Oven Stove Top Combination (Propane) Instructions

 

Note: While lighting a manual pilot system, sufficient time must be allowed for the proper pilot flame to heat the thermocouple that will hold the safety valve open. If lighting for the first time, allow some time for air to be purged from the gas distribution system.

To Light the China Hat Pilots (Open Top Burners):

  1. The main gas valve should be “OFF” for at least five minutes to allow any accumulated gas to escape the combustion chamber.
  2. Remove spider rings, open top grates, and locate the Pilots.
  3. Turn supply gas “ON” and hold match close to the pilot head. The pilot should light.
  4. Turn the manual gas control to the “ON” position. The main burners should light.

To turn the China Hat Pilots Off:

  1. Turn the supply gas control to the “OFF” position and ensure all burners are off.

Note: Pilots cannot be shut off unless the main gas supply to the appliance is shut off.

To Light the Oven Pilot:

  1. Remove the lower kick panel below the oven door. Open oven door and remove the oven rack. Remove oven bottom.
  2. The Robertshaw Grayson TS11J safety valve should be closed for at least five minutes to allow any accumulated gas to escape the combustion chamber.
  3. Turn the thermostat to the lowest possible setting.
  4. Depress and hold down the red button while lighting the pilot. Hold the button down for about 45 seconds.
  5. Release the reset button. The pilot should stay lit.
  6. Set the thermostat to the desired temperature. The main burners should light.

To Turn Off the Oven Pilot:

  1. Turn the thermostat to the lowest possible setting.
  2. Blow out pilot. The safety valve will automatically shut off the gas supply system.

To Light the Griddle, Griddle/Broiler Pilot (Thermostatically Controlled Griddles)

For units that are equipped with a thermostatically controlled Griddle, proceed as follows:

  1. The Robertshaw Grayson TS11J safety valve should be closed for at least five minutes to allow any accumulated gas to escape the combustion chamber.
  2. Turn the thermostat to the lowest possible setting.
  3. Depress and hold down the red button while lighting the pilot. Hold the button down for about 45 seconds.
  4. Release the reset button. The pilot should stay lit.
  5. Set the thermostat to the desired temperature. The main burners should light.

To Turn the Griddle & Griddle/Broiler Pilot Off:

  1. Turn the thermostat to the lowest possible setting.
  2. Blow out pilot. The safety valve will automatically shut off the gas supply system.

To Light a Standing Pilot (Manually Controlled Griddles)

  1. The main gas control valve should be “OFF” for at least five minutes to allow any accumulated gas to escape the combustion chamber.
  2. Sight pilot head through the pilot sight hole on front of apron.
  3. Turn on the main gas and hold a match close to the pilot head. The pilot should light.
  4. Turn the manual gas control to the “ON” position. The main burners should light.

To Turn the Standing Pilot Off:

  1. Turn the manual gas control to the “OFF” position and ensure all burners are off.

Troubleshooting Chart

Problem Probable Cause Possible Solution
Appliance will not ignite No gas, air in gas line, or improper gas line supply Ensure gas is turned on. Purge air from gas line. Ensure piping will supply adequate pressure.
Pilots will not light Pilot valve is shut off, fans or air drafts interfering with pilot operation, improper pilot adjustment, bad or weak thermocouple, bad or weak electromechanical head in safety valve Locate and adjust pilot. Locate and eliminate air drafts. Have a technician test the thermocouple. Test safety valve with a turn down test.
Yellow flame or yellow tipped flame on burners Lack of primary air supply, improper pressure Thoroughly clean and/or adjust air shutter. Check and adjust manifold pressure: Check orifice drill size, ensure gas stream enters center of mixing tube, and check mixing tube for obstructions.
Orange flame Dirt and/or dust are being carried through burner ports Clean inside burner and burner ports with small brush and blow out burner with air (correction needed only in exceptional cases)
Flame lifts above burner ports Too much primary air, improper manifold pressure Reduce the amount of primary air. Check and adjust manifold pressure: Check for proper orifice drill size.
