Question about Vulcan 36L Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Burners heat very slowly, oven has to be set 50 degrees higher than desired temp. to get the right heat.

It takes forever to heat a pan of water.  The flames on the burners are a soft mixture of blue and yellow - no intensity at all. An inspector was out from the gas company to check our meter this summer and, although he was not a technician, he looked at the burners and said, "That's not right." Could it be pressure?  The wrong regulator (the range was purchased slightly used and we've always had this problem)? I saw a Vulcan in a church basement a while back and it was a blowtorch compared to ours. Help. Thanks.

First, you should make sure the unit is set up to run the type of gas you use. If you have natural gas and it is set up for lpg, or vice versa. If it is wrong, you can retrofit it by changing out the orifices. Other than that, check your pressure at the manifold that feeds the burners to see if it is adequate. A bad regulator could very easily cause this problem as well.

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

My Whirlpool oven no longer heats to the set temperature.


Temp probe/thermometer inside oven dirty, or off attachment, or defective. On some models, a small screw head adjustment is provided to calibrate thermometer under dial knob. Else, I would just set dial 50 degrees higher rather than expense of new thermometer or dial.

Oven will not heat to right temp


you can calibrate you oven try presiing and holding the bake button for 3-5 secs. it should beep and put a 00 in the display. using the temp up or down arrows you should be able to adjust ther temp to a max of 35 degrees + or -. after setting to desird 25 presss start and that setting will be ingrained in the memory forever(or until you change it again)power failure will not effect it either . of that doesnt work gimme the modle and ill ck further

Inacurate temp


The follow suggestions apply if you are at sea level, or a bit above. If you are in the mountains, you'll have to compensate for altitude issues. You need an accurate thermometer to be spot on. One way is to use an electronic thermometer. Another is to set the oven to 217 degrees, insert a small pan of water into the oven, with a metal tray or pie tin on a lower rack to catch spills and see if it eventually boils. If the water didn't boil, you can adjust the temperature upward in  5 degree steps (see your owner's manual for details). If you've lost your manual, you may be able to go on-line and get a pdf copy of your manual.If the water does boil, you know your oven is accurate within 5 degrees. You can then proceed to re-do the experiment at 212 degrees, if you wish. Then you may use the data to adjust the oven temperature.

After it drops temperature, how do you get it back to the desired degrees? It sounds like the thermostat isn't keeping up.
