I have a Hardwick propane stove, 4 burners and oven. The stovetop burners work fine (need a match), but now the oven does not ignite despite the pilot light working fine. I have brushed the pilot light...

Hello Patrick,

WHen you turn on the oven/broiler does the size of the polot ligh increase in size??
the way it is suppose to work is...thier a small free standing polot light and when ya turn on the oven the size of the pilot is suppose to increase and heat a little bulb that is connected to a wire that is mounted to the pilot burner and when that bulb heats up it will allow the main gas to flow into the oven(not pilot burner).

If the size of the pilot does not increase it could be caused by a clogged pilot burner. the way to determine that is TURN OFF GAS SUPPLY...disconnect gas line from pilot burner and turn on gas to unit, light that tube with it disconnected from pilot burner and turn oven on and see if size of flame drastically increases...if it does turn gas off and remove and replace pilot burner
if flame sizedoes not increase the problem is going to be the thermostat

If the pilot does increase and heats the bulb on the pilot burner the problem will be with the gas valve that,that bulb in the pilot burner accathes to is bad .

now chances of the thersostat still being available is very slim if the pilot burner is clogged and needs replaced they are still available their is 2 of them one has the mounting plate on the left and one is on the right.
here is what they look like

oldtech2332_148.jpgPart number for this one is 1898-021 notice how the mounting tab is on the right

oldtech2332_149.jpgthis one is pt# 1898-022 the tab is on the left

That when performing a quick search on google is pretty much all that still available teh thermostat (would need model number) is doubtful to find also a good chance the gas valve is also no longer available

Good luck,

Gas stove works, but oven does not

A gas oven will have some built in safety devices. Assuming that you have an electric pilot light sparking device, anything in the pilot light circuit could cause your problem

The oven does not "want" to turn the gas on unless there is an operating pilot system.

Since you never smell gas, but gas is available, then something in the pilot light circuit sounds like the culprit.

It could be as simple as carbon build up on the igniter or an internal fusing mechanism.

If you can get into the oven to the igniter, you could try cleaning the unit with a plastic scrunge.

I'm going to guess that this is not going to respond well to 'home grown' measures and that it will require replacement of parts.

Perhaps it is time to bite the bullet and call in repair......

good luck

Gas oven dosnt work

the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

Gaffers & Sattler stove

The pilot is under the bottom oven deck, usually you can lift the front edge, and slide it out, smelling gas without a pilot would be bad, that means either A : your safety is bad, and allowing gas to flow anyway, which requires replacement, and you may as well replace the thermocouple, and clean the pilot. or B : it is old enough it does not have a protected pilot, and you have to manually light it, usually indicated by an open hole in the front middle of the oven deck plate when you open the door, with a tube going to the burner. or C : your oven burner is bad or misaligned with the burner, and is shooting gas away from the pilot area, it would light via an open pilot eventually, but you don't want that. Please let us know, or have a qualified servicer look at it. Happy New Year, and thank you.

Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.
