Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range
I need to remove the oven door in order to remove the oven floor to access the pilot and thermocouple.
Hi, is this unit a convection unit? usually you don't need to remove the door to replace the thermocouple, if it is convection unit, you will need to shut the gas off, remove the safety, and there are two metal plates covering the burner area, take those out, the next thing is to remove is the burner, it is usually just fitted in the back, once this is out, as the pilot is attached to it, you can replace the t'couple now, assemble reverse.
If you really need to remove the door, and you are really lucky, remember to undo the spring hooks holding the door so it does not snap the door closed during disassembly, usually you can just pry up on the triangle near the hook, releasing tension to unhook the door hooks, leaving the springs attached. You can just take the screws out that hold the top of the door, the bottom of the door, and I think the handle, then the door skins split, and on each side at the hinge, there is a set of bolts holding the hinge in place, remove these, and you should be able to remove the door, otherwise you need to take the bottom kick plate off, along each edge inside the door frame, are screws holding the outer channels in place, remove these, and down along the inside of the kick plate edge too. Easily pry these away from the oven body, older units had a solid piece from front to back, and you had to remove the entire side panels, or were spot welded altogether, all you can do then is pry them back best as possible, and hopefully they won't crease. Inside these channels are the hinge plates that the hinge goes into, unbolt them, slide the door out, and there you have a door in you hand. Garland has a kit to replace all of these parts as you go, if they are badly worn. I know, allot for a thermocouple. Hope that helps, and thank you.
