The pilot light will only stay lit when you hold the pilot reset button in, as soon as you let the button out the pilot light goes out and the actual burners never come on. Any ideas?


Gas line is clogged if your pilot lite goes out - They got rid of pilot stoves because the pilot was always lit and using gas.

And without a lit pilot no way you can get the burner to ignite unless you use a match, assuming you have gas going to the burner!

My whirlpool gas range is getting gas and is clean but will not ignite.


Not knowing whether you have an electric ignition or pilot I will make suggestions for both.
Electric -
There is a thermal sensor that detects if it hot or lit. So if this sensor is bad or shorted it will not try to ignite, however if it is every burner / oven device, then its probably the computer that controls the igniter.
Pilot -
Typicaly the piloted gas stoves will not supply gas to the burners / oven if that pilot is not burning, however there is a sensor similar to the on on the electric ignition that lets the stove know if the pilot is lit. Unfortunately this sensor is not electric in almost all cases and is not easy to replace.

If you have the parts list, this sensor will be called a thermocouple usually in both types, but can be called other things. I would go with this and if all else fails replace the whole ignition system (electric) or pilot valve (piloted).

I smell gas and my burners wont light - is there a pilot light in these ranges?


The best way to find out if if your stove has a pilot light, is to lift the top panel of the range . The pilot will usually be located between the burners. Typically you will have two pilots. One for the left and one for the right. The pilot light will ignite with a match without having to turn the burner knobs to the "on" position. Good luck

If the gets give no gas then sounds like a Thermocouple, this is a device that allows the gas to come on after a period of time ensuring that the pilot is lit and heated up this thermocouple, once it heats it then allows gas to enter and ignite the main burner..hope this helps ,please leave feedback.

Pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range


Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

Pilot and burners


You need to check a couple of things, first is the flame sensor, second is the thermostat. Without anymore detailed info this is the most I can give you.
