Question about Vulcan 36L Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Vulcan range that won't heat.

Hi, Thanks very much for your opinion on the range - that's it probably a pressure or regulator problem. My problem now is that I can't find anyone to work on it since it's a commercial range in a residence. Does "Hobarttech" indicate you work for Hobart (in Minneapolis, by any chance)? I had a person from Hobart out a few years ago and he calibrated it and declared it "fine," which it wasn't. So how do I find someone, maybe a technician who is willing to moonlight on a job like this, so I can get it fixed.  I am happy to sign a waiver, ignore code, or whatever it take to get this stove working properly.  My wife says to fix it or we need to get a new stove - and I can't disagree as I wait 10-15 minutes for a small pan of water to boil. Thanks for any help you can give. Mike Miller

    Someone told me it would be hazardous for me to replace the unit but I'm very handy and, as long as it's a preset unit, I don't know why I shouldn't do it.
    Thanks again.

Yes, I am a technician for Hobart, in Michigan. If your burners are uniformly low, and you know it is set up for the fuel you are using, swap out the regulator. You should be able to buy a pre-set regulator, just make sure it is for the correct gas. If you don't feel comfortable, call around. I'm sure someone needs the business.

Sounds like the pressure regulator on the stove is going bad. The pressure regulator is located in the back. Your gas supply line should connect directly to it.

Vulcan Range that wasn't heating.

The half inch tubing should be adequate under most circumstances. However, you may run into volume issues while using the oven and a few burners at the same time. If it bothers you, replace it. The door should be flush (or close to it) on the sides and the top. If you have an air gap, check the hinges.

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

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.
