That particular socket may have a bad bulb contact or some loose wiring, which causes the bulb to blow. Unplug the lighting part of the range, remove the bulb and with a flash light inspect the interior of the bulb holder. If it appears corroded or dirty, clean it with a Q Tip sprayed lightly with WD40. Also, gently shake the holder if you can, to determine if it is loose. If it's loose, it should be replaced. Also, when you replace bulbs, make sure you are using ones that are designated as Appliance Bulbs. They can withstand heat and cold better than regular household bulbs.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

    Sorry, I misread your problem. If the pilot continues to go out, the Thermocouple for that Pilot is failing and needs to be replaced. I apologize for the confusion.

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

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.

I have a 6 burner Vulcan stove with a bad oven pilot light.


Hi! I have the same problem with one of my burners (I have a morice range). I changed the thermocouple, but it didn´t help. I contacted Morice in France and was told that the problem most sertainly was the coil inside the gasvalve. I don´t know if it possible to dismantle the ovengasvalve to check the coil. As for a burner valve, one should open the valve at the end were the gas goes out to the burner to locate this coil. Best of luck Lars?ui=2&ik=305879aaef&view=att&th=1244dff9c340942f&attid=0.1&disp=thd&zw

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.
