Hello - need help quick!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I just found this site yesterday - looks to be very helpful and informative. I do have a pressing question - we just installed a Royal Range yesterday in our small commercial kitchen in what once was a house. (We have a gourmet take out joint) Bought it new and didn't get any type of manual and I do not have commercial kitchen equipment experience. Can I manually turn on stovetop burners as I need them? It became so hot in the kitchen by the end of the day and I was a nervous wreck to leave all those flames on all night that we switched off the main gas valve before we left. And what about the oven pilot? It's a 36" 6 burner cooktop and gas oven. Thank you in advance!!

yes you can. However, the burners will typically relight the pilots for the burners, no big deal, you want them lit anyway. I would light the pilot for the stove too. You can keep shutting off the main gas line every night and just relight the pilots in the morning, it does save a bit on the old gas bill too. Worked at a place 3 years ago and turning on the main gas for the line and firing up everything was first on the list.

Thank you -- I can relax now! 6 burners is a bit intimidating (and such a big flame) - I found myself standing in the middle of the kitchen yesterday, arms folded, just staring it down! One more learning curve -- but I will continue with my "fearless in the kitchen" motto! Thanks again.

Is this the one....http://www.royalranges.com/36_Range.pdf....perhaps download for future reference.

 

Its safest to shut off the main line at night but this one has safety shutoff valve on the oven pilot so you can do meringues & such over night if you must...if you have the same one!

Pick up the burners and stove top. You will see pilots and the small gas line that feeds them there should be adjustment screws on these lines. Turn them usually clockwise till they turn off the lit pilot. I am not familiar with Royal brand but most of others work like this. NOTE..... It is not safe to keep turning on and off the main because someone will forget one night.

Yes, that is the one. Thanks - found the adjustment screws (right next to the knobs) per Ed's post. So maybe I could just turn off the cooktop pilots at night so I would not have to relight the main pilot for the oven each day. I swear this beast could heat the whole house in the winter with just the pilots alone! I'm sure I'll be used to it in a week.   Any opinions about turning off cooktop pilots and leaving the oven pilot on?
