hi our oven isn't working this season, we light the gas as normal but after 10-20 seconds the flame doesn't increase to heat the oven as it did last year, it looks like there is a sensor just above the burner in the flame and another one located in the top of the oven leading to the oven control knob, can anyone advise what the problem could be please?
The sensor in the flame is the thermocouple, which when heated, keeps the gas valve open allowing the flame to remain alight. The other sensor is the regulo which controls the flame height according to the setting on the control knob. The most likely cause of the problem would appear to be a faulty regulo control.
