Oven Standing Pilot Light goes out after use

3 posts in this topic

Could use some help or suggestions with a Brown gas stove with a standing pilot. Stove operates fine with knob controlling gas to the burners.  However at the end of a cycle when the knob turns off the gas to the burners, the standing pilot stays lighted but then itself goes out within a few seconds.  Inititial pilot flame seems okay.  Not sure if the pilot assembly needs cleaning or a part needs replacing.   Thanks in advance for any suggestions.   tim

If possible, trace the pilot feeder liner back to control panel. If it goes into thermostat see if any adjustments are available. If it goes back into a connection at the manifold it should have and adjustment screw to adjust flame size.

 

Also, make sure oven safety is adjusted properly as they come often adjustable for LP or natural gas. If not adjusted properly it can snuff out the pilot during shut down, although this is unlikely in you case given that it only goes out after you turn oven control off.

 

Check for adjustments. If none clean pilot out the best you can with compressed air Do not alter the orifice size with a safety pin.
