The gas flame in my bottom oven takes a few goes before

This answer was rated:

The gas flame in my bottom oven takes a few goes before lighting up (for the flame to stay on), and after a few minutes will turn itself off. There is a gas smell when it happens, but the 'noise' of the gas being on stops.
JA: What's the brand and model of your oven? How old is it?
Customer: Model PROP60NGFSS/C Type: DG66E4123k66CO
JA: How long has this been going on with your oven? What have you tried so far?
Customer: a few years old and out of warranty
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: It has been going on for several months, we have just put up with it. But it means we cannot leave something to cook, because the oven might stop and not cook the food

Good morning and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Rangemaster cooker.

Please allow few minutes while I check its schematics and then type the answer.

I am afraid, this indicates a fault with the thermocouple that will need replacement.

As this is a gas appliance, it is recommended that repair is done only by gas safe certified engineer.

Alternatively, you may call Rangemaster at 01926 457628 to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

I hope I was able to answer your question.

If you would like to ask me another question in the future, you can add me as a favorite Expert.

You'll have the option to do that on your "My Questions" page if you choose to rate our interaction or you can request me by name if you wish.

Have a wonderful day.

another question, can I have a part number for a range master thermocouple that will fit my oven model?

I am afraid, I do not have the part number as it is no longer available on Rangemaster spares.

However, you may click here to order the part. 

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
