Have you changed your door latch wax motor yet... If you have the brown actuator pin then you want to chuck that wax motor out of there quicker than spit! You want the redesigned wax motor with the black actuator pin. I know of folks where the wax motor failure caused the timer and /or water valves to act up... See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

Sounds like you have a oven probe or (if equipped) computer issue. From the looks of it, you dont have a computer on this model, so you probably have a thermostat stuck somewhere in there. The thermostat closes at the set temp, then opens when the unit cools. Sounds like this one is stuck in the closed position, allowing the fan to run all the time. You will have to look and see if you have a wiring diagram on the back of the unit, then find the fan wires and see which thermostat controls it. If no diagram, follow the wires out of the fan and see if on runs to a thermostat. Good luck and let me know if you need further info.

Honey! It's broke. You can manuever the little black valves out, but you will only find the hole in the clean water tank. I have the EXACT same problem. My advise to you is to take the valves, caps and handle off, sell them on EBAY and then buy you a whole new clean water tank.

This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.
Good Luck, Phil

This is a common safety feature, and is based upon the main gas valve inside the appliance. It regulates only a tiny ammount of gas through when closed - enough to light a pilot. This should then heat a component high enough to trigger the main gas valve and light the main burner.
With the door fully open. Turn on the oven and watch the pilot ignite FROM THE OUTSIDE. Look to see that it is heating what looks like a small wire in the flame. If it is not. Turn it off and let it cool.
You need to adjust this into the path of the flame just by bending it a little. Then try again.
If you cannot, or adjustment doesn't work,then you really need a replacement main gas valve - which is a registered appliance specialist job I'm afraid. Don't take chances with gas appliances.
Thank you for using Fixya.
