Merry Christmas everyone! This sure isn't the post I had planned on...but just as I got ready to make a yummy coffee cake for my special holiday breakfast, my oven decided to quit on me! It's gas, hooked up to PG&E; the burners and oven pilot light work but the oven will not turn on. Any suggestions? It usually takes ~5 minutes for the oven to light, but it's been on an hour. Well after 2 or 3 hours the oven finally came on. So now my question is, why does it take SO long for natural gas to go through the pipe? I had not used the oven for a few days and it's been cold (not that cold, just the low 30's at night but 60's during the day). I used to have that problem with the wall heater, but after the thermostat was changed it improved, although I'm careful to fire it up as cool weather approaches so I won't be stuck on a cold day. Still, sometimes in the morning it can take nearly an hour to turn on, and it has a pilot light too. I'd love to know why this happens! I've never had this problem with any other house.
