2 Answers

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

Re: Rangemaster 110

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.

Re: Rangemaster 110

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.

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.
