Question about Vulcan 36L Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Have problem with Vulcan oven going out too. Where is valve magnet?

We have struggled with the same oven problem. We have replaced the safety valve & thermocouple numerous times. Is the valve magnet you referred to in the other solution email in the safety value assembly or is it in the main red on/off valve for oven(with temp settings)? We have found that if we pull the heavy bottom panel out of the bottom of the stove it runs non-stop..why do you think that is?. The baked finished product is not so good with this quick fix.

The reason the igniter would come on yet not let the gas flow is because the IGNITER IS WEAK and not drawing the proper power to open the gas valve. Replace the igniter nad the oven will work without having to tap on the valve

I have an old Vulcan 6 burner commercial gas stove with a 24" griddle. The gas was turned off during a remodel. Now the gas is back on and the gas burners work fine but I cannot get the oven pilot light to...

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.

I have a Tappan gas stove that takes forever to heat up (oven) and I smell gas before it starts to heat. Help?

Thanks for answering my questions. It sounds to me like your oven's safety valve is going bad. There have been many times when I am at a customer's house and it has been a while since they used the oven, and it seems to take forever to light the oven. Just tapping the oven safety valve with a wrench or handle of a screw driver is all that's needed to open the valve and light the burner. As long as your oven's igniter glow bar is lighting, (glowing orange or sparking), then the oven safety valve is your problem. It is a silver rectangular valve in the far back bottom of the oven with the orifice on top of it and the burner tube coming down over the orifice. Try tapping it and see if that works. Otherwise, just have it replaced. Douglas

I have a 6 burner Vulcan stove with a bad oven pilot light.

Hi! I have the same problem with one of my burners (I have a morice range). I changed the thermocouple, but it didn´t help. I contacted Morice in France and was told that the problem most sertainly was the coil inside the gasvalve. I don´t know if it possible to dismantle the ovengasvalve to check the coil. As for a burner valve, one should open the valve at the end were the gas goes out to the burner to locate this coil. Best of luck Lars?ui=2&ik=305879aaef&view=att&th=1244dff9c340942f&attid=0.1&disp=thd&zw

I replaced the thermocouple on my Vulcan 36SL. First time, first problem in 10 years. But the pilot flame still goes out. Any advice?

You should check to be sure your pilot flame is strong and not wavy. This can be caused by the pilot itself being dirty and clogged. The pilot gas orifice is very small and it doesn't take much to disrupt the flame. If this is good and the pilot flame is heating the thermocouple correctly you will need to look at your safety valve. It could be the problem. Be sure not to over tighten thermocouples into the safety valve, they should only be hand tight plus a quarter turn. Any more than that can break the safety and the thermocouple. You should also check the gas pressure, if it is too low or a regulator is not working the pilot can go out when the main burner is turned on (pilot can get starved in low pressure situation). Another item to check is drafts and air movement that could blow the pilot out, since the oven has been there a while this is not likely the cause. I hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate me.

Gas oven will not ignite

I would be suspect of the temperature control valve based on your previous experience. I am assuming the safety valve you are speaking of was really a regulator.

Oven problem.

Only 81/2!! most are only expected to give you 5 good yrs anything else is extras. Your problem may be a defective gas valve (safety valve). Also it may be a defective ignitor - the more likely to go bad (if replacing stuff replace ignitor before safety valve. is there a glowing in the oven? does the flames come on any at all?

Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.
