Garland Range G286 - adjusting oven pilot light

I have a Garland G286. I always thought the oven pilot burned too high so I had a serviceman lower it during a recent visit. Now the thermocouple doesn't stay hot enough to keep the pilot lit. How can I adjust the size of the oven pilot flame on this model?

Pilot relighting Garland Commercial range


The main burner valve is the oven valve. The pilot will be next to the burner and you either have to insert a long shiskabob stick ( lit) into the hole or lift up on the bottom of the oven (inside) and you will see the pilot.

PILOT LIGHT TOO LARGE ON A GARLAND OVEN RANGE. CAN I ADJUST IT OR BLOW IT OUT COMPLETELY?


If there is a small screw on the pilot lie it is adjustable. DO NOT just blow it out, you will have raw gas leaking into your home. Eric

Oven pilot light too large. Can I adjust it or simplely blow it out and relight when needed?


No, do not just blow it out and relight as needed. This could be dangerous. Besides who would want to light the pilot every time you use the oven. A correctly adjusted pilot light uses a negligible amount of gas. A correctly adjusted oven pilot light should be steady and blue about 1/4" to 1/2" high. If it is yellow it is getting too little air. If there is a space between the flame and the feed tube it is getting too much air. To correct either problem turn the pilot adjustment screw slightly on the gas line near the pilot light as directed by the manufacture. Once you get it adjusted correctly leave it on.

Every couple of days the pilot light goes out.


Hello. It sounds like you are able to relight it, and all is good till the next time. I would suggest replacing the thermocouple for the oven, and cleaning the pilot. The pilot is probably dirty, they draw dust into them while burning, and thermocouples are reasonably priced. You could be having a problem with your pilot safety, the part with the red button that you push to relight the pilot, however it is easier, and cheaper to get a new t'couple,and clean the pilot first.

You can go to: www.garland-group.com or call them for parts 1.800.424.2411. There are many part suppliers online that can get what you need.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Garland stove oven pilot light does not stay lit


If there is any adjustment, it would be a small screw on the oven control accessible with the oven control knob removed. This adjustment affects the size of the top burner pilots, but I'm not sure about the oven. The oven pilot orifice may have an obstruction, or if the flame is actually normal size where it covers the thermocouple when it burns, you may have a thermocouple problem.

Pilot light


Maybe. Sometimes these units have small throttle valves near the pilot. If it adjusts...make sure it is about 1/2 inch long....you don't want it blowing out.

Garland stove pilot light problem, again but different


I'm not familiar with Garlands. When I run into a similar problem with other stoves of that vintage (Wedgewoods, etc.) I trace the pilot lines piece by piece, from the manifold to the pilot burner, if necessary opening a connection or two to see where I'm getting gas and where I'm not.

Is there a needle valve for adjusting the pilot flame? Is there gas getting all the way to the pilot burner? When it's the pilot burner itself that's the problem, I take it apart, brush/blow/shake out the crud, and run a small drill (#79 or so) through the orifice.

Oven pilot light won't light


It is usually a bad thermocouple. Mine had only had a weak pilot flame and the problem turned out to be a corroded and leaking pilot gas line. It was leaking whee it enters at the bottom of the oven chamber.
