SOURCE: How do you light the

This range has a standing pilot light for the top burners and griddle top. If you look through the small hole under the flat top griddle you can see a small line about 1/4 inch that runs from the main gas manifold to the pilot light about 6 inches back under the griddle top. You will need a tightly wrapped piece of paper or a long match or small wooden stick, like a chop stick. Light the end of your paper, or stick and put it through the hole all the way to the pilot light. It should catch on fire. Whenever the main gas line is on, the gas will flow through the pilot light. If it will not light, there is a pilot light adjustment that is a very small screw in the middle of a 1/2 inch square metal fitting that is screwed into the gas manifold. If the pilot won't light, this screw may be turned all the way in, thus cutting the gas off to the pilot light. If necessary take a very small flat blade screw driver and turn the screw counterclockwise a half turn. That will increase the gas flow to the pilot light. Another way to light the pilot is to put your burning stick or match into the hole near the burner under the griddle plate, then slowly turn the heat valve to the on position. The main burner will light and then the pilot will light off of it. Don't get your face too close to the griddle when you light it, gas can flash back into your face.

SOURCE: I have an old Vulcan

Hi- This should have a gas Safety Valve, this is the main valve to the oven (this probably has 2). If you remove the lower panel under the doors they are probably right there. Looks like a large gas valve with a button on it, sometimes the button is red. You need to hold in that button while lighting the pilot and keep holding it in for a few seconds until the thermocouple gets hot enough to tell the valve to keep the pilot on. You'll have to do this for both ovens if there are 2 valves. It's possible the valves are located somewhere else on the range so you may have to hunt a bit. If the pilots still won't stay lit you may need new thermocouples in which case I'd call a Tech out to look at it. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

SOURCE: where is the pilot light for imperial range oven

Stick the torch or whatever way back on the LEFT hole. You will see the pilot go on. Do not let go of the red button (which you are holding the whole time) for 60 seconds after it's lit.

I have 36 in Imperial SS gas stove with constant pilot lights on .i believe its a commercial unit.I am unable to start pilot light for oven ,rather it starts and as soon as i release red button ,flame goes...


it sounds like the thermocouple which is heated by the flame is faulty its purpose is to hold the gas valve open so gas can flow but if the pilot goes out the thermocouple stops producing electricity and so the valve closes its there for safety reasons

Miraclean pilot lighting


I'm not familiar with your particular appliance but all gas fired appliances have a thermocouple and igniter.

the thermocouple is designed to allow/prevent the gas valve from opening.
They commonly go bad on stoves and hot water heaters.

should you wish to attempt a repair yourself l
look on the Internet for a picture of the thermocouple for your unit , turn the gas valve off, then attempt to clean the thermocouple first with some medium grit sandpaper. Just some gentle rubbing a few times can take carbon buildup off.

Then try the start proceedure again. If the pilot light or burners do not light the the thermocouple is the least expensive component I can think of to repla e. usually less than $20 and very intuitive to do.

if that does not work depending on your ability you may either need to replace the igniter or gas valve. Or. Call a pro.

Be safe and keep the gas valve on the unit off until you are ready to restart each time
Hope this helps

I have a vulcan60CL77R stove and the oven pilots keep going out. Also I need 6" pilot tubes for front burners. Can you help?


Yes we can help you. We service Vulcan and we love these units. May I begin to telling you that you have a great range?!! This is either your ignitors or the gas valves, but most probably the ignitors out if the pilots keep going out. I will check on the price and availability of all the parts that you need and respond to this request. Could you please send me your email address? We look forward to working with you on this issue.

Pilot wont light.


Firstly make sure the gas knob is exactly in the pilot mode some are finiky and won't light unless in exactly the right postion. Make sure once lit when pushing down on the pilot knob that you hold it down long enough for the thermocouple to sense the pilot. Barring both of those the most likley culprit is the thermocouple itself is faulty and can easily be removed usally with a couple of screws and a small adjustable wrench.
