· Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
· Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system.
1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).
2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).
3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.
Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.
If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.
There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.
as in height of flame? if its too large a flame and you have switched from natural gas to propane gas you must turn the orfice spud down onto the orfice face to adjust it,just land it lightly,do not turn it down overly tight
The bimetal probe inside the safety valve is probably worn out. You gonna need to replace the gas valve on a standing pilot style range. The bulb has mercury in it. When heated by the pilot it opens the valve below and holds it open. When you turn the oven control up top the gas travels down through that valve and onto the burner where the pilot lights it. A new replacement valve will not come pre-adjusted. You will have to sit the old one beside the new one and turn the adjustment nut till the orifices are the same height. That will get ya close. After bubble testing you can turn it on and tweak the flame. I like to have mine half way up the flame spreader. If the flame is too low it will take an hour to bake a pie shell. If it is too high all the food will be burnt on the bottom and raw on top.
on the gas valve there is a orfice a pin hole you can ajust the size of the orfice by tighting the ajustment a little a 1/4 turn . it is on the valve where the gas gos out to the bunner usualy a 1/2 in open wrench fits on it its made of brass you have to open the top to see it there is also a air ajustment where the bunner fits over the gas valve orfice if the flame is red open it more if its to hot close the air a little make the flame red then turn the gas down tell its blue agin
There is actually an adjustment to turn the pilot flame 'up' just a bit. This will help so they don't go out. You need to gain access to the pilot flame. right nest to the flame there is a screw, turn it CCW to increase flame height. Just a bit, it's all it needs.
Sounds as though the pilot light in your oven went out. On the inside of the oven there should be a small hole about the size of a 50cent piece on the floor of the oven. Turn on the gas for the oven, light a matchstick or rolled up piece of paper, stick it into that hole and it should light, monitor the oven for 30 seconds to see if it starts to heat. SAFETY 1st!
Is orifice that gas flows thru into burner clogged/restricted? IF not, then Ignitor may be bad; I would replace it. If still same issue then gas valve is bad. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it. Flame height does not change regardless of your setting- it's either on or off; thermostat is not like an accelerator. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
does it light then immediately go out? if yes, usually you have to hold in a button to allow gas to flow while you light the pilot, and hold this button until the therm0-couple is heated with the pilot flame. If the thermo-couple is not sufficiently heated and you let go of this button, the pilot light will go out as the safety circuit thinks there's no flame and unburned gas is entering the oven.
The other thing you could do is adjust the height of the pilot flame... there's usually an adjustment screw near the button described above which will allow you to adjust the height of the flame. Make the flame just big enough to guarantee that it keeps the thermo-couple hot AND that it can light the oven without being blown out.
