SOURCE: oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on

Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.

SOURCE: gas stove DCS

sounds like the thermal fuse may have gone on it.

is it just the stove or does the cooktop work funny too?

a technician shouldn't cost you more than $80.00 to diagnose. part is farily inexpensive too + labour to install.

SOURCE: DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat

This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

SOURCE: Oven slow to heat

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...
Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..

I've just converted my stove from natural gas to propane and the oven and broiler flame are both to high, how can I lower them?


When converting from natural gas to propane you have to switch the regulator to propane. then on most modern stoves you have to turn the orifice hoods down to adjust for the higher pressure of propane. there are some stoves that you have to purchase a propane conversion kit with different orifices for the burners and oven burners.

Oven needs to be calibrated....it heats approximately 100 degrees below where it should


Not familiar with the brand of course but if your model has an Eaton oven control like this one for Viking Page 23 their is an adjustment screw for calibrating the oven temps. Other controls use an adjustment inside the shaft of the oven control itself.

Go to partstown.com and look up the service manual and calibration steps for your stove.

I have a natural gas hookup and my grill takes a long time to heaat up (15 minutes) and max degrees is 350 - 375. I found dust in the connection hose blew ut out. Also took grill apart and cleaned...


Unfortunately, that's the way it does on Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment. The reason being, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Of course, on the plus side, you don't have to get tanks refilled. With that said, the thermometer on the grill may be faulty.

To test this theory, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer (the kind that can be placed on an oven rack) and place inside the grill, when you're preheating it with the lid closed. Once you grill thermometer reaches 350 degrees, open the grill hood and compare it the two temperature readings. If the oven thermometer is reading significantly higher, then you no the grill thermometer is faulty.

Hope this helps you get back up to temperature.

Oven will not work


With a gas range, I wouldn't fool with it. Get a service man out there now! Gas stoves are great untill they malfuntion and need a qualified service person to check it out. It's cheep insurance if there is a gas leek causing the problem. The alternitive-------!

Hi, we have a dcs 366 gas range. the pilot light for the oven went out and we can't seem to locate the pilot to re-light. the manual doesn't really go into detail for the oven...only the stove top. is this...


You don't give the model number of your DCS range, but it probably doesn't have a pilot light.
More likely it uses and electronic igniter. Internet search on "gas oven ignitor". I think this
might help you with your problem.
