Modernaire Stove/Oven

Just restored a 1962 Mobile Scout camper. It has everything back to original. The oven would not shut off after lighting. I took off the knob and removed the two adjustment jets and cleaned. Still does not seem to operate property. Think it is how I am adjusting the jets. Any suggestions as to proper way to position the two? Thanks

Is it the oven burner that won't shut off, or a pilot light that won't shut off?

If it's the pilot, there should be a small screw either behind the oven knob or on the pilot itself to shut it off.

If it's the oven burner, I can't answer your question other than to say you need to find out why it's still getting gas if the oven knob/valve is shut off. The 50+ year old control valve is very likely the culprit. Depending on how mechanically skilled you are, you might be able to rebuild it. If you restored the camper yourself, I suspect you have the skill.

Thanks. Think I have it. Removed the two screws/jets behind the knob. Cleaned with wd40 and a pipe cleaner. Oven now seems to work properly. One of the screws adjusts the pilot light flame height. The second activates/adjusts almost like a second stage pilot. Sequence: pilot light, second flame lights (about 1" row of holes) then oven lights. After turning off everything now shuts down except the pilot.
