....and I bet any local propane distributor will be happy to give you a smear too. They use it all the time on tank valves. Propane is dry by nature. They squeak and seize. (I don't know nothing...........)

Removed the two screws and even the centre screw but was unable to able to apply grease. I even tried a bit of WD40 to try and remove centre but without any luck. It seems to be really stuck in there.

The valve is a tapered cone sealed with grease. If you have removed the screws and steel cap retaining the index ring and spring, and the cone will not come out, try applying a little heat on the body to expand it and try pulling the cone out then. I just can not imagine that it has gotten that stuck with out some other damage visible. The center screw you removed is the low fire adjustment, once you get the cone unstuck and greased and reassembled, you will have to readjust the low fire setting.

An RV tech told us it was excessive heat from using a large pot on the front burner that probably seized the valve. The centre screw was screwed in tightly before I unscrewed it so I don't believe I will have to readjust it when putting it back in. I will try to heat up the valve and see if I can pull out the centre and will let you know the results.

Sorry for the delay in replying. Unfortunately it did not work. Valve is still seized. There was one burner valve (161190) that might fit the bill but the majority of RV techs told me it would not fit yet it looked exactly like the one I had. I will probably have to bite the bullet and buy the whole manifold kit.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help me with this. I did bite the bullet and bought the manifold. I took off the part I needed and installed it on the stove and everything works fine now. I will keep the rest as spare parts in case something else goes wrong. Again, thank you.

Marcel, I have the same model oven as you and think that my oven thermostat control is bad because there is no gas going to the pilot light, even after checking all of the lines. The burners work fine. How much would you want for it?
