Question about Vulcan 36LC Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Vulcan double gas oven does not ignite. A clicking sound can be heard. It seems it is trying to light. Today the top oven worked for several hours then died again. I checked the connections and they all seem clean and tight. The bottom oven works fine.

Your hearing the clicking sound as the module selay attempts to send the spark shich more then likely its doing just it isnt getting there. locate the ignitor in the oven (same ones you cleaned and tightened) yo will notice a wire connecting to it (or a few :p), trace them cack to the main module. just follow the wires as the run back to the module in the back. now see whee those wires connect on the module board, clip them peal them ,reolder them back in that same place.

If that fails the only possible other cause is the module board, you will need to replace it.

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir


older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

How do you light the oven? We turn the dial and


I take it the range is electric ignition because you say the top burners have a clicking(igniter) noise. If the top burners are electric ignition then the oven is also. The oven probably uses a hot surface igniter and that is why you do not hear any clicking. Turn the oven on and open the broiler compartment. You should see a bright glow from the hot surface igniter. If you do not see any glow there may be a grounding issue or the igniter could be bad. If you do see a glow but the burner does not come on in a few minutes then give the gas valve a tap with a wrench and see if the burner comes on. Shut it off and then back on several times. If the burner continues to light after this you may have fixed the problem. If it does not come on gas valve could be sticking or igniter is weak.

Oven Won't light anymore


when your oven was working did it "click" to start? or do you have a glow bar style ignitor. if yo u have a glow bar ignitor chances are thats the issue. if your oven would click to light then there might be a few issues on that but just like you top burners you should be able to light the oven with a long match and or barbecue lighter

Double oven willnot light


Peace,
ngafm at your service,

It sounds like a bad igniter in that oven or a bad gas valve restricting the gas flow in that particular oven.

Unfortunately this will require hands on service!

How old is this wall oven?

Please give me a good rating before you sign of!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

Ignitor problem?


if you remove the 2 screws on the right and left bottom plate and open the door and youll see 2 screws that panel will come off turn the oven on and you should see 2 burners on both sides and they should ignite.if they do and go right out you could have 2 problems.when the burners light they hit a probe called a flame sense.this probe plugs into a heat board and if the board doesnt sense the flame you will get a red no ignition light.clean the probes that sit right on the burners with sandpaper and see what happens,if that doesnt work if the unit has pilots clean the pilot orfice and if that doesnt work the heat board may be bad.how old is the unit?
