Re: Avanti DG 241 BS gas range oven burner goes out and...
You need to order parts from AVANTI. http://www.avantiproducts.com/ Very disappointing customer service. I have been waiting 6 weeks for a new thermostat. It will not arrive from China until June -- I was originally told it would come in April. All AVANTI parts are from China and AVANTI in Florida is the only dealer. I will never buy AVANTI again.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Repairman (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Ovens generally have a couple of safety devices fitted meaning no gas gets to the oven unless there is sufficient gas pressure. There is also a valve controlled by a thermocouple. The valve prevents gas passing. There is a bypass operated by either a button or pressing in the oven control knob which allows gas to flow to the pilot light (and sometimes the burners). When the pilot light is lighted and has been burning for about half a minute with the flame correctly set to heat the thermocouple bulb the valve will switch on the gas supply and the knob or button can be released. The burners will initially be at maximum until the oven thermostat reduces the flow to maintain the temperature at a preset level.
If gas isn't reaching the oven and the pipework, oven control and thermostat is ok then the safety thermocouple is either defective or wrongly fitted.
It sounds like the flame sensor unit has an issue---also thermostat control may have a problem---I'm not exactly familiar with this unit but some other units one type burner goes off then on to regulate temp--2nd type varies the gas flow low to high flame for temp control----ck operating manual for its procedures. GL
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.
There has to be a protection system in the burner assembly to cut the supply of gas to the burner if it does not light. For the case of an oven the supply must be cut off immediately if the burner and its pilot go out. For that gas control system to work the burner control must "recognize" with a sensor when the burner is lit and when it is not. Pushing the knob "in" momentarily on this model bypasses the protection system momentarily to allow a burner to be ignited in the first place. If releasing the knob extinguishes the flame the control system is not "seeing" the flame. I tried to find some detail info on you particular ignition system but to no avail so all I can offer is a general approach to these kinds of problems . You need to find and clean or replace the sensor used to detect a flame. It could be an optical one (doubt that) or a temperature flame sensor, a thermocouple sensor, or some other kind I haven't thought of. Fixing this problem involves first determining what kind of sensor it uses. A copy of a service manual for this model can help you determine that. Try to clean the flame detector, and if that doesn't work you have to replace it or the gas control assembly it is a part of. If you have a spark ignition and its not sparking when it should first clean it --carefully--. Spilled food can short them out. Unplug the range before doing this. The owners manual shows it to be under the top burners which can be removed for cleaning this.
