KEEP THIS MANUAL FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
GENERAL
Vulcan ranges and ovens are produced with quality workmanship and material. Proper installation,
usage and maintenance of your range will result in many years of satisfactory performance.
The manufacturer suggests that you thoroughly read this entire manual and carefully follow all of the
instructions provided.
A rating plate is located on the lower left-hand corner of the front frame behind the bellcrank. The rating
plate states the model number, serial number and type of gas the range requires.
Motors in Vulcan convection ovens are permanently lubricated and require no additional maintenance.
Should it be necessary to disconnect the gas line strain relief at the rear of the range in order to perform
service procedures, turn off the gas supply before disconnection. Reconnect the strain relief before
turning the gas supply on and returning the range(s) to their installation position.

Open Top Burner Pilot Adjustments
Tools: Standard screwdriver.
After pilot is lit, turn the open top burner(s) ON. Adjust the flame if necessary. To adjust, rotate the pilot
valve adjustment screw provided on the manifold pipe. Turn the burner ON; burner flame should appear
on the burner head within a second. Rotate the screw clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to
increase the flame.
Check the open top burner nozzle relationship. The burner nozzle should enter approximately 1/4"
inside the burner venturi (Fig. 2).
Fig. 2
Hot Top and Griddle Top Pilot Adjustments
Tools: Standard flat blade screwdriver.
After pilot is lit, adjust the burner flame, if necessary, by rotating the adjustment screw of the pilot valve
located on the manifold pipe. Turn the burner ON; burner flame should appear on the burner head
within a second. Rotate adjustment screw clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase the
flame.
Oven Adjustments
Tools: Standard flat blade screwdriver.
There are two different adjustments to check for in the oven section: pilot safety, and bypass.
1. Pilot Safety Adjustment
With control panel cover removed, light the oven pilot as explained in the oven lighting instructions.
If pilot goes out, increase the pilot safety adjustment until the flame completely engulfs the safety
device sensing bulb. The safety adjustment screw is located on the safety control below the red
button.
2. Bypass Flame Adjustment (Oven and Thermostatically Controlled Griddle)
This adjustment must be made at time of range installation.
- 12 -
Ignite oven/griddle burner pilot. With oven/griddle cold, turn the thermostat dial slowly clockwise
until main burner gas is heard snapping ON. Remove the dial. With a screwdriver, turn the bypass
adjustment screw (Fig’s. 3 & 4) counterclockwise to increase the bypass flame, or clockwise to
decrease it, until flame over the entire burner is approximately 1/8" high. The bypass adjustment
screw is located to the left-hand side of the thermostat control for the oven section, and on top of
the thermostat control for the griddle. After adjustment has been made, replace dial.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL RECALIBRATION
Standard Oven
Field recalibration is seldom necessary and should not be resorted to unless experience with cooking
results definitely proves that the control is not maintaining set temperature. To check oven temperatures
when recalibrating, use a Robertshaw Test Instrument or a reliable mercury oven thermometer.
1. Place thermocouple of test instrument or thermometer in the middle of the oven. Close oven door.
2. Light main burner.
- 13 -
3. Turn dial to any temperature setting and allow oven to heat until flame cuts down to bypass. Let
cycle several times.
4. After burner has been on sufficiently long enough to cut down the bypass flame, check oven
temperature. Recalibrate the control if your reading is not within 15°F of the dial setting. If
recalibration is required, proceed as follows:
5. Remove dial.
6. With a screwdriver, loosen the two calibration screws (Fig. 5) until calibration plate moves
independently of the control.
7. Turn calibration plate until mark corresponding to test instrument or thermometer reading is in line
with center of pointer "A" (Fig. 5), and while holding in this position, tighten calibration screws firmly.
8. Replace dial.
9. If above adjustment is prevented by the two loosened calibration screws being in contact with the
ends of the screw clearance slots in the calibration plate, remove the screws, and after turning the
calibration plate to the proper location, reassemble screws in the other tapped holes designed for
them.
Fig. 5
Convection Oven
1. Place thermocouple of test instrument in middle of oven. Close oven door.
2. Light the main burner by turning thermostat dial to any temperature setting.
3. Allow oven to heat until flame cuts off. After several cycles, check temperature. If the temperature
does not read within 15°F of the dial setting, recalibrate as follows:
4. Pull dial straight off dial shaft without turning (Fig. 6).
5. Turn screw "A" clockwise to decrease temperature and counterclockwise to increase temperature
(Fig. 6); 1/4 turn of Screw "A" represents a temperature shift of 35°F.

Cleaning
To clean limiting orifice (Fig. 7), turn gas supply to range OFF. Disconnect pilot tubing at the pilot burner
body. The orifice is then accessible at the body end of the pilot burner and can be removed for cleaning.
Clean spud, taking care not to enlarge the orifice hole.
Fig. 7
Service Instructions (Fig. 8)
1. If valve fails to open with good pilot flame impingement, replace valve.
2. Do not remove interrupter valve for field service. Make certain gas line to inlet of control is purged
of air and that gas flow is available at this point.

Thermostatically Controlled Griddle Recalibration
Field recalibration is seldom necessary and should not be resorted to unless cooking results definitely
prove that griddle surface temperature and thermostat setting do not agree. To check griddle
temperature, use an accurate "surface temperature thermometer" in the following manner.
1. Locate thermometer in center of griddle from front to rear: on 17" wide units, use one thermometer
and center from side to side; on 34" wide units, use two thermometers, one 81/2" from each side of
the griddle.
2. Set thermostat dial to any temperature and allow griddle to heat thoroughly. When the griddle is
completely heated and the burner is on bypass gas, check the thermometer reading against the
thermostat dial setting. If the difference between the readings exceeds 15°F, the thermostat should
be recalibrated. Example: With the thermostat dial at 400°F and a thermometer reading of less than
385°F or more than 415°F, the thermostat should be recalibrated.
Recalibrate as follows:
1. Make note of number of degrees thermostat is off.
2. Remove thermostat dial and loosen calibration screws (Fig. 9) until plate moves freely.
3. Turn calibration plate the required number of degrees counterclockwise if the thermometer reading
was higher than the dial setting, or clockwise if the thermometer reading was lower than the dial
setting. The number of degrees between letters on the calibration plate is 50°F.
4. Hold calibration plate in desired position and tighten plate screws firmly.
