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.

Vulcan oven pilot light how to relight


Hello Lynne,
To relight the pilots,start by removing the floor of the oven,then remove the small access panel below the doors. On the main oven burner will be a small pilot burner that probably looks something like this 10_26_2011_9_29_16_pm.jpg
on the gas valve behind that small panel under the doors will be a red button,push that red button and hold it in while lighting that pilot burner...continue tohold that red button for 30 seconds,release it and the pilot should be lit.
Good luck,GENE

The pilot light on the oven is on how ever the burner will not come on when the oven is turned up.


Hello,
Their is 2 possible things that are causing the oven to not heat.

1) the pilot burner is clogged with build up and not burning corretly...the standing pitol light is small and when the oven is turned on the pilot enlarges and heats a small bulb connected to a tube on a gas valve,if the pilot burner is clogged it will burn the small pilot but will not enlarge to heat that bulb so the gas will flow to the main burner.If that is whats happening the pilot burner needs to be replaced.

2) the pilot burner is properly heating the bulb connected to the above mentioned gas valve but that gas valve is bad and not opening once the pilot has heated the bulb..so in that case that gas valve would need to be replaced

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir


older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

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.

Vulcan 148L oven burner will not light. pilot on. should pilot flame touch thermocuple?


Yes.

Over time, thermocouples erode in pilot flames and when they no longer reach the pilot light they need to be replaced. Check the thermocouple mountings as well: some ham-fisted amateurs try to bend the probe back into the pilot light and break the mountings. The pilot light jet will also need to be checked to ensure that it is clean and that the pilot is burning correctly.

Note that as with all gas appliances, repairs should only be carried out by qualified gas fitters who have the tools and knowledge to leave your appliance in a safe condition. In many countries it's a legal requirement. My reply is therefore given on an informational basis only as poor workmanship on gas appliances is directly attributable to many deaths every year.

One of the top burner pilot lights will not stay


You probably have grease that has gotten into the pilot. Turn off the gas to the pilot and detach the pilot tubing and pilot tip. It sometimes helps to take a propane torch and heat up the pilot tip and tubing, paying special attention to the first bend from the pilot tip. Get it red hot and tap out any ash from the inside. You may have to **** out the tubing with a piece of bare wire or blow it out with WD-40. With the oven pilot, check the pilot flame. If low, adjust. If OK, replace the thermocouple. If neither of these corrects the problem, replace the pilot satety. I always recommend a new thermocouple with a new pilot safety.

How do i adjust oven pilot light on vulcan range


hi, there is an orfice for the oven located on the gas valve. If you are using LP gas, the orfice should be turn down all the way (counter clockwise). If you are using natural gas, the orfice should be turned out about 2-1/2 turns. Was this oven set up to be used with one gas and noe is being used with another? If so, you will need to do more then adjust orfices. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Oven pilot light will not stay lit


The thermocouple is bad this is the probe that sits next to the pilot,the pilot flame heats the thermocouple and then it sends a micro voltage to the valve to keep it lit.Goto hobartcorp.com and find your model then the part number.
