Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a Blaze King Wood Stove (approx. 20-25 yr old) that will not stay lit. Problem started yesterday - have been burning it without problem for last 2 months. Damper control was open as much or more than in the past. Any ideas what the problem might be?

SOURCE: burned on stain on burner will not come clean using cleaner and the blade

There are some very effective commercial products available. One of the most highly rated is Cerama-Bryte, but BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY....as once it dries it is impossible to remove!!!!! Work in small areas, rub consistently.

As well, mr. clean magic eraser also has worked magic on my mothers stove over the past few years also.

If you wish to stay away from the store-bought chemical....soaking the spots with water and ammonia OR vinegar..(not both) and elbow grease. As well....the razor blade in combo with the liquid.

Be sure to rank me.....please....especially if this Fix-ya`s....

ok i would check to make sure all your connections are tight to the new control board.
then check where the chord connects to the range
make sure all your connections there are tight and secure
then check to ensure you have the proper voiltage at the outlet
120v on bothe sides to ground
220v between l1 and l2

Hi

The issue can either be a bad electronic control/clock assembly or the oven temperature sensor (probe) has gone bad. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then 1120 ohms then it should be replaced however, if it reads between 1080-1120 ohm then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. You can also check the wire harness from the control to the electronic board. Hope this helps...

The oven pilot to our gas stove was out, while the stove top pilots were still burning. When trying to light the oven pilot, it would light but not stay lit. Model #CG31200BDW

I have an old one. how does it work?


You have a old range ... how does it work? Ok, you turn the gas on and the fire lights. You put a pan on the stove with something in it ... it cooks. Not gas? Ok, you turn it on, the element heats up ... see previous pan instruction. What? not electric? Get some wood, put it into the firebox and light it. See the pan instruction.

Ok, I'm toying with you ... please ask a question and include important particulars like approx age and at least the kind of stove (gas or electric) A make and model would be nice. What is your particular trouble? State your problem in a few words so someone can try to give you a good answer.

Thank you and thanks for your visit today.

I am trying to shut down my stove at night to keep it going. (not burning out) How do I do this?


air is still getting in from somewhere when you shut all the dampers and doors. door seals if fitted may not be sealing. if you have only tryed wood as a fuel try coal to see if it stays in. but air feeding the fire is the problem

Pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range


Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

Water and debris in flue liner of Jotul Stove


Hi,
You should have a swept T connector at the base, with the sweep going from the stove upwards, but the other end of the T going into a removable cap - or very short length of pipe. If you only have a standard bend - replace it with the T.

This is actually normal for wood burners. In an unlined chimney, the lighter "tar" fractions from the wood would soak into the brickwork, and show through the wall in a few years. In a lined system - they have to go somewhere, and usually condense inside the flue - running back down to the base.
The "chinese hat" style cap is actually very good for everything except sideways hail.

Sorry - but it's the nature of the fuel. It is possible to use a clay based absorbent at the base - Cat litter is actually fine.

Stove top burners


It is not the cartridge. It is the ignition switch (sometimes called a cooktop switch) I found mine on ebay. In particular it is a faulty rear switch. Save your money on the cartridge.
