CANNON LANGDALE C50GLK

More of a question then i problem..when you turn the knob of any of the top rings, you can hear the gas come through,you push the knob inward and it ignites,which is how it is suppose to be. Now when it comes to the grill or oven knobs when you turn them no gas can be heard coming through until you actually push the knob inwards to ignite it, which then as to be held inward for a number of seconds or the flame doesnt stay lit...is this the way the oven and grill are spose to work??

SOURCE: Flame will not stay lit in oven of countrychef 100g

Yes very simple. There is a bulb the flame is heating with a small tube that runs to the gas valve this is the saftey sensor that is bad called a thermo-couple , they are common to go out and should be easy to find online. Let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: oven lights on low flame but will not come up on

all gas range ovens have a small metal box in the back upper area of the broiler burner; a gas line runs into this box as do two wires; this is a "flame control " gas valve; the way it works is: after the pilot has been lit as you turn the oven temp control a heating element in the box causes a small valve to open allowing a larger amount of gas into the oven burner to ignite the whole burner If you can only get pilot flame on high replace this valve

If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

SOURCE: pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top...

On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.

Probably the safety valve is stuck closed or the bi-metal inside has died. You could try cleaning the probe on the pilot assembly and repositioning it so more flame can hit or clean the buildup around the pilot to make it a little hotter. When replacing the safety valve it will not be preset. Sit it beside the old one and get the orifice height the same and you will be in the ballpark of where you want that flame. More Here

Unable to replace front control knobs when they go on cannot turn them


the knobs only go on one way, you have to line them up then they will push on. if you have an electric range you have to push on the knob before you turn it. failure to push before turning will result in breaking the knob again.

How do I lift the stove top to turn off pilot model # FGF366DCB?


there isn't a pilot in it,it has an electronic spark module in it.what problem are you having?when you turn it to lite it you'll hear a clicking sound,that's the sparking that lites the gas just like you're gas grill.if you want to remove the top you have to remove the two phillips screws out of each burner head,sometimes they don't come out and you have to drill them out,if the burner isn't shutting off the gas valve could be broke or the knob could be broke,if it's clicking just unplug it and you can lite the top burners with a match or bbq clicker to lite them until you get it fixed depending on what problem you are having.if the gas won't shut off by turning the knob you'll have to shut down the gas at the valve that feeds the stove.but like i said if you want to lift the top you have to remove all the screws in the burner heads.hope this helps you out.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-FGF366DCB/1428/0124002?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=FGF366DCB go to this site and you can look up your machine.

Halogen ring not working


Hi .
It sounds like the temp control is faulty.
Either way you are going to have to remove the hob top to access the controls and elements, Then you can check if the element is getting a feed to it.

Sometimes you can see if the element has gone, .

If you need any further help, let me know.Good luck.

Mid 90's Magic Chef gas stove


hi there,

since you can smell gas, you have a gas leak. i would recomend checking and cleaning the gas valves. if you can hear sparking, that means it's just the valves. sometimes cleaning the rods will fix the problem.

Cooker


I just installed one in my house. I found that when you start the lower (gas) oven you need to turn the dial all the way on to 500*, push the knob in (you should hear the igniters clicking), then even when you see flames coming out of the burner, continue the ignition for 10 to 15 seconds. It should continue to stay lit thereafter.
