I have a Force 10 stove-less than 6 months old---Can ignite the oven but once I release the nob to set the temp the gas goes off. Need a fix

Re: force 10 stove

How long do you hold it in after lighting you have to hold it in for a while to let it heat up or something like that - - admiral says you have to hold the blue thingy in

just our thoughts and opinions

Re: force 10 stove

Was it working before? ...probably bad thermocouple....Are you holding the knob in/on long enough for thermocouple to heat up...5-7 seconds before adjusting oven temp?

Re: force 10 stove

Make sure you are following the instructions. Has it had this problem from the beginning or did it just start?

There is a thermocouple that detects the flame and shuts off the gas if the flame is out. This is an important safety feature. Sometimes it gets bent out of the flame and can not detect it and sometimes it fails.

If it's not just user error or the thermocouple is bent, you should probably contact the manufacturer or hire a local gas stove specialist.

Re: force 10 stove

For the oven one must push the button in and hold it much longer than that for the top burners before releasing it watching the sea that the train stays on if the flame starts to go out to push it in very quickly and hold it a little longer until the flame holds could be as long as 20 seconds

Re: force 10 stove

either thermocouple or the little coil in the valve is defective. little coil probably not available as spare, need new valve
