Thank you for this excellent blog.
My problem: an oven that does not heat.
The oven/range: O'Keefe and Merritt c.1980
What it does do: When I turn the oven knob, MOST of the time, I hear a 'click' and a second later the ignitor/glowing 'pilot' device comes on. That's it. No heating going on.
Learned: T-stat no longer available and no replacement. Valve is $162.25 and not in stock. And the kicker - I'm told that this model had a pilot, not ignitor, so there is no ignitor to buy if it is the ignitor.
Lead up: erratic baking experiences.
I thought it was the thermostat, but if I am hearing the click and it is igniting, it appears the thermostat is okay.
In any case, I am told by Poletski's the Eureka, Ca appliance repair center that the t-stat for this oven is no longer available and there is no substitute/generic part available.
I have not inquired about the ignitor or bimetal valve yet.
I do not have an amp meter designed to go around something...and it's not clear to me from the diagram where I would put it around, unless you mean to indicate around the whole section of tube/valve area?

I can't find anything with the model number you supplied-- it's probably been deleted from the database.

Like I told you, I'm sure you have an ignitor problem --- everything you have said so far points in that direction.
Like I told you, I have the ignitor you need--- New $40.00, Used $15.00 and If you want me to come and verify and install for you offer still stands as to what I already offered to you.
Did you by chance maybe lose my email that I sent to you and/or my phone#???
If so, fill free to call: 442-0647 or reply back here if you want me to send the copy of the last email to you.
I left 2 or 3 messages on the phone# you gave me and you never got back to me so I assumed you had this taken care of.
