The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.
The whole top of the stove lifts off. You need to pull it out from the wall, unhook the gas, loosen and remove any screws that are on the back that hold the back to the top section. Open the stove doors and look up from the bottom to see if there are screws holding the top down, take those out and lift the top off. You can then access all the parts for the burners.
There is an adjustment for correcting the air mixture on the gas line going from the knob to the burner. It usually is located at the point where the adapter nozzle enters the gas line going to the burner.
Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, the igniter needs to be replaced. Good luck.
hi unplug pull out machine if drain hose is at bottom of machine get bucket put hose in to it water will flow out when full raise hose water will stop repeat untill empty if hose is not at bottom tilt machine so counter top holds it get pot what ever wil fit under the drain fliter unscrew slowly not all the way to let out water once pot is full tigheten repeat untill water is out then open fliter clean look in make sure notthing is wraped around impeller if so take apart and put back same way
Fill the bottom to the line with water. Put two cups of rice in the top and two cups of water. Put on stove top on high until lower water is boiling, turn to medium heat. For white rice check after about 20 minutes, if water is assorbed and rice is tender, fluff with a fork...eat. If it needs a few more minutes of cooking, no problem.
Brown rice will take about 45 minutes.
I have used my stove top cooker for at least 35 years...ordered it with box top and some money from Comet Rice.
For women from a woman's point of view: Most if not all the screws were hex head 1/4. Have appropriate tools. A socket set will work. I like my little cordless screw driver. You will also need wire strippers and two wire nuts, they say ceramic wire nuts and electrical tape. It is also a good idea to have a someone else there for safety sake. I tipped the stove back.
Take everything our of the oven. Take big screws out at the back bottom of oven. Lift bottom of oven and push toward the back of oven. (There is a lip at the front that oven floor slides unde). Be careful as there are sharp edges all over the place once this oven bottom is off. Next unscrew the screw at the front middle of oven that holds the long burner in place. Next pull the stove drawer out and set aside. Pull stove out just enought to put large juice cans under the front legs. Way at the back you will see where the burner comes down to the gas line. There are two screws holding it to the back of the stove, remove them. Next find the two wires that come from the igniter. Unplug them. Lift out the burner. Unscrew the two screws that hold the igniter on to the burner. Carefully put the new ignitor on the burner. If the new ends do not match the old ones or if they are shorter, cut the old ones off near the old ignitor. Cut the ends off the new ignitor as far from the ignitor as you can. Clean the ends off so that about a half inch of wire is bare. Put the old ends on the new wire so that you can plug them in. Hold the two like wires so that both bare wires are parallel and screw on the wire nut. Lay it parallel to one wire and wrap electrical tape around it so that it will not pull loose. Plug in the way it was originally. Put everything back together opposite of the way you took it apart.
