Question about Ovens
Have an old commercial stove/oven/griddle combo, purchased second hand. everything works, but when I lit the oven pilot I was able light the oven, everything looked operational for a few minutes. After shutting the gas off I had to relight everything and again the pilot lit, then the oven. I set the oven for 400 and put an oven thermometer on the rack. The burner turned off and I am unable to get it to relight. Pilot is still on but looks very small. I can push the red button on the gas valve in and the pilot is normal momentarily. No joy on lighting the burner again.
any thoughts are appreciated in advance
I would take out the pilot and clean it up and see what happens,also look behind the unit and see if theres a gas regulator on the gas line,if so you will see a nut on it take it off with a pair of pliers and clean as well.that valve is actually the saftey valve,when the pilot lights the flame impinges on the thermocouple and that sends a millivolt back to that valve in order to open.if none of these resolve your problem i would replace the thermocouple first as this is a cheap part and easy to put on.if you need a part # i can give it to you.let me know.
