Propane oven question

7 posts in this topic

I've got a small propane range at the shack and the oven doesn't work. The pilot works fine, and if you light it on broil the main burner burns, but if you put the thermostat in the bake temperature range, the main burner goes out and doesn't re-ignite.

At first I though it was the thermostat, but now think there's something plugging up the temperature control valve. I'd like to take the valve apart and clean it, but there doesn't seem to be a good time to do it.

Any suggestions?

possibly thermostat. without seeing it tough to say...some of the older ovens had a hydraulic oven safety valve..when turned on the pilot would get larger and heat a metal bulb.. the bulb was attached to a line that went back to the valve, once heated it would open the valve and allow gas to the burner..id take a look at the pilot..see what it looks like..may possibly luck out and its just corroded or something...otherwise your probly better off scrapping it..you could get a new stove for not much more than trying to repair.....

I think the range was made in the '80's, so it's not that old. The pilot doesn't flare up when you switch to oven mode, but does ignite the main burner when you turn it to broil.

I'd just go out and get a new stove, but it's a small apartment sized range for a small shack, and they're hard to come by.

If it is just the thermostat, any idea where I could get one? It seems like the kind of part that should be available and easy to replace, but I've been looking in hardware and fleet type stores and can't find one.

Get the brand and model number. Then do a search for a parts and repair center.

Check Dey Distributing. They have stores in MN or online. They carry tons of furnace, range, grill and appliance parts. I got some knobs from a really old gas range from them.

I've got a small gas range with some issues. It's a Tappan 30 series gas range. The burners work fine, it's the oven that's not working properly. I'll turn it on, and the pilot will light, but the gas won't come on. If I shut it off, the pilot goes out. What do you guys think? Thermocouple? Thermostat?

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
