I have a Hollywood Gaffers & Sattler Gas stove in my apt. and the stove top pilot light is on and works fine, but my oven won't heat up. Is there a separate pilot light for the oven part, and if so, where is it?

Some of the later models (like the Series 24) had a clicker electric light for the burners on to and a Glo Plug that you can see come on before the gas lights.
Ig the Glo Plug does not reach a certain temperature then the Gas is not tunrd on to the Oven Burner as a Safety feature.

If you open the bottom door (Broiler) and look up:
1. Turn the oven on to 200 or 300 degrees. The oven should light
when the Glo Plug reaches a temperature hot enough to light the gas.

If you do not see the Glo Plug come on, or hear clicking when trying to light the top burners you should have a professional look at it if you are not experianced with working on gas applicaences. Never circumvent a safety device to try and make something work, they are there for a real good reason.

The pilot light for the oven is under the bottom oven shelf that we had to pull out.

Gas stove works, but oven does not


A gas oven will have some built in safety devices. Assuming that you have an electric pilot light sparking device, anything in the pilot light circuit could cause your problem

The oven does not "want" to turn the gas on unless there is an operating pilot system.

Since you never smell gas, but gas is available, then something in the pilot light circuit sounds like the culprit.

It could be as simple as carbon build up on the igniter or an internal fusing mechanism.

If you can get into the oven to the igniter, you could try cleaning the unit with a plastic scrunge.

I'm going to guess that this is not going to respond well to 'home grown' measures and that it will require replacement of parts.

Perhaps it is time to bite the bullet and call in repair......

good luck

Can't find the oven pilot on an old Gaffers and Sattler "Energy Saver Range with Uni Burners"


With the help from your site I was able to hold a match under the bar under the oven shelf toward the back and light the pilot. I am SO grateful. I hadn't been able to see it but just held a match toward the back, and it lit.

Gas oven dosnt work


the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

Gaffers & Sattler stove


The pilot is under the bottom oven deck, usually you can lift the front edge, and slide it out, smelling gas without a pilot would be bad, that means either A : your safety is bad, and allowing gas to flow anyway, which requires replacement, and you may as well replace the thermocouple, and clean the pilot. or B : it is old enough it does not have a protected pilot, and you have to manually light it, usually indicated by an open hole in the front middle of the oven deck plate when you open the door, with a tube going to the burner. or C : your oven burner is bad or misaligned with the burner, and is shooting gas away from the pilot area, it would light via an open pilot eventually, but you don't want that. Please let us know, or have a qualified servicer look at it. Happy New Year, and thank you.

Gaffers and Sattler vintage stove oven pilot 1956 W54 series similar problem


My mother had the same problem with her Gaffers-Sattler range. No one could figure out what was wrong with it. Her local new appliance repair people said to contact J.E.S. Enterprises, Inc at www.theoldapplianceclub.net. Whew; thank God for that tip. They knew exactly what the problem was and repaired the unit for her. The stove is running again like a workhorse! Here is their number - 805-643-3532.

Oven pilot light won't light


Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.

you must push and hold the button on the bottom fo the safety valve until the thermocouple is warm enough to keep the safety valve open. @ 25 - 30 seconds
