Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Pilot light to oven went out

The oven pilot light on my Garland went out and after many tries at pushing the red pilot light button and banging against the silver box containing the red button the pilot light finally lit. First time the pilot went out. The top burners and hot grill worked fine.
Does this mean the oven pilot light restart mechanism is going out and I should get it replaced?
thank you

It could be that the safety ($150 to $250) is getting old, or grease filled. It could also mean the thermocouple ($7 to $12) is going bad, or has a bad connection. If the copper jacket of the thermocouple is blackened near the pilot, broken or cracked in anyway, it may not be working properly, as it generates a small voltage when heated, less than100th of an AAA battery, to keep your pilot lit. If the pilot orfice is clogged with dust it produces a smaller, less hot flame, which also lowers the output of the thermocouple. If I was performing the service, you would automatically get a pilot cleaning, and a thermocouple, the safety could still be bad, and confirming this is a 50/50 chance to begin with, but it is a cheaper start. Good luck, ask more if you need too, thank you, an Happy New Year.

    Sometimes the pilot gets cloggged with all the stuff you've cooked in it over time. Try spraying some oven cleaner on the pilot tip and see if that works.

I have a Garland Sunfire 36 inch gas Range. oven does not come on again after reaching temp.


You probably have a bad thermocouple. Try cleaning it off with sand paper. It's the part that the pilot light is igniting.

To light those pitots remove oven floor& access panel below the doors,for each oven will be a gas valve inside of the panel below the doors and has a red button. push that red button,light pilot inside of oven near the main burner,hold red button for 30 seconds and releas.Pilot should be on,repeat for other oven. If pilots go out after red button was held down for 30 seconds the part called the thermocoupler will need to be replaced

Pilot relighting Garland Commercial range


The main burner valve is the oven valve. The pilot will be next to the burner and you either have to insert a long shiskabob stick ( lit) into the hole or lift up on the bottom of the oven (inside) and you will see the pilot.

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

Garland stove pilot light problem, again but different


I'm not familiar with Garlands. When I run into a similar problem with other stoves of that vintage (Wedgewoods, etc.) I trace the pilot lines piece by piece, from the manifold to the pilot burner, if necessary opening a connection or two to see where I'm getting gas and where I'm not.

Is there a needle valve for adjusting the pilot flame? Is there gas getting all the way to the pilot burner? When it's the pilot burner itself that's the problem, I take it apart, brush/blow/shake out the crud, and run a small drill (#79 or so) through the orifice.

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.
