Question about Ovens

Gas oven will not ignite

We recently installed a used commercial gas oven for baking donuts. We were told it was working when we bought it. It runs on regular 110 - 115 V and natural gas.

When we turn it on the fan runs and the oven lights work but the burners will not ignite. There is no click to signify that the igniters are working. And no lights on the panel either. There is only .4v on both sides of the thermostat.

I'm not sure if this unit has a pilot light or not.

When I turn the gas on and turn the power switch on, I can smell gas and the fan runs but nothing clicks or fires up.

Do I have to light this up manually the first time?
Why do I smell gas if the igniters are not working?
What if I did get this going and the pilot light ever went out, would the room fill up with gas? Should it not have some kind of safety device to prevent gas from flowing when there is no flame?

It sounds like somebody bypassed the flame sensor on the oven, no oven should ever release gas for more than a couple seconds if there is no ignition. This oven is very dangerous and should not be used until it is looked at by a professional.

Blodgett conv oven heating


a couple of things to check--are you baking more product than usual at one time?does your oven have a load control dial?if so the dial could be set wrong or inoperative.if your baking to much product than normally the excess moisture could cause this.has any electrical work been done to the oven or its power line.is the fan running clockwise?when you look at the fan do you see a tube in front of it?if so check for a blockage (tinfoil).lastly you could have a bad heating element.

Convert dfg200 from gas to lp


being this is a commercial oven you will nee3d to go to a commercial parts purveyor to get the conversion parts,on residential units the orfices are included with the range when new for conversion at any time,the gas orfices need to be changed on the top burners,then the orfice spuds in the oven bake and broil units need to be turned down onto the orfice for conversion,your commercial parts person will have the steps with the conversion kit to do the change-over

you have 2 posibilities the first one is very unprobable and the second will fix the oven

1) the new gas valve is defective and while the proper amprage is being supplied to it,it simply wont open

2) even though the bake ignitor is indeed coming on it isn't drawing the proper amp draw (3.2-3.6 amps) to open the gas valve ,the very fact the ignitor comes on totally eminates that the control isn't providing power to it for the bake ignitor to heat

i have been a appliance repair technician for over 30 years and am 100% confident that by replacing the bake ignitor the oven will work fine

How do i vent my gas oven for my deli. i bought it used and do not have proper venting instructions?


Contact your local municipality's Building Inspector for code and fire department requirements for commercial installations. There will be a permitting process and fee involved but at least the installation will be done properly and not void your insurance.

Uneven rising & baking in convection oven


I repair commercial cooking equipment for a living. When a customer complains about uneven cooking the #1 thing that these manufacturers ask is..... are they turning (180*) the baking sheets half way thru the cook cycle. #2 are they staggering the pans front to back & side to side. It's kind of a pain but, works for the commercial ones.

Replace recepticles for large elements. It is the part that the heating elements go into. And while you are at the appliance store, pickup a new bake element for your oven. Just unscrew element from oven wall and install new one.
