Question about Vulcan GCO2D Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

Main burner ignites, but cut-off soon after.

I hear click, click sound soon as I turn the oven on and feels the heat cominng from inside the oven. After 5 min or so, oven light indicates, there is no ignition and attempt to re-ignite the oven. I do not know about this oven, but in my humble opion,I believe it is the hi limit switch, if they do have it. Please let me know asap

Thanks

    I looked up the wiring diagram and it does not show a high limit. Very strange as I have never seen any piece of equipment like this without a high limit safety. I believe it is in either the temp probe or ignition module. The service manual explanation of the sequence of operations never mentions a high limit nor does the trouble shooting section. The only other item could possibly be is the centifugal switch in the blower motor but I am in doubt of that as the unit does ignite.

SOURCE: Why won't my oven ignite? Vulcan model GC04c

i can get you the error code but dont have my manual at the time.a couple things to check.do you here the clicking sound of the ignitor that ignites the gas?when you installed the regulator are you sure its on right?you should see an arrow on the regulator body and it should be pointing to the oven.also you need 10 inches of water colum (gas pressure)with a propane system where as natural you need less,regardless ill be in touch.

SOURCE: VulcN MODEL gc04C CONVECTION OVEN WON;T IGNITE ER-05 CODE

thaddeus,leave the ignitor in its place and try to bend/adjusted close to the burner.if you dont hear a click--click noise its not sparking and the problem may be the ignition board.if you do hear it check the orange/black wire to the ignitor.it could be damaged and the spark is being grounded onto the frame of the oven.the easy way to tell is if you hear the spark but no gas try to light it manually,if sucessful clean out the pilot--if this doesnt work replace the ignition cable.i service these ovens alot.if you need a part let me know and i can give you a part #.

SOURCE: ignition

If you smell gas, then check the ignitor circut first. A spark ignitor usually has a grey or orange wire, leading from the ignitor to the input circut. Try testing the terminal where the ignitor is powered, when the unit should be calling for ignition. If there is ample voltage to the ignitor, but it will not spark, shut off the power and the gas to the appliance and remove the pilot assembly. The ignitor will either unclamp or unscrew from it, and can now be replaced. Check to see if it is properly spaced (which it should be if undisturbed), or if any deposits are on it. Sometimes they can be properly spaced or cleaned to work once again.

I have a whirlpool range rf263lxtq the oven stays consent on what is wrong with it


Oven clicks as if it is relighting almost constantly.

· Old electric range ovens use a coil heating element called a resistive coil.
This is nothing more than an electrical wire encased in a sheath. They have flat black coils over rounded burner drip bowls that catch your drips and spills.
· The newer glass-ceramic cook top style element produces heat that radiates through the glass top to the cookware above.
· Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
· Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. GAS OVENS 1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).

2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).

3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.
ELECTRIC OVENS:

CHECK THE OVEN RELAY CONTROL BOARD Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

Why is my oven not heating up?


Call an electrician. Sounds like a thermal cut out or a bad element.

On any gas appliance there is a high and a low limit temp stat which could be indipendant or on the gas valve it's self, that is faulty.

It could possibly be you are not getting 240 volts to the range. The top igniter may be getting a current back through the other side of the 240 circuit and that is why it works when the oven is turned on but the oven will not be getting power to heat. Have the 240 circuit checked or make sure the circuit breakers are reset correctly.

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
