Re: lang gas oven

The thermostat may be faulty for that section of the oven, it checks to make sure there is a pilot flame via a thermostat that turns the gas on. The thermostat that turns the gas on is usually located next to the pilot light.

Hi The pilot light when out and the oven has stop working does the pilot light double as a fuse ?? BSO 6000

No. The pilot light uses a thermocouple(safety device) to let the main gas valve know that the pilot is lit so that the main gas valve can operate safely by not letting the main gas valve turn on without a lit pilot light. This way, in no way can the main gas valve turn on until the heat from the pilot light causes the thermocouple to produce an electrical current which allows the main gas valve to operate when the thermostat switch closes.

Neff double oven u1442, main oven thermostat light does not work even though oven heats up. Is there a fix?

If the oven is heating up o/k, then I would suggest that the oven pilot bulb has failed, I have come across this on several occasions, it usually just means replacing the oven pilot light.

It won't heat up... even though there is a flame

Check The Power Source

If the gas oven won't turn on, the first thing to do is check the power source. Most modern gas ovens are electrically powered. Check to make sure the oven is plugged in and the breaker isn't tripped.

Check the Heat Source

When a gas oven won't heat, the pilot light can also be set too low; if the pilot is lit but the oven isn't catching, adjust the flame.

Newer gas ovens use electric ignitors that produce sparks. If the oven doesn't heat, the ignitor could be broken.

Lang gas pizza oven.. Main burners won't lite!

Hello. It sounds like, from what you said, you have a new thermocouple. The device it is attached to, the pilot safety, could have a problem internally that allows gas to the pilot, but does not open the main part of the valve, or electrically has failed on the main coil. If you have a thermostat with wires on it, you can jumper the wires, to bypass it, temporarily please, if it comes on, you need a thermostat, if not, it is the valve most likely.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Confused about pilot lights?

electric ovens do not have a pilot light.
there should be a thermostat for the water heater somewhere - turn it to the coldest position
