Question about Garland H284-24G Kitchen Range

3 Answers

Garland Range I have a Garland Range product and the age is unknown. It has some numbers that I can identify. One of these may be the model number: T8-11J 511-112-401 H284-24G (searching for this on google brings me to your page.) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=H284-24G&btnG=Search Not sure which of these numbers will be helpful but searching for the above nine digit number brings me to this site. PROBLEM: The pilot light on the OVEN has gone out and when I hold down the red button and light the pilot, it lights but once I let go of the red button the flame is immediately extinguished. I have called the 1800 number on the inside panel. They told me that I would have to disconnect the thermocouple and check it with a volt meter. I am thinking that the thermocouple is the IGNITOR??? where the pilot flame is burning. I am not sure where they are asking me to disconnect it. Should I turn off the natural gas while doing so? ... well, you see where I'm at. I am not sure what to do at this point except to order a thermocouple and maybe replace it. (at least when I get the thermocouple, I'll know what it is they are asking me to test with my meter.) I would have already had this fixed except there are no nearby service repair facilities within 75 miles that I could call for a simple repair/replacement. This range is used to cook and feed 75 people in a Nursing Home and is used all day every day. Any help you may have will be greatly appreciated. P.S. No offense but This search tool on your site seems to be useless! http://www.fixya.com/support/p16590-garland_h284_24g_kitchen_range Using the search tool on the right hand side of your site only gives me a couple of LapTop repair businesses several hundred miles away and in another country when I enter my zip code.

My response assumes that your stove doesn't have electronic ignition. I just got aquainted with a Garland H284-24GTH at my church. I had 2 reports from the women's groups using the oven.
Oven – 2 different issues reported
a) hard to light, especially right oven – I found the thermocouple on the right oven to be defective. Oven starts fine after I replaced it (hold override for approx 10 seconds until flame holds). The thermocouple is the steel rod that is heated by the pilot flame. Remove the skirt that covers the 2 red override buttons to access the other end of the thermocouple. Available at any good hardware store for around $10. Just be careful not to bend the brackets that hold the flame sensing end. On installation of new thermocouple, make the largest loop possible with any excess thermocouple wire & tuck it out of the way.
b) Gas smell when using oven – this oven has 7 pilot flames. 2 are in the ovens and are protected by thermocouples. If the thermocouples don’t feel the heat of a pilot flame, the gas regulators will not allow gas to flow to the burner bars or for that matter , to the pilot flames. 2 are under the griddle and 3 are on the stovetop (each pair of forward and rear burners share 1 pilot flame). These are unprotected- if the main gas valve is on, gas is flowing to these 5 pilot flames, lit or not. This explains the gas smell reports. We never lit these 5 flames. The church women turn off the main gas valve every time they're done using the oven. I found that the tap-offs for these 5 pilot flames have a screw to adjust the height of the pilot flame. This adjustment screw also seems to act as a shut-off for these pilots. Access to these pilot flame tap-offs is inder the skirt behind all the knobs. Just pull all the knobs straight out to remove. Put them on the stovetop directly above where you removed them so you know where they go. It's easy to see the pilot flame lines for the stovetops and griddle. The other 2 go down to the oven regulators. You'll see an adjustment screw on the fitting where these pilot flame lines go into the manifold directly behind the knobs. Turn clockwise = pilot flame gets smaller. Turn clockwise until it bottoms out = pilot flame off. Turn counter-clockwise = pilot flame gets bigger.

I have a garland and my pilots won't stay lit. I was told to hold the red button for about a minute, then release and the pilot should stay lit. What I learned from experience was that basically the small steel rod that sticks out in front of the pilot flame needs to be hot in order for it to allow the gas to stay on... The thermocoupler is probably what this is called. Since it's awkward to hold the red button, what I do to to light the oven is hold a barbecue lighter on the thermocoupler until I think it's hot, hit the red button, light the pilot, let go of the red button and unless I didn't get it hot enough, the pilot stays lit and I can turn on the gas and start the oven. Unfortunately my problem has become that once I turn the oven off, the pilot won't stay lit so I need to do this every time I use the oven which is a pain. Good luck!
