Top oven wont stay alight

Leisure GR6GV-MK2 Double oven (bought in Aug 2011) will light no problem but cuts out after a couple of minutes. I have checked the position of the thremocouple and it is sitting in the flame fine and i understand that if the temp sensed is not sufficient the gas will be switched off because the applience thinks the flame has gone out. I have read some posts that say there is a design issue around the amount of heat insulation so stops the air supply but this wouldnt make the temperature at the thermo to low to stop from being switched off. The flame is Blue and not yellow so would indicate the mix is ok so i am thinking its the sensor its self or the position. Thsi problem was there from day one and we should have raised it then but didnt so i am now looking to resolve the problem if anyone can help. Thanks

Seems the Thermocouple (instrument that lets the oven know the gas is lit) is not working properly. Your ignitor is working thus allowing the gas to burn...but the heat is not moving down the thermo line to register as being lit. Thus the oven thinks gas is being pumped but not burning and turns off as a safety precaution. THere must be a thermostat sensor...usually a wire or tube that allows the heat from the burning flame travel towards a sensor...this is faulty...remove and replace.

The fault is either the capillary has fallen away from back or it is a faulty thermostat.

It sounds exactly the same as I am experiencing on my oven of the same model. My theory is that the full flame gas is controlled by a thermostat, and that this has broken hence why the oven only stays on preheat. This will be a matter of a replacement part. Most likely the thermostat is a bi-metal strip that, because it has heated and cooled so many times in it's life it has simply finally given up. Try searching online for the correct part and get a corgi registered fitter or another suitably qualified fitter to come and replace it.

You probably tripped a safety thermostat in the back of each oven. If you turn off the breaker and find a way to pull the units out you could probably remove the rear panel and reset the thermostat by pushing in a button on the back of the open thermo. Some thermo's aren't resettable though so you'd have to buy a replacement.

Is there an adjustment to have pilot light stay on after given length if time. Our rev oven pilot takes longer then one minute. About 1 1/2 min


No it is a safety feature that the pilot has to heat up the thermocouple to assure the main gas valve that the pilot is alight and hot.

Westinghouse oven LPG 527 wont stay alight and grill wont start


Normally the grill is completely separate to the oven. Press the ignitor before you turn on the grill, as, to ignite, oxygen needs to be present (ie: not flooded with gas) . and you should be able to see the spark from the ignitor in the grill. if you can't, then you may have problems with your ignition pack or ignition leads.
