Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Hi, I have a New World WE5244N00 Plan 6 SBS cooker. For some reason the oven is not working. It would appear that no gas is being delivered to the oven and hence it will not light up. Would you be able to advise what could possibly be wrong with it? Regards Mr Hallan

    Hi,

    Based on your solution, where can I get a new igniter? By the looks of it, they are probably relatively easy to re-install. Would this be the case for someone with basic DIY skills?

    Regards

    Dinesh

    Many thanks for the solution, I will try and follow your instructions and see if it resolves the problem.

    Would you know where I can purchase the spare part from?

    Regards

    Mr Hallan

Hi
If you are having ignition problems with one of the oven manifolds (bake or broil), it may be a simple matter of a weak or bad igniter. If BOTH manifolds were experiencing the same problem, you would potentially have a bad regulator or electronic oven control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all your oven features.
These igniters do wear out due to frequency of use and need replaced from time to time.

The igniter typically goes bad in one of two ways, the igniter either stops glowing completely, or becomes weak over time and doesn’t produce enough current to open the gas safety valve [in this case the igniter will still glow but the oven still won’t light]. Longer ignition times can be another symptom of an igniter possibly going bad.
For a bad igniter . Follows these steps:
However The same method applies to both the broiler and bake manifold.

UNPLUG the range and turn the gas off if you have a local gas cut-out
Open oven door and remove (if possible). Refer to your owner’s manual to see if there are instructions on how to remove the oven door. Some have spring-loaded locking hinges, while others just lift out. If you cannot figure out how to remove the oven door, use care not to lean on the door or put too much weight on it. A common complaint following any kind of oven maintenance is that the oven door doesn’t shut correctly any longer. This is usually caused by bending the hinges or springs coming loose.
1. Remove the oven racks, and remove the oven pan. (There are usually two screws either in the back or front of the oven holding the pan in place).
2. Remove the Flame Spreader. This is a metal plate on top of the manifold.
3. The igniter will be mounted directly to the gas manifold. Follow the wires that lead to igniter. It will either be plugged into a connector, or be connected together with ceramic wire lugs. Your replacement igniter should come with extra ceramic wire lugs. In the event the plug does not match the one on your range, cut the wires and connect using the ceramic wire lugs. DO NOT use standard wire lugs, they are not heat resistant and will melt.
4. Unplug the old igniter and remove the mounting screw holding it to the gas manifold.
5. Install new igniter on gas manifold using care not to handle the element on the igniter with your hands. The oil from your hands can cause damage and/or premature failure. The igniter is also considered FRAGILE.
6. Reconnect the wires using the recommendations mentioned in Step 5.
7. Plug in the range, turn the gas valve back on and do a visual test by setting the oven temperature to the desired range. Allow 30 – 90 seconds for the igniter to light the gas. Turn oven off and allow sufficient time to cool. If the oven has only been lit for a minute or so, the cool down period will be brief.
8.Reinstall the flame spreader, oven pan, and racks. Reinstall door if necessary.

The ignition continues after gas lights on new world elegance/cooker and grill


The igniter will glow orange while the oven is on. This is NORMAL. If it went out the burner would not come back on when the thermostat calls for heat .

Oven clock no display and oven wont work any way to bypass clock new world cgk 21556


These things are a pain! When you first power up a lot of New Workd ovens, they come up in AUTO mode and the oven won't work, so you have to take it out of auto mode and stop the clock flashing. I'm giessing that though your clock DISPLAY isn't working, the clock is and the oven think it is.

There are 6 buttons below the clock display.To take it out of AUTO and stop the clock and oven thinking the display is flashing:

Numbering the buttons from left to right as 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 (because they have silly symbols!) press the 4th button (a picture of a hand) you will hear a little click and the oven will now work. If you have to power the unit off for more than about a minute at any time, you will need to do this again

What does it mean when a gas cooker needs hardwiring


Hi,
It means that it does not have a cord and a plug to just plug it into a wall socket...
It needs to be "hardwired" into the electrical circuit with a regular piece of wire...

There is a strong smell of gas from my cooker, pipe from cyclinder to cooker appears ok , new world 55wlg


Do not light anything if you are smelling gas. Make up a soapy solution in a spray bottle and apply to all connections and look for bubbles. Most common place to leak is hook-up at cylinder and hook-up at cooker. If you can't find the leak and continue to smell gas, do not use it. Also make sure your cylinder is not empty.

Time to change the thermostat. the cap tube sounds like it has been broken. If it has a temp control board, change the temp probe. The clicking sound, if unit is equiped with an ignition control modual, is bad, (not shutting off after sensing pilot) or sensor rod is dirty.
