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?

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
