Unique Oven Pilot Light Problem

Recently took possession of Rockwood 2612WS, second trip out with her the DW going to bake some Cinnamon rolls for breakfast. After spending a frustrating 45 minutes attempting to light the oven Pilot light gave up. Didn't have any problem getting it to light but after releasing the oven knob it would slowly go out.

During the PDI it worked, but now what the heck! Well after getting home spent some time fiddling with it I discovered the oven knob is the cause. Fits to close to the stoves front face plate, once I removed the knob, after moving it to the Pilot setting, I pushed in on the metal stem, felt a positive click, and the pilot light worked, it stayed lit.

The short term fix I partially filled the hollow stem on the back of the oven knob with bit of paper, need to contact the oven manufacture see what they have to say about this, also contact the dealer see if they have heard of this problem.

Anybody here experienced this and if so how did you fix it?

Only an opinion. During shipping the knob side got bumped too hard and bent the valve/valve mount causing the issue. In the end it might be less painful to “straighten” if possible. I as you probably will, would wait on the manufacturer for a remedy. Keep us posted.

Hmmm. Second thought. If it’s like mine there might be damage not patchable. I took a pic of mine.

Figured out what the problem was. Found it was a bent, rather not properly bent tab, on the oven face plate, see picture. The red oval shows what caused the problem, this was too straight, put a pair of needle nose vice grips to it and bent the tab to match the one one the left side.
This pulled the face plate closer to the valve allowing enough travel of the oven knob, green circle, to engage the safety switch, yellow circle. Works great now, actually easier, pilot ignites quicker and I don't have to hold the knob in as long to get the pilot to stay lit.
Thanks iwannacamp, your picture got me pointed in the right direction and I was able to figure it out.

Hmmm, I didn't know that if you pushed in the knob enough, there was a safety that engaged to allow lighting the pilot! I've just been holding the knob in and as soon as the pilot lit, I turned on the oven...
We tend to shut the oven down completely after use.

Benefits of following info on this forum!
