I belive that the thermostat to the oven isnt working properly.The t-stat bulb sits inside the oven on the wall and this is what senses the temp in the oven.If its out of place or the t-stat is bad the oven will just keep heating.hope this helps let me know.HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

My top [gas] oven will not heat. The ignitor lights. The gas strip has small blue flames lit along it. However, no matter what i turn the oven up to the flame will not increase.

Gas oven burners are usually a variable gas flow. When on high, the gas valve is fully open and the flame is high. As the heat increases in the oven, the flame reduces in size until the burner is running on whats called "bypass rate" or "maintenance rate" This is the smallest flame the burner can operate on without going out. I would suggest that the thermostat gas valve is faulty and not fully opening. It is also possible that the thermocouple may be faulty. This is a solid piece of wire which is usually situated in the flame path above the burner and connects to the gas valve and regulates the flame. It also triggers the gas valve to turn off , if no flame is present. I would try that first. A lot cheaper than a gas valve. In Australia, you have to hold a Gas service Licence to do this work.

Very small flame takes like ten minetes for flame to get high


The reason the flame in the oven is so small and takes for ever to heat up is because the oven igniter is weak and can not open the gas valve very much so hardly any gas flows resulting in a low flame size. By replacing the oven igniter the flame will be full size and heat quickly.

Oven lights on low flame but will not come up on high flame .cannon chester cooker.suspect by pass is not working. Do I need control knob/thermostat with the phial. Thanking you.

all gas range ovens have a small metal box in the back upper area of the broiler burner; a gas line runs into this box as do two wires; this is a "flame control " gas valve; the way it works is: after the pilot has been lit as you turn the oven temp control a heating element in the box causes a small valve to open allowing a larger amount of gas into the oven burner to ignite the whole burner If you can only get pilot flame on high replace this valve

Oven burner flame is low

0000000.jpgOn top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL
