Did a oven test set it to 180 I put a thermometer into the oven the temp read 180 so it was spot on

Just cooked my first roast with it turned out perfect
I got a great deal on it as it was a factory second had a minor dent on side it can not bee seen when installed
Wok burner is now Lighting using Electronic Ignition.
Great gas oven
We bought this gas oven for our kitchen . . And it is a great gas oven . . The oven itself cooks foods cakes breads meat very nicely.. easy to adjust the temperature and the burners are very easy to light with push button ignition . Lots of space on the cooktop and easy to clean
Gas cooking with lots of space
This is a great gas oven. The cast iron burners are very durable. Lots of space on the cooktop and can use all burners at once easily. Food cooks evenly and quickly.
My only changes in design would be: make the grill tray easier to remove/ more space and have a temperature gauge on the oven so you know when it has preheated. I would also prefer a different style of oven timer.

Exactly what I wanted
I bought this stove for a small holiday cabin, and particularly wanted all gas because of a limited power supply. The cooktop burners are easy to light with push button ignition, and were adjusted for low simmer from the factory. The trivets are very sturdy and easy to remove for cleaning. Christmas turkey, as well as cakes, are perfectly cooked in the fan forced oven. I have two older but similar Westinghouse stoves with electric grill in rental properties. The only problems have been a failed switch for a grill, and damaged knobs probably caused by improper use. I certainly would recommend this stove based on my experience so far.
I bought the stove from Appliances Online - very easy, prompt delivery and install. The installer removed the old unit and installed the new one effortlessly up the back stairs of our elevated Queenslander. I had organised the electrical GPO prior. He checked for gas leaks, checked each burners operation and starting, and gave me a run down on the safety features - the main being flame fail safety shut-off on each burner. He gave me the certificate of compliance with Aust Gas Reg. It took a few goes to get used to holding in the knob for a few...seconds after ignition - I guess that's the thermocouple heating up (linked to safety device). We used the oven today - all good - no handles heating. Overall the design seems good to me - excellent really. The mech timer is probably more durable than an electronic - they've been around forever. I did notice the bottom and top of the seal does not fit tightly in the recess, I expect it should. It appears to get pushed in when the door gets closed. I tried pushing it in gently with a smooth object but it won't stay in - I'll see how it goes.
Update on review dated 6th Nov 2016
Well, big revelation for me and heads up to everyone else that has reviewed gas stoves in general and complained of lack of simmer options.
Make sure your installer regulates/sets the burners/jets on installation!
After speaking to my local Westinghouse dealer about how disappointed I was with the lack of simmer option, I was told that all the burners should have an easily discernable high and low flame, so we asked the installer to come back and check the burners. He made some adjustments to the screws inside the front panel above the ...
