If there is any adjustment, it would be a small screw on the oven control accessible with the oven control knob removed. This adjustment affects the size of the top burner pilots, but I'm not sure about the oven. The oven pilot orifice may have an obstruction, or if the flame is actually normal size where it covers the thermocouple when it burns, you may have a thermocouple problem.

Oven not working. gas on stove top is working. not sure if gas is not getting to oven or if there is another problem causing the oven not to heat up.


Check the pilot light assembly.Make sure the pilot is lit.If it looks good the thermocouple may be bad. If the pilot is lit,I would call for the repairman.

Garland gas oven pilot light won't stay lit. We have cleaned it and depressed red button for varying times up to 10 minutes. Adjusted flam


The ovens are protected by a thermocouple. It's the steel rod that the pilot flame heats up. The idea is simple- if the thermocouple doesn't sense heat from a pilot flame, it won't allow the gas regulator to send gas to the oven burner bar; it won't even allow the pilot to stay lit. Easy to replace. My Garland oven uses a 24" thermocouple. Any good hardware store has them for around $10. Just take off the skirt that covers the over-ride buttons on the regulator. You'll see the other end of the thermocouple there. I recommend taking the old one with you so you know which length to get. When you install the new one, just curl any excess in a nice big loop & tuck it out of the way.

Every couple of days the pilot light goes out.


Hello. It sounds like you are able to relight it, and all is good till the next time. I would suggest replacing the thermocouple for the oven, and cleaning the pilot. The pilot is probably dirty, they draw dust into them while burning, and thermocouples are reasonably priced. You could be having a problem with your pilot safety, the part with the red button that you push to relight the pilot, however it is easier, and cheaper to get a new t'couple,and clean the pilot first.

You can go to: www.garland-group.com or call them for parts 1.800.424.2411. There are many part suppliers online that can get what you need.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Gas meter was changed upon relighting,top burners pilots are on but oven not


under each (the) oven behind a panel, is a red button it may be a different color from time. this has to be pushed and held while the pilot light under the oven floor is lit with a match. it has to be held to allow enough heat to activate the thermocouple, which will keep the pilot on. if this does not work there may be an additional problem

60" double oven gas Garland stove


We use a Garland from the 1960's and pilot lights ARE scary and should make you nervous. This is why they are no longer allowed in new gas ranges. I mounted an inline gas shut off to the stove where the gas enters (on mine this is right in front on the left side). It turns on and off like a burner and when we are done cooking we simply shut off the gas there. To light the burners or the stove I use one of those long reach lighters. I go to bed knowing that NO gas is coming in.
We love the stove, it makes cooking more fun.
Good Luck!

Oven pilot light won't light


It is usually a bad thermocouple. Mine had only had a weak pilot flame and the problem turned out to be a corroded and leaking pilot gas line. It was leaking whee it enters at the bottom of the oven chamber.
