Hi I have a proline gas cooker cpg564gw and the oven takes forever to get alight, we hold the oven botton in for 2 -5 minutes at full 190 temp even with the door shut but it takes too long. There doesn't seem to be a pilot light! It runs off of a propane gas bottle a red one! We did have all the gas nozzles changed to propane type, Hope you can help John Gilbert

If you did not change the regulator's orafice or the regulator itself it needs to be replaced with the appropriate sized regulator and orafice for LP or propane, the regulator is the box that the red tank's hose goes to in the back of the stove. Most newer stoves use electric start for pilot ignition.

Do you see the ignitor glowing? There are a few things we need to check here. The ignitor should 'glow', which is what lights the gas when the gas valve opens. The gas valve won't open of the ignitor doesn't get hot enough. Sometimes the ignitor can glow, but not hot enough and the gas valve will partially open.
Open the oven door and watch down underneath to see if you can see the glow of the ignitor first thing. Then we'll go from there...

    This is not about gas pressure. I need to know if the ignitor is glowing, you can see it turn orange and glow to light the gas. Can you look in and watch for that to happen?

Sounds like you may have a low gas pressure condtion, have the gas pressure tested, should be around 8 PSI

The pilot(if any) also needs to be adjusted to the propane pressure.
Their are various methods for safety on gas equipment. Some use an ignitor
and others use a sensor.
Some gas equipment works under it's own power.

A weak oven ignitor will cause this problem. even though it eventually lights the temp has dropped considerably so you don't get consistent temp. turn the oven on and listen for the burner to light. should light within about 2 minutes. if not replace oven ignitor(s)

Preheat takes forever


http://www.applianceaid.com/nuker.html
click the link  Oven temp sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity and the temp sensor changes resistance, this change in ohm resistance tells the oven control what temperature the oven cavity at and tells the control to shut off the element or turn it back on. The most common temp sensors used today ( *not all ) are approx 1000-1100 ohm resistance at room temperature ( 70�F )
Some ohm readings and there temperature:
Degrees F    -   Resistance
            100 - 1143 ohms
             200 - 1350 ohms
             300 - 1553 ohms
             350 - 1654 ohms
             400 - 1753 ohms
            500 - 1949 ohms

Oven not working properly


I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.

Small Electric cooker on Range does not reach temperature


The orange light is designed to go off when temperature required is achieved in the oven. If the light remains on it suggests that the oven is not heating, It could be a thermostat problem but it's more likely to be the element.
