Question about Bakers Pride Y-600 Gas Single Oven
Oven pilot light is lit meaning there is propane feeding to oven.but main valve when turned does not egnite main flame.
Hello. Usually this problem is related to the pilot being dirty, and
not heating the bulb for the safety device properly/hot enough to fully
open the valve. If you have a general purpose mini torch you can heat
the metal bulb near the pilot with it, if this is the problem, the
safety will open, and the main burner will come on. CAREFUL, you are
not on/around the main burner, as it will allow gas to come on to the
main burner, and if your pilot is not working properly, might not light
the gas. Get the pilot cleaned and adjusted.
or... :) I know... your safety has failed, allowing gas to the pilot, but internally is not opening, this requires replacement. Last though, it could be your thermostat, its last in line, and would require replacement. The safety, and the thermostat are mechanical valves, open or closed depending on its function.
If you have a more current type, they will have a combination valve, and thermopile/thermocouple that are electromechanical, your thermostat at this point can be either mechanical, or electromechanical. This system has a few more possible causes for your symptom.
You can tell which you have by how you light the pilot, have a red button on the front of the unit, by the on/off valve? this is the first type.
Have to open a small door to access a knob, turn it to pilot, and hold in? this is the latter type.
ask if you need more help.
Hope that helps, and thank you.
