Oven gas line broken
Anbody experience this problem. When attempting to light the gas pilot in the Maytag oven of my 2001 Safari, yellow flames started shooting out in my direction...not a fun experience. It had worked fine the last time I used the oven. Upon close inspection, I discovered that the 1/8-inch gas line which comes out of a hole in the back of the oven and connects to the pilot light assembly was broken off at the back of the pilot light assembly (a compression fitting). To fix this, I removed the compression nut, bought a new 1/8-inch compression sleeve and reconnected the line (there was enough play in the line to make the reconnection). This seems to have fixed the problem. Has anybody else experienced a break in this thin gas line at the pilot light connection? I don't store anything in the oven which could bounce around while underway and cause the break, so I can only assume the connection was overstressed when assembled at the factory.
