Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range
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?
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.
