If you watch the pilot flame when the thermostat is turned on, does it get bigger or stay the same size?
Okay, so that tells us that the issue is likely with the thermostat, not the oven valve. If you turn the thermostat on and tap the pilot area with a screwdriver, does the flame still stay small?
Thank you! We need to find you a new thermostat. Of course, the original one is no longer available, so we may need to look at a universal one. Are you comfortable making some modifications and working with gas?
Excellent! Can you post a picture of the thermostat you have?
Once the top is raised, there should be screws to remove the control cover panel.
Are there screws under the panel, above the oven opening?
Yeah, they can be difficult to get off after being in place for so long.
Any other markings? Did you find the model you originally posted on a tag with the serial number or is there another tag under the main top with another model number on it?
Any other model number markings that I can help use to get an idea of the co0ntrol system used?
I understand, thank you. Let me know what you find. Have a great rest of your weekend!
I appreciate that, thank you! We will work through this until we get to a solution!
So the thermostat is likely faulty then. Any more numbers seen on it at all?
Without knowing what control system it has, I can't tell you much of anything.
