Hello, all. I am going to hijack this thread a little. I have a 1990 Hitchhiker with a Wedgewood oven/range. Does this oven have a thermocouple in the pilot? I am not seeing it, at least seeing what looks like a standard thermo-coupler to me. I would love to light and leave the pilot but am somewhat superstitious.
I also have similar problem.I have a Suburban range(I don't know if it is the same as the Magic Chef)
My problem is, the pilot lights,but with a very small flame,it doesn't touch the probe.The LP pressure is good,tried adjusting the small screw,it is at max.,made sure the knob goes all the way in,no kinks in tubing,took pilot assembly apart and cleaned.
Somewhere I read that when the knob is turned up the pilot becomes larger and causes the burner to go on.What would be the defective part?
I would appreciate your help,the stove works good ,and I don't want to replace it. Thanks
