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?

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
