    Could it have possibly gotten moisture in it and then stored in a cold place? Have you tried pushing in on the knob while you try turning it?

Did you try WD40(in the UK) or Q20(in South Africa)? You can buy it at hardware shops. It is a penatration flued which is a bit oily.

The gas for the oven will not go on when the knob is turned and there is no gas to keep the pilot light for the oven on.


The ADJ 30 doesn't have an oven. There are 5 top burners and an adjustable underbroiler. The underbroiler used the heat from the top burners to heat the underbroiler. Is it possible that the broiler is sitting on top of some kind of oven?

My magic chef kitchen range oven won't turn on, no gas


Some of the models require you to push in the oven thermostat knob to set the pilot if it blows out. So try pushing in the knob and hold it while lighting the pilot. When the pilot lights continue to hold the knob in for about a minute. When you let go of the knob the pilot should stay lit. If it does not stay lit then try it one more time. If it continues to go out the thermocouple or aso might be bad and will need service.

The oven won't light. I've took off the ignitor


Hello, The igniter may look like it is in good shape but it could have a hairline crack or it could just be worn. The igniter should glow a brillient yellow that you would find hard to look at...If it is glowing with a hint of orange it needs to be replaced. Igniters are very fragile parts and could last a couple of years or 15 years. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck!!! Mike

Belling G755 Cooker oven wont stay lit


I'll give this a go! With a cooker like this, you depress and then turn the control knob, press the ignition button and continue to depress the control knob for a few seconds. This is because a device called a thermocouple is heated by the flame and you have to continue to depress the control knob so that sufficient gas flows to heat up the thermocouple. If the thermocouple does not get hot or stay hot then the gas valve is automatically closed - stopping the gas. The thermocouple is a 'flame failure' safety device. If the gas gets cut off then the flame goes out and the thermocouple goes cold switching off the gas valve automatically. However, you are having to try and manually keep the gas going for a good five minutes. I would think that there is either a problem with the thermocouple or the gas control valve!

Rangemaster 110 gas cooker - RH Oven lights but doesn't heat up


Will the flame go out if you turn the control knob to the off position?

Sometimes gas cooking control knobs have two seperate types of control in the one knob. One control turn the gas on or off, one adjusts the variable quantity of gas allowed through a gap to your flame jets. Some control knobs can get gummed up and stick a little. The can be fixed by carefully taking apart the control knob, taking note of EXACTLY how everything goes back together and cleaning any gummed up bits. Then reassemble the knob and drizzle soapy water over the control to test for leaks. A leaky gas join blows bubbles and makes noise. Let me know if this fixes the problem.
