    Vulcan saftey vALVE

    Has anyone found an alternative for the Vulcan safety valve 407798-6R. We are told they are obsolete and they are not available. You can remove them and have them rebuilt in three weeks which is not going to fly. No retrofits out there?

    What is the model number of the oven ? I replaced one this year with no availability problem.

    We have been talking with hobart who owns Vulcan and no one has them made by Robert Shaw what I understand is that they have mercury in them. A replacement is on the way but not now. you would think that they would replace it with a new one first.

    There are still plenty around of different styles with mercury in them. Allpionts and FMP have quite a few.

    I bought a mercury flame proving switch not to long ago. Hobart convection oven. Very pricey.

    Yes, Hobart is very pricey - - but you can get most parts someplace else much less expensive.

    We get a lot of parts from Hobart and it must be a good price because our punching person is so good he could get something for less than free. Plus there is something about OEM parts. Just got two from Hobart and they sent a letter and a return box with the valves.
