Question about Cooktops

Gas oven knobs seizing when oven hot

The knobs that control the hotplate on a freestanding gas oven and cooktop stick and can not be turned when the oven below is in use. Obviously the extra heat from the oven is enough to cause them to seize, difficult when the hotplate is in use and the oven, have to wait for the oven to cool off before I can turn off the hotplate control knobs. The oven door seal is fine. It is not excessive heat that is hitting the control knobs they are not hot at all. Is it possible to disassemble the control valves and lubricate them??

Hi my name is mark, yes most manual gas valves can be disassembled and lubed. you will need gas valve grease. remember a little goes a long way and shut off the gas to the unit before disassembly.

I Have A Jenn-Aie Model 720-0164 Natural Gas Grill. When I Grill, The Control Knobs Get So Hot Theyh Will Burn You. What Could Csuse This?


Can this grill be also used on propane? If so you might be running it too hot on natural gas, check to see if the control knobs have two different set of markings.

Propane oven won't light


Can you post more details like: Does the oven ignitor come on (glow orange)? Can you hear the oven gas valve click open and/or smell gas? Do all the stovetop burners work fine? Have you checked your propane tank to be sure you are not out of gas?

LP gas stove top . burners want turn down to low. Only medium and high flame work on burners.


Has this just recently happened? Check the knobs aren't cracked sometimes the brass spindle inside the knob is not gripping to turn it right down, also check your l p gas pressure it should be 2.75 kpa.
if the flames are big and yellow it's getting too much gas, not enough air.

If you have a standing pilot (always lit), the adjustment screw is normally located behind the burner control knobs.

I haven't heard of this problem before. If you do press down and the hotplate starts to work we know that the hotplates are okay. The only thing this could be is an internal problem inside the hotplate controller, possibly with the contacts. The controllers will need replacing.

Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.


mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.
