Question about DCS RGS-486GD Gas Kitchen Range

Oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on

The oven in a 36" gas DCS range does not turn on. All the other components including the top 4 burners, the top grill and the broiler function normally. I have been led to believe that the most likely problem is with a faulty oven igniter. The unit is about 9 years old and predates the Fisher-Paykel takeover. In trying to get any information one is directed to deal with a toll-free number that gets you to Brisbane, Australia! Any ideas about the solution and if it is an igniter problem what is the most efficient and economical way of getting a replacement unit to Canada. Thank you jdv

Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.

You didn't state whether you used a DCS conversion kit or not. I was able to find conversion instructions for a model similar to yours (not an exact match) but it will give you an idea as to what all is involved.

DCS gas oven and broiler that pulses


This sounds a lot like a defective pressure regulator. If you do not have one externally connected, then the internal regulator is faulty. If internal, it shouldn't be too difficult to DIY. Just make sure the pressure rating is the same as the one that has failed.

You might need a new thermocouple. The thermocouple tells the oven that the pilot is lit and that it is ok to let gas into the oven. It is the metal rod that is connected to the pilot. They are fairly cheap and easy to install.

Broiler doesn't lite, no gas going to pilot


Most cases Broiler ignitor is out, after you turn on the Broiler, check the voltage on Broiler ignitor 2 wires, if you have approx. 110v, then change the ignitor, but you don't have 110v, then check Broiler safety valve and oven thermostat, but 90% of the time is the Broiler ignitor. Have fun.

OVEN WON'T STAY LITE MOST OF TIME & DOESN'T HEAT WELL:


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame—either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Many new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners f, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.

have nice time..!! arte the solution!!

DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat


This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

DCS Range constant sparking at all burners even when lighting one


This happens to mine if there is anything on any of the burners, such as food residue or moisture. Check all the burners to see that nothing is touching the burner area where the gas jets are. Even a little water can make this happen.
