Brown Oven no model number heating issue

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any experience with these. Made by Brown not the color brown :woot:  

 

Getting complaint that oven gets up to temp and then slowly drops temp.

 

It seems that after this oven gets to temp it shuts off main gas and then has a small steady flow of gas to maintain heat.  Or should it not?

Brown Stove works co bas been around for quite a while http://www.brownstoveworksinc.com/ . You can find user manuals at their site with troubleshooting info as well as electical diagrams of their gas ranges.

Although not familiar with the brand, I would say there appears to be nothing unusual about them. Therefore likely suspects are ignitor, safety valve and/or gas lines.

Brown manufactures mostly 20" and 24" electric or gas ranges.  These ranges may also sell under the Amana or Holiday brand name.  Very basic.  If the unit initially heats to temperature but doesn't cycle properly afterwards usually point to the mechanical thermostat.

mechanical thermostat..... lol, too obvious! You beat Reg to the punch and I'm sure he'd be doing the whistling thing at me.

Being a Brown, must likely not a glow bar model, (they do make them I'm pretty sure but most of the Browns I've ever seen are standing pilot or spark module ignition for oven and surface burners).

 

Most also use the modulating oven t-stat, (once it is lit the main burner stays on the complete cooking cycle but just modulates down to a low flame setting when temp is reached - they usually have low setting orifice in the t-stat for the low by-pass flame).
