Where is the thermocouple on the vulcan stove
I think the above link may assist you with your question. Some ovens have difficult access to the thermocouple which is pretty much always right next to the pilot burner. Hope this helps.

Iwant to change from natural gas to propane,wehat

If you live WAY out in the sticks, all you need is a tank of propane and the reqired fittings,BUT,if you live in the good old suburbs or the city you'd better have the gas company do the job. After all they have to shut off the gas feed to your house anyway. Good luck,Dana

I replaced the thermocouple on my Vulcan 36SL. First time, first problem in 10 years. But the pilot flame still goes out. Any advice?

You should check to be sure your pilot flame is strong and not wavy. This can be caused by the pilot itself being dirty and clogged. The pilot gas orifice is very small and it doesn't take much to disrupt the flame. If this is good and the pilot flame is heating the thermocouple correctly you will need to look at your safety valve. It could be the problem. Be sure not to over tighten thermocouples into the safety valve, they should only be hand tight plus a quarter turn. Any more than that can break the safety and the thermocouple. You should also check the gas pressure, if it is too low or a regulator is not working the pilot can go out when the main burner is turned on (pilot can get starved in low pressure situation). Another item to check is drafts and air movement that could blow the pilot out, since the oven has been there a while this is not likely the cause. I hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate me.

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.

What could be causing this?

i service these ovens alot and my first guess the t-couple you already replaced.i wouldnt think its the valve.lp burns very dirty as you know,clean out the burner/pilot assmbely and see if this solves it.also take a look at it when its lit and see if the pilot is being pulled to the burner.let me know.also if the unit has a regulator on the back pull the vent plug and clean it up.
