Wall oven broiler not firing up all the way! Gaffers & Sattler


Hello,
We have an old 1973 Keywest Mobile Home with a 1972 GAS Gaffers & Sattler Wall Oven/Broiler (model R922-4) that the broiler valves are not opening up all the way and the flame is less than desirable.


There is a pilot light,and the oven seems to be operating fine,but when we turn on the broiler,the oven flame stays the same.



I don't know if I could try to repair this myself, or even open any screws up more to allow more heat, I don't think the thermo coulple is out, because we do get a pilot light.....Given the age I should just replace it. It's very difficult to find replacement wall oven for this mobile home.
Thank you for any help! James

Wall oven broiler not firing up all the way! Gaffers & Sattler


How did you find the model number? I have a similar 1973 Fleetwood home with a Gaffers & Sattler Double Wall Oven/Broiler. Where on this unit is the model number? It has the Eloquence name on the front control panel. Do I have to remove the oven from the wall to access the model# & serial#?

Since it's only the broiler.. It could be something as simple as a partially blocked blocked orfice or burner..
