Question about Ovens

1 Answer

My Charmglow Gourmet outdoor grill is only two years old but now the searing burner won't stay lit. I hold in the knob in the start position to allow the flame to get good and hot (which I've had to do since it was new) but now when I release the knob instead of staying lit it just flutters out. A full propane tank makes no difference. The other burners work fine. Ideas?

If the valve is equipped with a thermocouple, that is going to likely be the problem. It's job is to heat up, then turn on the gas valve and keep it open. If the thermocouple is bad, the valve can't stay open, and shuts off, since this is a safety feature of gas feeds, in case the flame goes out.
The thermocouple is a rod shaped piece of metal that sits, physically, about the pilot flame.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Push knob in on oven sparks & lights release knob flames go out


Often on ovens you have to hold the knob down for a period of time before the flame will stay alight.


Try getting the oven lit then holding the knob down for 30 seconds. That should be more than enough time if that is indeed the problem.

Is it a new oven or has the problem just arisen? It

How do you light the gas grill


I assume outdoor gas grill? If so, turn on gas at tank. There should be a knob that has a lightening bolt or something similar representing ignition. Turn the knob to that diagram and click the igniter till it lights. If you don't have igniter use a long grill lighter. Once that is lit you can turn other knobs that control other rows of gas if so equiped.

Pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top... previous user says to turn on gas and lite "sensor" or "2nd pilot" it stays lit as long as oven knob is on but oven burner does not light. "sensor" goes out...


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.

How do i turn on a flavel milano 50 oven?. Never worked with gas stoves before and no manual in sight.


Turn on the gas knob for the oven (below the grill)
You will see an ignition button below the one that switches on the oven light,it is clearly marked.
Press in and hold the gas knob and press ignite button,you will see the safety bar flame light,when the safe to operate temperature is reached,the oven will stay lit after you release the gas supply knob.
Set oven temperate guage (gas mark 4 is approx electric 200 degrees,thats all there is too it
Hope that helps

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light


sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.
