    My oven is an older model without an ignitor button. However, I noticed something in the back, rear bottom drawer under the oven. When I lit a match and turned the heat on, lo and behold, there was fire! Thanks. If nothing else, your response made me look a little closer.

Thanks so much. My daughter called in a panic. She could not find the pilot. I love that you told me where she should look and added that helpful tip to turn on the oven! Problem solved.

Oven not working. gas on stove top is working. not sure if gas is not getting to oven or if there is another problem causing the oven not to heat up.


Check the pilot light assembly.Make sure the pilot is lit.If it looks good the thermocouple may be bad. If the pilot is lit,I would call for the repairman.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    Where is the pilot light for imperial range oven


    Hello. I will try to guide you, in the area that you described, there should be a pilot safety valve, and usually they have a red button you depress in order to get gas to the pilot. The pilot is usually beyond the safety, if you follow the pipe from the safety, into the burner area, that will lead you to the pilot. Put your match,lighter of choice there, while holding in the red button. wait approx. 30 to 60 seconds, then release. If all is well, your pilot is now lit, however you still may need some attention, like cleaning the pilot and orifice. If not, you will need possibly a thermocouple for the pilot/safety, or a safety. Either of those I would suggest you call a local service company, check your phone book under "restaurant equipment repair"

    Hope that helps, and thank you.

    Gas oven dosnt work


    the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

    The pilot light in my natural gas oven is lit. When I turn the oven on, a secondary pilot light is lit under the oven burner but the oven doesn't heat. Is it the thermometer or the thermocoupler or...


    The secondary pilot you speak of should envelope the end of the thermocouple. That heats up the fluid inside, which expands and forces fluid to open the oven gas valve. If the end of the thermocouple is enveloped in the flame, but you have no oven ignition, you will have to replace the oven valve. It is the part the temp knob is attached to and also has the thermocouple attached to it.

    Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.

    The pilot light is lit to light the main burner. First off, is your pilot light lit or is the igniter lit. There are two thermal sensor in the oven. One is above your pilot light and will not let the pilot light stay lit unless there is a flame. Secondly, you have a thermal sensor in your oven wired all the way to the switch to turn the oven on. If it thinks that it is at temp, then it will never turn on. This sensor may become bad or the case of my oven break. But if these are good, you many have a clogged burning unit underneath. Cleaning according to the owners manual may correct that. Check your owners manual to see what is user serviceable. Gas is nothing to play with.
