I have a Eurolec upright gas stove / oven model 5260 5 406 The oven will light but once you remove the pressure on the temp /on knob the gas won't stay alight. Sometimes it will stay alight for a short period (20 -30 secs) then it goes out again. Thanks Bill / Traralgon

SOURCE: oven wont stay alight on new world 110G

Hi - I had this problem too. I assume you are referring to the automatic oven, not the manual one. There is a small 'Licon' switch behind the control knob, which provides electrical power to the main gas valve in the oven. It is activated when the knob is turned on and is also connected to the timer clock, so that power is only provided when the timer reaches the cooking start time, or the timer is not being used. I had this replaced by an engineer from New World (at great expense!). Changing it seemed to be fairly straightforward - the engineer removed the two outermost knobs and unscrewed and removed the facia. The switch is behind the main oven knob - but where you might get one from, I don't know. And don't forget to switch off the power before you try to access the switch, as it is likely to be live.
Good luck

I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top


most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

Hi, got old Eurolec Gas oven/hob. Hob lights up fine. Was cooking in oven all morning, no probs. Tried to light oven for evening meal & gas will not stay lit, goes out once ignitor & temp' dial...


Hi, your thermocouple is faulty, it is the little probe like thingy that sticks up into the pilot flame. It is there for safety purposes, detects flame and holds a valve open magnetically to allow the gas to pass through. Try giving it a clean with a scourer, sometimes works, or your pilot flame is not big enough, could be low on gas or unit needs a service Kristian KJ Tech

Eurolec oven fire - gases released made us sick


Good morning Folk!!
A toxicity doctor rang me to say that I have been exposed to vitreous enamel and galvanised metal.
The composition has zinc, chromium, silica so when the gas came off the oven interior, I had "gas fever, short term toxic, that would be eliminated from my body with no expected problems. Apparently welders have this all the time. It causes irritability, nausia and sleepiness. Australia has very poor metal detection in blood testing. It usually has to be sent to America.
I don't trust Eurolec, nor the company who made their baked enamel ovens - Technogas Italy, who now produce for Euro appliances.
I'm getting a new stove - ILEVE - which is a better quality gas stove all round.
Bye for now

Pilot wont light.


Firstly make sure the gas knob is exactly in the pilot mode some are finiky and won't light unless in exactly the right postion. Make sure once lit when pushing down on the pilot knob that you hold it down long enough for the thermocouple to sense the pilot. Barring both of those the most likley culprit is the thermocouple itself is faulty and can easily be removed usally with a couple of screws and a small adjustable wrench.

Gas ove will not stay lighting


Hi there you need to change the ffd on your oven FFd stands for flame faliure device. its like an temperature controlled switch. it is located in the oven and this device is what lets the gas go through once it has reached a certain temp. It must only be done by a corgi qualified engineer and to be honest your loooking at about 100 pounds.
