                                                                          ENG-0019 Rev.B
SAFETY AND INSTALLATION

Some Force 10 Galley Range models are specifically equipped to burn Propane Gas,
while other models are equipped to use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Propane and
CNG are not interchangeable fuels. It is therefore important to ensure that the model you
have selected is the correct one for the type of fuel system you intend to use. If natural gas
is used in a propane stove the burner flames will be inadequate for cooking. If propane is
used in a stove fitted for CNG, burner flames will be unacceptably and dangerously high.

Recommended installations for both propane and CNG systems are outlined in this
manual. Follow only the instructions that are applicable to your specific model of Galley
Range. If, at some future date, you want to convert your propane or CNG range to the
other fuel, a conversion kit can be obtained from Force 10. The model and serial number
of your range are required to obtain the correct kit.

Propane and natural gas are excellent and convenient galley fuels if used in accordance
with the installation and safety procedures listed in this manual. If these procedures are
ignored, there is a danger of fire and explosion. We have done our best to design and
construct your Gourmet Galley Range to be the safest marine galley range available. You
can do your part to ensure safety by following these installation and testing procedures.

All valves (both tank and solenoid) must be closed when the boat is unattended. They
must also be closed immediately in any emergency. Force 10 recommends that manual
cylinder valves be closed while appliances are not in operation.

Gas Pressures

Propane gas pressures can vary depending on country of origin. This may necessitate a
change to your propane tank regulator and a need to adapt your galley range to the new
pressure. The following is a list of Orifices/By Pass and Propane pressures available.

Application     Gas             Pressure                  Orifice Size (mm) / By Pass (mm)

Our Galley Ranges are built for North American propane pressure and orifice sizes,
unless ordered otherwise. Adapter kits are available from Force 10.

Propane and Butane (LPG) Fuel System

PAGE 2                  Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
** Follow these instructions for propane model Galley Ranges only

1. Buy your cylinder, gauge, master solenoid valve and hose from a reputable marine
   dealer, or your local LPG service center. Do not use unreliable or worn-out
   equipment.

We specifically recommend that only a high quality regulator be used with your Force 10
  Galley Range. It must be set at 12" water column. A higher pressure could result in a
  dangerously high flame setting. If you question the quality or pressure setting of the
  regulator, please have it inspected by your local LPG service center.

2. Locate the cylinder and regulator in a housing vented to the open air (preferably on
   the deck or cabin top) isolated from the hull interior by a vapor tight enclosure.

Propane is heavier than air. It can therefore accumulate at the bottom of enclosed
   compartments despite the provision of overhead ventilation. To allow it to safely
   drain overboard, the housing in which the cylinder is installed must be vented at the
   bottom. A pipe or hose of at least 1" (25mm) i.d. running on a downward slope to an
   outlet on the hull exterior is ideal. Position the vent above the water line, and at least
   two feet from any hull opening to the boat interior or engine exhaust.

We recommend the installation of a vapor monitor on your boat with all propane fueled
  devices.

3. Propane is a two-phase (liquid/vapor) fuel, and only vapor withdrawal from the tank
   is safe. Firmly mount the cylinder, right side up, to ensure that liquid withdrawal does
   not occur.

4. We recommend that a solenoid valve, which can be controlled by a switch located in
   your cabin, be installed next to the manual cylinder valve. The cylinder valve outlet
   and the 9 or 12 VDC solenoid valve should be clean and dry when they are connected
   to each other.

Unnecessary attempts to seal this connection with substances like pipe dope or Teflon
   tape can result in the introduction of foreign materials into the system that can plug
   the tiny appliance orifices.

5. Tighten the solenoid valve to the cylinder valve outlet properly. Use a 7/8" (22mm) or
   adjustable wrench - not a pair of pliers - and apply approximately 50 ft-lbs. (68Nm) of
   torque.

6. A 0-300 psi (0-20 bar) pressure gauge should be installed next to the solenoid valve
   on its downstream side. Again, the fittings should be clean and dry. It is not necessary
   to use pipe dope or Teflon tape for these connections.

                                           Gourmet Galley Range Manual              Page 3
                                                                            ENG-0019 Rev.B
7. Install the regulator downstream from the pressure gauge with its vent port pointing
   downward, which prevents spray or deck wash from entering the fuel system.




                         Recommended LPG System Installation

** In some cases the solenoid valve is installed on the low pressure side of the system
    (i.e. after the LPG regulator). See solenoid manufacturers' instructions for proper
    installation.

1. Starting from the propane tank itself, the fuel line attachments should occupy the
   following positions: (a) the tank shut-off valve, (b) the solenoid valve, (c) the pressure
   gauge, (d) the regulator, and (e) the range itself.

2. Affix the caution label plate supplied with your Galley Range in the immediate
   vicinity of the gas cylinder in a place where it will be plainly visible.

3. If the range is a gimbaled model, the gas supply line should be a flexible, fire-resistant
   hose, UL/CGA approved for use with propane systems, with 3/8" (10mm) forged
   female flare nuts machined crimped on each end.

If your range is a built-in style, you should use either soft copper tubing or a UL/CGA
    approved gas hose with 3/8" (10mm) forged female flare nuts machine crimped onto
    each end.

Because every connection is a potential leak, the fuel line should be one continuous
   length of hose or tubing. Do not make a "T" off ant fuel line between an existing
   appliance and the gas cylinder to feed another appliance. (You may install a "T"
   connection only within the fuel tank's enclosure, so any leakage is contained.)



PAGE 4                 Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
4. Be sure you do not kink the hose or piping connecting the regulator with the range by
   bending it too sharply during installation - remember that the pressure (North
   American) on the downstream side of the regulator is less than .433 psi (28 mbar).

5. Protect the hose against vibration and damage by securing it tightly to bulkheads and
   hull side with non-corrosive ties or clamps which will not cut, abrade or pinch it.

On gimbaled models, the last two feet (60 cm) of the downstream end of the hose should
   be unattached to bulkheads or the hull side to allow the range to swing freely on its
   gimbals.

6. Fuel lines must be protected by close-fitting grommets and sealants where they pass
   through decks or bulkheads, and the passage must be made vapor-tight. They should
   be installed so that they are readily accessible to inspection.



Natural Gas (CNG) Fuel System
** Follow these instructions for natural gas model Galley Range ONLY.

1. Buy your cylinder, gauge, regulator and fuel line from a reputable marine dealer, or
   your local CNG service station. Do not use unreliable or worn-out equipment.

2. Choose the location for the CNG cylinder away from any potential fire hazards, such
   as a gasoline-fueled engine, a hot manifold or exhaust riser. Should the CNG cylinder
   be adjacent to a fire and the safety valve rupture disc reaches 212 F (100 C) and
   3775 psi, the disc will rupture and the gas contained in the cylinder will add to the fire
   already in progress.

3. As CNG is always a vapor, all CNG cylinders are designed without a relief valve.

4. The CNG cylinder(s) should be securely mounted, either vertically or horizontally,
   out of the way in an accessible area for easy operation of the CNG cylinder valve,
   observation of the CNG cylinder pressure gauge and the removal of the CNG
   cylinder.

5. As each CNG cylinder contains less thermal energy than two gallons of alcohol or
   kerosene fuel, but without their potential hazard of liquid leaks or spillage into the
   bilge, the CNG cylinder may be located in the area of the boat which would be
   suitable for the location of a pressurized alcohol or kerosene tank. See American Boat
   and Yacht Council Safety Standards for Small Craft, Section A-22 for
   recommendations covering CNG.

   (410) 956-2737.

NOTE: By law, the CNG cylinder valve outlet fitting with its protective cap and chain,
  and the regulator system nut, Have left-hand threads. The cap and nuts are so
  marked with a slot.

6. The CNG cylinder valve outlet fitting does not require pipe dope or Teflon tape and
   should be clean and dry when attached to the regulation system nut to keep foreign
   materials out of the system.

7. Use a crescent wrench to tighten the regulation system nut to the CNG cylinder and
   valve connection. Tighten the nut as you would a welding tank or CO2 cylinder, using
   approximately 50 ft-lbs. (68Nm) of torque.

8. If the CNG cylinder(s) is to be located on deck or exposed to water spray, point the
   regulation system so that water cannot run into the second stage (gray) regulator vent
   or into the body of the pressure gauge.

9. If the CNG cylinder(s) is to be located inside a cabin, enclosed in a lazarette hatch, or
   in an area with little ventilation, you must supply ample overhead ventilation in case
   of a leak or regulator malfunction.

10. Affix the caution label supplied with your Galley Range in the immediate vicinity of
    the cylinder in a place where it will be plainly visible.

11. The fuel line must be a type recommended for natural gas. This line may be purchased
    through any of the natural gas dealers in the US If you have any problems or questions
    regarding the fuel line or fuel system, contact:

1. Push approved CNG hose onto the barbed brass fitting on the CNG outlet connection
   on the regulation system. Be sure the hose goes on all the way to the plastic guard.
   CNG hose seals well when it is pushed over the proper size barbed fitting - hose
   clamps are unnecessary and should not be used.




                         Recommended CNG System Installation



2. Run the hose from the CNG regulation system to the appliance with 6" minimum
   radius turns, so the hose does not kink and cut off or reduce the fuel supply causing
   unsatisfactory operation of the range. Note: Fuel pressure is less than .217 psi (15
   mbar).

3. Use only continuous lengths of hose from the regulation system to the appliance with
   no tees or splices. Keep the number of fittings to an absolute minimum. Every
   connection is a potential leak!

4. Keep hose away from heat or abrasion. Use plastic ties or clamps to secure the hose to
   the boat structure or bulkheads. Fuel lines must be protected by close-fitting
   grommets and sealant where they pass through decks or bulkheads, and the passage
   must be made vapor-tight.

5. They should be installed so that they are readily accessible to inspection.

Fuel System Testing (LPG & CNG)

Test your fuel system for leaks each time the cylinder supply valve(s) are opened for
appliance use. Use the following procedure for the test.

                                          Gourmet Galley Range Manual             Page 7
                                                                          ENG-0019 Rev.B
First, close all range burner valves by turning the controls to the OFF position. Next,
open the manual cylinder and solenoid valves and make a note of the reading on the
pressure gauge. Now close the manual cylinder valve. The pressure should remain
constant for at least 10 minutes. If it does not, gas is leaking out of the system.

The leak(s) should be located by applying a mixture of liquid of detergent and water to all
connections and other suspect points and checking for bubbles. Do not attempt to locate
leaks by using an open flame. Repair and re-test the system before putting it into
operation.

Galley Range Installation - General

1. Before installing your range, fill out the Warranty Registration Form that is printed on
   the last page of this manual and send it back to Force 10 within 10 days of purchase.
   Keep your model and serial numbers handy, as they will be required when ordering
   parts or requesting assistance.

2. Do not locate cabinet storage units or any combustible surfaces at any point directly
   above the range.

3. Force 10 recommends a 30" (75 cm) clearance between the range top and any
   unprotected combustible cabin top or bulkhead. This clearance may be reduced to a
   20" (50cm) minimum if the overhead combustible surface is shielded with at least
   1/4" (6mm) thick flame-retardant millboard topped with not less than No. 28 MSG
   sheet steel, 0.015" thick stainless steel, 0.024" thick aluminum, or 0.020" thick
   copper.

4. Gas consumes oxygen in the process of combustion. For this reason it is essential to
   ventilate any enclosure in which you plan to use your Galley Range. We recommend
   that at least nine square inches of fresh air ventilation be provided in the vicinity of
   the range.

5. Your Galley Range is equipped with a thermocouple device that will automatically
   turn off the gas supply within 15 seconds to any burner that might be accidentally
   extinguished. Force 10 specifically warns that your range should not be used as a
   cabin or space heater.



PAGE 8                 Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
Force 10 manufactures a cabin heater specifically designed for the purpose of heating
   living space which is equipped with: (a) an oxygen depletion sensor which will
   automatically turn off the gas supply if the oxygen level in the cabin should fall more
   than 5% below the normal level, and (b) a stack to exhaust combustion-produced
   water vapor and carbon dioxide, which would otherwise saturate the air and create a
   humid "greenhouse" atmosphere in the cabin interior (extreme condensation around
   portholes, hatches, and on the exposed side is the usual sign). For functional reasons,
   these features - essential to the safe and comfortable operation of a cabin space heater
   - are not incorporated into the Galley Range.

6. The hinged burner grill and frame structure at the top of your range will become very
   hot during operation of the range top burners - do not attempt to swing up or lift it
   without wearing oven mitts. Keep children and pets away from the range when it is
   hot.

7. The whole range (including the oven door) becomes hot when the oven is being
   operated. The top portion of the back of the range becomes very hot during oven
   operation. Do not contact it with unprotected skin.

8. Always keep a Class ABC fire extinguisher mounted close by your Galley Range.
   Grease fires should be extinguished by smothering them with baking soda, or by using
   the ABC Class fire extinguisher.




Gimbaled Models
** This section applies only to models designed for suspension from gimbal bolts.

Be sure to install the gimbal wall brackets so that your range will hang in the desired
position in relation to both countertops and adjacent cabinets or bulkheads. For 3 or 4
burner models, there should be at least 1" (25mm) clearance between the back of the
range and the nearest wall or bulkhead to allow free gimbal action. For 2 burner models,
4 1/2" (12cm) clearance is required for free gimbal action. (Because of the slant on the
back of the 3 & 4 burner ranges, the clearance is less than what is needed for the 2 burner
range).

Please refer to separate diagram and installation instruction sheet for the mounting
dimensions and procedures for your specific model of range.

After installing the wall brackets and placing the range in position, drill a 3/8" (10mm)
hole for the sliding pin gimbal lock. If the cabinet or fitting is not strong enough to hold
the range securely in the locked position, install a metal plate (supplied) or a wooden
block with a 3/8" (10mm) hole.


                                           Gourmet Galley Range Manual              Page 9
                                                                            ENG-0019 Rev.B
The bolt should be locked into the adjoining cabinet or bulkhead whenever the range is
not in use to prevent it from swinging in rough seas. The bolt can be locked into either the
"in" or "out" position by turning the knob clockwise. For added security in rough
weather, bend up the retaining pin on the wall bracket over the gimbal knob.

Built-In Models
** This section applies only to built-in models.

Please refer to separate diagram and installation sheet for the mounting dimensions and
procedures for your specific model of range.

On built-in model stoves, you must ventilate the back of the stove enclosure. This can be
done by cutting holes at the side of the rear of the enclosure or across the back. Some
people do a very neat job of installing our built-in stove, however, please realize your
stove burners use a lot of oxygen. Therefore make sure you have access holes to supply
plenty of fresh air, either below the stove or through the adjacent cabinet side panels.
Minimum required area is 10 square inches (25 sq. cm).

Lift the hinged top burner grill and you will see the mounting hole.




Operating Your Galley Range

Lighting the Range Top Burners

1. Before lighting, please ensure burner caps are placed on burners.
2. Read and comply with all safety instructions in the vicinity of the gas and in this
   manual.
3. Turn all control knobs to the Off position.



PAGE 10                Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
4. Open the manual cylinder and solenoid valves. (Turn the manual cylinder valve in the
   counterclockwise direction, and switch the solenoid valve to the open position.)
5. Push in control knob, (as far as it will go) and turn it counterclockwise to High. At the
   same time push the spark ignition button (small button beside control knobs) until
   burner is lit.
6. Sometimes the burner will sputter for a while before igniting. Give your range 10-15
   seconds to purge the air out of the gas line.
7. Continue holding the burner control knob all the way in for about twenty (20) seconds
   after ignition. This will heat the thermocouple and allow the gas valve to stay open.
   The thermocouple is designed to cut off the gas supply to the burner if the flame
   should accidentally be extinguished.
8. This arrangement also ensures that the range is childproof to the extent that a simple
   twisting of the control knobs will not light any burners or allow gas to enter your boat.
9. If the ignition fails, turn the burner OFF and apply a lit match or lighter to it before
   turning it back to the High position.
10. You should now be able to set the flame to any desired level between High and Low
    by turning the control knob further in the counterclockwise direction.
11. To turn off the burner, turn the control knob clockwise to the Off position.
12. You must shut off both the solenoid and the manual gas cylinder valves whenever
    your vessel is unattended or if there is an emergency. Force 10 recommends that you
    also shut the cylinder valves off whenever your Galley Range is not in use.

Lighting the Oven and Broiler Burners - Manually Controlled Oven
1. It is essential to the proper operation of your oven that the stainless steel heat plate be
   placed on the bottom of each grill hanger in the oven to ensure even heat distribution.
2. Light the oven burner using the procedure described in instructions 1 to 5 for lighting
   the range top burners.
3. Close the oven door carefully to ensure that the oven burner will not be extinguished.
4. Before lighting the broiler burner (not available in all models), make sure that the
   oven rack has been adjusted to position your food at the desired height.
5. Remember that broiling is a rapid process. Broil With the Door Open. Check your
   food often, and do not run the broiler for more than 20 minutes at a time.

Setting the Oven Temperature - Manually Controlled Oven
The manually controlled oven has a thermometer mounted in the face to monitor the
exact temperature of the oven.
After lighting the oven burner at the bottom of the oven, close the oven door and keep the
burner on High until the temperature begins to reach the desired setting. Then turn the
flame down, and adjust the setting until the temperature holds at the desired level.

                                           Gourmet Galley Range Manual               Page 11

Thereafter, you need only check occasionally to ensure that it remains stable.


Lighting the Oven and Broiler Burners - Thermostatically Controlled
Oven
1. It is essential to the proper operation of your oven that the stainless steel heat plate be
   placed on the bottom of each grill hanger in the oven to ensure even heat distribution.
2. Before lighting, please ensure the oven burner cap is placed on the burner.
3. Read and comply with all safety instructions in the vicinity of the gas and in this
   manual.
4. Turn all control knobs to the Off position.
5. Open the manual cylinder and solenoid valves. (Turn the manual cylinder valve in the
   counterclockwise direction, and switch the solenoid valve to the open position.)
6. Turn the control knob to the desired temperature or to the broil position.
7. Push in blue safety shut button. At the same time push the spark ignition button until
   burner is lit.
8. Close the oven door carefully to ensure that the oven burner will not be extinguished.
9. Before lighting the broiler burner (not available in all models), make sure that the
   oven rack has been adjusted to position your food at the desired height.
10. Remember that broiling is a rapid process. Broil With the Door Open. Check your
    food often, and do not run the broiler for more than 20 minutes at a time.


Thermostatically Controlled Oven Operation

The burner will operate on high until the set temperature is reached. The burner will then
automatically reduce to a low flame. During operation the burner never goes off.

When the temperature has been reached and the flame is very low be sure to close the
oven door slowly when checking your food. To maximize the stability of this flame it was
necessary for the burner to operate with a yellow flame when on high. Do not be alarmed.
The combustion is still very clean and safe.




CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Galley Range is constructed of one of the hardest, corrosion-resistant stainless steels
available. However, the surfaces can be damaged if the proper care is not given. Please


PAGE 12                Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
follow these maintenance suggestions and you will have a good looking appliance for
years to come.

1. Do not use any abrasive chemical cleaners on the inside or outside of your range. Any
   household liquid cleaner is recommended.

2. Use a clean cloth or sponge to apply cleaners.

3. Remove stains as quickly as possible before they become "set".

4. Do not let food spills or burnt foods build up on any surface of your galley range.

5. You can use a household oven cleaner for the oven, but remember to follow the
   product manufacturer's directions.

Note: DO NOT use these cleaners on the oven face plate or oven door, as the chemicals
   will remove the silkscreening.

6. Do not use steel wool or SOS-type pads to clean any part of your range. These
   products will embed fine steel particles in the surface of the stainless steel causing it
   to "bleed" (rust) in a marine environment. Use bronze wool or some other nonmetallic
   abrasive if you must. Be aware, however, that your range has a fine finish that can be
   scratched by some abrasive pads or cleansers.

7. If you purchased our optional bronze griddle to go with your Galley Range, you
   should be able to keep it clean using regular dishwashing detergent. We also
   recommend you use brass wool to keep it looking nice - rubbing with the grain. Do
   not use a copper polish or you will end up with green eggs and ham.




PROLONGED LAY-UP

 The Force 10 Gourmet Galley Range has been designed to have a long life with every
day regular use. However, if you leave your boat unattended for a long period of time,
particularly in high heat and humid conditions, the high temperature lubricant in the gas
control valves may settle, resulting in difficulty in turning the control valves and possibly
seizure of the valve.

In the event this should occur, do not use force to free-up the valve stem. It is best to
remove the control panel from the range (pull off control knobs and remove thermometer
- it will pull out). Remove the two small Phillips head screws on the front of each control
valve. Once this is accomplished, you can remove the cap that holds the valve stem in the
valve body. Inside the body is a shaft that may also be dirty. Using a pair of tweezers,

                                           Gourmet Galley Range Manual              Page 13
                                                                            ENG-0019 Rev.B
remove the shaft. Remember its orientation inside the valve. Carefully clean the valve
stem and shaft using warm water or alcohol. Replace the shaft back in the valve,
ensuring it is in the proper position. Lubricate the valve stem with a high-temperature
lubricating grease (a small amount will do) and replace the valve and its associated cap.
Secure the screw and replace the control panel.

Note: Do a soap test on the valve after assembly to ensure there are no leaks.


TROUBLESHOOTING

If something should go wrong with the operation of your Galley Range, do not despair!
Read this section carefully and follow our suggested remedies.

If these suggestions do not resolve the difficulty, contact Force 10 directly, or consult
your dealer, quoting the model and serial number of your Galley Range. The serial
number on gimbaled models can be found on the bottom outside right panel, and on the
built-in models it is on the bottom inside left panel.

Gas Smell

1. Extinguish all open flames and smoking materials.
2. Close both manual and solenoid cylinder valves.
3. Make sure that all appliance valves are closed.
4. Ventilate all interior compartments thoroughly. Use a fan to push the air from the
   bottom of all compartments.
5. Maintaining as much ventilation as possible, open cylinder valves. Making sure that
   the appliance valves are still closed, apply a mixture of liquid detergent and water to
   all connections, checking for bubbles indicating a leak. Do not use a flame to check
   for leaks.
6. When repair of the leak(s) has been completed, test the system with the aid of the
   pressure gauge, using the procedure previously described for Fuel System Testing
   (Page 7).




Inadequate Heat - Flame Burning Low or Gas Out

1. Your system may be low on fuel - check your tank pressure gauge.



PAGE 14                Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
2. The gas cylinder valve may not be fully open - make sure the handle is turned as far as
   it will go in the counterclockwise direction.
3. The burner orifice(s) may be obstructed - when cold, take off the burner cap, clean out
   the orifice and reinstall the part. If the broiler orifice needs to be cleared, added
   caution must be taken. Inside the orifice is a `red ruby.' Check to ensure the `red
   ruby' is still inside the orifice after cleaning. If it falls out, too much gas will be sent
   to the broiler, and a new orifice will be needed. Regardless of the orifice, only use
   alcohol or a Q-tip to clean the orifice. Never use metal to clean the orifice.
4. Sometimes LPG gas will not flow as readily if the outside temperature is very low -
   i.e. below freezing.

Ignition System Fails to Spark or Begins to Spark Slowly
** Does not apply to 2-Burner models without broiler, which have piezo ignition.

1. Check the battery to ensure that it is an AA 1.5 volt, that it is still giving power, and
   that it is installed the right way. The battery holder is located on the underside of the
   stove at the bottom front right hand corner. Install a new battery if necessary. In
   certain locations, salt air can corrode the battery holder.
2. Check to see whether there is 3/32" (2mm) gap between the spark plug head (which
   should be clean) and the burner rim, and that all the wires are securely connected to
   the spark ignition box located midway down the backside of the stove. A quick way
   to check is to press the spark button, and look to see if spark is sparking between
   terminals.
3. Remove control knobs and faceplate and check the wire connections at the back of the
   spark ignition switch. Check the operation of the switch with a circuit tester.
4. Remove the stove and disassemble so that each spark ignition connecting wire can be
   checked for shorts. Sometimes a minor nick in the wire will cause a short so the spark
   plug will not spark at that burner.
5. If none of the spark plugs will spark, first replace the battery and check again. If they
   still will not spark, order a replacement spark ignition box from Force 10.

Sometimes the burner will sputter for a while before igniting. Give your range 10-15
seconds to purge the air out of the gas line.




Burner Control Valve Fails to Stay Open When Valve Control Knob is Released

1. There could be a problem with the thermocouple. The small upright attachment next
   to the burner on the range top is one end of the thermocouple.



                                           Gourmet Galley Range Manual               Page 15
                                                                             ENG-0019 Rev.B
The outside of the thermocouple is a copper tube. Inside the tube, insulated from it, is a
   nickel wire. These metals are in contact with each other only at the point that is
   exposed to the burner flame.

Remember: The Burner Control Knob must be held all the way in for twenty (20)
  seconds after ignition in order to heat the thermocouple and allow the gas valve
  to stay open.

When this point is heated by the burner flame, a small amount of electricity (1.5 millivolt)
  is generated. This electric current flows to the other end of the thermocouple that is
  tightened into the gas valve. Here it activates an electromagnet that keeps the valve
  open.

Should the burner accidentally be extinguished, electricity will no longer be generated,
   and the valve will be snapped back to the closed position by a stainless steel spring.

This is normally an isolated problem, as all thermocouples and ranges are tested at the
   factory. If necessary, however, remove the thermocouple following instructions 1
   through 14 for replacing the thermocouple. Lightly sand the end that has been
   removed from the valve with very fine sandpaper. Replace in the valve and test. If this
   does not work the thermocouple must have failed and will have to be replaced.

You can also test the thermocouple by removing the end from the valve. Heat up the other
   end with a torch or another burner on your stove. By using a good quality voltmeter,
   put one lead on the outside of the thermocouple and the other one on the far cold end.
   If the thermocouple is okay, it will show 1.5 to 2.5 millivolts on your meter.

2. The electromagnet (solenoid) inside the valve may have failed and will have to be
   replaced.




REPLACING THE THERMOCOUPLE

Tools Required         - Phillips Screwdriver
                       - 5/16" (8mm) Open Wrench or Crescent Wrench
                       - 3/8" (10mm) Open Wrench
General Information
1. Thermocouples are made out of two dissimilar metals. One end of each metal is
   fastened together. When this connection is heated up, a small amount of electricity is

PAGE 16                Gourmet Galley Range Manual
ENG-0019 Rev. B
   created (1.5 millivolt) and can be measured between the other two ends of these
   wires.
2. The outside of the thermocouple is a copper tube, which acts as a conductor. The
   inside is an insulated nickel wire, which at the other end, is separated from the copper
   wire by a very small insulating washer. This end of the thermocouple screws into the
   gas valve, which contains an electromagnet.
3. When the thermocouple is heated, the electricity generated attracts the electromagnet
   in the valve and holds the valve open. If the flame is accidentally extinguished, the
   thermocouple cools, causing the electromagnet to spring back and close the valve.
4. If the thermocouple is not holding the valve open, check first that it is screwed into
   the valve tightly enough, as a loose connection will not transfer the 1.5 millivolt. If it
   has been tightened too much, the insulating washer will be crushed, shorting out the
   thermocouple, and so it will not generate the 1.5 millivolt, and must therefore be
   replaced. Ideally, the nut should be installed finger tight, plus a 1/4 turn with a
   wrench.

Replacement Instructions
1. Get the stove on deck or on a bunk or table where you can work on it comfortably.
2. Remove both the back splash panel assembly complete with burner grill and the stove
   back panel (secured with Phillips screws).
3. Remove the screws at the top front edge which secure the front face panel.
4. Remove screws on top side edges.
5. Remove screws from upper and lower clamps that hold the oven lines and spark wire
   in position against the rear outer wall of the oven. You may have to snip the plastic
   wire tie holding the spark leads together.
6. The oven thermocouple tube is fastened down at the bottom of the oven by tie wrap
   (plastic clip), which needs to be removed.
7. Remove oven fuel line (bottom part only) with 1/2" (12mm) wrench.
8. Now slide the top burner tray out * about halfway toward the back. Be careful with
   the tubes and wires. If you remove any spark leads, mark them carefully for
   reinstallation.




                                           Gourmet Galley Range Manual              Page 17
                                                                            ENG-0019 Rev.B
* Broiler Models: The broiler fuel line must be removed before the top tray can be slid
   backward. The brass broiler orifice holder has a small Phillips screw in its right side.
   Completely remove this screw and pull out the broiler fuel feed line from the broiler.
   Now you can slide the top tray back - be careful not to bend the broiler fuel line.
1. Remove the thermocouple end from the valve using a 5/16" (8mm) wrench or small
   crescent wrench.
2. Using a 3/8" (10mm) open wrench or crescent wrench, loosen the hex nut connecting
   the thermocouple to the burner until the thermocouple is loosened from the burner.
   Replace the thermocouple and proceed to Step 11.
3. Reverse the above procedure, being extremely careful when putting the end of the
   thermocouple into the valve. If you turn too tight, you will crush the insulating washer
   and need another new thermocouple. Ideally, the nut should be installed finger tight,
   plus a 1/4 turn with a wrench. Do not force or cross thread anything.
4. Make sure all gas lines, spark ignition wires, and thermocouples are not touching
   anything sharp.
5. When it is all back together, mix some liquid soap and water and do your standard
   test for leaks with your fuel system pressurized, and all control knobs turned to OFF.

To Replace the Electromagnet (Solenoid) (#1 on Page 21)

When you remove the thermocouple from the control valve, remove the larger nut with a
9/16" (14mm) wrench. The electromagnet should fall out - if not, push the shaft where
the knob should be and it will come out easily. Install the new electromagnet with the
spring end first. Replace the nut, and re-install thermocouple back into the control valve.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
