Question about Stoves Newhome ECH600MXa Electric Kitchen Range
Can anyone help please,when i turn my oven on full or high,the flame is low to start with then it used to go to a full flame in a couple of minutes,now it,s taking longer and longer to reach full flame,sometime 40 minutes,any ideas please
This is a common safety feature, and is based upon the main gas valve inside the appliance. It regulates only a tiny ammount of gas through when closed - enough to light a pilot. This should then heat a component high enough to trigger the main gas valve and light the main burner.
With the door fully open. Turn on the oven and watch the pilot ignite FROM THE OUTSIDE. Look to see that it is heating what looks like a small wire in the flame. If it is not. Turn it off and let it cool.
You need to adjust this into the path of the flame just by bending it a little. Then try again.
If you cannot, or adjustment doesn't work,then you really need a replacement main gas valve - which is a registered appliance specialist job I'm afraid. Don't take chances with gas appliances.
Thank you for using Fixya.
