What is it? Identify the object. It is heavy for its size (2 lb), the housing is metal, the handle is wood, it has a SPST switch that makes a satisfying thunk and the electric motor runs and turns a threaded jawn inside the chrome nozzle-y looking thing. Marked Kenmore cat no 559 8392. Pics

It's in great shape, with one problem: whenever I light the pilot light to turn on the oven, a few seconds later there's a "WHOOOMP!" sound - surely some gas build-up lighting - and then the oven is on, and it works fine. How can I fix this? [more inside]
