Gas oven temperature does not regulate

We have a TEBA gas oven - about 7 years old. The oven turns on by pressing the light button and then setting the gas - as you turn it on, the gas is at its highest, you then turn it down to gas mark 6, 4 or whatever. However, now, whatever I set the knob to, the flame remains at its strongest - gas mark 9 - the knob is working enough to turn the oven on, but not to regulate heat. Is this a problem I can fix?

SOURCE: low flame and not heating oven

we had the same problem on our 10 yr old creda. gas man said new ffd required (flame failure device). he reckoned on around 80 pounds sterling for new part,even if it was still available, plus maybe 2 hours labour. we bought a new cooker!

SOURCE: Gas in main oven

hello, i have looked into the problem and have come up with a fix for mine at least. take out all the trays, and peer into the rear. you will see a silver section which has three srcews. remove the centre one to get access to the burner which has the white igniter on it. this just slips sideways and off. with the aid of a small mirror you should see a small brass nut where the gas comes from. there is a small pinhole in the centre,mine was slightly blocked and this reduced the flow of gas. i cleaned this with a pin and the gas flow improved. i am not an expert and take no responsibilty if it goes wrong. it appears to have worked for me so the choice is yours.
regards. flask

SOURCE: GE Profile gas range - stove works, oven doesn't heat

Set the oven for bake. Wait a couple minutes and look in the oven. If you see a orange glow the ignitor is working, but, may need to be replaced.
If you see no orange glow the ignitor definitely needs to be replaced.

My gas oven won't ignite, takes several tries to ignite it.


All gas appliances have a thermal cut out this will shut the gas off if the flame goes out the down side is when the thermal cut out becomes faulty it can shut the gas of when you are using the cooker the only fix is to replace the thermal cut out

My oven which is only 5 years old won't warm up on bake or broil


This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Got a fan assisted gas oven. Trying to bake a cake


Temperature control with gas ovens is not an exact science. However the control should be better than you say.

Have you tried reducing the set temperature to compensate for the 'overshoot'. It may be worth a try.

How do i turn on a flavel milano 50 oven?. Never worked with gas stoves before and no manual in sight.


Turn on the gas knob for the oven (below the grill)
You will see an ignition button below the one that switches on the oven light,it is clearly marked.
Press in and hold the gas knob and press ignite button,you will see the safety bar flame light,when the safe to operate temperature is reached,the oven will stay lit after you release the gas supply knob.
Set oven temperate guage (gas mark 4 is approx electric 200 degrees,thats all there is too it
Hope that helps

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light


sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.

Gas oven won't maintain temp. It turns off after reaching temperature set.


Hi ya mate sorry to hear your having problems with you oven,

The problem wiht your oven seems to ba a faliure of the fsd/ffd, it seems to me that this device is not completey gone but is faulty.

This device is used as a safety feature on gas ovens and is there to turn the gas off to the oven when the flame has failed.

The way it works is that the intial small flame heats up the the phile at the end of the cappliary tube which is connected to a valave which realses the gas to the oven..


what you need is to have it change


hope this helps

Lighting a pilot light in a 30 year old roper gas range


Lift the top lid and look for a cylinder or something similar with tubing going into it there should be a button of some sort on the side. if you are lucky the button will have a red cap on it. press the button in and light the pilot inside the oven. hold the button for a minute or so until the pilot stays on. kind of like lighting a water heater.

Faulty bake or broil element


The solution to this problem depends on whether the oven is electric or gas. Electric oven. If your electric oven's bake or broil element isn't working properly, either it isn't receiving electric power or the element or the oven control may need to be replaced. In many cases, the wiring to the elements can be burnt or broken. 1) Be sure the controls are set on the proper setting. 2) Be sure the stove is plugged in and/or check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit. 3) Call an appliance repairperson or replace the element yourself as follows. 4) Unplug the oven and let any hot parts cool. 5) Unscrew the mounting screws that secure the element bracket to the oven and pull out the element far enough to access its terminals. Note which wires are attached to each of the terminals, then disconnect the wires (pull off the wire clips or unscrew the wires). 6) Take the element to a parts dealer, along with your oven's model and serial number, and buy a replacement (preferably the manufacturer's suggested replacement part). 7) Reverse the process to reinstall. Gas oven. When a gas oven doesn't get hot, it generally means that it isn't receiving gas, the gas valve isn't distributing gas to the oven burner, or the ignition system -- either an electronic ignition or pilot light -- isn't working properly. A common problem with ovens that have a pilot light is that the pilot light has gone out. NOTE: Gas ranges younger than 10 years old have a sophisticated fault code system that governs their ignition. Always call an approved warranty service provider to handle problems with these ranges. Here's how to troubleshoot your range: 1) Be sure the controls are set on the proper setting. 2) Be sure the stove is plugged in and/or check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit. 3) Check the gas valve to be sure the gas supply is turned on (also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on). 4) On a stove with a pilot light, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, re-light as discussed HERE, or in your owner's manual. 5) Adjust the pilot flame (older stoves only). 6) Turn off the gas and unplug the stove (or turn off its circuit at the electrical panel). 7) Clean out the oven burner ports, using a stiff wire. 8) Plug in the stove (or turn on its circuit) and turn the gas back on. Re-light the pilot (if it has one). 9) If the oven still doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson.
