Range Top Pilot Lights

When the pilot light goes out on the 31000PAW models, will gas continue to come in and cause a dangerous situation?

    I have the same problem and now I am afraid to light the pilot light - first of all it is way in the back instead of the front and I can't even see where you light it.

Use a bar-b-que lighter with a loing handle to lite pilot, and yes if the pilot goes out there will be a constant supply of gas going inot home, very minimal amount but as a cumiltve effect not very smart thing.

I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top


most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

I am wondering how I'm supposed to light the pilot on a Hotpoint stove. I think I'm supposed to lift up the cooktop, but I can't get to lift up. It feels like its locked/screwed down somehow but I c


Hot point has 2 pilot lights on top... light them... then go to oven and light that one... it is a safety feature... no pilot on top kills the pilot in the stove.
.. since gas is heavier then air the company made sure if there was a gas leak on top that it would not be caught by oven and blow up.

Is there a gas pilot light that stays lit all the time or does it have an electric pilot light that glows red to start the oven.Either way if it's a gas pilot the thermocouple is bad, if electric the igniter is bad.

One of the top burner pilot lights will not stay


You probably have grease that has gotten into the pilot. Turn off the gas to the pilot and detach the pilot tubing and pilot tip. It sometimes helps to take a propane torch and heat up the pilot tip and tubing, paying special attention to the first bend from the pilot tip. Get it red hot and tap out any ash from the inside. You may have to **** out the tubing with a piece of bare wire or blow it out with WD-40. With the oven pilot, check the pilot flame. If low, adjust. If OK, replace the thermocouple. If neither of these corrects the problem, replace the pilot satety. I always recommend a new thermocouple with a new pilot safety.

My magic chef kitchen range oven won't turn on, no gas


Some of the models require you to push in the oven thermostat knob to set the pilot if it blows out. So try pushing in the knob and hold it while lighting the pilot. When the pilot lights continue to hold the knob in for about a minute. When you let go of the knob the pilot should stay lit. If it does not stay lit then try it one more time. If it continues to go out the thermocouple or aso might be bad and will need service.

Pilot light on GE oven, less than 8 years old keeps going out


the pilot and burner are usually covered, so it's doubtful that grease buildup would be a problem. it's probable that the thermocouple is defective or not positioned in the flame properly. the thermocouple tells the gas valve that there is a flame and it's okay to send gas through and the oven lights. if the t-couple is bad, it's fairly cheap to replace. however, if you could smell the gas odor from downstairs, the gas valve itself could be bad and that is not cheap to replace. get a competent repairman to check it out and turn off the gas while your'e waiting. you could have an explosive situation.

Pilot lights


Good news. All gas providers, the company you get your gas from and pay your bill to have a free servce where they send out a technician to light your pilot lights for you. Just give them a call.
