Question about Ovens
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?

I belive that the thermostat to the oven isnt working properly.The t-stat bulb sits inside the oven on the wall and this is what senses the temp in the oven.If its out of place or the t-stat is bad the oven will just keep heating.hope this helps let me know.HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

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!

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.

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.
