I know the question is a little older, but maybe it helps someone else... I just did the job and it turned out to be much easier than I thought it would be. The whole burner assembly slides out, so you don't have to work in that small space!

Simply turn off the gas, disconnect the two pipes that go from the oven to the valve (gas and thermostat), disconnect the two door springs from the burner unit, remove the screw that holds the valve, remove the two screws that hold the burner in place and simply slide the thing out. You may have to loosen the right half of the heat protector plate to get it out. That's it.

    By the way - don't forget to secure the oven door somehow! Once the springs are removed, the door WILL open as soon as you are working down there. And that door is heavy enough to knock you out!

Hello. Heh, well, somehow you WILL have to work in that little space, I know it wasn't what you wanted to hear, however...
The easiest way to do this, is to shut off the gas, remove as many items in front of the plate the thermocouple, pilot line,and burner orifice go through. Most of it should come off with wrench's and screwdrivers, then you can take off the plates covering the burner area, once these are off, you have approx. 3 to 4 in. to work in to remove the pilot/burner. Leave the door springs alone, they can stay, its just one of those pain in the **** things, and is the only way.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

    ps: take a picture of it if you can, before you take it apart, then you have something to check when re-assembling.

What can go wrong with a garland thermocouple?


Make sure the thermocouple is screwed securely into the safety valve... it is a -tiny- voltage and a small loss can drop the pilot. Also make sure the pilot flame covers the last 1/3 of the thermocouple element, you don't wan to cover the whole thing. Check for errant air currents that might be blowing the pilot out.

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.

Garland stove oven pilot light does not stay lit


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.

How do I remove the oven door on a Garland Range


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.

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.
