Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range
We bought the house with an oven left behind. Probably because it was too big to move. It's got 6 top burners, double ovens and a grill top/broiler on the upper right. It was left with no paperwork so trying to figure out this question. It has 11 gas lights that burn continually and in the summer it warms up the kitchen and makes some days quite hot to be in there, besides making us kind of nervous since one of the pilot lights goes out occassionally and has to be relit. This must be a commercial stove that the previous owner installed and probably isn't allowed these days in a house. Can this be somehow converted over to a switch or system that would allow us to just turn on the gas to the oven when we are going to use it, and otherwise keep it off? This may be a stupid question but I don't understand how this oven works and gas makes me nervous. Thanks!
We use a Garland from the 1960's and pilot lights ARE scary and should make you nervous. This is why they are no longer allowed in new gas ranges. I mounted an inline gas shut off to the stove where the gas enters (on mine this is right in front on the left side). It turns on and off like a burner and when we are done cooking we simply shut off the gas there. To light the burners or the stove I use one of those long reach lighters. I go to bed knowing that NO gas is coming in.
We love the stove, it makes cooking more fun.

Hi garland owners..
I am a gas technician, to answer some of your questions, the pilots on your burners and griddle can be shut off by turning the screws in that are next to the knobs, this will shut off the gas supply to the pilots and you can light them manually with a lighter stick, just light the lighter then turn on the burner. For the oven the most likely problem with it not lighting is the thermocouple, it is relatively easy to replace and any good hardware store should stock one. If you are not comfortable with working on these issues your local propane company should be able to help you.

I have the same Garland. Yes, it does feel warm all the time, but in the winter it keeps the kitchen cozy warm! If the pilots are kept clean, and the gas is regulated properly there is no problem. Don't be nervous, you can always smell when a pilot is not lit.
