no gas flow sounds like a bad gas regulato on the stove. as for the 5 year old ge profile with ignitors not working, you need a part called a spark modual

There is nothing fancy about how the gas controls work on this unit. Do all burners give you the same problem? If so, it could be a kinked service hose or a service valve that has been partly shut. If it is limited to a single burner or two, the valve may be gummed up and should be replaced.

th to replaceere is also an electronic ignitor in the back of the stove that sends the spark to the burners, if they light with a match , then I would check out the back for a little black box

I took over a kitchen which has the garland grill don't know the model number because the previous owner lost the manual for it and i can't find any marking on the equipment. It's an older model where i...


if its gas then it wouldnt be a pilot it would be an ignitor remove top lower heat shield or look from bottom either way one way or another you have to be able to get to the ignitor and perform an ampere test on the ignitor should be drawing 3-3.3 amps any less then this and you would have to replace the ignitor yes at 2.9 you should also replace the ignitor because it would take longer to light the gas making your cooking take longer and the oven not heat properly as well if you have any further questions message me back and Thanks again Rick

Converting it back to Natural Gas what I sdone to convert oven area


Usually the oven has an adjustable orifice. For natural gas you want to turn the brass orifice counter clockwise ( out ) to increase the gas flow. Start with a few turns and keep testing till flame is high enough. NO Yellow in the flame..... that is too much gas. The orifice takes a 1/2" wrench. Also make sure the appliance regulator is set for natural.

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.

My Weber natural gas grill doesn't get as hot as it used to.


Check the gas valve. This will cause a decrease in gas pressure and would explain all your symptoms that you are having. Check it with a volt meter and your should read 120 volts

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

Westinghouse self cleaning oven manual or owners manual


Many White-Westinghouse manuals can be found here: http://www.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp I had the same problem and was able to solve it. They didn't have the exact manual for mine (a KF450G), but they had one that was similar enough (KF580H) to solve this issue. Setting the knobs to clean is only part of the process, to get it to run you need to set the timer. Read the key information below transcribed from the manual: --- To set the controls for the cleaning cycle: 1) Close the oven door. 2) Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day. 3) Be sure the Start Time knob is set for the same time as the clock. If not, turn the knob to the time on the clock. The knob will then pop out. 4) Push in and set the Stop Time knob for 2 to 3 hours past the Start Time. Example: If the Start Time and Clock read 1:00, set the Stop Time for 3:00 or 4:00. 5) Turn the Temperature Control to CLEAN. 6) Turn the Selector to CLEAN. If all controls are set correctly, the oven signal light will come on and stay on until the oven reaches its cleaning temperature. It will then cycle on and off. --- There is more information in the manual, but it's much too much information to manually transcribe - I've only typed enough for you to get it working. Note that the LOCKED light won't light initially, it only lights once the oven exceeds 550 degrees. Once that light is on, the oven will not reopen until the temperature drops below that point, even if you stop the clean cycle. Be sure to empty out the storage drawer under the oven before cleaning.
