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.

Thanks
Denise

Gas valve on Vulcan oven SG4D-1 makes a chattering noise?


if it is a buzzing noise it is usually not big deal. If it is truly a chatter, I suggest replacing as the electric coil is going bad.

Hot water heater pilot will not light


You have red wires connected to bottom of gas control valve?
Is this a power vent model?
What model, what brand water heater?
Is new thermocouple is finger-tight plus 1/4 turn and not shorted against gas control valve?

Copy following link for safety magnet:
Magnet will click closed when pilot is turned off. Put butane lighter on end of thermocouple and listen for clicking sound.

Copy following link for troubleshoot by type of gas control valve:

Bad gas control valve:
Low gas pressure, air in gas line, inadequate air supply, clean the air intake, tripped FVIR system, etc.

Wall heater will not work, even with thermostat in on pisition


themobilian_1545.jpg
Your thermocouple may be shot.
Have ya try to replace that one?
A simple thermostat now let me show ya a video of a man that has replaced his thermostat. Even though that gas valve is a bit different the thermocouple does the same function and that is hold down the safety magnet. Now watch:



Replace that thermocouple on your heater.

The pilot lights ok,the burners light,but after sometimes 5 to 10 minutes later both will go out


The gas for both passes thru the FMDA Safety Valve - in you case it's defective and must be replaced. You can find it here

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.

Pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top... previous user says to turn on gas and lite "sensor" or "2nd pilot" it stays lit as long as oven knob is on but oven burner does not light. "sensor" goes out...


On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.

Describe what could be the problem if my oven will light but not stay alight once I release the gas button


That could be one of 3 things: The thermocouple could be bad, the hole that the thermocouple screws into could have corrosion and causing a loss of electrical current to the safety magnet. Or the safety magnet itself is bad. The thermocouple when heated generates electricity. The magnet inside the valve is powered by the thermocouple. If the pilot light goes out the magne looses energy and the spring attached to it shuts off the flow of gas. Pretty clever ain't it?
