Oven Repairs Summary

Oven door bangs open when the oven burner is ignited. The door flies open when a mini explosion occurs due to gas build up caused by delayed ignition. This is almost always a sure sign of a dirty ignition tube. The burner tube through which the the flame flows from the pilot has been plugged. You will find that this tube has a little end piece with a hole in it. This piece can be removed and cleaned. You will notice that the burner tube also has a slit in it which goes from one side of the tube to the other-. This slit allows the gas to burn on both sides of the, burner tube. You can clean this slit with a razor blade, allowing the gas to escape and burn evenly.

PROBLEM: The tube is clean and the oven burner still is not igniting properly.

If the oven still is not igniting properly, you may have to replace the oven safety valve. This is one of the most common failures on a gas stove. The oven safety valve is mounted inside and against the back wall in your oven. The oven safety valve contains an orifice which feeds gas to the burner tube. The burner tube leads to it and joins into it. The first thing to do is to check to see any lose electric wires attached to the safety valve. If there are no wires, you have a mercury operating valve. You will see that it contains a small tube leading from it to the pilot flame. Make certain that tube has not fallen out of its holder, and that the pilot flame engulfs the end of the tube when the pilot is turned on. If you see that the tube has fallen out of its holder, you should be able to put it back into position with no problem. To check to see if the safety valve is the problem, you will need a propane type cigarette lighter. Turn the oven thermostat up to 300° F. You will notice the pilot flame becomes larger. This additional flame and heat should expand the mercury in the small tube and open the safety valve allowing gas to flow into the burner tube. If it doesn’t, add the flame of your cigarette lighter to the extend pilot flame. This additional flame and heat should expand the Mercury in the small tube and open the safety valve allowing gas to How into burner. If the burner ignites, change the oven safety Valve.

After you have removed the safety valve, tap the open end in the palm of your hand to make the mercury beads show themselves. If you can see the beads, it is another sign the safety valve has to be replaced. You can pick up the safety valve in the parts department your favorite appliance store. Replacing the safety valve is simple.

1. Shut off the gas supply to the range.

2. Remove the fitting from the end of the valve.

3. Look for three screws. Two hold the valve in place, and one small screw holds the mercury tube in its holder. Carefully unscrew the screws and lift out the old safety valve and replace it with the new.

4. Use care when positioning the new safety valve, that you do not break the end of the small capillary tube when placing it into its holder. Make sure that it is fitted properly, so that the pilot flame engulfs it.

Don’t just throw the old safety valve into the garbage. Mercury is a very hazardous contaminant and will harm the environment. Call city hall and find out where it should be taken for proper disposal.

Testimonials

A company that can fix both an AC and a dryer issue in the same visit, and be honest about the services needed?!?! Yes, it does exist.Lassaad came to take a look at an AC line issue that had previously shut down my system. The HVAC specialist from another company quoted me a $3,000 plus repair to replace all of the lines, but Lassaad showed me where it was only a vinyl line that was clogging, and did cleaning to clear it out. I appreciate that he took the time to show me what the issue was, and the visible before-and-after was quite noticeable--haven't had an issue since!He then took a look at my washer and found where a part was broken. He had the replacement part in his vehicle and was able to repair it in about a half hour.A few weeks later, the drum was making a horrible noise during the spin cycle, so I called Lassaad again. He was flexible accommodating a last-minute schedule change, and gracious when I was a few minutes late meeting him for my appointment window when I got held up in traffic during a heavy downpour. He checked the spin cycle, and diagnosed that it was working fine and that the likely culprit was overloading the machine. Guilty as charged--I put too many towels in my tiny washer. Next two loads didn't have any issue. He wouldn't even let me pay him for his time, even though I tried twice.Will definitely use DC Appliance Repair Service in the future--highly recommend!

"Our pilot wouldn't light during a cold freeze. It isn't unusual to have the pilot go out but it was awful not being able to get it lit again. We might as well have been sleeping outside. Hubby checked Yelp for businesses near us.Even just having a conversation on the phone, we felt that we were getting honest information. When the problem was bigger than expected, more parts were ordered. The parts arrived in less than 2 days. Our appliances are old. We were thrilled that replacement parts were found.I decided that I wasn't bothered when work calls were answered while my pilot was being fixed. After all, our first SOS call was probably answered while another customer was getting something repaired.When the pilot was causing issues and I was paranoid about the house exploding when I smelled gas, three visits were made in one day. We have heat. The pilot was replaced and new equipment was used only when needed. I didn't feel overcharged.Our washing machine stopped working and that was also repaired on one of the visits to salvage our heater.You might have to make a reminder call to ask about the status of a part, but that seems due to this company having so much work that phone calls are a luxury.I'm happy that we found an honest person who knows a lot of things about household repairs..

Excellent service. Our dryer would turn on, but the drum would not tumble. I called mid-day Friday and they were able to come out the next day. The repair shop I used before said they would be unable to come out until early in the next week, so I jumped at next day service. I was given a time frame of 1-4 pm, and received a call at 3 that they were on their way. I had gone out to purchase a dryer belt since I suspected that was the issue, and when they came it was confirmed that the belt was itself nearly broken. Fortunately with new dryer belt in hand he was able to make a quick fix. Everything was a breeze and I definitely recommend.t.
