If this is an lod cooker and you are rightly concerned for your safety you should consider changeing the cooker for an appliance that has thermocouple safety devices . these controls dont allow gas to pass unless the burner is lit and should the flame blow out it will sht the gas off aftre 30-45 seconds

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,
GENE

Burners turn on sometimes as does the oven but then may not turn off


Hello, when you turn on one of the burner, can you hear some clicking while you turn on one of the burners? This is an electric ignitor, and when you turn one burner on all the burner ignitor will click.


It is possible, that you are turning your burners on the stove to quick. Take a look at one of knobs and you will see ignition--low---medium---high. To get the burning ignited the knob needs to be position at the ignition site. You'll hear it click-click-click and the burner will ignite.



Now, the oven. The oven ignitor is on a time delay. You will push the bake button and across the screen will say something like this "Please set oven temperature" You'll set the oven temperature to---let say 350 degrees---. Then the screen will say "push start button" then you push the start button to turn your oven on. Now, the screen will say "pre" this means that the oven is pre-heating the oven to your desired temperature. Before all this happens there is ignitor in the oven and it has a heater on the ignitor in oven. This heater will heat up to desired temperature and once it reaches the that temperature the ignitor will ignite and the gas will turn on.



Why--one would say for this procedure. The old kitchen stoves had a very bad habit of of flash over---that is gas will built up in the over and once the pilot light ignited the gas---wussh and it blow the oven door open. These ovens would sometimes huff too.



Therefore, take your time and your biscuit will be OK

I am sorry Sandan2. I didn't finish reading your question. Never mind on what I said here.

If the burners will not shut off sometimes, then there could a gas regulator problem.



One very important question. Is your kitchen stove using Natural Gas or LPG--liquid Petroleum Gas?



If it is using either type of fuel as mention above. It is very important that you contact Appliance repair person that is certified by the state that you live in that he/she is license by the state to work with gas appliances.

I wish you luck, but it very it important that you contact a certified Technician... Also, move the stove away from the wall and look behind it. There a black gas pipe and at the end is a brass valve, Take wrench and turn the gas valve off. The gas valve will have a stainless steel flex line attached to it, and the other end is to your stove. Don't use your stove.



If those gas burners and the oven are leaking gas. There is possibility to blow you and your family with your home up. Don't use the stove, Until you have it check out...please. GB you/your family...stewbison

The orange glow you see is coming from the oven igniter. The igniter needs to glow white hot in order to light. You need to replace the oven igniter. Hope this helps.

Garland oven does not work


Hi, it is hard to tell for sure, but it sounds like your safety device, the component that keeps the pilot lit, may have failed, allowing gas to the pilot, but not letting gas through to the burner. See your manual on/off valve lets gas to the thermostat, then through the thermostat down to the safety, because you wouldn't want gas to get past there if there is no pilot, and now that part is stuck open, but the rest of the part is not engaged to open and let gas continue to the burner. There is an easy way to tell, under the bottom panel, is a part with a red button ( the safety ) and connected to it is a copper looking tube, or the thermocouple, it can be disconnected by unscrewing it from the safety with a wrench, if the pilot goes out, your safety is mostly working, if not, it is bad, and needs replacement. Let me know, hope that help, and thank you.

Electronic Ignition for Gas Stove Doesn't Work


We have the same problem constantly. We have discovered that if we disconnect from electrical outlet, we "reboot the interior control" and it starts again. Said to say, tonight it doesn't seem to be working. I hate these! I'm going to go look for an "old fashioned gas range."/

GE profile gas stove igniter don't stop igniting


take a look at the igniter located in the center of two burners. clean the gap with a stiff brush between the eletrode and the upper plate. the distance is preset at the factory. you may have enough buildup to close the gap enough to trigger the igniter.
