I have never seen a force 10 oven work
right, so I read the manual and need some input on a problem I have.
Our 2004-era Force10 2-burn stove/oven combo only works ok on the stove
. Except electric
ignition - that seems to fire about once a year, randomly. I have replaced the battery
and checked the connections. All seems fine. I've just given up on that and start it with a lighter.
and broiler is a whole other thing - unusable. The broiler runs for about a minute, then with a foop, the flame disappears and a high gurgling sound starts coming out of the burner. No heat. Applying a lighter, does not light.
After some time, I believe the safety
thermocouple closes and then small propane
gas POOF, and it's stopped.
The regular oven burner experiences similar trouble.
on the system is quite old and corroded, so I am targeting this for replacement, and then I will see if I can find 2004-era parts
and replace the burners.
Thoughts welcome, I don't know how well these stoves age, but I see no reason to toss it and replace when they are such simple things.
Particularly appreciate references
for 2004-era parts
. Should I try to get the electric
ignition working? Is it needed for any part of the oven's operation after it's been lit?
