Rangemaster 110 I have a Rangemaster 110 and my right hand oven has a problem. It has been my main oven of chice for many years, and sudddenly the flame stays very low, even if the knob is turned to 9. Normally the ovens light, stay low, then the flame increases until temperature is reached. The left one is working ok, but the right one has this problem. Any ideas? How will I fix this ie parts etc? Many thanks - C Catchpole

    Flame in left oven not sufficient to heat oven for cooking.

    Any ideas?

    We have exactly the same problem as detailed in McClairey's post.L/H cooker absolutely fine,R/H lights but flame remains. My guess is a thermocouple failure but this is a guess and I wouldn't know how to begin to fix it. The burners have been thoroughly cleaned but as they light anyway I didn't hold much hope that this would do anything

    Same issue with RH oven happened last November. Rangemaster replaced Flame Supervision Device (FSD) and MIcroswitch on console. Apparently the solenoid inside the FSD had melted under extreme temperature (not caused by cooking but more akin to arc welding!) causing a short circuit which had toasted the microswitch.

    Failed again in early April 2008, then again in early May and once more in June! Engineer called and advised this was vexing the technical people at Rangemaster who had never heard of it before - so can you all please ring them on 01926 457400 and report your faults!!! I sent engineer away with removed FSD and previously removed FSD from early May visit to send to Rangemaster for testing.

    Thought problem resolved until this morning when preheated both ovens for approx 20 mins. Flame rose to heat oven as usual but minutes later cut out, blowing fuse in plug. Changed fuse and reset clock, thinking a good idea to turn on RH oven to see if short circuit recurred. Big mistake as this not only blew fuse but took out the clock which was dead even with the fuse again replaced.

    Will be calling Rangemaster on Monday for fifth visit in seven months. It seems they do not understand their own product. It makes me wonder if their new parts are incompatible with an 8 year old model or are cheap (shoddy?) imports.

    Engineer on last but one visit did try to imply that the household electrics were running at 250V, but this would not explain a current surge. My kitchen ring main is RCD protected which worked when the engineer short inadvertently circuited the control box (which he replaced).

    I hope this adds to the fact base for anyone else with similar issues. I'm going nuts as we hardly use the ovens, but when we do want to use them, it is anyone's guess if they will work.

    I have the same problem. Our cooker is fourteen years old and the right hand gas oven will light but the flame does not increase to a decent level. The other oven is working fine.

    I have the same problem with my right oven it has a low light and wont heat when I turn the knob to 9

  • kangoo Oct 03, 2008

    Same as others, turned off and on, messed with clock, one oven did get going after a while but would like a solution

  • McClairey Oct 29, 2008

    Well - not only have I still got this original problem, but now the clock has gone up the wall ! It keeps flashing 0.00 (as if the power has been interrupted) and I cannot get it back to normal. Have tried all the commbinations suggested in the handbook, but nothing works. Consequently, neither oven will light. AARRGGHH!!!!!!!!

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.

The right hand oven lights, but no matter which gas mark setting you select, the flame does not rise to increase oven temperature, but stays on pilot settings

the flame needs to be adjusted there's a small screw right inside of the shaft where the knob goes. Pull knob off and there should be a screw inside that u shaped shaft. Turn the burners on and set the flame accordingly.

Rangemaster 110 LPG Range (5364) right hand oven lights but flame only stays low? What is the likely problem please

Is this new and recently converted to LP-Gas? Did you install it and convert it or did you have a professional do it? It sounds to me like the wrong size orifice for the oven may have been put in. Was the appliance regulator converted? When you flip the cap, it allows more pressure to the burners, but this affects all stovetop & oven burners, not just one burner. Some ovens require converting the oven thermostat too, but not sure if it applies to this brand. Check your owner's manual and make sure all the steps in the conversion were done. If you had a pro install and convert it, call them back to fix it. Douglas

Rangemaster 110 gas cooker - RH Oven lights but doesn't heat up

Will the flame go out if you turn the control knob to the off position?

Sometimes gas cooking control knobs have two seperate types of control in the one knob. One control turn the gas on or off, one adjusts the variable quantity of gas allowed through a gap to your flame jets. Some control knobs can get gummed up and stick a little. The can be fixed by carefully taking apart the control knob, taking note of EXACTLY how everything goes back together and cleaning any gummed up bits. Then reassemble the knob and drizzle soapy water over the control to test for leaks. A leaky gas join blows bubbles and makes noise. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

Oven will not respond

The knob won't have any effect on the flame size.  The knob controls temperature.  If you're referring to the pilot light staying on and then the main flame not going on...that's another problem.  If the main flame will not go on, the assembly that controls the main flame is likely defective.  If the unit has a thermocouple, you might change it out first.  Sometimes, that's all that is needed and they're cheap.

Left hand oven not getting hot!!

some older ovens did use one side just as a "bread warmer"...only way to tell for sure is to check if there is a burner below the left side

Left hand oven

The left hand oven needs a new flame failure device fitted , it is a normal oven not for slow cooking . This repair can only be carried out safely by a registered Gas Safe engineer . Visit or ring freephone 0800 408 5500 to find one in your area.
