Although pilot lights are lit, only one burner works the other 3 do not??? also do not see pilot light for oven??? does it even have one or light by match only??


Hello Linda

All burners have a small hole in the flame spreader which directs a jet of gas to the pilot lights when you turn the burner knob. These get clogged by food residues over time.

Remove all the burners and give them a good soak in hot soapy water. Sometimes you need oven spray first.

All modern ovens have a pilot light. There will be a red button which is usually hidden below the front removable panel or just inside a warming drawer at the top. You press and hold the red button and then light the pilot inside the oven. You continue holding the button for the flame to heat up a gadget called a thermocouple. This is a valve that only allows gas to the main burner if the pilot light is alight.

Take a look at the videos in the link.

Hello i have a J5 lincat fryer and the pilot stays alight but the burners won't connect (light) have replaced the thermostat and the thermo couple but still no joy any ideas on this not sure what to do...


Check if there is 500 to 750 millivolts across the thermopile wires; thermopile generates 500 to 750 millivolts if properly heated to energize pilot and main valve solenoids of the gas valve for pilot and main burner operation. If the voltage across the thermopile is good and all wiring connections are ok, I think you have to replace the gas valve.
Regards.

Burner will not light. With the pilot light burning and the gas is turned-on to ignight the main burner the pilot light goes out.


call aservice tech your pilot light might be blocked therefore the pilot flame might not be strong enough to handle the puff of gas when the gas valve opens ps. if the unit is off in the summer spiders are usually the problem. Hope this helps
