Question about Rangemaster 110 (Gas) Kitchen Range
We have recently bought a secondhand Rangemaster 110, about 8 years old. As we are new to this we were surprised to see a gap at the back behind the left hand oven. We contacted Rangemaster and they said it was normal. However the oven seems to take forever to cook and the glass lid seems to get what I can only say is slightly hotter than warm. The top of the cooker (where you put the pots etc...) is very hot Can anyone shed any light on this for me please? Is the left hand oven used for slower cooking, simmering etc...and the right hand oven for faster cooking or is there a possible fault? Many thanks for your help....we love the cooker and just want to get it right. It is all gas. Jenners
If there is a low flame then the chances are the mercury flame protection device is broken. This is a safety device that protects the cooker from allowing full gas flow if the flame fails. However if the switch is broken then it won't allow full gas on to the burner. Hence a low level of burner which does not get very hot.

Hi Jenners We have a similar problem with a Rangemaster 110 all gas 2 years old - have had it for a while now. It seems to get stuck on "S" setting, and the flame won't go any higher - however, sometimes it works fine, so its an intermittant problem. So I don't think its a "bread warmer" - it should work as a proper oven (if the dial has settings 1 thru 9 on it, I'm pretty sure its supposed to be a proper oven. Not much help for now - sorry ! I'm trying to find the solution too - if I get anywhere, I'll let you know

Some older ovens did use one side just as a "bread warmer"...only way to tell for sure is to check if there is a burner below the left side

SOURCE: Left hand oven
The left hand oven needs a new flame failure device fitted , it is a normal oven not for slow cooking . This repair can only be carried out safely by a registered Gas Safe engineer . Visit WWW.gasSafeRegister.co.uk or ring freephone 0800 408 5500 to find one in your area.
