Question about Indesit K344GX Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Indesit K3G21XG oven not staying lit without knob pushed in.

We've had this cooker for a few years and it has worked faultlessly up until now. The oven does not have any kind of electronic ignition system and you have to light it manually by turning the oven knob and holding it in whilst holding a lighter or match by the hole on the bottom/front of the oven. Usually 6 seconds or so will do the job.

Alas now the oven lights without a problem but no matter how long you hold the knob in as soon as it is released the oven burner goes out.

Any advice would be much appreciated as we really don't have the money to replace the cookerand it has been kept in great condition.

SOURCE: Oven doesn't stay on

You need a new thermocouple. This is a safety device which holds a small gas valve open when a flame is detected. It stops unburnt gas building up in the oven. I would seek professional advice from a gas safe registered engineer. Check www.gassafe.co.uk for an engineer in your area. Good Luck

Hi there. Try cleaning the thermopile, it must be free of soot or any other form of dirt, the pilot flame should be of good quality, as well as the gas pressure.

Belling G755 Cooker oven wont stay lit


I'll give this a go! With a cooker like this, you depress and then turn the control knob, press the ignition button and continue to depress the control knob for a few seconds. This is because a device called a thermocouple is heated by the flame and you have to continue to depress the control knob so that sufficient gas flows to heat up the thermocouple. If the thermocouple does not get hot or stay hot then the gas valve is automatically closed - stopping the gas. The thermocouple is a 'flame failure' safety device. If the gas gets cut off then the flame goes out and the thermocouple goes cold switching off the gas valve automatically. However, you are having to try and manually keep the gas going for a good five minutes. I would think that there is either a problem with the thermocouple or the gas control valve!

Cooker


I just installed one in my house. I found that when you start the lower (gas) oven you need to turn the dial all the way on to 500*, push the knob in (you should hear the igniters clicking), then even when you see flames coming out of the burner, continue the ignition for 10 to 15 seconds. It should continue to stay lit thereafter.
