Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

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


We turn it on, smell gas, and it doesn't light. When we turn it off, the oven stays hot, and I see a red glow inside. The stove has 6 burners and they work fine. The oven worked sometimes, and at other times it came on but didn't get hot. I can't find a serial number anywhere on the stove.

We had the oven repaired about four years ago. The service man said the oven was old and parts were not available. It is possible to rebuild the oven heating units with new parts?

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.

This is more than likely the igniter to be sure you will need to do an amp draw on the igniter. To do this watch the video on troubleshooting a gas oven at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

Garland H283 gas range. Right oven wont come on.


I just read this here:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=13&newsdesk_id=117
that explained how to test if the problem is the thermostat. It said to watch the pilot as you open the thermostat to turn on the oven. If the thermostat is ok the pilot should get bigger, if the pilot does not change when turning on the thermostat, then the thermostat is bad.

Garland oven does not work


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.

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.

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.
