Baumatic B609SS Gas shuts off when opening the door
Our oven gas shuts off when opening the door. Lighting a hob burner first, then opening the door slowly sometimes helps prevent this ... but not always. Gas supply (propane) has been pressure checked and given the all clear. Oven 3 years old and has been giving a problem for the past 6 months.

Re: Baumatic B609SS Gas shuts off when opening the door
Hi it could be a regulator problem on the oven gas & air mix not correctly set so when you open the oven door it causes a vaccuum & pulls the gas away from the burner & the oven goes out.
Possibly there could be not enough gas getting through to hold open the solenoid on the oven?
Or the other possible problem could be grease etc blocking the burner check that 1st, so the burner may not be getting enough gas through.
Check those out & tell me what you think if it helps at all

The quality of new stuff is not as good at the old, but they are shiny and clean to start with.
With the upper burners, they have just a standard gas igniter, but you say there is no gas. This can only be cause by two things, but most likely a blocked jet for some reason. The only other reason is a faulty control.
The grill is the same, some share igniters, some have one for each of the three department, hobs, grill, ovens.
So your choice is buy a new one or get a service engineer in. It is gas, so you shouldn't really work on this on your own for safety reasons.
Although elements look in one piece they can go 2 ways, short circuit (visible normally by a bulge or tear) or the resistance gets way too high, They should normally be around 30 ohms resistance reading. Use a multimeter and check the ohm's reading of the element
Same problem with my hob. I adjusted the small jets to their lowest setting in order to be able to simmer -impossible on the bigger jets. The problem is the vents underneath the hob. These can't be closed off so the problem appears to be in the design. The solution I have to use while I save up to by a decent German model is to open and close the cupboard doors underneath the hob very, very slowly.
oven lighting mechanism lights the gas the flames heat a temperature sensor
that, once hot, increases the pressure in the sensor's copper pipe and opens a
safety valve to allow gas to continue to flow (It's made like this so, if your
flame gets blown out, the sensor cools and cuts off the gas supply, making it
safe from gas leaks). These sensors occasionally fail, and very sensibly
"Fail safe" - No pressure in the sensor pipe, the valve won't open
and there is no gas to the burner.
If you take
a look inside the oven at the back where the burner is, you will see the
sensor, usually the bit that is in the flame is cylindrical, about an inch long
made of metal about 3 or 4 mm thick, tapering at the end. It will be held in
place by a nut that fits on a thread at the base of the sensor. Running from
the sensor is a copper pipe that runs to the cutoff valve. Unbolt the sensor
and withdraw it from the hole it is mounted in, trace the copper pipe back to
the valve (where it is usually screwed into the valve with a 10mm connector
that looks like a car brake pipe connector. Unbolt from the valve. These
sensors are widely used on most gas appliances (Boilers, gas fires, cooker hob
burners and patio heaters all use the same kind of sensor). You should be able to
get a replacement from any gas appliance service agent. If you go into a shop,
take it with you. The only thing you need to do is make sure the replacement
you get is long enough. If you are offered one that is slightly longer, that

Hi there you need to change the ffd on your oven
FFd stands for flame faliure device. its like an temperature controlled switch. it is located in the oven and this device is what lets the gas go through once it has reached a certain temp.
It must only be done by a corgi qualified engineer and to be honest your loooking at about 100 pounds.
