First, check to make sure gas is actually getting to the range and hasn't been stopped by a clog or simply shut off accidentally. Next, make sure the120v AC is present. If you verify that gas *is* reaching the range and there is 120 volts getting to the range, then the main gas valve is next in line(where the gas line connects). The part numbers for the main valves in the range are:
8523378, gas shut-off
8054079, gas valve
I hope this helps you!
Hello, Their is 2 possible things that are causing the oven to not heat.
1) the pilot burner is clogged with build up and not burning corretly...the standing pitol light is small and when the oven is turned on the pilot enlarges and heats a small bulb connected to a tube on a gas valve,if the pilot burner is clogged it will burn the small pilot but will not enlarge to heat that bulb so the gas will flow to the main burner.If that is whats happening the pilot burner needs to be replaced.
2) the pilot burner is properly heating the bulb connected to the above mentioned gas valve but that gas valve is bad and not opening once the pilot has heated the bulb..so in that case that gas valve would need to be replaced
Hi- This should have a gas Safety Valve, this is the main valve to the oven (this probably has 2). If you remove the lower panel under the doors they are probably right there. Looks like a large gas valve with a button on it, sometimes the button is red. You need to hold in that button while lighting the pilot and keep holding it in for a few seconds until the thermocouple gets hot enough to tell the valve to keep the pilot on. You'll have to do this for both ovens if there are 2 valves. It's possible the valves are located somewhere else on the range so you may have to hunt a bit. If the pilots still won't stay lit you may need new thermocouples in which case I'd call a Tech out to look at it. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
This range has a standing pilot light for the top burners and griddle top. If you look through the small hole under the flat top griddle you can see a small line about 1/4 inch that runs from the main gas manifold to the pilot light about 6 inches back under the griddle top. You will need a tightly wrapped piece of paper or a long match or small wooden stick, like a chop stick. Light the end of your paper, or stick and put it through the hole all the way to the pilot light. It should catch on fire. Whenever the main gas line is on, the gas will flow through the pilot light. If it will not light, there is a pilot light adjustment that is a very small screw in the middle of a 1/2 inch square metal fitting that is screwed into the gas manifold. If the pilot won't light, this screw may be turned all the way in, thus cutting the gas off to the pilot light. If necessary take a very small flat blade screw driver and turn the screw counterclockwise a half turn. That will increase the gas flow to the pilot light. Another way to light the pilot is to put your burning stick or match into the hole near the burner under the griddle plate, then slowly turn the heat valve to the on position. The main burner will light and then the pilot will light off of it. Don't get your face too close to the griddle when you light it, gas can flash back into your face.
Check for a pilot light in the oven.
If there is no pilot light, the ignition wire is probably faulty and needs repair / replacement.
If there is a pilot light, but no main burner, it will be the "hot wire" sensor connected to the main gas valve.
If this is defective, it will not allow the main gas valve to open for the oven.
Have a registered tradesman replace this as you do not want a gas leak.
There are actually two pilot lights to light, (maybe three) Under the top there would be the old style flash back tubes leading from two burners to a pilot. This small flame stays lit while the gas is on. When you turn a burner on some gas flows back through the tube and flashes or lilghts the burner. When you turn the gas on there is always gas through the pilots, unless shut off with the little set screws if you follow the lines. From the factory these are on and open. Small set screws also adjust pilot flame size. THe other pilot for the oven is down by the main burner. There is a small cap tube from the gas valve to a holder just under the burner. This is where it is lit.......... There is another line to the thermostat when you lturn it on that opens more gas to increase the pilot to a biggger flame to open the gas valve burner assembly. .Also ranges usually come set for natural gas, and you have to do spud adjustments, regulator, air flow only if you want to change to lp...... Put a new flex line on, and be careful with gas...........
