Thermo coupler problem

I have owned this oven for about 3 years and it has been nothing but grief.
The stove top works, but there is some sort of defect with the thermo coupler that controls internal oven temperature - there are complaints about it on other websites. When new, the oven never maintained the correct temperature -- it ran very hot -- about 500 degrees no matter how I adjusted the thermostat. When I finally called a repair man, I was told the oven needed a new thermo-coupler. The part if hard to find, so I ordered it from the AVANTI head quarters in Florida. It took 3 MONTHS for the part to arrive from China. The AVANTI service department is unpleasant and unhelpful.
The replacement piece was installed and the oven would not ignite.
At this point I gave up and decided to buy a new 24 inch oven.
Surprise!!!! The AVANTI oven is not really 24 inches wide -- it is 23.5 inches wide. Since my kitchen counters and cabinets were custom built around the oven, I don’t have enough width to replace it with a real 24 inch oven - it won’t fit. If you are looking for a 24 inch oven, buy a Summit oven -- I own one of their fridges and it works great.

SOURCE: Avanti DG241BS - oven will not stay on

There has to be a protection system in the burner assembly to cut the supply of gas to the burner if it does not light. For the case of an oven the supply must be cut off immediately if the burner and its pilot go out. For that gas control system to work the burner control must "recognize" with a sensor when the burner is lit and when it is not. Pushing the knob "in" momentarily on this model bypasses the protection system momentarily to allow a burner to be ignited in the first place. If releasing the knob extinguishes the flame the control system is not "seeing" the flame. I tried to find some detail info on you particular ignition system but to no avail so all I can offer is a general approach to these kinds of problems . You need to find and clean or replace the sensor used to detect a flame. It could be an optical one (doubt that) or a temperature flame sensor, a thermocouple sensor, or some other kind I haven't thought of. Fixing this problem involves first determining what kind of sensor it uses. A copy of a service manual for this model can help you determine that. Try to clean the flame detector, and if that doesn't work you have to replace it or the gas control assembly it is a part of. If you have a spark ignition and its not sparking when it should first clean it --carefully--. Spilled food can short them out. Unplug the range before doing this. The owners manual shows it to be under the top burners which can be removed for cleaning this.

You need to order parts from AVANTI.
http://www.avantiproducts.com/
Very disappointing customer service.
I have been waiting 6 weeks for a new thermostat. It will not
arrive from China until June -- I was originally told it would come in April. All AVANTI parts are from China and AVANTI in Florida is the
only dealer. I will never buy AVANTI again.

My stove does not get hot enough


your oven/stove thermo-couple has gone bad and senses too much heat too soon before its actually hot and shuts off the gas supply,it is located inside the oven cavity in a clip on the top of the oven cavity and is normally replaced with the oven control dial as a calibrated unit

ater spilled (4-5 cups) on the stove top running down into the stove control panel face (where you view oven temp, timer, etc). No water ever dripped into the oven or oven window. The stove top still works but the oven, warming drawer, clock are all non responsive after three days. No buttons on the control panel work at all. What repair is needed?

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;


most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

Thermo coupler on all the time, push in button, shuts off gas


Bad Safety valve. (valve w/red button). Thermocouple keeps the magnet open to keep pilot and so gas can flow to burner. Make sure pilot is clean and strong and hitting thermocouple. If it doesnt stay lit replace Safety Valve.
