Customer Question

Flavel: FSG51, I am having issues with the gas flow into the oven. The hobs and grill are working fine, however the oven is not lighting. I can use a match to get something alight in the oven but it gives the impression something is blocked. I have recently used "oven pride" to clean the oven and since then it has been having issues. can you advise?

Hi sorry to hear that.
What likely happened is a clog where the pilot is supposed to burn.
Its a soap like clog, they don't usually go away on their own.
But we can help you with this.
Please let me know if your oven clicks when it is supposed to light?
Or did it used to do that?
Thank you

I get the click when trying to light, although i cannot hear the gas as i used too.

Thanks Joseph, But it will light with a match? You need to look really good at the holes near the igniter also that the spark igniter is close enough to the gas valve(thermocouple). If you can clear that you may need a new thermocouple but we will cross that bridge if it comes to that. Likely its just clogged is all. I will stick with you until this is fixed but Since this question may continue for some time, if you will rate my service as good or better before you close this window, the system here will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you so your question won't close or time out and you can contact me anytime at no additional cost. Thank you Tech Michael
