    I also need to know how to replace the flame failure device in a Rangemaster Gourmet 110 gas oven. My range was purchased in November 2000 and is gas fuelled.

My progress to date (20090127):
1 Turn off the gas supply to the oven
2 Turn off the electricity supply
3 Remove the oven linings
4 Remove the storage drawer
5 Remove the three screws holding on the bottom trim and the trim
6 Crank up the front roller
7 Pull out the oven carefully making sure the gas hose and electrical lead are long enough and not caught
8 Working from the rear of the Rangemaster, for the right-hand oven, remove the four screws on the corners of the large cover plate at the back of the oven about half way down on the left-hand side as viewed from the back.
9 Remove the cover plate.
10 Go to the front of the oven. Above the burner assembly, towards the left is a thin metal rod running front to back. This is held in place by a clip at the back and by the hole in the metal frame at the front. Remove the metal clip at the back using a pair of long-nosed pliers. Retain the clip.
11 This should release the metal rod (flame sensing device) and you should be able to push it through the hole and out at the back. It is attached to a long copper wire.
12 Go to the back of the range. You should be able to work the wire back through the hole in the rear metal plate and up to the gas valve. The wire is held in place at the gas valve by a bent clip on the rear right. Carefully bend this clip back towards the oven to release the wire.
13 The wire goes down under the gas valve and to a threded bolt end into the bottom of the gas valve ad the bolt is held in place using a locking nut.
14 Remove the locking nut using a small spanner. The threded bolt should now turn, with the aid of long-nosed pliers.
15 The next trick is to remove this threaded bolt on the end of the copper wire and I have not figured out how to do that. It will unscrew a good way but becomes tight and will not come out, as though something inside the valve is holding it in place. Could it be that the flame sensing device has to be removed and inserted from inside the gas valve? If so, what a daft piece of engineering this is.
16 HELP.

    I did discover that the flame sensing device, valve and solenoid is a complete unit with two gas unions (connections) and three electrical conenctions. The copper lead to the FSD itself is, apparently, a very thin tube containing mercury and, since mercury is toxic, it is not a good idea to break it.

    I purchased a new unit from Gas-On spares in Birmingham, who were very helpful, at a very compettive price and, even though I was capable of fitting it, I was able to secure the services of a local and very good CORGI registered plumber at a fraction of the cost Rangemaster wanted to charge me.

I have a rangemaster 110 and one of the rings is playing up. It lights and then after a few seconds pops and blows itself out. Even when it is lit and running, after 10 secs or so it does it again. I have...


it is always terrible when items does not work as it should.
I expect that this cooker has flame safety.
The first thing I suspect, is your FFD (=flam failure device). Besides the burner are 2 points, one is for the spark, the other is the sensor for the safety device. On that point is connected a thin copper "wire" that goes to the tap. There it is screwed in.
The test is, stays the burner on when you keep the button pressed in. If that is the case, and the burner goes out after letting go the button, then I am sure it is the FFD.

I hope this helps, Kin regards, Dik

Leisure rangemaster 55 gas cooker

It sounds exactly the same as I am experiencing on my oven of the same model. My theory is that the full flame gas is controlled by a thermostat, and that this has broken hence why the oven only stays on preheat. This will be a matter of a replacement part. Most likely the thermostat is a bi-metal strip that, because it has heated and cooled so many times in it's life it has simply finally given up. Try searching online for the correct part and get a corgi registered fitter or another suitably qualified fitter to come and replace it.
