Oven thermostat - schoenberger gas system 1975

Everything on our gas stove is working, including the pilot lights. All the knobs are working on stove burners. The oven knob won't stop at the "catch" point. I was told that Tappan was bought out by Frigidaire. I believe our issue is that we need a new oven thermostat. Since this appliance is over 30 years old, is there any where on the internet to find this part or is there an equivalent part? If not, can we repair the oven thermostat and if so, how? Can you help? Thank you for your time. Sincerely, RM Kisting

Re: oven thermostat - schoenberger gas system 1975

Will need to find the correct model # somewhere on the range then go to or and you will find it there. I found thermostats on those sites for a model # close to yours and most likely the same one. Sears was about $72 and appliancepartspros was about $78. Hopes this helps.

I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top

most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

How do you light the pilot light on the stove? Model 3627391592


A pilot light will be found on natural gas stoves, fireplaces, clothes dryers, water heaters and furnaces. When the gas is turned off, the pilot light will go out on all of these appliances. After the gas is turned back on, you must relight the pilot light before you can use the appliance. Pilot lights are similar so if you can relight the pilot light for a gas heater you can relight the pilot light for a gas stove or any other gas appliance.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • matches OR flashlight
  1. Locate the gas valve by following the gas line in the appliance. The gas valve will have a large red button or knob and will be easy to see and will be well marked.
  2. Check for a gas leak by smelling the area close to the gas valve. Listen carefully for escaping gas and do not attempt to light a pilot light if there is a gas leak.
  3. Hold down or press the red button or knob on the gas valve while holding a lit match in front of the opening in the gas pilot line. Continue to hold down or press the red button or knob for several seconds after the gas ignites to allow the thermocouple (the sensor for the appliance's thermostat) to heat up.
  4. Repeat step 3 if the pilot light goes out after you release the button or knob. In most cases, the pilot light goes out because the thermocouple did not have enough time to heat up, so give it a few more seconds.
  5. Make final adjustment of the gas flow to the pilot light by turning the red knob. In some cases, no adjustment other than "on" or "off" will be needed.
  6. Turn on our appliance to make sure the pilot light ignites the main gas flow. Replace any covers or close any access doors to the gas valve.
Hope this help?

I have an early 70's Magic Chef series VI oven/stove. The stove works fine. The oven takes about 30 minutes to light. When oven knob is turned pilot works fine. There is no gas odor before the oven lights.

My model is a UA119A-2W and I cannot find a place to light the oven pilot. Nor can I find a copy of the owner's manual anywhere online. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I cant find the stove top pilot

Electric Ignition (sparking clicking noise when control knob is turned to "light" setting) do not have pilots. The spark ignites the gas.

Garland H283 gas range. Right oven wont come on.

I just read this here:
that explained how to test if the problem is the thermostat. It said to watch the pilot as you open the thermostat to turn on the oven. If the thermostat is ok the pilot should get bigger, if the pilot does not change when turning on the thermostat, then the thermostat is bad.

Stove top pilot light

I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.

Tappan Gas stove

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.
