Question about Roper FGP305 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Insufficient gas for cottage during winter

I was recently deer hunting. Our cabin has an older 4 burner roper gas range and two gas lights that all run off the same LP tank. We've never had problems before last year when the regulator was changed, but we now can't run more than 1 buner on the stove and NO lights. Does it sound like my brother-in-law put the wrong TYPE reulator on? I'm not sure if it's a low or a high pressure one. For the described system, which would we need? As an asise, by banging on the tank we got a much better flame for about 30 seconds.

Sure, there are lots of regulators, but one commonly used for gas grills should be fine. (maybe the brother in law used a step down regulator for natural gas, which won't work for you) I don't know your location, but another factor might be your outdoor temperature. If it is very cold, the liquid petroleum (LP) in your tank will not vaporize fast enough to satisfy demand, regardless of regulator size. A full tank in a warmer location would help immensely, but it is not real wise to have the tank indoors.

Caloric range oven, older at least 20 years old, the range burners spark, but will not light, i am assuming that its electronic ignition, no pilot light?


If you don't smell gas, then it is probably electronic ignition and not a pilot light.

But if your oven and none of the range burners light, are you sure you are getting gas to the unit or from the range valve to the burners and oven? Can you light the burners with a match? If you can you can rule out the valve and incoming gas line, and concentrate on the ignitors.

I have an old Vulcan 6 burner commercial gas stove with a 24" griddle. The gas was turned off during a remodel. Now the gas is back on and the gas burners work fine but I cannot get the oven pilot light to...


Hi- This should have a gas Safety Valve, this is the main valve to the oven (this probably has 2). If you remove the lower panel under the doors they are probably right there. Looks like a large gas valve with a button on it, sometimes the button is red. You need to hold in that button while lighting the pilot and keep holding it in for a few seconds until the thermocouple gets hot enough to tell the valve to keep the pilot on. You'll have to do this for both ovens if there are 2 valves. It's possible the valves are located somewhere else on the range so you may have to hunt a bit. If the pilots still won't stay lit you may need new thermocouples in which case I'd call a Tech out to look at it. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Burners on top will not light with the pilot lights


To Clean:
IMPORTANT:
Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach
or rust removers.
1. Remove the burner cap from the burner base and clean
according to “General Cleaning” section.
2. Clean the gas tube opening with a damp cloth.
3. Clean clogged burner ports with a straight pin as shown. Do
not enlarge or distort the port. Do not use a wooden
toothpick. If the burner needs to be adjusted, contact a
trained repair specialist.
4. Replace the burner cap, making sure the alignment pins are
properly aligned with the burner cap.
5. Turn on the burner. If the burner does not light, check cap aligment.

Pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range


Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

Gas kitchen range


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame--either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Most new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners. If, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.
