Gas cooker thermostat


J

Jim Scott

My gas cooker is running about two numbers too cool ie I have to set it at
mark 6 to achieve mark 4 temperatures. I have lost the handbook, but even
if I hadn't I doubt whether it would tell me how to adjust the themostat.
Is this a job I could do or do I just have to recalibrate it. It is a
modern Stoves Newhome with double oven.

Has it fallen off, or out of, its little metal clips at the top of the oven?
If it has, then clip it back in.

If it's a fan oven check the fan is running at it's proper speed.

A fan would blow the gas out. :) Although I have seen gas ovens with an
external circulating fan and duct systems.

Not the one I had BTW, though it was made by Stoves, that was 2
ovens ago. :-(

It had a burner along the bottom at the back of the oven, and a
circulating fan behind a baffle that formed the back of the oven,
just like an electric fan oven.

The one with the bad temperature control was electric. The temp
sensor was just over the fan & it's circular element. In the end
the fan got slow & hesitant to start.

No, it's still there at the front. I wasn't sure whether that was a
thermostat or just a sensor for the ducted fan behind the cooker, which
blows air between the door glasses to keep the outer skin cool and the
knobs from melting. I expected a gas thermostat to be some kind of
mechanical regulator to control the gas flow.

Not the one that controls the fan, but the 'stat on the flame burner unit.
On a Stoves appliances, this 'stat is usually incorporated with the flame
burner unit.

So i take it I'll have to go in with a mirror as the flame burner unit is
behind a metal 'screen', well a bent up part of the base.

That's the one. And that's the best way to inspect it as well. Someone
walking in on you while your head is in the oven, just don't look right, eh?

The book answer is to contact the manufacturers, they may require that the
part is replaced or there may be an adjustment.

I did, and they told me that it *is* adjustable, but they won't tell me how
'cos I'm not a Corgi.

An educated guess can be made if you post some useful pictures.
