Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a Southbend commercial Griddle/Range/Double Oven and I cannot light the pilots for the griddle top. Everyday I have to lift the griddle and light the burners by hand. The pilot adjustment screw does not seem to help.

Pilot will not light after repeated attemps. Shut main gas line off as book suggested. Re-lit burners and then oven pilot. Pilot only stays lit if holding red pilot button


90% chance your thermocouple is bad.

This should work: http://www.partstown.com/southbend_range/sou1196078

10% chance your red push button safety valve is bad. If it is really hard to push in I would recommend changing that as well.

Griddle top replacement


well this is different, but sounds like fun. I would just Repair the gas griddle you have. from the sound of it you need to replace the 3 or 4 tstats that control the griddle. If you are in a Metro area you can find a dealer for Robert Shaw and get the parts you need. but you may also start at http://www.garland-group.com/. everything there will be newer but you will be able ask about where the data plate is and then get parts lists. call a small comercial kitchen repair company and ask for help there too.

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.

How do you light the pilot for the flat top section of our Imperial 6 top stove?


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.

How do I season the griddle that came with my new gas stove?


This is taken verbatim from page 11 of my Frigidaire Gallery range:
"Seasoning, using and caring for the griddle Before first use: -Wash griddle in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry completely. -Apply a thin coat of vegetable oil to the entire surface (front and back of griddle). -Preheat your oven to 350*F. Place the griddle on the upper rack in your oven. -Bake griddle for 1 hour at 350*F, then turn oven OFF and let cool before removing. -The surface may have a tacky feel to it from the seasoning process. If desired, wash the griddle in hot soapy water, rinse well, and dry completely.
Using the griddle: Remove the center burner grate and carefully replace with the griddle (some models). Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.
After each use: -To prevent rusting, store in a dry place and keep uncovered. -After each use, clean with a stiff brush and hot water only. -Do not clean griddle in the dishwasher. -Dry immediately and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to griddle before storing.

Need to replace griddle thermostat


My husband and I just had to check out our griddle on our 48 inch Viking rangetop. You remove the grates and the grate holders on either side of the griddle..it just pops out. Then you raise your griddle up about 4" to remove your thermastats., noting the position they are in so when you replace you can put back correctly. After pulling the thermastats out, then you lift the griddle out. Griddle is extremely heavy so be prepared to have close surface to lay it. Hope this helps.
