This thing is giving me fits. The oven wouldn't light, and I found the pilot assembly (the piece that deflects flame to the mercury bulb) to have melted. I replaced the pilot with part number 1802E068
per Brown's factory parts kat. In the process of replacing the pilot, I damaged the bulb on the gas valve. I ordered a new gas valve (not charging customer for this part), installed it, only to find the most tiny flame on the pilot possible. When I turn on the oven, the flame doesn't increase enough to hit the deflector and heat up the mercury bulb.
The unit runs on propane, and I'm wondering if there is a specific pilot assembly for LP or if the regular pilot is interchangeable? Have you ever had these issues? The customer says they have always had problems with the pilot.
Luckily this is a backup range for use when the power goes out, but I'm really looking like an amateur at this point.
