Hello everyone. I am desperately in search of a safety system (valve & pilot) for our Caloric Ultramatic oven. The stove top is already equipped with pilots, however the oven is not. This creates a problem because pilots are required in Massachusetts and, therefore, we cannot get our gas turned on to the stove. The stove is in amazing condition and I really don't want to part with it. I have looked into retrofitting it but I wonder if there may be a more inexpensive option. Does any one have any suggestions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

**I am desperately in search of a safety system (valve & pilot) for our Caloric Ultramatic oven.**

Model# is ?

Some model# helps.

**The stove top is already equipped with pilots, however the oven is not.**

What is the oven?....a hot surface ignitor?

**This creates a problem because pilots are required in Massachusetts and, therefore, we cannot get our gas turned on to the stove.**

They -only- allow ranges with pilot lights?????? That would mean none of the new ranges built in the last 10 years could be installed as most have electric ignition now.

**I have looked into retrofitting it but I wonder if there may be a more inexpensive option**

I'd be double checking that gas code for your state!!

Ooops! maybe I should clarify. We just bought a new house in which there was a caloric stove(gas stove, c. 50's, model #s9627 UXB, serial #A6080) . When the gas company came to turn on the stove they said that they couldn't until we had a safety system put in the oven (because its against Mass. code for gas ovens to be lit by a match. At the moment we cannot use the oven(the gas has been shut off to it), but if we were to we would have to light it with a match in order to ignite it. Sorry, if it's a little incoherent. Thank you for the website I'm going to check it out. Does that make more sense?
