That looks like a flame switch to the left. The igniters light the main burner (looks like their is 2 of them top and right) then that flame sensor (left) sends back verification. Very sophisticated for an old stove. Must be made in canada. That flame switch is probably the blame. To test it remove it from the stove. Heat it with a torch and see if it had continuity. Never seen anythang like it before. Where are you?

Edit from looking at the oven control and them orange wires that dude must have a a pilot light. The igniter lights the pilot which in turn lights the main burner and that heats up the sensor to the left and that give continuity to the black box beneath oven control which is then fed to the main oven control? Using electronics to control the temp? Really kinda over engineered. Another Ralph Nader wonder. How does it judge temp in the oven? :2funny:

It's not an old stove - maybe 5 years old. I got it from a friend who bought it new and had hardly used it.

I'm going to look at it again as I try and get it to light to see what actually happens.

It actually is fairly good at controlling the temperature, but it has had the problem of where when you set the temperature to say 450, and then after it gets up to temp, if you turn the temp down to say 325, it won't relight when the temp drops down (this is on the oven burner which is in the bottom of the stove).

I usually heat it up to broil fish, for 5 minutes or so, with the oven - then put in the fish under the broiler and turn on on the upper (broiler) burner, and until recently, it always lights immediately and stayed lit.

What, where is the 'oven safety pilot' and could cleaning that solve this?

Oh yeah, and I'm in NYC.

I can get the use of a better camera tomorrow or Tuesday, probably.

<Have pics of the gas safety valve and the controls?>

I'm thinking you mean better pictures of the valve that's controlling the oven/broiler?  What I sent you earlier only better images?

If that's not it, where would it be?

Down in the bottom should be a Safety Valve of some sort.
