Garland stove pilot light problem, again but different

Again, our 50 or so yr old Garland commercial (six burner, double oven, salamander) is having pilot issues. You all helped us clean up the one oven pilot with the needle and seems to be working fine. But, we turned off the pilot to the second oven 3 yrs ago when we rented the house. Now that we are back we are trying to re-light it and it won't take. We did the cleaning with the needle but still it will not light. Any ideas?

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.

I have seen Garland's have issues with the pilot light. see if you can watch the cycle.It may takes several minutes. I have seen where the pilot actually lifts off the pilot assembly and go out and cause oven to fail. Turning off and on resets the failure and sometimes it will light. Start there and be patient.

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.

How do you pass a plumbing inspections with a 1956 Garland H283 ?


There may be multiple issues here.

Question: Is this being installed in a residence?

If so, I can see why an inspector might have a problem with that. Commercial cooking appliances, *especially* really old ones have next to NO safety devices on them. There might in fact be NO safeties on this thing at all. This means that if stiff breeze blows out the pilot light, it will keep letting gas into the room until something blows up.

This is much less of a concern in a commercial setting where: a) there's always going to be lots of ventilation and b) the gas supply is more than likely going to be interlocked with a fire suppression system.

If he's asking for documentation, it could also be because he's looking to make sure that the gas line & venting are sized correctly. If you're running natural gas, then 1/2" black iron should be sufficient for the gas supply if you're within 50 FT. of the meter, but it also depends on what else you've got tied in. Bumping the gas line size to 3/4" is what I'd probably do anyways

Without more info, there's little else to be said except that arguing with inspectors is like arguing with cats, but less rewarding. :)
Here are *some* SPECS anyways:

24,000 BTU natural gas StarFire burners or 20,000 BTU propane gas StarFire burners. 30,000 BTU race track even heat oven burner

Cheers.

When Oven turns off so does oven pilot


Hi there, it is possible of the pilot being too close, but usually does not have that effect, unless the pilot is too small. But if you replaced the pilot, it should be clean, so next I would look at the gas pressure, if this is too low, the flame won't have proper burning speed, and strength, and could get drawn out. The control valve may be of the type that has a regulator built in, you may need someone skilled at gas pressure measuring, to do this, your gas supplier, appliance professional, plumber, should be able to do this.

Let us know, and thank you.

Ovens won't work.. pilot safeties keep dying..


Hi, just wanted to ask, are you sure the safety valves are bad? seems strange that 2 would go bad like that. I have seen thermocouples ( $7 to $12 ) improperly installed,routed, not an OEM part,dirty pilots, affect them alot more often than a bad safety ($150 to $250). There is no baffle plate behind the safety, however, if mounted properly, it should be well out of any heat range that would be causing any problems. Are you sure it isn't "front venting" ? meaning the exhaust, or part of it, has to escape out of the front of the unit, causing it to overheat? this can be caused by a few things, something blocking,covering,in the flue. Your gas pressure too high, or no regulator at all, sooting, clogged orfice causing gas to burn in the burner, alignment of orfice to burner, etc.. Hope all that helps, let us know :)

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.
