Question about Rangemaster 110 (Gas) Kitchen Range
Reading the user manual, it states that the flame initially comes on low, until it is "sensed" by the flame sensing device. This to me sounds suspiciously like the flame isn't being sensed and so never gets increased to the normal level.
I've not had time for a proper look at it.... but from a quick glance this morning this looked like a "flame rectifier" probe next to my burner (as we commonly use in boilers to sense if the gas burner is lit). This is just a metal probe. They send a high-ish AC voltage signal (Sine wave) from it, through the flame, to the earthed metal case. The flame acts like a diode (yes it really does work !) and simple electronics detects the change in the applied signal (rectified) due to the flame. I know from personal experience they (the probes) get coated with crud (carbon, etc) and need a good clean. I suggest you try cleaning both it and the metal area opposite it. If necessary the probes metal tip could be GENTLY rubbed with very fine Emmery cloth, etc, if badly coated.
Other than that, if it is sensing the flame, then it must be the gas control device (solenoid valve ?) that is jammed, blocked or just defective.

I have had the same problem with rangemaster 110, r/h solinoid,i purchased a replacement from an authorized dealer, same fault within 6 months, i had to purchase a replacement so they could check the first replacement was faulty before they refund my money. now the second one has failed. so we have decided to use it until the l/h oven gives up (hopefully sooner than later) then we will be buying another double oven, but it will not be rangemaster.
