None of the burners light, and the oven doesn't light.  The ignitors click fairly rapidly.  The burners won't light with a match either.

I purchased this used and its probably old, but it worked at the previous owner's place.  It's been about three months since I bought it and I'm just now hooking it up.

I was thinking that something is clogged with debris so it's not letting enough gas get to where it needs to go?  There is a little metal part , that I think has a diaphram in it, right where the gas line connects in the range - I think it says Maxidol on it or something.  Could this be clogged?

 With the gas hose disconnected, I can smell gas in the gas line.

Please help !!!

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,  Im not sure because there is no model number,  but see if there is a shut off near the safety valve.   Take the bottom drawer out...look back there.   It would look like a pressure relief valve on a water heater only much smaller.   This could of snapped shut during your move if there is one.  Some are on the back of the unit....you would find it somewhere on the gas line on the oven itself...Ron

Ok, I was wondering if it might have one.  I looked around the burners for one, but I didn't check down by the oven area.

I'll check that tonight - thanks.

Matt

Now that I think about it more, there was a valve on the gas line near the front left burner.  It was open.  Is this the one you are talking about?  Or may there be another valve later on in the gas line?

Also, to help define the age a little better, the range has an analog clock and timer.

Thanks,

Matt

You might see if some dirt daubers built a mud nest in the gas lines, this happens when items are left unused for awhile.  Start by taking the gas lines loose and see if you can blow thru them, where you cannot you might find the clog, if there is one.

Ok, I'll try blowing through the lines.  I looked for a valve last night, and the only one on the gas line in the until was the one I specified earlier.

The model number is:  30-2032-23

Serial # is:  07088-85137263

I blew through the lines and it still didn't work.  Is it possible that there isn't enough gas getting to the range from the gas main?

The gas bolier runs fine, and the gas water heater runs fine, but I don't hear gas streaming out of the gas line by the range when it is disconnected.  Am I supposed to be able to hear it coming out of the gas line when it is disconnected from the range?

Thanks!

Goodness, yes, hear and smell!!!  Bet there is something wrong with the gas service line to the range.
