Garland oven does not work

We recently bought a house and it came with a garland stove. i have no idea what model it is since i can't find it anywhere on the stove. it is a gas stove, with 6 burners and one oven. the burners work just fine, but the oven doesn't. i can see that the pilot is on for the oven and there are 2 switches for the oven. one to turn it on, and the other to set the temperature. i turn both levers and nothing happens. i don't even smell gas! any ideas of what could be wrong?

    This was exactly it!! We replaced the thermocouple and when nothing happened, we found the red safety button and when we re-set it, we had heat in the oven. Thank you soo much - this saved us money and more headaches!

Hi, it is hard to tell for sure, but it sounds like your safety device, the component that keeps the pilot lit, may have failed, allowing gas to the pilot, but not letting gas through to the burner. See your manual on/off valve lets gas to the thermostat, then through the thermostat down to the safety, because you wouldn't want gas to get past there if there is no pilot, and now that part is stuck open, but the rest of the part is not engaged to open and let gas continue to the burner. There is an easy way to tell, under the bottom panel, is a part with a red button ( the safety ) and connected to it is a copper looking tube, or the thermocouple, it can be disconnected by unscrewing it from the safety with a wrench, if the pilot goes out, your safety is mostly working, if not, it is bad, and needs replacement. Let me know, hope that help, and thank you.

How do I switch the wiring for a Garland Model S 686 -2 Stove from Single Phase to 3 Phase?


If the oven is a three phase oven currently wired on single phase there will be three active terminals at the terminal block. There will be links or bridges which connect the single phase to each of these active terminals. Remove these links and connect each phase to each terminal.

I have a Garland Stove and Oven. The oven is not working right.


Hi there, most of the newer unit parts are available still, but not seeing it makes it hard to guarantee. I would advise calling a Factory Authorized Servicer in your area, having a problem with gas entering the oven, and not igniting is a serious problem, and it sounds like the pilot is lit in the oven, but could be malfunctioning.
Here is the telephone for Garland: Tel: 1.800.424.2411.
They can recommend someone in your area, or check your local phone book, for Restaurant repair companies, and contact them.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

I am not sure of the model number of my Garland gas range (propane) I bought it in 1970 from a farmer who had purchased it at a restaurant sale. It is OLD. (so am I) I have had trouble for years with the ovens going off at times and not relighting immediately. The right oven especially.
In the last 35 years I have had the thermocouplers replaced twice, the safety valves twice, and new pilots twice. The last time these were replaced was 6 months ago by a repairman who said this was the problem. Very spendy. The ovens still would go out. I had a thought (and related it to the repairman) that perhaps there wasn't enough air circulation to the oven burners (the top burners and grill worked fine) He said there was plenty of air getting to the ovens. Two weeks later I had my son help me move the stove out another 4" from the wall and I have not had one bit of problem with the ovens since.
You can buy new fire bricks for the grill at a heating shop. I am having trouble with the thermostats now, they don't regulate the ovens to coincide with the settings. I will have them replaced next.
Every one thinks I should just get a new stove. No way. This is a great old stove, I love it.

We want to refurbish the old Garland stove in our church kitchen.


Hi, I am sure you can still get the thermostat replaced, however, it is unlikely anyone will service the unit without oven safeties, for insurance/liability issues. You may be able to get it updated with these devices, but I would bet that you could find a newer used unit that is in fair to good shape for the same or a little bit more money. You can contact Garland range at www.garland-group.com, call 1 800 424 2411, or look in your phone book in "restaurant equipment repair" for a company to advise you, and "restaurant equipment sales" for new/used equipment. Check on ebay for approximate prices if you are curious. Hope that helps, and thank you.

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.

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!
