I have a Garland Sunfire 36 inch gas Range. oven does not come on again after reaching temp.


You probably have a bad thermocouple. Try cleaning it off with sand paper. It's the part that the pilot light is igniting.

Oven not working. gas on stove top is working. not sure if gas is not getting to oven or if there is another problem causing the oven not to heat up.


Check the pilot light assembly.Make sure the pilot is lit.If it looks good the thermocouple may be bad. If the pilot is lit,I would call for the repairman.

Don't know how to light the pilot light in the oven.It is a Garland ten burner two ovens. It is about 11 years old. Where is the pilot light and how do I light it.


Most commercial ovens have a manually lit pilot. There will be a button somewhere on the range that you will need to push in so gas will come out of the pilot assembly. While holding this button you will the light the pilot and will need to hold the button in for about a minute or two until the pilot stays on after you release the button. Look around the bottom panel,top panel or side panels(you may need to remove one) to find the button. they are usually red and may not look like a button. If you find the button and the pilot does not stay lit then the thermocouple might be bad. If you push the button and do not get any gas coming out of the pilot then there might be debris in the pilot assembly causing the gas not to come out. In that case you could try and tap the assembly or blow with compressed air to clear it. But in most cases you will need to remove the pilot assembly and use a really fine wire(like a metal tie-strap minus the coating) to clear the pilot orfice.

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 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.

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.
