Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range

60" double oven gas Garland stove

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!

    cannot light the oven pilot

    Our Church has the same Garland stove described!!



    My problem is trying to get anyone who repairs/refurbishes these stoves.



    All of the six top burners work fine as does one of the ovens.



    The white ceramic pieces under the gridle are broken.

    Someone told me that the thermal copler may be the reason the other oven doesn't work.

    This site is my best hope, it seems to get in touch with someone here in Connecticut who might service this piece of equipment.



    Any tips you might provide will be greatly appriciated!

    Our leftmost griddle pilot goes out frequently and we have had to have the ovens pilots replaced 2 or 3 ttimes in the 20 years since we installed the stove new. My wife has the same complaint regarding the pilots always being on. This is OK during the fall winter and spring since the BTU's go into heating the kitchen. However, she complains about all the gas she wastes. Can this range be converted over to electronic pilots?

    We have a very similar situation....wonderful Garland 6 burner stove with a pilot light out on 1 set of burners....faint smell of gas. Can we just simply relight that pilot light....or is that dangerous?

    Also wondering who services these stoves in St. Paul, MN (or Minneapolis)

    thanks for any help!!! Mary

    We have the same stove, we purchased it new over 30 years ago, with the price of fuel going up, we just turned of the pilots and use a barbecue lighter whenever we need to turn on the gas.

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.
Good Luck!

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.

I have a K/A kgst307 gas stove that was bought new as a natural gas unit. After 3 years, I moved to a house that had propane. NO PROBLEM because an LP conversions kit came with the stove. Used the stove on...


Although the natural gas orifices for the stove top burners were replaceable with propane orifices, many ovens/broilers orifices are simply adjustable using a 1/2" open end wrench to convert from one gas to another. Some brands are adjustable and some have to be changed out. It depends on the make and model. Do you have your owner's manual? It contains detailed info on converting your unit. I included a link below to choose from the list to download your manual. You'll need your exact model # listed on your stove. Pull out the bottom drawer and look at the data plate for the model # and then find it on the list for the correct manual. Douglas

Neither the oven nor the broiler burners will light. In both cases, the igniter glows, but no gas to the burner.


UNLESS DOUBLE OVEN THE BROILER BURNER HEATS THE OVEN. AND THERE WOULD ONLY BE ONE IGNITER. WHICH IS PROBABLY DEFECTIVE AS THAT IS A COMMON PROBLEM WHEN USING IGNITER.

Burners ignite but wont light


Are you on Natural Gas or LP?

If on LP, you may need to change the jets on the burners on top. Most times, when oven and broiler work and top doesn't, and you have spark, your jets are wrong size. Look on back of unit for a cardboard attached to unit, should have jets stuck to cardboard, if notgo to store where you bought unit and buy jets.

DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat


This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

Ovens won't work.. pilot safeties keep dying..


Hi, just wanted to ask, are you sure the safety valves are bad? seems strange that 2 would go bad like that. I have seen thermocouples ( $7 to $12 ) improperly installed,routed, not an OEM part,dirty pilots, affect them alot more often than a bad safety ($150 to $250). There is no baffle plate behind the safety, however, if mounted properly, it should be well out of any heat range that would be causing any problems. Are you sure it isn't "front venting" ? meaning the exhaust, or part of it, has to escape out of the front of the unit, causing it to overheat? this can be caused by a few things, something blocking,covering,in the flue. Your gas pressure too high, or no regulator at all, sooting, clogged orfice causing gas to burn in the burner, alignment of orfice to burner, etc.. Hope all that helps, let us know :)

No manual


The light bulb is the oven light.
The snowflake with 3 raindrops is Defrost Mode (fan runs with no heat to reduce defrost time)
The 2 lines up top & down bottom is Traditional Cooking (heat from top & bottom elements)
The big circle with a fan is the Fan forced Oven
The small line at top only is the Grill Mode
The larger line at top only is the Double Grill Mode
The line up top with the fan underneath is Double Grill with Fan mode
The line on the bottom with fan on top uses the lower element with the fan for delicate dishes

The manual can be found on the Baumatic website - www.baumatic.com.au - select your product which takes you into another page & you will see on the left hand side a link to "View User Manual"

I have a double gas oven and no instructions


I have an O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas stove. The model number is 72 7242 23. The upper oven is about the size of a large microwave and sits above the range burners. The lower (full-size) oven is below the burner unit and includes a broiler draw below it.
So, when you say, double oven, I wonder if you are just talking about the main oven with broiler drawer (both of which are below the burner unit.)

Mine was a builder-supplied appliance in the new house we purchased in 1986. The upper oven has never performed very well. And, yes the upper oven can only be used for baking.

I have an instruction manual for it, but it doesn't provide that much information. Getting parts for it is extremely difficult, since Tappan is no longer manufacturing this brand. (I've been trying to locate a flat oven ignitor for the upper oven and can't seem to find a replacement that's the same 6-1/3" length.) In the 1980s Tappan apparently purchased O'Keefe & Merritt and marketed this brand for several years. Models originally manufactured by O'Keefe & Merritt in the 1930s-1950s are considered collectible antique stoves!
