Can you clarify a couple of things for me please: Is this a gas hob and gas oven, or is the oven electric? If it is gas, does it have a pilot light? (and is the pilot light on?) If gas, does the oven light for a moment and then go out or does it not even light?
Hello, The thermocouple may have buildup on it. Try to chean the thermocouple which is the small rod going through the oven pilot. You will have to blowout the pilot and clean the thermo with fine frit sandpaper or some guys use a dollar bill. Just shine it up light the pilot and see if it lights.
If your oven still uses a pilot light, it also probably has a thermocouple positioned in the pilot's flame path to detect whether if is safe to turn on the main burner.
When the thermocouple fails, the oven thinks the pilot light is not lit and will not let gas flow to the primary burners.
The part isn't costly (should be <$20 US) but replacing it may require some expensive labor.
Ok you did not mention if your oven or stive had pilot lights or igniters. Given you asked the question how too turn it back on I have to assume it does not have electronic igniters. You need to light the pilot lights. There are 2 in top that are between each of the 2 burner sets. If you can not gain access to the pilot light by lifting the top of the stove up you can use a fire starter type lighter and re-light them. Sometimes they will self light if you just use a match on the burners.
As for the oven you can gain access 2 ways to the pilot light. One is to unlatch and remove the oven lower inside panel. The pilot light will be near the burner head. Just light it. The other is to remove the broiler drawer and reach way back in there to light the pilot light.
Again if you have igniter ignition all you have to do is turn on a burner or the oven. Good Luck.
gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition
systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a
'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition
system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition"
systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the
oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems
and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware
though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark
doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does
also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't
been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the
'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system
