If it is a Flame Failure Device malfunction ( now termed Flame Supervision Device) then as long as you have a flame the FFD/FSD control will be over-ridden if you leave the oven on a high setting (say Gas Mark 7) for about 10/15 minutes. Any malfunction should temporarily correct itself and you will be able to cook safely at the correct temperature but this will probably be a requirement every time you want to use the oven. The FFD/FSD is a CORGI required component and therefore very important from a safety aspect so I called in a CORGI registered plumber to give me a quote. The quote was nearly as high as the cost of a new oven so I just bought a new oven with a warranty.

The flame failure device( FFD) may have malfunctioned,not allowing full volume of gas through to the burner.This is a safety feature, preventing full gas pressure to the oven straight away.

Main Oven will light and remain on, however there is no temp adjustment even after a time delay Model Parkinson Cowan SIG 454


The problem you have is this:

The FSD (Flame Safeguard Device) is faulty. This is what it does....

When you turn your oven on the FSD allows a small amount of gas through to the burner, the lit gas heats the FSD and says yay we have gas!, it then lets more gas through!

If it's broke it just keeps it on low flame.

You need to get a qualified Gas Engineer to look at it for you

I hope this helps

When foods come out burned, soggy, or unevenly baked, it generally means heat isn't being distributed evenly throughout the oven, it's escaping out the door, or the controls are out of adjustment. 1) Remove any aluminum foil from racks or the bottom of the oven.

2) Check the door gasket, and, if necessary, replace it.

3) Be sure nothing is obstructing the vent.

4) Reposition the oven racks so baking pans aren't too close to the heat sources.

5) Check your baking pans. If they're dark, they may be burning your food. Reduce the temperature by 25 degrees Fahrenheit when baking in dark metal or glass pans.

You can also recalibrate the controls. If your oven has calibration right on the knob, you can calibrate the appliance as follows. If it doesn't, call an appliance repairperson. To adjust the thermostat's calibration:

1) Remove the oven temperature knob by pulling it off its shaft.

2) Notice the current setting, and then move the pointer in either direction to adjust its temperature slightly up or down. It's intentionally difficult to move the pointer on some models; if this is the case, you'll have to remove a couple of screws. Figure that moving it one notch will change the setting by 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

3) For more accurate calibration, call an appliance repairperson.
