Question about Vulcan 36L Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Vulcan Range that wasn't heating.

Hi again, OK, I bought and installed the correct regulator on the range. It heats much better now (a pan of cold water comes to a boil in 3 minutes instead of 10+). But I still have a couple of questions. 1. The installation instructions for the range call for 3/4" piping.  I would assume that means all the way to the range?  The regulator is 3/4". However, about 8' of the the gas line (from the 3/4" iron in the basement to the shut-off valve at the range, is 1/2" flexible copper).  Could that be restricting the flow of gas and should I replace it with 3/4"? 2. When the oven door is shut there is about a 1/8" gap at the bottom that tapers to nothing at the top.  Should the door shut flush or does it need to take in some air. Thanks again - in advance.

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.

GE gas range on propane, using propane jets, the burner regulator knob has little effect on heat output. Is this a gas burner valve issue?


You also need to set the regulator to LP. The symptom described is an indication that the regulator is still set to natural gas. The manual should tell you how. As I remember, there is a cap on top of the regulator that is removed to allow access to a retainer that needs to be turned over so the "LP" is facing up. Check your manual or look it up online

Oven not heating properly


Hello- Sometimes ignitors work enough to light burner, but not enough to step up gas flow at regulator. Lower burner ignitor is bad if resistance is less than 4ohms. New part through local app. parts store.- 50-75$. Ignitor is mounted next to burner under bottom pan in oven. Plug is behind pan drawer. Fairly easy to replace. hope this helps- Thanks- ED

My broiler and range work but my "bake" option will not produce any heat??? Please help!!!


If this is an electric range, it sounds like you have a bad bake element in the oven. The broiler and bake features each have their own heating element. Thats why the broiler still works. The following link explains how to replace a heating element in an electric range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

If the model range you have this question listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement element is WB44K5012. It lists for about $25 at pcappliancerepair.com.

If you have questions, or if the model number is not correct, please post back with your information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance.. I hope you find this information helpful.

Oven heats very slowly


If your top burners work ok, regulator should be ok. Majority of times the fail part in the oven is the ignitor...turn oven on and check for a flame after 10 mins. small flame could mean a bad safety valve.

Stove top radiant heat burners don't regulate properly


We also have the same problem with the JS968SOK1SS and it is driving the wife crazy since it ruins many recipes that call for even heat.
As she said "It is crazy her electric skillet regulates heat better than her GE range"
I've been telling her Gas is the way. Has anyone found a solution to this problem or is that to be expected of Electric ranges?

Vulcan range that won't heat.


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.

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.
