Question about Summit Appliances Division WTM610 / STM610 Gas Range

Open Question

I have a very old Brown Gas Stove model WTM610- type 21. My oven gets way too hot & burns food! I set the temperature at 300 & 400. Both times it was well over 600 when I have a oven thermometerinside within 6 minutes. I can't find any parts list nor any schematics which leads me to believe it is extremely old! Does anyone have any repair manuals or possibly software that they could send me any & all repair info on this stove? I am thinking it needs a new thermostat but can't find any part numbers. I was able to take a few pics of it with my cell phone. I see something that says MODEL ELO 8916F. I don't know if thats it or not, can I get any help please?

My old garland gas range, model J38H0, has 3 problems. one of the large burners only burns low, even when fully turned up, the oven won't light at all, and the other large burner ignites at the air intake...


Most likely the igniter is no good and does'nt get hot enough 2 start the oven. Check and make sure their is no blockage to the burners sometimes they get loaded with food and or dust

How to change the lower element on a delonghi AD 699 toaster oven?


Hello,

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

  • Hope this work ..........

    Gets hot too quickly food cooks too quickly


    no oven heats to what the dial says, all are to hot or to cold. try reducing the cooking temperature by 50 *, so instead of cooking a roast at 350, set at 300. i have never seen a stove that is heating to the temperature of the setting.

    There is no gas going to my oven. Only the


    hello, i can help you. first of all, if the broiler works then you must have gas coming into the stove. as far as getting to the gas line, it is in the rear of the stove. typically you have to pull out the stove to get to it. that said, here are some things to consider.

    Not all gas ranges/ovens require electricity. If yours has a clock, electronic igniters, self-cleaning, or any other electrical features, the unit needs electricity to work properly. Check to see whether there's power getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

    It won't bake If your oven won't bake, check these:

    Bake igniter
    Other causes
    Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

    The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

    Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

    • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

    • The thermostat is defective.

    • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

    • The selector switch is defective.

    It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

    • When the item takes far too long to finish, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect.

    • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor.

      On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    Gas oven smell


    Have you checked the temperature with a hand held or stand alone thermometer? First thing I would do is get a cheap oven thermostat, set the oven to 200 and make sure the oven is not being controlled.

    This smell, does it sour the flavor of whatever you are baking, broiling whatever?

    Sounds to me the oven might be over temperature, if it checks out against another thermostat is there any breakin procedures in your manual or cd?

    Check that out, next have you called the oem?

    cALL EM AND TELL THEM WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING, MAYBE THEY HAVE A BAD COATING,

    If that goes no where, get a mailing address, ,get a frozen pancake or waffle if it is sticking to the food, cook it, wrap it hot in plastic rap then aluminum foil and mail it to them.

    Once they take a wiff of it you will get some relief,

    I am concerned you might have some kind gas that could prove to be unhealthy, so get this dealt with, the three suggestions above should get you an answer.

    Oven gets too hot

    Oven not cooking evenly, outside is getting brown but inside is undercooked


    Sounds like the igniter is not operating at full capacity. What happens is that the oven does not light when it should. Instead, the oven is cooling down much too far so when the oven does light it has too heat more rapidly. This causes the outside to brown/burn long before it should.

    WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


    Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
