Question about Moffat Ovens
I have an old Moffat Program Gas cooker. I am having problems with the oven. It lights with no problem, but even with the dial on 9 (which is the Max) it does not heat up and only stays 'warm".
Can you throw any light on this for me. Has it got a thermo coupler, which needs replacing?
Thanks, Peter Dobson
Sounds to me like the oven thermostat has gone.

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.

Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.
1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.
2.Push the ignition switch once.
3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.
4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.
5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.
