Question about Ovens

6 Answers

Bakers pride y600 top oven lights only when bottom oven is hot.

The pilot light is lit and burns fine,however i cannot get the burner tubes to stay lit. Upon turning on the gas valve the tubes light initially for about 15 seconds and go out(it is a weak flame at best). However after the bottom oven has reached operating temp. i am able to turn the top oven on usually with no problem. I recently replaced the gas valve about 5 months ago and had no problems until about a month ago. Any insight would be helpful.

You need to test and eventually replace either the valve or the thermocouple that controls the valve.

    Your oven model is using spark ignition system which uses a pilot to light but it is not lit all the time. When your oven thermostat is turned on, gas flows to the oven burner safety valve and also the oven's pilot which gets lit via a spark. Once the pilot is lit and the oven safety valve's sensor bulb senses it, that valve will then open to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the pilot flame ignites the burner.

    But, here your sensor (in top deck) is sensing it only after 30 sec.s or when bottom one gets heated up. So, you need to replace your sensor or check for any unusual stuff around the sensor.

Hi there
It sounds like the burners themselves are in need of a damn good clean as soot and other debris could be blocking the jets causing the malfunction. What you need to do is remove them and clean all the inlet/outlet pipes and the burners themselves either by yourself or a professional ( professional is recommended as messing with gas appliances could prove dangerous )

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya

It might be that burner is cloggged with grease. When it warms up grease will evaporate or melt and gas flow increases. Try to use grease cleaner for ovens. Or replace the burner
Good Luck

I would replace the oven temp probe, this sends the signal to the gas valve to open and close, i am sure that is the problem.

Oven wont light, pilot is lite but the burners wont ignight


Bakers Pride used several different safety valves over the years. If your oven has a pilot valve that has a beige know that you hold in and turn to light the pilot, then after it lights you need to turn the beige know another half round to the "on" setting. If you push in a red button to light the pilot, it may not be getting enough heat on the thermocouple where the pilot flame should be heating it up. Be sure the main gas valve on the front of the oven is turned to the on position also. On some models the pilot will light with the main gas valve in the off position. If you look at the pilot flame while it is burning, make sure that it is hitting the pencil sized thermopile enough to make it glow red. If not bend it slightly to improve the heating.

Pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top... previous user says to turn on gas and lite "sensor" or "2nd pilot" it stays lit as long as oven knob is on but oven burner does not light. "sensor" goes out...


On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.

Pilot light still going out


If this oven has a "stack" (where the hot gases & heat vent to your hood) air could be blowing down the stack affecting the pilot. Simple test, Bic lighter lit at the top of the stack in the middle of the opening. If the flame is being sucked down the stack, then you have air blowing the pilot out. How old is the thermocouple on this unit ? Pilot flame heats this up to send a signal to your main gas valve to open up so the burners light. A weak t-couple could be your problem. Hope this helps

I ran out of propane...so now truck is filling us up..how do I get the oven working again..how to light the pilot light?


Hi there, hope this helps. On the front of the oven, usually on the left side, where your thermostat is, has a red button sticking out, that is your pilot safety. To light it, you need to open the lower door, and aprox. in the center of the area, is your pilot, has a small pipe going to it, you have to hold the red button in, and light the pilot in that lower chamber, and most of the time, once the pilot is lit, you must hold the button for 60 to 90 seconds. If it does not stay lit when you let go of tthe button, you may have additional problems, let us know. And thank you.

Bakers pride pizza oven not lighting


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.

Thermo coupler on all the time, push in button, shuts off gas


Bad Safety valve. (valve w/red button). Thermocouple keeps the magnet open to keep pilot and so gas can flow to burner. Make sure pilot is clean and strong and hitting thermocouple. If it doesnt stay lit replace Safety Valve.

WAISTING GAS BAKERS PRIDE GAS OVEN DOESNT SHUT OFF


Hi, don't know if you received an answer, however your gas valve sounds to be bad, when turned to pilot, it should only allow gas to the pilot assy. The problem is, it has already failed to shut fully, if it still does that with it in the off position, it would still be allowing gas through it, if the pilot goes out, there is now no protection to shut itself off, get it replaced ASAP. Hope that helps, and thank you.
