View Full Version : Home Range

05-05-2009, 03:21 PM
Okay, so my oven didn't work for shet since I moved in the house over a year ago. It's about 15 years old, but never used. My buddy came over and flipped the valve that feeds into the back of the oven. It was set for propane, but was on natural gas setting (whatever, it was backward). Anyhow, that fixed the problem. All the burners fired up high and the oven got up to about 500 degrees. Problem is, since that day it has never gone past 250 degrees. Any ideas?

Didju try turnin duh nobb to duh bigger nombers ? Might be the temp probe inside the oven or the thermostatic controller - my first guess

Yeah, I've turned it all the way many times.

The probe would be that wire with the bulb thingy on the end , on the top of the oven (inside)

Ah, I think I know what you are talking about. I will investigate it this weekend a bit. Wife is trying to get me to buy a whole new deal. I'm like, it's still brand new looking. HA

So my mom came to visit and decided she was going to buy us a new range.

Here it is:

The bad news is I still need to figure out the problem with the old one!

I am going to use it to cook parts (powder coat) outside.

That is a cool lookn unit there ! Yeah , would be great for powder coating !

Yeah, I just installed a new hood (thing over the top of the stove) that is all steel colored. So this oven should match it pretty nice. Now I need to get a frig to match. A nice frig is freakin expensive too! That is not going to be for a long time.

There ya go Dom!!

Your powder coating oven issue has been solved!!!

Good deal!!

Eastwood Company sells some great oven bake products for your parts. If it can fit in the oven.....it can be coated!!!!


WAKE AND BAKE!!!! :cool:

Mom ended up doing the okiedok on me and purchased a better one.

Pretty much the same, but has a fish burner deal in the top center.


Looks like they used the same default image of the other oven, but this new one has five burners on the top.

You can see the five burner configuration here, the write-up is wrong but the picture is right.

I can't wait to start cooking shet in the old one outside. HA

So are you in business yet Dom??

Did ja get the oven?

Just think of all the things you can powder and porcelain coat!!! :rolleyes:

Lowes should be getting the oven in sometime next week. Then soon after they will be coming to install it. I still have to figure what the deal is with the current oven, once I get it outside. It is not getting past around 200 degrees. If need be I will get a new plate thingy for it. I am going to hook the whole unit up to a BBQ propane tank and start cooking shet. So, I would say I will be all setup by the begining-mid next month. You think it's okay to cook shet in my storage shed, or should I leave it outside?

My father uses his in the shop , just make sure the area is ventilated or door is open if you smell anything.
