Question about Ovens
All of the burners release gas and can form a fire (the ignitor stopped working long ago, but i'm fine using matches), but only two of them remain lit. As soon as you press in the button and release the gas, they just go out, whereas the other two work fine. The strange part is that I disassembled the whole stove top (an Oranier "Dessauer"), cleaned all of the burners/buttons/knobs, reassembled everything, and now one of the original working burners no longer works, while one of the previously broken ones does. My guess is it has something to do with the button/valve - since gas is escaping fine, the valve i think is just closing too much so the burner can't stay lit. Any thoughts on how to fix the valve and or buttons? Could the problem be something I haven't thought of yet? Thanks!
Simple flame sensors at fault eg thermocouples replace bad sensors and dsi box (direct spark ignition )

It's probably the ignitor and there may be soemthing clogging one of the gas holes. You can gently use a scrub brush to dislodge any cloggs and see if that helps. You might have to replace the ingitor if this doesn't work. We have parts, so please call us to help. Hope this does the trick for you. Ella

Testimonial: "Thanks very much you've confirmed what I thought now all I have to do is figure out how to fix them or bypass them."
SOURCE: The oven of my westinghouse
This oven is provided with a gas safety- the oven knob has a thermoswitch system: inside the knob valve there's a switch that is controlled by a thermostat , it allows the passing of the gas only after it has been heated. For that to work you must keep the knob pressed for at least 10 seconds after the burner has been lit - the time needed for the thermostat to heat up and allow the gas flow.
Your problem is caused by a faulty knob valve: the safety system of the knob is not disengaged after the thermostat gets hot. You will have to replace it: beware, the tube of the thermostat goes all the way to the burner of the oven and it's hard to replace, it will be a long and fiddly job

While your holding in the knob after lighting the pilot,their is a thermocoupler that is heating up and will hold automatically what your pushing in, that thermocoupler is defective
